What is Mucuna pruriens extract?

Mucuna pruriens extract, accoriding to wikipedia, is an annual, climbing shrub with long vines that can reach over 15 m in length. Mucuna Pruriens has many other names, such as Velvet Bean, Cowitch, cowhage, Werepe, Karara, Agbara,etc. Mucuna pruriens, one of the popular Ayurvedic herbs, contains L-Dopa, a precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. Mucuna has been used for generations in India for Parkinson's disease. L-dopa converts into dopamine, an important brain chemical involved in mood, sexuality, and movement.

Constituents of Mucuna pruriens extract

There are many ingredients in mucuna pruriens, while L-dopa is the main content that we care about. Mature seeds contain typically 3.1-6.1% Levodopa, although up to 12.5% has been recorded. The leaves tend to contain around 0.5%.


How does Mucuna pruriens extract work?

Mucuna pruriens extract contains levodopa (L-dopa), which is used to treat Parkinson's disease. L-dopa is changed to the chemical dopamine in the brain. Symptoms of Parkinson's disease occur in patients due to low levels of dopamine in the brain. Unfortunately, most L-dopa is broken down in the body before it ever reaches the brain unless special chemicals are used with levodopa. These chemicals are not present in Mucuna pruriens extract. L-DOPA from mucuna pruriens has been shown to be safer and more effective for controlling Parkinson's disease than the pharmaceutical drugs Levodopa and Carbidopa. This is because the vast array of other chemical constituents that accompany L-DOPA in the unprocessed plant also play a role in its ability to manage Parkinson's disease.


Benefits of taking Mucuna pruriens extract supplements

Mucuna pruriens has been used for centuries for its broad health benefits. The main functional ingredient in it is L-dopa as an important brain chemical involved in mood, sexuality, and movement. The key benefits of Mucuna pruriens extract are summarized as below:

1. Increase in Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Levels

Mucuna pruriens extract has been proven to be able to increase the body's ability to produce Human Growth Hormone (HGH) naturally. This is possible through the stimulation of the pituitary gland that is responsible for the production of Human Growth Hormone. This is important as HGH has very many benefits for both genders.

2. Boost Testosterone and Libido in Men and Women

Among plants, Mucuna Pruriens has unique aphrodisiac power and boosts Testosterone and libido. For centuries, it has been recognized for this purpose by indigenous peoples in India and Brazil.


4. prevent Parkinson’s disease

Mucuna Pruriens extract contains the amino acid L-dopa that stimulates the production of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Parkinson’s is a neurological disease that causes muscle stiffness trembling and stilted speech. Increased dopamine levels help to soothe the muscles and prevent them from shaking. It also helps to rebuild degenerated muscles. Serotonin is also obtained from Mucuna and helps to regulate moods and sleep cycles. This is highly beneficial for anyone suffering an illness.

Maximum tolerable daily dose of L-Dopa for a 150 lb person is approx. 1.5 grams (1500 mg).
