L-Theanine is known for its relaxing effects and is commonly used as a dietary supplement to promote relaxation, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve sleep quality. It is also used in the food and beverage industry to enhance flavor and promote relaxation in products such as tea, energy drinks, and chewing gum.
