Dyskinesia

Posted by Reviewer2139526 on Dec 02, 2016

A previous review mentioned risks of dyskinesia. I googled it and found the opposite information. The Antiparkinsonian and Antidyskinetic Mechanisms of Mucuna pruriens in the MPTP-Treated Nonhuman Primate Chronic treatment with levodopa (LD) in Parkinson's disease (PD) can cause drug induced dyskinesias. Mucuna pruriens endocarp powder (MPEP) contains several compounds including natural LD and has been reported to not cause drug-induced dyskinesias. We evaluated the effects of Mucuna pruriens to determine if its underlying mechanistic actions are exclusively due to LD. We first compared MPEP with and without carbidopa (CD), and LD + CD in hemiparkinsonian (HP) monkeys. Each treatment ameliorated parkinsonism. We then compared the neuronal firing properties of the substantia nigra reticulata (SNR) and subthalamic nucleus (STN) in HP monkeys with MPEP + CD and LD + CD to evaluate basal ganglia circuitry alterations. Both treatments decreased SNR firing rate compared to HP state. However, LD+CD treatments significantly increased SNR bursting firing patterns that were not seen with MPEP+CD treatments. No significant changes were seen in STN firing properties. We then evaluated the effects of a water extract of MPEP. Oral MPWE ameliorated parkinsonism without causing drug-induced dyskinesias. The distinctive neurophysiological findings in the basal ganglia and the ability to ameliorate parkinsonism without causing dyskinesias strongly suggest that Mucuna pruriens acts through a novel mechanism that is different from that of LD.

This product makes a difference

Posted by 5719002163136740145 on Oct 12, 2016

I have been trying different amounts of capsules in a day, going from 1 in the morning and 1 for lunch, to 3 in the morning and 2 for lunch, and my trouble with primary tremor has been becoming less. I am happy that we have a natural solution around, and that the presentation of 100 mg is available.

Excellent product

Posted by Reviewer3075222 on Oct 10, 2016

This is an easy to swallow capsule. I tested it for my body and it was acceptable as a supplement. I test myself daily for dosage and usually take 3 xapsules. It seems to help my muscle cramps and slight intention tremor.

Unsure

Posted by 4681119648810339227 on Aug 05, 2016

Only rated 3 stars because I keep reading conflicting information on this product. I am unsure if this product is beneficial or not and I have read using this could further damage dopamine receptors??... I cannot give a informative review as I am unsure if I myself will continue using the product until I seek further medical advice..... oh wait bummer I forgot doctors won't comment on natural medicine!
