    Which is superior?

    I know that theanine also has anti-cortisol effects and pro-gaba effects, and that beta-alanine may have some sort of pro-histamine qualities so I'm leaning towards theanine powder but am still undecided.

    The answer will likely influence my future supplement choices.

    edit: I also have no means of getting cyproheptadine or any of the stronger things.

    Why don’t you try them yourself?

    Not sure I have a specific answer for you, but I can say that theanine is the best OTC supplement for anxiety that I've tried. 1 gram of theanine (which is more than most people take) is more powerful than .5 lorazepam for me. It's also extremely safe. Great for emergency situations.

    Beta alanine does definitely reduce Serotonin

    Theanine is great for calmness and relaxation, though beta alanine reportedly has benefits for exercise and gaba receptors. Try both, but I'd vote for theanine personally.

    Beta alanine depletes taurine I think. I noticed really bad problems after taking it for about a year. Take theanine.
