Mucuna pruriens, or velvet bean, is a tropical medicinal plant originating from Indian medicine. In Ayurveda, it is regarded as a strong aphrodisiac and booster of sexual function. The seeds of the plant contain many psychoactive substances, including natural levodopa, which is a direct precursor to dopamine. Increasing the level of this neurotransmitter leads primarily to a higher level of motivation, better psychological well-being, improved memory and concentration. This also correlates with the increased synthesis of testosterone, which promotes the strengthening of libido and prevents sexual dysfunction.
Preparations from this category are most popular among men. There is evidence that extracts from Mucuna pruriens cause a significant increase in desire and have a positive effect on sexual performance. In addition, they favor the improvement of sperm parameters and strengthen fertility. According to the opinion of many users, it additionally increases the circumference of the penis, although this thesis has not been yet confirmed by scientific research.
It must be remembered that the specific properties of Mucuna pruriens seeds are primarily attributable to the L-Dopa contained in them. When choosing a supplement from velvet bean it is worth making sure that it is standardized for the content of levodopa. The largest selection of such preparations can be found in our store's offer.
