Mucuna is a herb from Asia and South America that has been around for thousands of years and used in Ayurvedic Medicine for ages… that has many health benefits needed in this day and age.
Mucuna contains L-Dopa which is a great amino acid that helps to create dopamine and serotonin in the brain, thus boosting mood and enhance libido and also increasing testosterone levels in both men and women. And it contains lots of powerful chemicals such as mucunine, mucunadine, prurienine, puriendine, mucunainine and more… plus venolic acid, glutathione, lecithin, gallic acid, and beta-sitosterol. And because Mucuna contains amino acids that boost dopamine and serotonin levels it has been used in the treatment of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
At the same time Mucuna produces a boost of energy, endurance, and vitality that is unmatched! And it has a wonderful ability as a powerful adaptogen to help with depression, stress, and anxiety because it boosts serotonin in the brain. Studies also show that adrenalin, cortisol, and noradrenalin which are all stress hormones decreased while taking Mucuna.
Plus Mucuna slows down the production of prolactin in the pituitary… prolactin causes a lack of desire by lowering testosterone production, and it also helps with premature ejaculation, heavy bleeding during periods, and vaginal discharge. Plus it boosts sperm count making it a great fertility herb for couples trying to conceive.
Mucuna is a wonderful herb for balancing hormone production, lack of hormone balance can bring about infertility, lethargy, depression, and more. Mucuna also helps induce a great nights sleep, waking up refreshed, and at the same time having a feeling of well-being and the ability to concentrate and focus better than ever.
Mucuna lowers LDL or bad cholesterol, lowers blood sugar by up to 50%, and lowers blood pressure too, and at the same time provides powerful lean muscle mass gain, while dropping pounds of fat… because it increases human growth hormone (HGH) production. Mucuna is also a powerful antioxidant that boosts the immune system and helps prevent cardiovascular disease, strokes, and cancer.
Mucuna promotes clear skin, helps with wrinkles, and builds strong healthy bones too! At the same time Mucuna helps with digestion by increasing production of amylase, lipase, and pancreatin… all important enzymes for proper digestion.
Some people use Mucuna to stop smoking, especially during the first 2 or 3 weeks… Mucuna enhances mood thus helping smokers to end their addiction by making it through the withdrawal symptoms.
And it’s a good anti-inflammatory agent helping with aches, pains, and even nerve pain.
