Mucuna is a wonderful plant. It is the only known natural source of such high levels of L-Dopa, and when I tried it I was very surprised at the efficacy.
I had received a 100g bag I bought from my regular kratom vendor. It was standardized to 25% L-Dopa. I took a little at first, and for the past 10 days I have been taking about 1.5 tsp per day, half in morning and 1 tsp at night. The feeling is not just placebo. I have felt more balanced, calmer, and focused. My energy level has been the same, but my mind is ready to go. NOT racing, but focused.
I did not even know I had low dopamine, I usually feel great. I am always positive, and have a great life, enjoy everything...so it surprised me it helped so much. But it also contains HTP and many other compounds.
It appears to synergize with kratom fantastically. I heard that kratom is a decarboxylase inhibitor, which increases the efficacy. I am a regular user of kratom for 6 years, and cannabis for 23 years. I know my body well, and this herb has fantastic potential.
