Velvet Beans Powder | Organic (Mucuna Pruriens)
Mucuna pruriens is a vine native to India, the Caribbean, and tropical areas of Africa. Because of the velvet-like layer of hairs that covers its seedpods, this tropical plant is sometimes known as "velvet bean". It is also known as cowhage, cowitch, lacuna bean, and Lyon bean. In traditional medicine, it is considered a treatment for shake venom poisoning.
The seeds of the Mucuna pruriens plant are known to naturally contain significant amounts of levodopa, often known as L-dopa. L-dopa is a precursor of dopamine, a neurotransmitter in the brain that is required not just for normal bodily movement coordination, but also for learning, increasing motivation, and mood regulation.
As a result, it has been found to aid with male infertility, and nervous system diseases, such as countering Parkinson's symptoms, sperm quality, mood, and stress. In Ayurvedic medicine, it is considered an aphrodisiac.
Take 1 to 3 tea spoons per day or follow the instructions of an expert. Mix into drinks, hot beverages such as lattes and hot chocolate, smoothies, hot or cold cereals, granola, overnight oats, bars, chia seed pudding, or even baked products (although cooking it at high temperatures may destroy some of the phytonutrients).
◉ Should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry area- to preserve its flavor and properties.
