Are you familiar with dopamine? It is a neurotransmitter that has a major impact on your brain by serving as a chemical messenger. Dopamine can help regulate emotional responses‚ movement‚ and internal reward and pleasure centers. Above all‚ it promotes good cognitive functioning and helps you perform the many mental tasks you need to accomplish on a daily basis. Unfortunately‚ today's stressful lifestyles‚ toxic environments‚ and unbalanced diet can negatively impact your body's ability to synthesize the neurotransmitters your brain needs in order to work optimally.

DopaPlus by Pure Encapsulations may stimulate natural dopamine production with the precursors L-DOPA and L-tyrosine. L-tyrosine is an amino acid‚ while L-DOPA comes from a tropical legume called Mucuna pruriens (also known as velvet bean). This supplement also contains cofactors like Metafolin® L-5-MTHF (which may cross the blood-brain barrier more easily than other forms of folate) and vitamin B6‚ which work in synergy to further support natural dopamine production.

Since DopaPlus also provides folate and zinc‚ it may support optimal serum levels that promote a positive mood. Finally‚ it contains herbal extracts like grape seed‚ green tea‚ and rhiodiola rosea; these work to help you maintain steady dopamine levels‚ which may allow you to avoid swings in concentration or energy. Some of these herbs also contain polyphenols that can protect the health and functioning of neurons. Meanwhile‚ proanthocyandins may boost the activity of theta brain waves‚ thereby promoting mental sharpness.

Take three to six vegetarian capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 180-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' DopaPlus should last for about one to two months.

Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

    • Nausea and not for me.

      from South Florida on 9/19/2021
      Rec’d 4 days ago. Started that aft with one dose of 3 caps, then upon more reading more I lowered to 2 caps each AM/PM on day 2. By lunchtime, I felt slightly dizzy/woosey. Really set in after second dose that aft. Upset stomach and that awful sensation of needing to stay near the bathroom! Next day (day 3) down to 1am and 1pm. Same awful feelings during the day. On a whim, I took 2 upon waking this morning (day 4) (thinking very empty tummy); nearly fell over within one hr from dizziness. Quick trip to the bathroom and got rid of it all, felt normal for first time Since starting. No more for me. I am 5’5” and weigh 105. Maybe just being a good weight for my height, my system can’t handle the ingredients. Now off to find another dopamine helper for Restless Leg Syndrome.

      Pros

      Nausea too strong for my size/weight

      Cons

      Cleared out my “lower track” with great dizzy and upset symptoms to go with it.

      from TAVERNIER FL on 5/31/2020
      I am on my second bottle of this product and highly recommend it. The first day I took three capsules which was, for me, too much. Initially, I opted to take one capsule every morning for about a month. I noticed a definite feeling of clarity and higher spirits throughout the day. I am a matcha drinker versus coffee (few times per week), and the positive boost from the caffeine in the matcha and the DopaPlus provided for a total transformation to positivity on a daily basis. After about a month to two months, I started taking an additional capsule in the evenings to see what the effect would be. I have suffered long bouts of insomnia and negative vivid dreams throughout my lifetime. I was amazed with the results. My dreams are more positive and "normal" with less traumatic themes. I track my sleep with Fitibit, and I noticed a huge difference in the readings. I also find when I am having a darker day due to menopause or just feeling down, I will take an additional capsule for a day or two to compensate. It seems to help. I am a big believer in this brand. I was introduced to this brand by our local vet here in the FL Keys who prescribed melatonin for one of our terriers. I have switched to Pure Encapsulations for almost all of my supplements.

      Pros

      improves mood, helps with clarity, provides more restful sleep, takes effect quickly

      Cons

      Even though the directions said to take 3 pills 2 times a day, that seemed like too much. I began with 1 pill twice a day. Not enough. I'm up to 3 pills a day. Waiting to see if that makes a difference.

      Pros

      Cons

      The pill itself is so big!

      I got Dopa Plus by Pure Encapsulations for my mom who is suffering from Dementia, and wow what a difference it made in her! I also then got it for myself and have noticed a definite difference in brain function - I'm more alert and have significantly less brain fog. I take two in the morning only.

      Pros

      Makes a big difference.

      Cons

      None.

      I'm using Dopa Plus by Pure Encapsulations to normalize neurotransmitter levels analyzed from specific lab results. I am using three Pure Encapsulations product, this being one of them. I am amazed and grateful for the benefits received from DopaPlus.

      Pros

      If it works for you... it works very very well for you!

      So my case is a bit unusual. We are guessing at this point, based on some tests, that the med I take for an esophagus ailment that helps the esophagus, depletes dopamine levels starting with the breakdown or not making enough epinephrine. Having low epinephrine I'm tired, low energy, have depression, and low metabolism. The hard part is how to increase the energy without interrupting the med for my esophagus. So far - DopaPlus by Pure Encapsulations is working well. Subtle increase in energy without being jittery. Time will tell, I've only been on it a few days.

      Pros

      Doesn't make me jittery... seems to be working.

      Cons

      Taking it 3 times a day between meals.

      I take 2 of these each morning when I wake up to get me going for the day. I have a lot of gut issues going on so my neurotransmitters are low due to my gut issues. Taking extra dopamine helps me get moving for the day and feel a sense of wellbeing.

      Pros

      works right away

      Cons

      the pills are a bit big and would like them to be smaller.
