Mucuna Pruriens Powder

Mucuna pruriens is a tropical legume also known as velvet bean.

Mucuna is also known as the “dopamine bean” since it is a good source of L-Dopa (4 – 7%), from which dopamine is made in the body. The high L-dopa content offers additional benefits to the plant itself: it protects the seeds from insects and pests. Mucuna seeds are also a major source for commercially extracting pure L-dopa, which is used in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.


L-dopa from Mucuna pruriens may have advantages over synthetic L-dopa when given to Parkinson’s patients, as synthetic L-dopa has more side effects in the long term.

Recent research uncovered that mucuna also boosts antioxidants and scavenges free radicals in the whole body.
