Many thanks, Nas! Hopefully, others will follow suit.
Best,

I wonder if I take an L-Dopa supplement, will that also increase Norepinephrine and Epinephrine levels, since the former are made from dopamine?

direct supplement with L-DOPA is bad. one of its metabolite in blood shuts down tyrosine transport through BBB, and causing paradoxically low dopamine level in CNS over longer terms.

That's why Parkinson patients have to increasing their L-DOPA dosage very quickly and the whole thing stops working after 1 year or two.

Is it direct if I take Mucuna Pruriens 20% L-Dopa?

I take levodopa 52mg and I think it increases as well as those are metabolites of dopamine as well as dopamine is of levodopa.
