    Frayed nerves need speedy relief. The trouble is that many anti-anxiety drugs cause drowsiness, so they're not appropriate for daytime. Not so with an amino acid called L-theanine, which increases alpha brain waves, keeping you calm, yet alert. Also, Suntheanine, a brand of L-theanine, doesn't take days or weeks to produce the desired effects. It acts in as little as 30 minutes, and can last for up to 12 hours.

    On the Other: Food Can Slow the Delivery Time

    L-theanine supplements are absorbed through the intestinal tract. Therefore, if you eat a heavy meal at the time you take the supplement, it can take two or more hours before you notice effects, since the stomach has to empty itself first.

    Bottom Line

    For fast delivery, take Suntheanine on an empty stomach, or with an ultra-light meal of fresh fruits. Suntheanine is available in pill form, or in various beverages such as VitaminWater. You'll find it online or in retail health food stores across the country.
