BalanceD is an amino acid formula that contains an extract of the nutrient dense bean, Vicia faba, as a source of 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanie (L-DOPA). NeuroScience's Vicia faba is standardized to contain 50% L-DOPA, the metabolic precursor to dopamine. N-acetyl-tyrosine is included for additional support to the catecholamine system.
Adding Vicia faba or Fava beans to a person’s diet has been well studied for its ability to support dopamine. The Vicia faba extract used by NeuroScience, Inc. has been rigorously tested and brings you all the L-DOPA benefits of Vicia faba, and is completely free from vicine and convicine. These agents are responsible for the occurrence of Favism in genetically predisposed people, and until now has limited more widespread use of Vicia faba. This certified high purity Vicia faba extract is available exclusively from NeuroScience, Inc.
