Provides dopamine support to promote memory function and muscle control and help control impulsive behaviors.*
Balance D Essential is an amino acid formula that supports dopamine synthesis and provides antioxidant protection for dopaminergic neurons. This product contains an extract of the nutrient-dense bean, Mucuna cochinchinensis, as a source of L-DOPA, which is the metabolic precursor to dopamine.1 Mucuna cochinchinensis extract supports dopamine levels for improved energy, muscle control and memory function.* Balance D Essential contains N-acetyl-L-tyrosine for additional catecholamine support.* The N-acetyl-L-cysteine and selenium found in Balance D Essential both support antioxidant activity, which helps to protect dopaminergic neurons.
Balance D Essential does not contain vitamin cofactors, providing health care practitioners with more control over patient protocols. Balance D Essential is recommended for patients with moderately low dopamine levels.*
There are several mucuna pruriens benefits that have been scientifically proven through supplementation, including:
- Significant increase in sperm volume and quality on infertile test-subjects.
- Reduced levels of cortisol and oxidative damage
- Activation of androgen receptors.
- Boost in dopamine production.
- Increased testosterone levels.
- Decreased prolactin levels.
More interestingly, the studies done with isolated cells inside test-tubes have been shown that L-DOPA acts as a coactivator protein to the androgen receptors (AR) and enhances their activity in uptaking testosterone and DHT (study, study). So not only can mucuna potentially increase the levels of androgens, it may also upregulate the receptor sites to better utilize them too. As you can see, there seems to be a lot of mucuna pruriens testosterone benefits.
