I tried my first dose of mucuna yesterday -- 1/4 tsp 15% mucuna (SunPotion) with Vitamin C (both powder, mixed together in water), fish oil, EGCG as Silvestrov suggests. I had no immediate GI symptoms, but an hour later when I wanted to eat I found I had no appetite and had to force myself to eat, not usual for me. Then another hour and I started to get bloating, and then the runs! I knew GI symptoms were a possibility but not expecting this. I'm on the low side weight wise and can't afford to lose more. Since a nasty bug I picked up in Mexico a year ago, my digestive system has been sensitive, but getting better. Is this kind of reaction unusual? Any suggestions? Am I less likely to get GI upset with a) capsules, or b) the purer extract form of mucuna? Could any of the other components of the cocktail contribute to this?
