Mucuna Pruriens is also known as Velvet Bean, Cowitch Seed, or by its scientific name Dolichos Pruriens. It is an herb that has been used to treat a variety of mental and physical problems for more than 4,000 years. This herb grows wild in many parts of the world.
Mucuna Extract contains the amino acid L-Dopa which stimulates the production of dopamine. Dopamine has been shown to soothe muscle aches and rebuild degenerated muscles. This rise in dopamine can cause improved mood and sexual aggression. Increased dopamine levels may also allow for increased sperm count and increased potency and stamina of sperm.
Serotonin is also obtained from Mucuna and helps to regulate overall mood and sleep cycles.
Additional claims have been made that Mucuna will increase testosterone levels in the body and lead to increased muscle growth.
Parkinson’s disease – Parkinson’s is characterized by the progressive degeneration of dopamine in specific areas of the brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that is essential for the proper functioning of the brain. A lack of dopamine can cause muscles to become tense and tremble. Dopamine will not cross the blood-brain barrier, but Levodopa or L-Dopa will cross the barrier and be converted to dopamine.
Some studies have shown the L-Dopa contained in Mucuna Pruriens to be more effective than prescription forms of L-Dopa.
Mucuna Pruriens contains high concentrations of natural L-Dopa and has gained attention for the treatment of Parkinson’s.
