Advice & Tips: My Mucuna is sourced from the Centre for Natural Healing in Ashland, OR. After nearly 1 year of use (typically 1 tsp of powdered extract daily) I cannot say there has been any effect on my PD symptoms. I have, however, had a significant elevation of my free testosterone (to 52 pg/mL - the normal range is 8-20) which has been great for my tennis, kickbxing and strength training!
