L-dopa (levodopa) is a precursor to dopamine, nor epinephrine (noradrenaline) and epinephrine (adrenaline). Levodopa is the primary chemical in the ayurvedic medicinal plant, mucuna pruriens, which is also known as the Velvet Bean. Research shows that L-dopa can increase HGH in humans. L-dopa is reportedly given to those with Parkinson’s disease as a method of increasing dopamine levels. L-dopa is considered useful because it readily crosses the blood-brain barrier, whereas dopamine does not. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that is correlated to pleasure, motivation, movement, appetite, sex drive and social interaction. It is associated with the reward center of the brain and is one of the chemicals released during orgasm and other pleasurable activities. Dopamine is also released as a result of the intake of caffeine and other stronger stimulants. L-dopa’s effects can vary widely between individuals with some users having intense experiences and others reacting very mildly. Levodopa users have reported side effects that include but are not limited to excitability, nervousness, uncontrolled laughter, euphoria, shakes, insomnia, narcolepsy, vivid dreams, disorientation and tolerance. Dosage and individual brain chemistry can be a factor in these results. This is a 99% pure extract of L-dopa from mucuna pruriens. Also offering a 25% alkaloidal extract of mucuna pruriens.
