PowerFULL A deep look at Dolichos Pruriens ingredient
by Kenton Engel
PureDOPA is a scientifically-balanced matrix containing a very particular extract of Dolichos Pruriens L., an L-DOPA containing compound that, combined with other constituents, vastly outperforms synthetic L-DOPA with 110% higher peak concentrations, 165% longer peak concentrations, and an onset time around 50% shorter . L-DOPA’s action as it pertains to the release of endogenous growth hormone, then, is the transient increase in the peptide responsible for Growth Hormone release – GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone). Like L-DOPA, Mucuna Prurien’s postulated manner of increasing the activity of the Dopaminergic-Pituitary-GH release axis is through the potentiation of the cortico-basal ganglion complex, including the most prominent areas of Dopamine production and distribution (Substantia nigra, primarily). And like synthetic preparations of L-DOPA, research has reflected that the Substantia Nigra (the part of mid-brain containing the majority of Dopamine-producing ions) need not be in a degraded state to illicit to prominent GH induction, but rather, effects of oral L-DOPA administration have been noted in healthy, normal patients [3, 4, 15]. In fact, a transient endogenous growth hormone of 500% was in fact seen in a particular work , while an average increase of 221% in non-pathological state [i.e., healthy] participants was seen in another . As stated, research has shown that this increase is most likely occurring by way of LD-induced hypothalamtic GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone) production [2, 4].
As has been state, it should be readily noted that the increases of plasma GHRH and GH [1,2,3,4] have been noted as a result of synthetic L-DOPA administration. However, Dolichos P.L., not only contains natural sources of L-DOPA, with demonstrated efficacy at raising L-DOPA (with its subsequent effect on GHRH and GH) of twice to three times that of synthetic L-DOPA [1, 6, 7], but also most likely contains independent L-DOPA enhancing adjuvents, or possibly inherent decarboxylase inhibitors [6. 7. 8]. The latter scenario is likely as Dopamine and its metabolites have not been found in the nigrostriatal tract after Mucuna administration , as well as a lack of dyskensia in Parkinson’s patients  and lack of side-effects in normal patients . This data is indicative of a lack of Dopaminergic transmission in peripheral tissues.
The final point of concern relative to L-DOPA, and therefore Dolichos P.L., is long-term safety and tolerability concerns associated with synthetic L-DOPA administration. Synthetic L-DOPA has been noted to have many adverse side-effects including hypertension, dyskenisia (uncontrollable movement), dizziness, nausea, and so on. However, Dolichos has not shown these same side-effects in Parkinson’s patients , and L-DOPA administration has not displayed these same side-effects in healthy, normal subjects [2, 3].
Along with the above side-effects, synthetic L-DOPA has been shown to have damaging effects to dopamine ions in the region of the brain most responsible for dopamine transmission (the substantia nigra). This can lead to an aggregate decrease in endogenous dopamine production; however, DLP has displayed neuro-restorative effects in the relevant data, increasing levels of serotonin, dopamine, levadopa, and norepinephrine . This is most likely due to a more efficient transmission of dopamine, and Mucuna containing NADH and COQ-10, both powerfull neurorestorative compounds [9. 10].
Finally, recent studies have also found that Mucuna pruriens Linn. Produced a significant and sustained increase in sexual activity in normal male rats; additionally, in infertile men, it was able to increase Luteinzing Hormone (LH) levels close to 23-41% while also increasing total testosterone by approximately 27-39% ; it was also able to decrease prolactin levels by 11-32%.  The authors of the studies believe that these beneficial effects may be, at least in part, due to the decrease in prolactin levels and a general decrease in cortisol and stress. Specifically, they believe that the elevated cortisol levels seen with stress can, over an extended period of time, lead to a decrease in testosterone production, while at the same time; elevated prolactin in men may also decrease signaling from the brain to produce testosterone as well. The plant Mucuna pruriens appears to counteract these detrimental changes. This cortisol-attenuating capacity, coupled with L-DOPA mediated hypersexuality , may also explain why MP is regarded, anecdotally, as having a marked virility-inducing capacity.

Basically, it seems that Engel is saying that PureDOPA is a solid product. The natural form of L-DOPA found in the Dolichos Pruriens L. extract (Mucuna Pruriens L.) seems to be more effective and have less overall side effects than synthetic L-DOPA. For example, he says that the extract appears to be two to three times as effective at raising L-DOPA and GHRH / GH levels as synthetic L-DOPA. In addition, Engel says that recent studies have shown it increases sexual activity in rats, as well as raises testosterone and LH levels in infertile men. Simply put, science supports that the ingredient will up your GHRH / GH output as well as testosterone levels.

Good post above, Hard to know what to add ...
Aside from PureDOPA being a superior product then synthetic L-Dopa, not only in giving a much better result at a lower dose, which is impressive to say the least, but ...
What concerns me most is while synthetic L-Dopa has side effects, PureDOPA doesn't seem to, and in some cases seems to have the opposite effect, like in the case of the neuro-degradative effect of synthetic L-Dopa can have and the neuro-restorative effect of PureDOPA.
While these side effects are mostly in people who are already sick, to me it speaks volumes on the long term potential of PureDOPA and by relation, PowerFULL.
This gives HUGE potential to the long term use of PureDOPA without side effects and also what looks to be some possible and impressive medical applications of it. Huge props to USP for that!
Hats off to J and USP for actually rewarding people for educating themselves. Just goes to give me more faith in your products and to want to educate myself more on these reports. USP Labs fan for life!

In a nutshell he is basically stating that not only is PowerFULL more safe than synthetic L-Dopa but it is also more efficient in crossing the membrane needed to LDopa to function making it far superior in efficacy for growth hormone production, while being less damaging to the tissue. Healthwise is more beneficial in all aspects and also has the ability to restore beneficial hormone levels allowing for increased testosterone while at the same time lowering cortisol and prolactin levels. This can limit stress induced damage to muscle tissue, libido and the hormonal axis. It also has other homeopathic medicinal purposes such as limiting the shaking in Parkinsons patients.
I could go on to list the thousand of health and even aesthetic benefits of having naturally higher growth hormone and testosterone levels but won't go to far in into it but consider this. The increase in LH brings up testosterone levels naturally with out creating an imbalance in the testosterone/estrogen axiz this mean it could be used as part of a PCT without having to worry about estrogen rebound. Higher levels of growth hormone rejuvinate the skin and help return elasticity to it. Both growth hormone and testosterone have anabolic and lypolitic properties as most of you know. So it helps while trying to gain lean muscle mass, and lose fat, improving overall body composition.
In one sentence though, I think he said. PowerFULL is the an extremely effective natural performance supplement with surprising overall health benefits and no known negative side. Yeah I think that is what he said...

One more thing I would like to know is that if it's OK to take PowerFull and HCHX at the same time.
These two require the same intake timing, before meals, except PowerFull's before bed.
I wonder if HCHX's ingredients affect PoerFull's or viceversa.
Thanks in advance

however, some clarification: it is a misnomer to specify that PowerFULL is required to be taken before meals. in fact, you want to avoid carb consumption 1hr prior to and 1hr following consumption. the lone exception would be, the first dose 30min prior to breakfast (following the newly updated dosing schematic).
I take my PowerFULL 2x daily - 3 caps, 30min preWO; and 3 caps, 30min before bed, both on empty stomach. personally, I am not a fan of the new directions, and since I work out in the mornings there is no need to have 1 cap before breakfast.
