During a symposium at the Association for Psychological Sciences Conference, world-renowned researchers from Swinburne University in Australia announced the results of a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover trial in which a beverage (neuro BLISS) significantly cut down stress.

The trial's statistically significant results include:
  • Acute stress reduction
  • Reduction in cortisol levels
  • Shifting of brain waves to the alpha spectrum as confirmed by magnetoencephalography (MEG). Alpha spectrum brain waves are associated with a relaxed state of focused concentration.
This marks the first use of MEG technology to evaluate the effects of a natural ingredient presented in a functional beverage.

L-Theanine is found in green tea and is the primary functional ingredient of a proprietary formula found only in neuro BLISS.

Chris Noonan, MPH, working on behalf of NeuroBrands stated that the research was truly ground breaking and the company is proud to play a role in developing this science.

The results are due to be published in a prestigious scientific journal.
