Mucuna Powder


Mucuna is a vigorous annual climbing legume originally from southern China and eastern India. Mucuna seeds contains tryptamines, polyphenols and tannins and are thus far the only known naturally occurring sources of L-Dopa – the precursor to dopamine, an important neurotransmitter that is essential for sleep, memory, mood, mental functions, and calming the nervous system.

The presence of L-Dopa makes mucuna a vital ally for those suffering from parkinsons disease. Mucuna doesn’t only affect dopamine, various studies also show increases in two more key neurotransmitters that affect mood: serotonin and norepinephrine – making this bean a great alternative for those suffering from lack of motivation, sex drive, and depression.
