They are (mucuna pruriens), from what I've heard on hubermanlab podcast, 100% made of L-Dopa or dopamine. I Don't rememberI've tried Now Foods Mucuna Pruriens in the past, but felt nothing. It says on the label 15% L-Dopa. Perhaps the percentage of L-Dopa has something to do with the effects of this.
Does the product you bought show a percentage of L-Dopa ?
Can it effect sleep. So if I took it early morning would it effect sleep later in the dayI can tell you not all Mucuna is equally good. NOW brand sucks. The only brand that works is OJIO from IHerb. 15% l-dopa. People need to read studies to understand dosage matters. You need about 5 grams a day. Work your way up. Cycle it 4 days on, 2 days off. All other generic brands suck. Especially ones that don’t state l-dopa contents. Also the super concentrate ones with like 90% l-dopa aren’t good either. They miss all the other good parts in mucuna which work synergistically.
