Fava Bean Sprouts L-Dopa
I live in Texas so I wonâ€™t be able to grow fava beans until it gets cold. But if I bought the dried beans and cooked Â them, can I still get some benefits as far as symptom relief?
Dried beans soaked and cooked up do not give much L-dopa. But, if you buy organic, sproutable fava beans and soak them in filtered water for 24 hr…then sprout them 3 days according to the instructions on the downloadable booklet on Robert’s site….they have about 2mg L-dopa per sprout. They Â can be steamed lightly until chewable..then frozen and used as needed. In experimenting….it took about 16 sprouts at the beginning of my day to jump start me with L-dopa and they took about 45 minutes to “Kick IN” so my finger tapping was up to speed. Â I needed 3 or 4 more sprouts about 3:00 in the afternoon and at bedtime to function efficiently just on sprouts. Â Make sure you read all the precautions in the book about using favas before you start trying them. Â Â
God Bless You. Â Â Â
