I have tried another herbal product of Paradise Herbs, and I'm all impressed with their quality. The extract is of very high quality and the effects, thus, are not just subtle, but very noticeable. However, beware: L-DOPA is not your average natural supplement to try for fun. It has some pretty pronounced effects on your brain chemistry, and, unless your health condition really requires it, I wouldn't recommend L-DOPA supps. to "healthy" individuals. Do not take this if you are prone to psychiatric disorders of the paranoia-mania-schizophrenia types. lol It will probably have positive effects for people with Parkinson's disease, however, you should cycle it on and off, otherwise, your neuro-receptors will get dull in a condition similar to drug abuse (or SSRIs abuse). I, personally, reacted badly to this L-DOPA, I took one capsule and I felt its peculiar effects quite pronounced in a few hours, it was evening. On the next day, half the day I felt incredibly spaced-out, emotionally blank and somewhat pointless. I tried it three more times, on different days - I felt the same, weird and not very pleasant. So, know your body, know your brain. Take care (:

Oh my God such an effect. I have very nervous, depressed, aggressive, with phobias, etc. father, which suffers such condition for years and years. We love him so much but sometimes it is very difficult to us, especially for my mommy and I think for him, too. I am extremely thankful for other reviewers here, because I have found Mucuna only because of them, when I was searching for something. Mucuna is like miracle not only for nervousness, but also for men stuff like prostate, etc. And finally my father after taking it only for 3 weeks yet is way better. He is calmer, he is talking with more love, not with anger as previously. He is complaining so much less. I think when he will be constantly on Mucuna, he will be normal man again. Now I am not afraid of autumn depression, as I know, that Mucuna would help.
The best mood

Makes you smile and want to hug the world. Perfect herb.
Good product but not for me - maybe beneficial for Toret or ADHD...

this is a powerful herbal extract,the dosage i found works best for me is 2 capsules,i can feel it "knocking me down" and makes me sleepy & docile but not exactly calm,i already suffer from a light chronic fatigue so i don't need any substance to make it stronger,but i do believe people with ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) or toret syndrome may find this herbal extract beneficial for them,and if not you can try Valerian or Schisandra...you are welcome to rate & read my other reviews

Good stuff. Subtle effect, might not notice much, but long term it's great for those "happy" synapses to start firing in you brain!
