What's in it? Ingredients, substances, chemicals, composition
Mucuna Pruriens extract is a Dietary Supplement that has L-DOPA. Alkaloids, coumarins, flavonoids, triterpenes and saponins and other chemicals are also found in this plant.

HPLC tested: We searched several ingredient suppliers before we found a high quality material that tested accurately and had the right L-DOPA content of 15%. The HPLC testing itself cost more than 1,000 dollars. You are guaranteed to have exactly what it says on the bottle. This product is manufactured in the USA.

Why 15% L-DOPA extract and not higher?
There are Mucuna products sold over the counter that have a higher percentage of L-DOPA. However, the long term safety of high percentage L-DOPA use is of concern. For the time being we believe a 15% extract is an excellent balance between too little and too much L-DOPA.

Suggested Use
As a dietary supplement, take one capsule in the morning with or without food or as recommended by a qualified healthcare professional.

Information, historical background
Mucuna pruriens, one of the popular Ayurvedic herbs, is also known as velvet bean or cowage. Mucuna has been used for generations or centuries in India. This herb has antioxidant properties.

Testosterone effect, bodybuilding, human growth hormone HGH
Q. I have seen forum posts online regarding the testosterone-increasing effects of mucuna supplement, as a result of the supposed human growth hormones it contains. Even as a 24 yr old male, I have no interest in gaining big bulky muscle mass and am mainly interested in mucuna plant for the dopamine enhancing effects. Some of the reports I read even stated a discontinuation of use due to overwhelming muscle gain. Does mucuna supplement have any significant effects on testosterone production and human growth hormones (HGH)? I understand some mucuna pruriens products have different extraction forms, etc. and thus will vary from one to the other, so it is possible one company's mucuna supplement might be different from other brands.
A. We do not think this supplement is of benefit for bodybuilding. We have not seen enough research yet to know how, or if, testosterone levels or HGH levels are raised, lowered or not affected. Not enough human trials have been done with Mucuna pruriens supplements to determine its influence on human growth hormone and testosterone levels.

Q. I see that the mucuna L-dopa content is 15% whereas other manufacturers are listed as between 10% and 60%. Might this amount still be effective for producing the supposed dopamine increasing effects?
A. There are many substances in Mucuna pruriens herb, besides L-DOPA, that have a clinical effect. The enhancement of dopamine is only one of many ways Mucuna pruriens herb influences the body and mind. There are quite a number of different Mucuna supplements on the market with varying levels of L-DOPA percentages and other constituents within the herb. The only way to tell if a Mucuna supplement will work for your needs is to try each different product since you may get different results from each one. Higher L-DOPA concentrations may not necessarily be a better option since some of the other constituents of the herb may be removed while concentrating the extract for a higher L-DOPA potency.

Q. Why is it that your product mucuna pruriens extract l-dopa has less L-dopa percentage than some other mucuna pruriens products that I have seen. Your L-dopa is 15% where as I am seeing 40% by some other companies.
A. Historically, Mucuna pruriens was used by Ayurvedic doctors in a non-concentrated form, only as a powder which has a small percentage of L-DOPA. Over the past few years scientists have been able to concentrate the amount of L-DOPA in Mucuna pruriens and there are now a variety of Mucuna pruriens products on the market with different L-DOPA amounts. There are a number of compounds within Mucuna herb that are active and have a physiologic effect besides L-DOPA. Sometimes making L-DOPA too concentrated in a Mucuna product may be at the expense of the other compounds. There has been very few studies in humans with Mucuna supplements and it is not clear which L-DOPA concentration is the best to use. We feel 15 percent is a reasonable concentration. There is a risk with high concentration products that it could be harmful to the body when used for long periods. We are cautious and suggest the 15% L-DOPA extract to be a good balance.

Combining with other supplements
Is it okay to take mucuna pruriens extract pills the same day as Passion Rx with Yohimbe?
A. Both pills are potent and we suggest not using them the same day. You can alternate their use.

Protein intake
Q. I am ordering the mucuna pruriens 15% l-dopa supplement. When you take synthetic l-dopa you have to reduce protein intake or you don't get the same symptom relief for Parkinson's disease. My healthcare providers don't know enough about mucuna pruriens herb to answer the question, does one need to reduce protein intake with the mucuna pruriens herb, or does it not matter because it is a natural product?
A. To the best of our knowledge the benefits of Mucuna herb do not seem to rely on protein intake. It is best to take the Mucuna herb about half an hour or so before breakfast on an empty stomach for best absorption. If needed another capsule can be taken before lunch.

Combining with Eye improving herbal formula
Q. I am placing an order for the Mucuna Pruriens extract supplement 200 mg. I would also like to order the Eyesight Rx vision formula to help improve my vision. Is there any danger in taking these two products at the same time?  Are there any restrictions or precautions I should be aware of?
A. It is best to first learn for a week or so how each one of these products works for you by itself. When combining, lower dosages are advised and medical approval is suggested.
