  1. Mucuna Pruiens

    Thanks Tamara! Yes, I also take the NOW 15% So you are now taking 480-600 mg for 4-5 capsules, aren't you? is it a prescribed dosage by pharmacist or doctor? Besides, have you (or anyone) tried fava beans as well??

    Dear Dr. Thanks so much for your fruitful info. In fact, I'm now taking the supplement with the following description regarding "Supplement facts": Amount per serving Velvet Bean Extract (Mucuna pruiens) (seed) (min 15% L-DOPA, naturally occurring): 800mg L-DOPA: 120mg I'm now taking 2 capsules per day, so am I taking 240mg in total per day? Thanks again for your advice!! Best,

    Hi all, I was just newly diagnosed of YOPD early this year. It's really really shock to me. I started to see a neurologist and was prescribed of Azilect (1mg). Seems better after taking medication. But still feeling soreness over left shank and mild hand tremor over left hand at times. Then I tried to take Mucuna Pruiens (a kind of health supplement), I felt a bit better. Does anyone know the effect of taking it in early stage? Besides, I'm not sure what's the dosage I should take. Thanks thousands for your advice!!
