Mucuna Pruriens Supplements...

Has anybody had any luck using Mucuna Pruriens to cope with PD? As I understand it doctors do not recommend their use but what are suffers supposed to do when they can't get the medical help that they need???

  1. Hi thanks for reaching out. While it is definitely important to discuss all supplements with your doctor before taking them, I can understand your curiosity. I am sending over a forum discussion about this topic, I hope it is helpful. Jill, team

    1. Sincerely many thanks. I started taking MP capsules (1100 mg ea.) x2 a day three days ago with no noticeable effects. Percent of L-Dopa level is unknown nor listed on the bottle. I really had my hopes up trying this supplement but so far there hasn't been anything positive to say. I would appreciate hearing any opinions regarding using Mucuna Pruriens supplements. The brand name on the bottle is 'Jiva Botanicals'. Again, thank you...

      1. Hi just wanted to check in and see how you have been doing since changing up your protocol? I hope it has been helpful. Kindly, Jessica, Team Member

    2. The Mucuna Pruriens supplements have no effect at all. I should try and get medical help but it's hard finding a doctor.. I have just learned that Sinemet is no longer available in North America. What now is a common and effective drug prescribed to treat PD???
