Mucuna is known for its principle ingredient: L-dopa, a naturally occurring amina acid which transforms into Dopamine in the Brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter which allows the dynamic functioning of the brain.
Higher levels of Dopamine have been linked with a feeling of joy and bliss as well as providing good sleep and balanced hormone function. Mucuna has a reputation for lifting mood and enhancing sexual function. It is also increasingly being described as a “Jing Tonic”.
