I've been taking this product for a couple weeks now, and feel I can give an honest review now. I take several supplements, but this one is remarkable. It really does help my mood. I feel more upbeat and positive at work. I've also noticed it has a positive effect on both my workout and my dreams. I've been advised not to take my B vitamins (namely B6) while I am taking this product- at least not until the L-Dopa has had a chance to cross the blood-brain-barrier (BBB). I will be ordering more Dopa Macuna soon, and would like a much larger bottle next time. Two thumbs up!
I've noticed a dramatic drop in my sugar/carb cravings since starting this. I think the body can adjust to it over time, but it sure seems to be helping.

I noticed its bad for the liver, did some research, indeed it is. (You can start noticing it after using it for like a week or two) Boosts mood and cognitive function (nootropic), effect seems to be mild to average. IMO not worth it.
Seems to work

Like many other herbal mood adjusters, this one is quite mild. But I do notice that my mood is a bit brighter when I take it.

Great stuff. Improves mood for sure. A question though on the contents. It says 800mg Mucuna providing 15% natural L-Dopa. Then it says on the ingredients 120mg L-Dopa (as well as the 800mg mucuna). Is this 120mg an actual addition of L-Dopa or just a reference to the 15% of the 800mg equaling 120mg? It's not clear. I'm knocking one star off as the price has gone up every time I've ordered.
