Categories: ,


L-DOPA is an amino acid (also known as levodopa) and precursor of dopamine, but it plays a role in epinephrine and norepinephrine as well. You may recognize the name as it’s also a popular treatment for Parkinson’s Disease. L-DOPA is naturally produced in animals and plants from the amino acid, L-tyrosine.

Unlike dopamine, L-DOPA has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. This is how it increases dopamine in the brain. The blood-brain barrier acts as a filter, allowing some substances, while keeping others out. Once L-DOPA passes the barrier, it’s taken up by dopaminergic neurons that convert it to dopamine and increase these neurons levels of dopamine and storage.

High levels of L-DOPA can also be found in mucuna pruriens. Mucuna pruriens is referred to as a natural herbal supplement originating from ancient Indian medical practices although it’s technically beans that grows in the tropics. As adaptogen can be used to reduce stress and anxiety, improve focus, boost libido and improve mood. These benefits come from the L-DOPA found within this “dopa bean”.

What to know

  • Some studies looking at patients with Parkinson’s Disease showed that L-DOPA was able to prevent the decrease in testosterone levels.  This is thought to be due to dopamine’s ability to inhibit prolactin (a hormone responsible for lowering the levels of luteinizing hormone and testosterone). Mucuna pruriens (a natural source of L-DOPA as mentioned above) was shown to increase testosterone levels in infertile men from ages 25 to 40.  Treatment with mucuna pruriens significantly improved dopamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline as well.
    As L-DOPA (levodopa) is the main treatment for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease,  and there are a lot of of studies on subjects with this disease. When it comes to mental alertness L-DOPA has the ability to induce higher levels of alertness when compared to other treatments.
    Who doesn’t need a good bit of motivation every now and then? Believe it or not, some studies have shown that consuming L-DOPA can actually improve your motivation. How was this measured? Healthy subjects in an MRI study showed increased brain activation related to punishment processing.
    Sure, L-DOPA can improve alertness and motivation, but can it reduce your stress levels? One study says yes. When researching mucuna pruriens and its effect on stress levels, it seemed to reduce stress and cortisol levels while increasing the quality of semen in infertile men Whether you’re training hard or working hard at the office, the results from supplementing with L-DOPA can create a noticeable difference in your everyday life.
