Theanine is an amino acid derivative commonly found in tea. On 21 April 2003 the Brigham and Women's Hospital released details of a research project which indicated that theanine may help the body's immune system response when fighting infection. The study included a four week trial that included 11 coffee drinkers and 10 tea drinkers. Each consumed 600ml of coffee or black tea during the four week trial. Analysis found that the production of antibacterial proteins was up to five times higher in the tea drinkers than the coffee drinkers.This was an indicator of a stronger immune response.
