Mucuna Pruriens Extract (15% L-Dopa)
Mucuna Pruriens, commonly known as Velvet Bean or Cow Itch, is a plant indigenous to India, and has been used in Ayurveda for many different positive uses. The herb contains naturally occurring L-Dopa which is a neurotransmitter, and a precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. L-Dopa (r Levodopa) converts into dopamine, an important brain chemical involved in mood, sexuality, and movement. As such, Mucuna Pruriens seeds have also been found to have mood boosting properties. Recognized as an aphrodisiac in Ayurveda.
