Mucuna is known for its principle ingredient: L-Dopa, a naturally occurring amino 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, bliss as well as providing good sleep and balanced hormonal function.
Mucuna has a reputation for lifting mood and enhancing sexual function. It is also increasingly being described as a "Jing Tonic". In Oriental medicine it is known to build "Jing", basically the energy stored in our kidneys, known to provide us with vital energy and primordial function. Also closely related to the energy within our DNA and overall constitution. Mucuna nourishes that connection, enlivening a very deep aspect of our soul.
For those of you concocting some Valentine magic for your partner, be sure to sprinkle this on everything. It has such a delicious deep caramel flavor, that it'll be a great addition to cacao based desserts.
