    L-dopa and Prolactin


    How much l-dopa per day should be administered to lower prolactin levels?

    what I have is 800 mg pills standardized to min 15% l-dopa.

    Possibly because it is one of the sure-fire ways of having people take it on an empty stomach.

    I'm not sure what you are saying. HghPRO has an extract of Mucuna that is 99% L-Dopa. Was that what you meant?

    It would definitely help keep prolactin in check and could be combined with other products that also do so.

    any l-dopa product should always be taken on empty stomach. hghpro will work well at combating prolactin issues-add some p5p to kick it in the ass.

    Empty, as in no food eaten for at least 2 hours, and don't eat for at least an hour after (for sleep effects, don't eat after at all, just hit the sack).

    damn -- I'm hardly ever that empty. so food negatively affects its absorption?

    insulin-so stay away from carbs. eating a piece of meat within an hour of taking wouldn't be that bad, imo.

    yup-easy once posted a article that showed p5p stopped a nursing mother from lactating within a week-now that is an anti-prolactin, lol.

    I keep hearing ppl rave about p5p, which I believe is a co-enzyme of B6... time to do a little research

    It's not really an absorption issue. It has more to do with the type of physiological response that is illicited!

    EDIT: Like TheBigT mentioned above...sorry for the repeat.

    So basically take it away from Carbs? Can the absorption be increased with just upping the dosage?

    Take 2 of those pills a day. Also if you add in P-5-P at 200mg a day it would help a lot. I recommend using both if using a product that increases Prolactin.

    Is this for a cycle? If so, make sure you have Cabergoline on hand. You never know, things happen lol

    Prolactin is not so much the issue though I want to include it in the benefits. Was looking at more of the Test boosting effects of high dosages of Mucuna. It will be for PCT, but not taking anything that strong where prolactin should be a serious issue.

    good advice. the p5p and l-dopa should take care of things, and caber should be used with caution, imo. that being said, if i ever get leaky nips i would do everything possible to stop it!!!

    Gotcha

    Then L-Dopa by itself is fine. Good luck with you PCT!

    Also, have you tried DAA yet? I recently used it for the end of my PCT and I was extremely impressed. If you want a product thats gonna raise test and do a good job of it, DAA is what I recommend for the end of your PCT.

    Yea Caber should only be used when ABSOLUTELY neccesary. I hate when people get told to use it during their cycle as an everyday thing.

    Damn thats a lot of stuff. I would save most of that for after PCT. Why are you running Superdrol for only one week? Three is what I recommend. I would also recommend you drop all that and run SD on its own. Its strong enough to the point where Stacking would just makes the side effects worse lol.

    You don't need all those for PCT either. Just run the Nolva with Forslean and P-5-P. Make sure you run Nolva for at least 6 weeks. Don't fall for the 4 week PCT. 6 weeks is enough to ensure a nice recovery (in my experience with bloodwork done).

    And you are going to run Tren, which means use P-5-P and L-Dopa on cycle and have Cabergoline on hand just incase you lactate. (I know it freaks me out too lol)

    I just have a week left over of the SD and the 1T/4AD trans, figured just take it to kick start cycle. This is PP's 1T/Tren, don't know if you were thinking it was real Tren. I never had prolactin issues before, so dont think Im gonna invest in Caber. I may cancel the Testalenis. The PCT will be 6 weeks. Starting Erase around week 2 or 3, Nolva right off the bat standard protocol, though I am running that for only 4 weeks not the six.

    The PH "Tren" aka Dienelone (purely a guess that thats the compound in PP's 1t) has the ability to raise Prolactin. While studies have shown it only effects Progesterone at 17. Prolactin can still be an issue. Better safe then sorry is what I say because if by chance it does happen to you, you will be ready.

    Also, the most important part of your PCT is the SERM. I still recommend you run Nolvadex for a full 6 weeks. It will make all the difference in the world. I guarentee it. If you have ever gotten bloodwork done before and after a cycle you know what I mean. (comparing a 4 week to a 6 week)

    Just look for a high yield extract, 15% is low, although it's what I used recently - went through about 4 bottles of NOW Foods L-Dopa.

    It can be found in many sites in bulk as well

    These are just so unreasonably expensive if the OP is looking for simple L-Dopa, not a blend. As I said before, you can even find this in bulk, and cap it yourself.
