But are the 200 units of calming theanine that its new beverage contains
gram units or milligram units? (The spin-off press on the product is wildly

100 mg. (or to pass it up altogether if they have very low blood pressure).
To confirm whether you might benefit at all, take the Questionnaire at juliarosscures.com
and see how you score on Overstressed Type 3. If your scores are high, your brain is producing suboptimal amounts of its naturally calming neurotransmitter, GABA or your adrenals are malfunctioning. Theanine and the other calming amino acids I recommend at my clinic and in my books, can help raise those levels (very quickly!).
