Mucuna Pruriens, also known as Velvet Bean contains a very powerful neurotransmitter pre-cursor L-Dopa. Mucuna pruriens is a reputed remedy of Ayurveda in nervous and sexual diseases. Traditionally, Mucuna pruriens is commonly used as carminative, hypertensive and hypoglycemic agent. Mucuna pruriens has been found to contain L-DOPA, 40 mg/g of the plant. The plant/seeds contain the bioactive alkaloids mucunine, mucunadine, mucuadinine, pruriendine and nicotine, besides B-sitosterol, glutathione, lecithin, oils, venolic and gallic acids. Studies in experimental model show L-Dopa also helps in the reduction of cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Mucuna has long been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease. Mucuna has also been proven helpful when treating depression.

L-Dopa is an amino acid that converts into dopamine. Dopamine is an essential component of our body and it's required for proper functioning of the brain.  Research discovered the body converts the amino acid tyrosine into L-dopa; L-dopa is then converted into dopamine. Without the neurotransmitter dopamine to serve a damping effect on neural transmissions, muscles become tense and tremble. Mucuna pruriens is the best natural source of L-Dopa.

Benefits of Mucuna Pruriens L-Dopa:

  • Improved sleep (promotes deep sleep)
  • Reduced bodyfat & decreased cellulite
  • Decreased wrinkles
  • Improved skin texture & appearance
  • Increased bone density and reversal of osteoporosis
  • Increased lean muscle mass
  • Improved mood and sense of well-being
  • Enhanced libido & sexual performance
  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved cholestorol profile & regeneration of organs (heart, kidney, liver, lungs)
  • Dramatically strengthed immune system

Mucuna: Human Growth Hormone
L- Dopa contains natural secretagogues which may support the body's ability to stimulate the natural release of growth hormone. The blood carries the dopamine into the brain, where it naturally increases HGH production from the pituitary gland. The increased dopamine levels also optimize the production of other hormones, including testosterone, leading to increased sex drive and improved sexual performance for both men and women,  beneficial in stimulating muscle growth, as well as burning fat from fat cells.

Mucuna and Parkinson
The seed powder of Mucuna pruriens has long been used in traditional Ayurvedic Indian medicine for diseases including parkinson. L-Dopa significantly affects dopamine metabolism in the striatonigral tract. This ability helps improve Parkinsonian symptoms in humans. The seeds of Mucuna pruriens accumulate 0.2% - 2% L-dopa in their dry weight. Parkinson's disease study group evaluated activity of Mucuna pruriens extract v/s Levodopa/ caebidopa in sixty patients and during their 12 weeks treatment , they proved that the extract was effective with less adverse effects.
