MUCUNA PRURIENS

Mucuna Pruriens

 

How does it work?

Mucuna pruriens, also known as velvet bean or cowhage, is a herbal medicine used to assist in treating Parkinson’s disease due to the naturally occurring levels of levodopa (L-dopa), which converts into the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain.1 Recent studies have shown Mucuna pruriens to increase testosterone levels,2 regulates steroidogenesis and improves semen quality in infertile men.3 It has also been shown to have blood sugar regulating qualities through stimulating the release of insulin.4 These actions have lead to the use of Mucuna pruriens in the bodybuilding and weight loss industry.

What results can be expected?

Mucuna pruriens may assist in boosting testosterone levels which may help men with infertility issues or those requiring a natural testosterone source for exercise performance.5 Mucuna pruriens may also assist in weight loss through blood sugar regulation.6
