DOPAMINERGIC NERVOUS SYSTEM RESTORATIVE
40g | approximately 20-40 serves
Used medicinally by nearly every tropical culture on the planet, and as a nourishing tonic in Ayurveda for over 2000 years, this "Velvet Bean" has a profoundly balancing and restorative effect on the entire nervous system.
The focus of research has been on the l-dopa content of Mucuna pruriens (l-dopa is the precursor to dopamine), however current research actually shows 5-htp and Serotonin content as well as DMT. Famous as the “Spirit Molecule", DMT is psychedelic in high doses, however it is produced endogenously by our pineal gland in smaller amounts during deep meditation, birth, sexual ecstasy, extreme physical stress, and near-death experiences. The quantities in the whole bean Mucuna powder mimic our natural biological levels. Regular consumption will have a gentle balancing effect on the brain and hormonal systems and it can be used in cases of depression and anxiety, which may be in part related to the depletion of these essential neurotransmitters.
In addition, it is tonifying to neurons, and is used to boost mood, focus and motivation and improve stress response, and has an energising, revitalising, and nourishing effect.
Mucuna supports healthy libido and sexual energy in both men and women, as well as fertility, healthy sperm and ova, proper functioning of the reproductive organs, verility, and stamina.
