The Signs…

Cancer Risk? There will be an estimated 1.9 million new cancer cases in the US in 2022 (1). We know cancer can be both genetic and environmental but that it is most often triggered by various types of internal or external stressors.  

Anxious? Anxiety affects 18.1% of the population each year (2). That’s about 40 million people in the US alone. 

Distracted? We check our “phones” every 12 minutes (3). These constant distractions (among others) can have the same effect as losing a night’s sleep. 

High-Blood Pressure? Nearly half of all adults in the US (47%) have hypertension (4) which puts them at increased risk of heart disease and stroke--both leading causes of death. 

Catching Colds and Flus more often? And, of course, our immune systems seem to be under attack from a new strain of something every time we turn around. 

Trouble Sleeping? Almost half of all Americans say they feel sleepy during the day at least three days per week (5)

What’s worse is that as a first responder, you’re more likely to suffer from these types of conditions due to the unique stressors of your job. 

So what’s a Thinline Hero like yourself supposed to do to stay healthy?

One Solution…

There’s an often-overlooked amino acid that…

  • Promotes anxiety and stress relief
  • Boosts focus
  • Helps strengthen the immune system
  • Assists in making cancer treatments more effective
  • And even supports healthy blood pressure

All with just 250-400 mg per day of this amino acid. 

What is it? 

It’s L-Theanine, one of the key ingredients in our  Night Shift formula. 

Let’s take a closer look…

How L-Theanine Works…

Discovered by Japanese scientists in 1949, L-theanine is most often foud in tea leaves. It can also be found in some mushrooms. 

According to research from  Psychology Today:

“L-theanine promotes relaxation and facilitates sleep by contributing to a number of changes in the brain:

  • Boosts levels of GABA and other calming brain chemicals like dopamine and serotonin.
  • Lowers levels of ‘excitatory’ brain chemicals that are linked to stress and anxiety.
  • Enhances alpha brain waves which are known to promote ‘wakeful relaxation’.”

  • Unlike alcohol or sedatives, L-Theanine promotes this relaxed state without sedation. Obviously as a first responder who could be on call at any moment this is a very valuable benefit. 

    Another benefit first responders like yourself will appreciate is that L-theanine can increase attention span and reaction time and it may even help improve accuracy. 

    As mentioned above, the ideal dose for L-theanine seems to be between 100 and 400 mg per day. That’s why we created  Night Shift with 400mg of L-theanine to help you reset and restore your body and mind from the extreme stressors of your job. 

    While we are not doctors, our research shows L-theanine is well tolerated by most people. Really the only people that should not supplement with L-theanine are women who are pregnant or anyone with low-blood pressure.
