Fava Bean General Information
Fava Bean has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for over 4, 000 years. It is a plant-based form of L-dopa, which Indians used to treat Parkinsonís disease. Other synthetic forms of L-dopa lose their effectiveness after long term use, which prompted Indian researchers to reexamine the Fava Bean plant for its long term effects. It was discovered that cooked Fava Beans reduced many of the symptoms of Parkinsonís with no long term negative effects. In folk medicine, it is believed that the Fava Bean has diuretic, expectorant and tonic properties.

Fava Bean Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Raising the dopamine levels in the brain has been found to be the best therapy in the treatment of Parkinsonís disease as it improves the transmission of nerve impulses in the brain; however, dopamine supplements cannot pass through the blood-brain barrier, therefore, they are ineffective. L-dopa though, converts to dopamine and can cross the blood-brain barrier, making it very effective in the treatment of Parkinsonís disease.

Fava Bean Dosage Information
Fava Bean comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. It is important to consult with your physician regarding the appropriate doses to use for the treatment of Parkinsonís disease. For treating other conditions, read and follow product label directions.

Fava Bean Safety & Interaction Information
Fava Beans are generally regarded as safe; however, one side effect is flatulence, which eventually diminishes once your digestive system becomes tolerant. Fava Bean contains tyramine which should be avoided if taking antidepressant drugs such as Marplan, Nardil, or Parnate, Eldepryl, a Parkinsonís medication, Zyvox, an antibiotic, or Furoxone, a diarrhea medication. There are those who have an allergy to this plant which is called favism, and can be life threatening.
