Mucuna Pruriens


Mucuna Pruriens is a well-established herbal drug that has been researched for improving depression, sleep, nervous disorders, aphrodisiacs and Parkinson’s disease. As well as used for the management of male infertility.

Mucuna Pruriens bodybuilding benefits are also potentially significant.

It is also well known for being naturally high in L-dopa

Although more research is needed, scientists think that tannins from mucuna may help fight viruses and other microbes, inflammation, and high blood pressure.

Mucuna Pruriens (Velvet Bean) – a tropical legume known by a multitude of common names. The seeds contain high concentrations of levodopa, a direct precursor of the neurotransmitter dopamine. It has long been used in traditional Ayurvedic Indian medicine. The velvet bean is an annual climbing vine that grows 3-18 m in height. It is indigenous to tropical regions, especially Africa, India, and the West Indies. Its flowers are white to dark purple and hang in long clusters.

As we get older, HGH levels drop, because the pituitary gland produces less as we age. This is why older people have less muscle mass. So because Mucuna Pruriens raises dopamine levels, it can also raise levels of the human growth hormone, helping maintain and build muscle mass. That on its own means that Mucuna Pruriens bodybuilding benefits are potentially significant.

Safety Information:
If you raise levels of dopamine production you will feel happier, but your body will become more reliant on this external source of raising dopamine and will stop producing as much of its own. So when you stop taking Mucuna Pruriens it will take a while for the dopamine levels to recover.

While this supplement could be the magic pill you’ve been looking for, be cautious of dosage to ensure you don’t become tolerant or dependent on it. It’s recommended to cycle this supplement and only take it 4-5 days a week.
