Tao in a Bottle
60 Vegetarian Capsules
450 mg per Capsule
Tao in a Bottle™ is a revolutionary anti-stress formulation exclusively from Ron Teeguarden’s Dragon Herbs. It is in fact a kind of “super pill,” in that it is both modern and ancient, using the finest ingredients in the world made by cutting edge technology. Tao in a Bottle™ promotes peaceful alertness and supports mental focus – a perfect Yin and Yang balance. Tao in a Bottle™ does not cause drowsiness so it may be used by active individuals performing their normal daily or nightly tasks. Tao in a Bottle™ is one of Dragon Herbs’ top selling encapsulated products. Its main active ingredient is the amino acid L-Theanine, derived naturally from green tea. L-Theanine is a unique ingredient that has powerful anti-stress actions when consumed in the correct dose. It promotes relaxation without causing drowsiness. L-Theanine is an important component of green tea (Camellia sinensis). This is the component of green tea that makes it calming in spite of the fact that tea contains caffeine. Zen masters drink green tea before meditation to simultaneously improve focus and alertness and at the same time (paradoxically) to maintain transcendent calm. L-Theanine is a safe and fast-acting stress and anxiety-relieving phytonutrient. It works within minutes. Studies have shown that when L-Theanine is assimilated in the small intestine, it stimulates the brain’s production of alpha waves, which are associated with a sense of profound relaxation, mental focus, and mental clarity. L-Theanine also helps you stay relaxed by supporting your body’s production of other calming amino acids, including dopamine, GABA, and L-tryptophan. In addition, Tao in a Bottle™ is a powerful adaptogenic formula that is made from the concentrated extracts of eight of the greatest adaptogens (tonic herbs) in the world: Duanwood Reishi, Ginseng, Eleuthero (Siberian Ginseng), Gynostemma, Schizandra, Tibetan Rhodiola, Astragalus and Ginkgo leaf.
The L- Theanine in Tao in a Bottle™ is derived from green tea. Most L-Theanine in the American market is not from green tea, but is produced by yeast. We think the tea-derivation of L-Theanine, along with the adaptogenic herbs, makes Tao in a Bottle™ the best L-Theanine product available in America. Tao in a Bottle™ contains no caffeine. Tao in a Bottle™ has cumulative benefits because of its inclusion of major tonic herbs that help develop one’s adaptability, and thus the ability to handle stress better, over time.

Stress Is Relative
The same amount of stress will be felt differently by different people. Most successful people have more stress in their life and can handle more stress. Success and stress often go hand in hand. The good news is, stress resilience can be nurtured by practicing different life techniques and by taking adaptogenic herbs.
Fight or Flight – our innate stress response mechanism is putting us into a severe energy overdraft
Humans were once regularly at risk of being attacked by wild animals or hostile people. Our bodies still respond to threats by secreting chemicals that trigger a set of physiological changes in the body and thus enhance our ability to run away or defend ourselves. This is our stress response, called “fight or flight.” It includes intense stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system and the adrenal glands resulting in increased respiration rates and higher blood pressure and blood sugar levels as well as increased heart rate and force of contractions. At the same time, there is a decrease in digestive secretions. In cases of acute stress, the situation is often resolved quickly, and normal physiology returns. However, if stress is prolonged or chronic, the body’s calls-to-continuous-action becomes detrimental. The body expends a great amount of energy keeping itself in a heightened state of readiness. When weakened by prolonged stress, the body’s ability to maintain homeostasis can be compromised, and illness can, and most likely will result. Modern day stressors are mostly chronic and neither fight nor flight is the correct way to respond to stress any more.
L-theanine is the ingredient in Tao in a Bottle that allows the body to relax under stress without the damaging effects of fight or flight. L-theanine is an amino acid found naturally only in green tea. 50% of tea’s amino acid is L-theanine. L-theanine counterbalances the stimulatory effect of caffeine. This really sets tea apart from coffee. Coffee does not contain L-theanine and can be excessively stimulating, resulting in jitteriness. Tea is a stimulant, yet, it is also a relaxant at the same time. Sufficient consumption of L-theanine promotes a sense of relaxation and serenity that is usually experienced by accomplished practitioners of yoga, meditation and Qi Gong after practicing their respective arts. A typical cup of tea contains about 10 mg of L-theanine. L-theanine is clearly part of the magic of tea, far and away the world’s most popular beverage after water. Tao in a Bottle contains 100 mg of L-theanine in each capsule.
Adaptability is the measure of life. Adaptability is the ability to adapt to stress and changes in one’s environment. The ability to adapt optimally is a key to survival and success, and the inability to adapt will ultimately result in failure, discomfort, disease and death. The adaptogens are proven entities for fighting stress. They demonstrate a nonspecific enhancement of the body’s ability to resist a stressor. Adaptogenic herbs help us maintain balance under stressful circumstances and recover from stress more quickly and effectively. They protect us from many of the influences in nature that cause us to age more quickly, including pollution, radiation, toxins, and the free radicals caused by stress. All the adaptogenic herbs used in Tao in a Bottle have been proven to boost our immune system, while mitigating excessive immune responses such as those that cause auto-immune disorders and allergies. Adaptogenic herbs are extremely beneficial.
