Tea & Theanine for Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Sunday 25 January 2009

Adrienne Dellwo Teareports on the benefits of drinking tea – or, more specifically, an amino acid found in black and green tea that can help alleviate the symptoms of ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia.

The amino acid is theanine, and Adrienne says that:

“Theanine's scientifically proven effects include:

• Boosting mental alertness and vigor
• Lowering blood pressure and bad cholesterol
• Regulating the sleep/wake cycle
• Relaxation and lowering anxiety
• Boosting energy
• Increasing anti-tumor activity
• Improving memory and slowing brain shrinkage due to aging or illness
• Protecting the body and brain from toxins”

Adrienne goes on to say “This is all backed by scientific studies, and what’s more – you can get a beneficial effect from just a few servings of tea a day.”
