Known as Nature’s “Dopa-Bean” | Dopamine + Serotonin Booster | Nootropic | Adaptogenic Legume

Mucuna, also known as velvet bean, is one of the only naturally occurring (and certainly most concentrated) sources of L-Dopa-as in dopamine. L-Dopa, is a naturally occurring amino acid which transforms into Dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that ignites a feeling of joy and bliss.

Mucuna pruriens is an adaptogenic legume that has been used for hundreds, if not thousands of years, as a superfood for nutrient density, energy and mood boost. Indigenous peoples use to prescribe it to those needing a boost, or assistance in recovery from depression.

Regular consumption of Mucuna will have a gentle balancing effect on the brain and hormonal systems associated with its powerful compounds. For this reason it is often used in cases of depression and anxiety, which may be in part related to the depletion of these essential neurotransmitters. May act as a mild antidepressant, may relieve stress, and may support sexual function.

We recommend everyone listen to their body intuitively; follow the dosage that resonates the most with you.

It's important you cycle on and off with Mucuna, along with most (if not all!) herbs. We recommend intaking it (1/2tsp per serving) anywhere 2-4 weeks. Stop for 1-2 weeks, and then begin again. This allows for you to analyze effects.  Dopamine dependency has only been witnesses when HIGH and regular doses are taken. This is where cycling off is vital, as it avoids any kind of potential dependency. If you follow the suggested dosage, its mild and regulating.
