Benefits of Mucuna Pruriens
- Stress Relief
- Quality Sleep
Mucuna Pruriens belongs to the Ayurvedic system of medicine. It's been traditionally used for mood, brain, and energy support, to calm the nervous system and positively promote mental health and stress response.
Mucuna is most well known for containing L-Dopa, a very powerful, naturally occurring amino acid that is a precursor to several neurotransmitters, including adrenaline, noradrenaline, and dopamine. Dopamine is depleted by stress, stimulants, drug abuse, and alcohol. Higher levels of dopamine help promote better sleep and an increased sense of wellbeing.
Mucuna pruriens also has a significant antioxidant action that works with L-dopa to promote brain health. When L-dopa crosses the blood-brain barrier it helps to increase brain levels of dopamine, an essential neurotransmitter associated with regulating mood and cognition.
Research also suggests Mucuna pruriens supports the brain by keeping cognitive and neural functions in check, even encouraging neural activity.
Mucuna is described as a Jing tonic herb. Jing is the primal energy of our individual life force, the principal quality which activates our creative, sexual and reproductive potential.
