One of Ayurveda's Most Restorative Herbs
Mucuna, also commonly known as velvet bean, is an Ayurvedic herb that has been used for centuries in India and Africa and has carried into modern medicine due to its vast range of uses. It is a legume notable for its ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen in the soil, allowing farmers to use them in a crop rotation with other plants that deplete nitrogen.
These restorative properties are a reflection of what makes mucuna medicinally-revered, particularly for your brain-health and sexual vibrancy. Today, mucuna is often used in modern medicinal prescriptions to supplement and restore levels of dopamine. Mucuna achieves this with its naturally high levels of L-Dopa.
The Benefits of All Natural L-Dopa
L-Dopa is an amino acid that converts into dopamine in the body.
Dopamine has an extensive list of functions, affecting movement, emotions, the experience of pleasure, memory, and functionality of the brain and nervous system.
Raised dopamine can also stimulate production of the human growth hormone, and is mucuna’s reputational link to longevity and anti-aging.

Unmatched Quality and Sourcing | Next Level Potency
Our Mucuna is a potent, concentrated extract - not merely ground up raw herb. Through our extraction process, the active constituents are extracted from our Organic Mucuna, and then concentrated to a 10 to 1 ratio. This means that TEN pounds of whole Mucuna is concentrated down into one pound of extract. This results in far more potency, bio-availability, and efficacy in less space.
We have had a relationship with our distributor for many years, and not only know exactly where our herbs grow, but ensure the purity and potency with 3rd party lab testing. We are involved in every step of the process and proud to take the extra effort to ensure the quality so you don’t have to. Our products are grown organically, extracted purely, and secured in their respective packaging without the use of any fillers.
Suggestions on usage:
This powder can be added directly to smoothies, juices, and protein shakes. The flavor is versatile and would blend well with anything sweet, fruity, or savory. It is already prepared and ready to consume as-is- no heat or stewing necessary. Powdered extracts generally mix more easily in warmer temperatures, but a blender can be used to help incorporate the powder into cooler foods and beverages or simply to ensure more thorough distribution.**
