Mucuna pruriens, commonly known as velvet bean or cow itch, is a plant indigenous to India, and has been used in Ayurveda for many different conditions. The ayurvedic names are Kaunch, Atmagupta, or Kapikacchu. Scientists and doctors in the west are now beginning to take a serious look at the potential benefits of this potent herb in a number of medical and psychological conditions.
The herb contains L-DOPA which is a neurotransmitter, and a precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. The L-DOPA content increases when used as an extract. L-DOPA, or levodopa converts into dopamine, an important brain chemical involved in mood, sexuality, and movement. As such, M. pruriens seeds have also been found to have antidepressant properties. It has long been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for diseases including management and treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Recognized as an aphrodisiac in Ayurveda, mucuna pruriens has been shown to maintain and normalize testosterone levels, which may lead to deposition of protein in the muscles and help increase muscle mass and strength.
