Mucuna Pruriens - Anyone tried it?

I was recently reading up on the mutations in my methylation pathway and the best protocol moving forward when I stumbled on mucuna pruriens in some of Dr Amy Yasko's literature. I've been struggling with severe depression for a number of years (I believe as a result of my methylation being messed up) and this looked like it could be a beneficial supplement to take. I am currently on Methyl B12 and will be adding in methylfolate this weekend. The methyl B12 has been helping with energy, mood and overall health issues I've had but still have a long way to go. This post is mainly directed at whether or not anyone has used mucuna and if it has been beneficial for them. Thanks in advance!
