L-Dopa is the precursor of several neurotransmitters including dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline) and adrenaline. It is also known under the names Levadopa and Mucuna Pruriens. It is naturally found in the human body and our body produces small amounts of L-Dopa by converting the amino acid tyrosine.
L-Dopa improves mood, concentration and focus. In addition, it is used to combat depression and anxiety. Dopamine itself can not pass through the blood-brain barrier and must be synthesized in the brain. L-Dopa, however, can penetrate this barrier and provide increased levels of this pleasure-inducing hormone by enzyme aromatic-amino acid decarboxylase.
This substance is also very effective in stimulating the overall brain function. It is now known that dopamine is involved in the regulation of mood, attention and movement. Many users of L-Dopa supplements report improvements in mood and mental acuity when taking this supplement.

Many users also experience a higher level of energy and motivation that is attributed to the increase in norepinephrine and adrenalin activity.
This supplement is also known as a powerful anti-oxidant. L-Dopa helps to remove toxins from the body, especially from our brains.
