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 a habit of tasting the herbal meds I purchase, from experience you can learn a lot about the active chemical content by the sensation on the tongue as well as the products efficacy, especially if you have tasted the plant in the wild. This product is in my opinion questionable, has different to no taste and some days no effect. I would recommend iherb have it tested to see if it can pass it's percentage claims of dopamine containing alkaloids. Im switching to a product that has a guarantee on the purity and percentage. Then I plan to have it tested. This is why herbs have such a bad rap, the companies cheat and who knows what is in them! Shame on them because this herb is incredibly useful!

After being on this supplement for a couple of weeks I do notice a gradual improvement with my sleep quality and wakefulness during the day. It also seems to help my libido

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

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.

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.
