BioPure Organic Macuna Bean Powder
Mucuna pruriens, also known as Cowitch, or Velvet Bean because of the furry coat of hairs that covers its seedpod, is a trailing legume that grows in tropical climates in India, China, Africa, and southeastern areas of North America. Our Certified Organic Mucuna is grown in the valleys of Pune, in the state of Maharashtra. Mucuna Bean is used as a minor food crop and various parts of the plant have been employed in traditional cultures in a number of countries and are extensively used in Ayurveda.
Mucuna beans are a source of L-DOPA, a precursor to Dopamine, and 5-HTP, a precursor to Seratonin, both important neurotransmitters. Dopamine is essential to processes that control movement, emotional response, and the experience of pain and pleasure. Seratonin is involved in memory, learning, and the regulation of mood, appetite, and sleep. Mucuna’s bioactive ingredients have antioxidant properties and support mood, joint health, neurological health and detoxification.
