    Which brand and dosing are you using?

  3. macuna


    Swansons Vitamins. com.....350mg capsules 2 to three a day,,,some studies have subjects take 5GRAMS a day

    Its cheap enough w/ swansons(13.99 for 200caps) tho the powder is light brown rather than dark brown w/ OTHER companies charging more

    My moods are better, so is libido and performance(I think a bit bigger too)...plus macuna helps cholesterol and blood sugar..Im not really taking it for lean muscle mass, but I understand it can help with that too...hmmm maybe Ill try taking more of it for a couple weeks and see what happens

    BTW, Tongkat Ali//longjack is great for sex booster

  4. what is your mucuna pruriens standardized at? The L-Dopa % is really what matters when using this herb

  5. So, should one take mucuna and L-dopa. Been looking at NOW l-dopa

    You only need Mucuna Pruriens that are standardized for L-Dopa...like this:

    What are you exactly looking for from Mucuna?

    Full spectrum bean like you pointed to is leaps and bounds better than the higher L-DOPA extract for libido and test... and has a neuro protective effect.

    if its not listed directly on the label, its most likely simply raw herb that has been dried and processed...

    ..called them, NOT standardized for L dopa...jeez Im just taking macuna..might be 25 % or 40

    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.

    ...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.

  19. wow


    THATS what I REALLY need

    Post up your research on the 1400%.. I am quite curious.

    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.

  22. 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?
  23. macuna


    ...seems to work for the sexual effect s I take 1050mg which works for that...Im gonna try more tho to see if I can get more HGH going, but will prob have to get Now L Dopa to achieve fat loss

  24. Looking at NOW Dopa mucuna. It's 15% extract...this a good source for mucuna?

  25. Is it better to dose 200mg MP 15% L-Dopa before bed or pre workout?

    I'd go with synthetic supplements Dopadex. 98% pure L Dopa from mucuna

  27. If you want an opinion ask @BigT he LOVES Inhibit P

    Actually there aren't a lot of people that don't LOVE Inhibit P

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