Notes for this study:
In a 3-month trial, 60 men undergoing infertility assessment took 5 g/d of Mucuna Pruriens seed powder containing 3.6–4.2 of L-DOPA. The participants were equal proportions normozoospermic, oligozoospermic, and asthenozoospermic.

There was an increase in semen volume, sperm concentration, sperm count, and motility compared with baseline. There was also an increase in total lipids, phospholipids, LDL, and triglycerides, and a reduction in malondialdehyde
