Mucuna Pruriens 99% Levodopa questions

  1. Mucuna Pruriens 99% Levodopa questions


    The bottle says, Serving size: 100 mg (1ml scoop 1/5 full) 300 servings per container.

    amount per serving
    Mucuna Pruriens extract 99% Levodopa, 100 mg

    Suggested use: As a dietary supplement use 100 mg (1ml scoop 1/5 full) on empty stomach before bed or exercise or as otherwise directed by your healthcare professional.

    Do not exceed 500mg L Dopa daily

    So...if I take 1/2 a ml scoop before working out and a another 1/2 of a 1ml scoop before bed I'm dosing this at 500 mg L Dopa a day, right?

    Is this the right dose for that high of a percentage of L Dopa?


  2. Sounds like a BAC product.

    The dosage just sounded so very much "BAC".

    Now, what type of car?

    Can you tell I caught some cage fighting last night on TV with my ring announcer text voice?

    The L-Dopa content is 98 to 99% per 1/5 of a 1ml scoop from what I'm guessing. I'm a little confused which is the reason for this thread.

    The L-Dopa content for a dose of Powerfull could be 15 to 25% L-Dopa per serving. This seems to be the normal range for most Mucuna products. I just got such a sweet deal on the higher percentage, I had to go for it. Oh yea, you can get that same sweet deal too!

    Does anyone have any ideas or are we going to have to battle it out in the Octagon!!!!!! Yep, picked up some tribulus and what they call sextiva. Test must be kicking in, arggghh!

    That is the second time someone has commented on my avatar today. Thank you, had to have it. Go ahead, waste time watching where the little stick people go to and come out from. I did.

    Oh, and Beau... how about that new Bugatti that does like 200 something? You're Welcome...

    You'll have ro sneak up on BAC's high potency trib. It tastes really bad. Sextiva - I thought that was mostly targeted for females???

    Just took the trib. It's the lower percentage stuff, so not so bad. I take the Trib because it has saponins in it which inhibit the break down of the Mucuna pruriens. Sextiva is Nettle root, Avena sativa and Saw palmetto. I don't think I have to go into the benefits of those. Ya'll probably know by now.

  12. What is the real benefit of Mucuna Pruriens, what are you supplementing with it for? Where did you read that the Saponins in Tribulus inhibit breakdown of Mucuna Pruriens

  13. I don't have the biochem knowledge behind it, but it contains L-Dopa which converts to dopamine, which facilitates the release of growth hormone. I forget which supplement has both Trib and Mucuna in it. Someone will probably chime in with that info but the writeup discussed trib containing a saponin which inhibits the breakdown of levodopa. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Right.

    There is a product called TestJuice1000 by ASN - Advanced Strength Nutrition (not a recommendation of any type, as it is not clear at what levels the actives were extracted).
    Another product is GHT Stack by SciFit. And so on.

    I am not aware of this.

    Mainly as a dopamine precursor and for L-Dopa (L-Dihydroxyphenylalanine)-induced GH secretion. Dopamine is a potent GH and testosterone booster and prolactin inhibitor. Mucuna pruriens also boosts libido, reduces blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol, amongst others.

  16. I'll save you the pain of reading all of this. Go down to "Detailed description of specific embodimennts" I think this is where I first saw something about the combination of Trib with Mucuna. I found more at AM somewhere. Maybe I can dig it up. Powerfull has "Pure Sap", maybe that's what I found?

    PureSap is "Safed Musli", I believe. PureDopa (also in PowerFULL) is Dolichos Pruriens L. This is also a synonym for Mucuna Pruriens.

  18. The MP in PowerFULL is standardized for 50% LevaDopa.

  19. what a good dose of 98% Mucuna Pruriens?

  20. Well...I'm thinking the dose for the 98% Mucuna should be half of what the Powerfull dose is. Yea, Safed Musli (Pure Sap). I can't find that anywhere. I know I can get it from India but I don't really feel like bothering with it right now. I'm talking bulk product. My wife is getting tired of seeing Kilos of herbs sitiing in the kitchen. Ha, I just reread that. Pretty funny.


    Well woman, How do you think you can roll in such a pimp whip? Daddy is on the job, makin paper. I better stop, somebody may take me serious.

    If you end up sourcing Safed Musli as bulk, it might help to use the purity/level of extraction as an important yardstick. PowerFULL has a potent extract at an effective dose. Another candidate is IGF-2.

  22. I would go for at least 50% on the Safed Musli when I do it.

    I have not seen a higher level of extraction yet!

    70%? Sounds explosive! I have heard good things about Shatavari.

    Isn't Shatavari for women? Can someone post some Safed Musli articles, any correlation with increase testosterone?

  27. where can i get bulk mucuna pruriens?

  28. I am looking for a capped 200 mg mucuna 50% or 95-99% l-dopa supp to stack with my 200:1 or 100:1 tongkat to kill prolactin....

    when custom gets mucuna i am going to get a cap with 200 nettle, 100 lj100, 100 mucuna and 100 p-serine

  29. Just a heads-up: L-Dopa is a prescription drug, with some serious side effects if taken longterm. If you hang around the imminst forums (one of the best brain science forums), they are universally down on L-Dopa as a longterm supplement because of cytotoxicity. The medical profession is now reluctant to prescribe levodopa, and it has been superseded by dopamine agonists with better safety profiles.

    Powerfull was at least claimed to have a decarboxylase inhibitor, which makes it more similar to a combined carbidopa/levodopa supplement (e.g., Sinemet). This means that you can't equate the amount of levodopa between the two products. As far as I know, no doctor these days would prescribe straight levodopa without a decarboxylase inhibitor. (I'm not even sure if straight levodopa is available as a prescription in the U.S.)

    The wikipedia page on levodopa is a decent introduction:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levodopa

    Anyway, keep in mind that this is normally a prescription drug, with some serious cons to go with questionable pros. The fact that it is being marketed as a "legal herbal" doesn't change that. It's kind of weird to me that it is sold OTC in such pure form. I don't think that any responsible expert would claim that exogenous levodopa is a health supplement for an otherwise healthy individual. (I am not an expert, by any means.)

    Here's a representative warning on even the "safe" kind of levodopa combined with carbidopa:

    Various psychiatric disturbances may occur during levodopa-carbidopa therapy. Such disturbances include memory loss, anxiety, nervousness, agitation, restlessness, confusion, inability to sleep, nightmares, daytime tiredness, mental depression or euphoria.
    http://www.medicinenet.com/levodopa-...pa/article.htm

    If you really want a dopamine agonist (and make sure you know why you want this, not just for some questionable transient HGH surge; the book "The Edge Effect" is a great introduction), you might look into deprenyl or bromocriptine. These are prescription drugs, but are easily available overseas, or even for lab rat purposes. If you want the prosexual effects, look into cabergoline -- but make sure you look into the health risks of cabergoline, which are substantial with longterm use.

    arent those effects associated with the actual pure form of pharmaceutical grade and not the herbal extract...?
