MUCUNA | Dopamine Bean
Dopamine + Serotonin Booster*
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, if not thousands 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.
Regular consumption of Mucuna will have a gentle balancing effect on the brain and hormonal systems associated with its powerful compounds. For this reason it is often used in cases of depression and anxiety, which may be in part related to the depletion or underperformance of these essential neurotransmitters. May relieve stress, may help regulate dopamine and may support sexual function.

CAUTION: It's important to cycle on and off with Mucuna. We recommend taking it consistently for 2-4 weeks; stop for 1-2 weeks, and then begin again. Dopamine dependency has only been witnessed when HIGH and regular doses are taken. This is where cycling is vital, as it avoids any kind of potential dependency. When taken at the recommended dosage in cycles, it is mild and regulating.
