Velvet Bean


Mood Boosting Adaptogen

Mucuna pruriens, also known as the Velvet Bean, is a nutritive tonic and adaptogen commonly used to nourish the nervous system, support healthy sexual energy, and strengthen and tone the reproductive organs. 

  • Promotes a healthy nervous system. As a rejuvenating herb, mucuna has a profoundly nourishing and rejuvenating effect. It can minimize the effects of stress while supporting a calm and stable nervous system.
  • Supports the brain and intellect. As an extension of the nervous system, the brain and intellect are also strengthened and rejuvenated by mucuna’s nourishing qualities.
  • Supports motor skills and coordination. Mucuna’s work in the nervous system directly affects the muscles as well, encouraging fluid muscular movements, proper sensation, coordination, and keen motor skills.
  • Revitalizes the reproductive system.  Mucuna is a reproductive tonic that offers support to everyone, including but not limited to those who identify as male and female. It supports fertility, healthy sperm and ova, proper functioning of the reproductive organs, and healthy genital secretions. As an aphrodisiac, mucuna bolsters healthy sexual energy and libido.
  • Supports healthy digestion and elimination. Because it promotes smooth muscle contractions, mucuna can help foster healthy digestive function and promote proper elimination.
  • Natural source of levodopa (L-dopa). Mucuna’s naturally occurring levodopa is an essential precursor of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which contributes to brain and nervous system health. Dopamine plays an important role in behavior, cognition, voluntary movement, sleep, mood, working memory, and learning.


This is a 15% extract (3:1 ratio) meaning each serving contains a 15% concentration of L-Dopa.


Pairs well with Ashwaganda!

Suggested use: Begin by taking 1/2 teaspoon each day if no reactions occur work up to 1 teaspoon daily. Mix with water, juice, yogurt, add to smoothie, or infuse into tea. Mucuna may work best when taken together with green tea extract.
