    if its not standardized, it only contains the amount found naturally in the plant.

    "The mature seeds of the plant contain about 3.1–6.1% L-DOPA,[10]"

    Again, what are you looking to get out of Mucuna?

    If it is libido/test.. you have the perfect product.

    our dosing of the ingredient is specifically geared towards increasing HGH, which can definitely help reduce bodyfat. The 5-HTP also increases serotonin levels which helps reduce bad food cravings.

    5HTP


    ...and it helps me sleep, like melatonin

    So L DOPA in higher doses can increase GH and lose body fat?

    Correct. L-Dopa at 500mg/dosage was shown to increase GH by 1400%. This can turn into reduced body fat, quicker recovery, and better muscle gains.

    LiGHts Out will help you sleep BIG time as well.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1158029

    “Ajlouni and colleagues reported the effects of 500mg of oral L-dopa on eight normal and 8 non-obese insulin-dependent diabetic subjects. The normal subjects increased their plasma HGH from 1.5mg/ml before L-dopa, to an average 21mg/ml at 90 minutes post L-dopa”
    The full text shows that the 1400% increase happened in healthy subjects(1.5mg/ml, to 21mg/ml). The downside is that the increase didn't last for 24 hours, which would be awesome.

    So if I am wanting the sexual benefits of lasting a bit longer and refractory period shorter, which do I go with? L-dopa product or murana or both?

    Do you think at the 750 mg daily the 98% l-dopa is a safe dose ??
