Excellent

Posted by Reviewer2139526 on Mar 29, 2014

I've taken a lot of antioxidant extracts. Some of them provide effects that can be measured (improvement in blood pressure, blood sugar, etc.). But this is the first product whose effects can be physically felt right away. My circulation feels much better, and my body feels warm all over for several hours after taking this. I have hope that this will provide more benefits than most other antioxidant/polyphenol products.

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.

Bowel tolerance issue

Posted by Reviewer2139526 on May 04, 2015

I am currently trying out the Pauling therapy for CVD, and I am looking for a way to take large amounts of C without bowel tolerance issues. I was hoping that this would be a solution, but for some reason I have more problems (very loose stool after just 1 or 2 grams) with this than other forms of vitamin C. So far I have been the most comfortable taking Doctor's Best PureWay-C.
