This may or may not be a good supplement but lack of information makes it impossible to compare. Indicates it is a standardized extract but unlike other Swanson standardized extracts, this one doesn't indicate what percentage of active ingredient it is standardized to. Might be .00000001 percent. Might be less potent than the far less expensive full spectrum product.

I highly recommended it. I've been using for years.

you must try this
This is the first supplement that I have ever noticed results in a few day. It makes me so productive and
I am very happy with swanson price and quality.

a great tonic
I have noticed a calming effect but I still have a high energy level. There seems to be a slight increase in libido as well. I will continue to take Mucuna.

I bought and tried these taking 3 at a time morning and night and felt no different than if I had taken nothing. I took these for 3 weeks and they just don't deliver the energy boost that other herbs do.

I didn't get much out of using this.

Within a few days of starting to take Mucuna Pruriens I felt I was more focused and better able to stay on task.

Works as advertised, the most effective libido enhancement I've used.

As you age your testosterone goes down as well as your sense of well being.Mucuna Pruriens helped to get that back.I did take it with D-Aspartic acid but the combination together is phenomenal!
All the products I have ordered from Swanson are great quality. I am happy.

If I have what might potentially be a stressful meeting later in the day, I take 3 capsules a couple of hours beforehand. This will not work more than 3 days in a row - it's effectiveness is best when used occasionally.
The result? I'm calmer, more level-headed. What would normally make my adrenaline flow is more like a walk in the park. If you deal with "dramatic" people, this is a tremendous little secret weapon.
We're visiting the in-laws this weekend?? Not a problem...

No Noticeable Benefit
I am almost finished with my third bottle of this supplement. Speaking only for myself, I found no noticeable effect, not even a placebo effect.

A good tonic for giving a sense of well-being, restful sleep and a slightly enhanced libido.

We are Amazed!!!
My wife and I are very pleased with this product. It has renewed our relationship. We are both taking it. My wife combines Mucuna Pruriens with 5-HTP which is helping her with menopausal symptoms. We have experienced an increased libido, stamina, energy, as well as, an overall sense of well being and a better mood. We also feel we are having a deeper, more refreshing sleep. I heard about this herb on a late night talk show. I am very glad I ordered it. The recommended dosage is sufficient, but allow several weeks for it to kick in!

We love it
Ordered this for my husband. His job is very stressful, and mental alertness is very important. He says it does help.I didn't want to tell him it might help our love life, and put any pressure on him. But after a month he asked me was I giving him something for that...Now he doesn't want to run out. I also am taking it and feel it is a great tonic for every day.

I started using this to improve my libido and I must say that it works very well for me. I am over 50 and have lost some of the desire I once had. This has helped give some of it back of which I am truly grateful. Be sure to take regularly for full benefit.

I have only taken this for a week, and I totally feel better. I have more energy and motivation. I would recommend it to a friend.

What a "bust"
After taking this product I felt no better and felt no advantage to using it.

Feel Better Now
I took one dose with breakfast & several hours later I felt incredible! My only advice is use to take long breaks between doses. Write down thoughts/revelations while feeling good. I love the stuff!

Noticed subtle effects of mental alertness and manliness, but not the best herb I've used for either. Diff strokes for diff folks though, since everyone's body chemisrty is different. May be worth a try considering this is the best price I've come across.

A staple on my supplement shelf
My wife and I have been taking Mucuna Pruriens after researching it out a couple years ago. We both have a more restful sleep and a noticiable sense of well being and mental alertness. We definitely notice if we miss a dose.

I started noticing the effects after two days. While taking this product, I am much sharper and more "my active self". I noticed no side effects. I am totally positive that I will reorder once the bottle is empty. The price is outstanding for a supply lasting for 100 days. Incredible product.
