Mucuna Pruriens Powder – Product Details
Derived from a legume known as the “velvet bean,” Mucuna Pruriens is a staple of Ayurvedic medicine. Both traditional herbalism and modern scientific study show that this humble plant can have powerful effects on the body and mind.
Known as a “Jing Tonic,” Mucuna Pruriens has been used for centuries as a way to rebuild and nourish our very essence. Because Jing (the densest physical matter in the body) is believed to be stored in the kidneys, it represents a powerful combination of congenital energy and general constitution.
But Mucuna Pruriens Powder also contains a very special ingredient: L-Dopa. L-Dopa, also Levadopa is the precursor to Dopamine, which is a naturally-occurring neurotransmitter in the brain. It allows for improved cognitive ability, sound sleep, enhanced sexual functioning and overall emotional wellbeing. While the body does produce Dopamine on its own, adding Mucuna Pruriens Powder to a regular routine can support physical, mental and spiritual alignment by soothing the nervous system, enhancing brain function and calming anxiety. Data also shows that L-Dopa can play an integral role in the treatment of neurological conditions like Parkinson’s disease, with new and ongoing research studies.
Ingredients: Organic Cold Water Extract of the Mucuna Pruriens Bean containing 15% L-DOPA, a precursor to Dopamine. Grown and processed in India.
