Protocol for Life Balance Mucuna extract supports the nervous system. Mucuna is a legume widely used in traditional Ayurvedic herbalism. Mucuna is known to naturally possess the direct dopamine precursor, L-Dopa. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that helps to maintain normal brain and nervous system function and promotes a positive mood. Unlike dopamine, L-Dopa can penetrate the blood-brain barrier and can be used by the brain to produce dopamine. This product is standardized to a minimum of 15% L-Dopa. Recommended Use: Take 2 capsules with a meal, or as directed by a healthcare professional. Best when taken early in the day.
