Mucuna pruriens is a tropical bean containing large amounts of levodopa and is the most important natural remedy for Parkinson’s disease. Famous neurologists have patented methods of extraction for its advantages over the synthetic forms, Sinemet and Madopar. This natural levodopa is less toxic and has a faster and more lasting effect and can delay the need for pharmaceuticals and combination therapies. Currently, there are many patients with Parkinson’s disease who take Mucuna and spontaneously reduce the dose of conventional drugs and do so behind their doctors’ backs. Mucuna should always be taken under medical supervision.
