|After the discovery that
Mucuna seeds contain L-dopa, an anti-parkinson’s disease drug, its
demand in international market has increased many fold (Farooqi 1999)
and demand has motivated Indian farmers to start commercial cultivation.
Macuna Pruriens is commonly known as cowhage (Latin) and kiwanch
(Sanskrit), Velvet Bean and Cowitch,. Traditionally, Mucuna Pruriens
find use in number of diseases and is commonly used as carminative,
hypotensive & hypoglycemic agent. From phytochemistry point of view, the
drug contains L-dopa, tryptamine alkaloids, lecithin and tannins.
Traditionally Macuna Pruriens has been used to increase sexual
desire and ability, The seeds of the mucuna pruriens plant produce
chemicals that support healthy levels of testosterone in both men and
women. It also aids in the production of a hormone commonly associated
with the "pleasure system" of the brain, providing feelings of enjoyment
L-Dopa is an amino acid that converts into dopamine. Dopamine is an
essential component of our body and it's required for proper functioning
of the brain. Research discovered the body converts the amino acid
tyrosine into L-dopa; L-dopa is then converted into dopamine. Without
the neurotransmitter dopamine to serve a damping effect on neural
transmissions, muscles become tense and tremble.
L- Dopa contains natural secretagogues which may support the
body's ability to stimulate the natural release of growth hormone. The
blood carries the dopamine into the brain, where it naturally increases
HGH production from the pituitary gland. The increased dopamine levels
also optimize the production of other hormones, including testosterone,
leading to increased sex drive and improved sexual performance for both
men and women, beneficial in stimulating muscle growth, as well as
burning fat from fat cells.
