Our Story

Simple really.

We started MacuDopa to help Caryn with her condition. We all stepped in to create a mucuna range that would transform her health.

Caryn's Story

My diagnosis came as a huge shock.  I was young and had a brilliant challenging career in the global music industry. 


’I was quite frankly devastated and unsure what to do. I turned to my brother, Max, for help.  He is a very experienced naturopathic functional medicine practitioner, and suggested that I try the Mucuna pruriens bean.  My neurology Professor, based at London’s leading neurological hospital, was supportive.
