Green tea comes from a plant called Camellia sinensis, commonly known as the "tea plant." It was originated in East Asia and has been used since ancient times to treat everything from headaches to depression. Although it is often known for its alkaloids which include caffeine and provides stimulant effects, green tea also contains L-theanine, an amino acid studied for its calming effects on the nervous system. Today, numerous studies have proven that green tea helps to reduce anxiety while simultaneously boosting brain function, including memory and attention.
