L-Theanine, an amino acid, can help ADHD for adults and kids.
I saw this segment on the 700 club today regarding the treatment of ADHD with the natural substance of L-Theanine. I thought this was such important information I had to get a hub out immediately. Since ADHD is such a huge epidemic for children and Adults in the united states this truly seems like the thing to do instead of prescription drugs.
L-theanine is a free (non-protein) amino acid found almost exclusively in tea plants (Camellia sp.). It is an anxiety reducer and mood enhancer which increases alpha waves and alertness. It has a significant effect on the reduction of neorotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin which give the results of improved memory and learning ability.
The segment on the 700 club showed two children who were twins and had ADHD. They had been on Ritalin their whole life and had severe side-effects from the drug. Specifically not wanting to eat and developing very slowly because of the nutritional ramifications. As we all know Ritalin is highly addictive and many people use the drug to lose weight or get high. Not good for our kids.
The twins start using L-Theanine in tablet form. They were night and day compared to being on the Ritalin. It was truly a miracle. They were eating every couple of hours. They were doing fantastic in school and not jumping of the walls. They were calm, active, making great grades and happy.
We need to make a concerted effort to get our kids off of drugs. We have such a drug problem in this country and prescription drugs seem to be outpacing the rest. How can you connect with your inner divine spirit when you take these harmful prescriptions? And how can your kids?
If you go on the 700 club website I am sure you can see the segment. And if you google L-Theanine you can find tons of information on the amino acid as well as how to get it.
