Mucuna Pruriens Powder | ANIMA MUNDI APOTHECARY
by ANIMA MUNDI
Mucuna, also known as velvet bean, is one of the only naturally occurring (and certainly most concentrated) sources of L-Dopa—as in dopamine. L-Dopa is a naturally occurring amino acid which transforms into Dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that ignites a feeling of joy and bliss.
Mucuna pruriens is an adaptogenic legume that has been used for hundreds of years as a superfood for nutrient density, energy and mood boost. Indigenous peoples use to prescribe it to those needing a boost, or assistance in recovery from depression, as it may relieve stress, may help regulate dopamine and may support sexual function.
Suggested Serving: Add 1/2-1tsp in coffee, cacao, tea, smoothies, or mocktails.
