[00:00:00] James: Awaken enlighten and inspire to better ways of living. My name is James, and this is the meet James show where I seek to inspire others through my own curiosity. And today we are talking about. One of the most popular. Men most highly rated nootropics. One that I use every single day. And it’s one that is within reach and that is caffeine and L-Theanine
[00:00:24] I mean most people. particularly people who are poor caffeine metabolizers. Often experience negative side effects of caffeine, including jitters. Nervousness. And by adding L-Theanine. To their coffee or their caffeine intake. This smooths out the jitters. I absolutely love it. It gives me several hours of really intense focus every morning.
[00:00:50] So for this stack, use a ratio of four parts two one part caffeine. So for example, 400 [00:01:00] milligrams of L-Theanine with 100 milligrams of caffeine, which would be about a cup and a half of coffee. But if we’re being honest, our coffee cups at home, or are at least 12 ounces. So. You may want to start with a smaller dose, such as 200 milligrams of L-theanine.
[00:01:16] I mean, just to see how your body adjust to it. Typically dissolve it under my tongue, but you can blend it with your coffee depending on the form that you purchased. I use a pure extract form that I have of L-Theanine, meaning that I absolutely love because it has sort of a sweet taste to it. And it, it dissolves very easily under my tongue.
[00:01:34] So the beauty of the stack is that. Nature has already given us a perfect kind of pre-packaged combination of caffeine. And Now, here we are manually adjusting these compounds. Into our intake, but , this combination of molecules occurs in nature. Most notably The highest caffeine and
[00:01:54] Dean and content found in tea leaves is actually in black tea and hours. When I read that, I [00:02:00] remember thinking, you know, I drink a lot of sweet tea growing up. Now, aside from the high glycemic load that you’re taking with a sweet tea I remember being, having a very smooth black tea drinking experience.
[00:02:11] Now, second to that is. Is green tea and also has a very nice level of L-Theanine a small level of caffeine.
[00:02:22] Caffeine and LTE and a make a particularly convenient combination. During times when you don’t want the excess stimulation of caffeine. In isolation. Such as a leak. The evening dinner or the later stages of a Workday. So when a cup of coffee by itself might keep you awake at night. Have a little healthy eating with it.
[00:02:42] And it will smooth it out. There are some brands that mix in into their coffee, blends, different cold-brew blends, like super coffee. They are not sponsored on the show, but that is one that I particularly love to drink when I’m not adding an in myself. It’s much more affordable to, to add it into your coffee or [00:03:00] supplement it yourself.
[00:03:01] And you can find those on Amazon. And I can post a few links of those, if you would like to follow up with those yourself. My name is James and I hope you found a real value in this today. I’m talking about one of my favorite nootropic combinations that is caffeine and L-Theanine. The full transcription of this podcast episode is available on our email@example.com.
