DOPA Mucuna 4.6 5 13 14
One of the best supplements Ever! I decided to try the Now brand of Mucuna as the Swansons did nothing for me. I have taken 2-3 capsules in the morning on an empty stomach and the results are simply outstanding. I noticed increased libido big time, better mood, better sleep and a leaner more toned looked all within a few days, I think that the 15% L-Dopa in this product is the reason. One of the best supplements I have ever taken period. April 7, 2014
balance this stuff puts my brain chemistry into balance subtle but essential November 24, 2013
Glad I bought this product This product has done a good job assisting to raise my sense of well being. I bought a second container and will thus continue to take this product for a while longer. September 6, 2013
Brain Health L-Dopa, a known precursor to dopamine, is also believed to be vital to the brain's natural production of HGH. June 30, 2013
Didn't Notice Much Didn't notice much effect of this product other than giving me a slight boost of energy 15 minutes after taking it, however, to be fair, I've only been taking it for a month without taking it on the weekends- as with most my supplements I usually take a short break. I'm hoping L-Glutamine will have a better effect when I order it soon from Swanson. Heard so much good things about that :) June 11, 2013
This seems to be quite effective for a couple of things I think I'm not allowed to mention. Better pricing than most other brands. June 6, 2013
Warm feelings Those wonderful brain chemicals that make us feel good are supported by this product. May 14, 2013
great for some, not for me Seems too stimulating for me, which proves it is effective, but friends have benefitted for mood. April 4, 2013
I feel a bit mentally delayed/dopey when I take this. Maybe an increase in dopamine is not a good thing for all people. I guess that also means the product works though. I have tried taking it several times with the same result. It's just not for me, but if you need what this product provides, it seems to work. December 23, 2012
Love This Product! I love this product. It is very effective. I bought my first bottle from Herbal Healer Academy, but this product is just as good at a lower price. I will definitely keep using it and would recommend it to others. November 9, 2012
Love this product! I absolutely love the dopa macuna. I've been taking it for about 4 months, and in the first month I didn't notice much but I wasn't exercising at all. The moment I started to exercise and got my blood flowing the DOPA made me feel a lot happier and better about my life in general. July 23, 2012
Great product I wanted to try the L-Dopa product since I saw the characteristics long ago. The results are subtle and growing on you. It has to be taken on a consistent base for a couple of days to start seeing the results, but when it does, it's great. Great value for its price November 2, 2011
This is a highly valued herb to me I think it is a great product. I feel better taking it. December 13, 2010
