Does L-Theanine help against cancer?
L-theanine is similar to L-glutamine which is amino acid and is found primarily in particular plants and fungal species. Patients receiving chemotherapy should discuss the use of L-theanine with their physicians because safety data in cancer patients is lacking. Although lab studies suggest that L-theanine has antitumor properties, human data is lacking. Preclinical studies suggest L-theanine enhances chemotherapeutic effects of doxorubicin and idarubicin and alleviates adverse effects from use of these agents. L-theanine was shown to increase the antitumor activity of certain chemotherapy drugs for example doxorubicin which is used to treat several cancers like breast cancer.
