Mucuna Pruriens, also known as Velvet Bean, is a bean that grows on trees all over India and tropical regions. The velvet coating of hairs covering its seedpods is due to the presence of serotonin which can cause severe itching and skin irritation if touched.
Used in Ayurvedic medicine for over two thousand years, numerous studies have been made on the health benefits of Mucuna pruriens. It contains naturally occurring L-dopa, an essential precursor of the neurotransmitter dopamine which promotes a healthy nervous system enhancing sleep, mood, cognition, working memory and learning.
It also promotes a healthy reproductive system, supports the body’s ability to handle stress, enhances balance and coordination, improves energy and endurance.*
