Also known as
Mucuna pruriens, L-Dopa
Mucuna pruriens is a leguminous vine that has naturalized itself throughout the entire world thanks to its near indestructible sea-faring beans. Besides being used as jewelry, these beans also act as a powerful physical & mental tonic which have gained respect as a medicinal food-herb in not only the Ayurvedic system of medicine but also in South American Shamanic rituals & other herbal based healing systems. Mucuna pruriens contains a wide variety of nutrients & neurotransmitters, strengthening the body & mind while tonifying the adrenal & endorphin systems. Mucuna contains a high concentration of the compound 'L-Dopa' which is a direct precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine.
Full spectrum extract of Mucuna pruriens, possessing a 40% total L-Dopa content and the full profile of other actives in the bean.
Recommended amount per dose is 100-250 mg, or a 1/5th to half full size '00' capsule. Absorption of L-Dopa is greatly enhanced on an empty stomach when consumed with green tea, carob, or cacao.
Mucuna is one of the best foods available for the fortification of the entire body & mind and excels as an aphrodisiac and muscle builder which combines optimally with stimulating herbs and activities, replenishing neurotransmitters involved in mood, sexuality, focus, and feelings of well being. It is also possibly the best natural tool available for the promotion of human growth hormone levels, which has potent anti-aging and fat-burning effects.
Mucuna has a potent stimulant action and should not be mixed with other potent stimulants, even high levels of caffeine. Do not exceed the recommended dosage and do not use on a daily basis. It is recommended to cycle this and all mucuna based formulations as to not exceed more time on the herb than off. Discontinue use if any anxiety or other side effects occur.
Do not consume without knowing an accurate dosage. A milligram scale is highly recommended.
