Source Naturals, Mucuna Dopa, 100 mg, 120 Capsules15 Reviews
Expiration Date: Nov 2018
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

iHerb Customer Reviews
iHerb is a terrific place to deal with- their prices (including shipping) in most cases are the best. This stuff does work. I notice a calming effect and mood-lift with this product as well as more focus and energy. I've read that it's good to keep the dose low and one cap seems to do it. Also read that taking a break, 5 days on 2 days off is a good idea and also helps to keep the low dose effective. I take it in the morning on an empty stomach, about an hour before eating. I feel it working in about 15 minutes. I also take DLPA, which has similar effects, although mucuna seems smoother. I take 5-htp at night, which I heard was a good idea when taking mucuna and helps with sleep. I like that this brand tells you the amount of l-dopa (100 mgs)is in each cap.
I have been taking this for nearly 3 weeks and really feel so much better - from the first day on half a capsule (just in case of side effects!) I slept well for the first time in years. I am now sleeping very well, dreaming and I cant remember how long since that happened. Ive been seriously bothered by the FMS brain fog of poor memory and cognition and am amazed how much better this is - massive improvement and my mood is also improved, plus my sense of humour is improving! My FMS pains are improving too although it was the brain fog that has affected me the most. I seriously recommend this product if you have fibromyalgia, Chronic fatigue or ME and have a look at www.drdryland.com - I cant explain what a difference this is making to my quality of life - honestly!
