L-Theanine, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) and melatonin have all been shown to
independently improve sleep quality and quantity, and/or lessen anxiety.
L-Theanine is an amino acid found almost exclusively in tea, which influences
the central nervous system through a number of mechanisms, primarily by
influencing levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine, gamma-aminobutyric acid
(GABA), serotonin, norepinephrine and glutamate. These effects cause a
significant increase in alpha brain wave activity, indicative of a state of
wakeful relaxation, increased performance under stress, improved learning and
concentration, as well as decreased anxiety.
5-HTP is the intermediary between L-tryptophan and serotonin, a key
neurotransmitter associated with sleep, mood, and anxiety. 5-HTP bypasses the
rate limiting enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase, which normally limits the
conversion of tryptophan to serotonin.
Melatonin is also closely related, and is formed by conversion of serotonin in
the pineal gland. Known to regulate many biological rhythms, including the
circadian cycle, melatonin has shown clinical benefit for inducing sleep or
adjusting sleep cycles. Randomized trials have found it to reduce sleep onset
latency and improve perceived quality of sleep, without impairing daytime
