Product Detail

Mucuna pruriens, widely known as “velvet bean,” is actually a legume (not an herb) that grows in the tropics, originally from southern China and eastern India.[3] While the bean is highly beneficial, you don’t want to touch the pod because it causes severe itching and irritation of the skin. In fact, one of its English names is “Cowitch.” The dopa bean possesses an active compound known as L-dopa, which is a non-protein amino acid, in high concentration.[4] Because it boosts dopamine levels in the brain, it’s often used to treat Parkinson’s disease in Ayurvedic medicine. Western medicine uses a synthetic form of L-dopa to treat Parkinson’s patients’ symptoms, but clinical trials have shown the use of mucuna pruriens to have equivalent (or better) results without the side effects. - Emily Mahler
