- Mood Boosting Adaptogen -

Known as the dopa bean, mucuna pruriens is a natural herbal supplement used in Ayurvedic medicine, an ancient practice from India, that lowers stress, reduces anxiety, improves focus, boosts the libido, and elevates mood. Also used for the management of male infertility, nervous disorders. Mucuna pruriens is also especially beneficial to brain health, its primary compound �levodopa (L-dopa)� is a precursor to dopamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline. Whilst dopamine is most commonly associated with pleasure, it actually plays a critical role in muscle control. L-dopa is synthesized in the brain into dopamine, and is often used as a treatment in Parkinson�s disease. By raising low dopamine levels, this herb can have a positive effect on motivation, attention span, the ability to relax and general mental well-being. This is a 15% extract (3:1 ratio) meaning each serving contains a 15% concentration of L-Dopa.

Suggested use: Begin by taking _ 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.
