    NOW has amazing quality control, so it is legit.

    You could get something like EndoSurge which has the mucuna and divan in it

    I was gonna suggest Endosurge as well - if you're looking for a good Mucuna product, Endosurge is well dosed and quite affordable.

    Now Foods is one of the best commodity brands out there, along with Jarrow. Now is just priced cheaper.

    Good choice man. I'd buy endosurge for the enhanced sleep and overall feeling better. The extra stinging nettle is just a bonus! And that stuff justifies the price in the bottle!
    Love it.

    I've ordered Now food Dupa Mucuna, but couldn't resist and bought 2 EndoSurge fron your site. Can't beat the price plus the free shipping. You guys should mention your products more around here.

    I'm going to stack them for the extra l-dupa.

    Doing our best to bring 'em up when the opportunity arises. You can certainly help spread the word though, when Endosurge sends your libido through the roofs and dreams get crazy!

    The two don't really interact, as far as I'm aware. Operate via rather different mechanisms. So a normal dose for both substances should be fine.

    Ahhh, thanks for the clarification. 200+mg of active L-Dopa and you should be more than set for DAA.

    I was just wondering what you were taking it for? I have this supplement but I was using it in the hope of harnessing my creativity in jamming sessions and writing; I got the idea after reading Oliver Sacks' book The Man who Mistook his Wife for A Hat. L-dopa was administered to patients with "sleepy sickness" which helped them to "awake." L-dopa also is related to tics in Tourette's Syndrome. Sacks discusses a patient with Tourettes, and his Tics allowed him to be very creative when playing the drums.

    Now L-Dopa is decent, but it only 15% concentrate. I buy a 40% concentrate at about the same price from Barlowe's.

    Not sure which you're referring to, but if you're looking for Endosurge, the link to our website is in my signature below.

    This is the first time I've taken it. It is suposed to increase test levels, increase fertility, reduce prolactin. Some say reduce body fat but haven't read much feed back on that. It would be helpful when taking DAA, according to Dr Dana, taken 5 on, 2 off to counter prolactin from DAA.

    Again this is first time I'm taking it so my direct knowledge is limited to what I've read. I'm taking it for the prolactin benefit. increase test would be a plus.

    I got my EndoSurge today. that was pretty fast shipping, thanks BPS! I'll be taking EndoSurge and Now Dopa Mucuna for the extra Mucuna.

    on a different note, I just dropped $494 on a stray cat with a broken leg. She will need more doctor visits over the next two months as she heals, so it will be safe to say I will be out of the supplements buying for a while. Good thing I have Stocked up on my new couple of months supplies

    Good for you, taking in the cat. Pets can be such a blessing and simultaneously a huge financial burden. Hope it heals up quick. And, of course, thanks for your order!
