Mucuna's Pruriens contains a principle ingredient: L-Dopa, a naturally occurring amino acid which transforms into Dopamine in the Brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter which allows the dynamic functioning of the brain.
Higher levels of Dopamine have been linked with sound sleep and an expanded sense of well-being.
Mucuna has a reputation for reliably lifting mood and enhancing sexual function. It is also increasingly being described as a "Jing Tonic". In Oriental medicine and Daoist Herbalism (two of our primary resources for Sun Potion) a Jing Tonic nourishes and rebuilds our "Jing" or essence. Jing is stored in the kidneys and is the most dense physical matter within the body, it is the combination of our congenital energy (very close to the western DNA) and present constitution. Mucuna is an excellent source for nourishing Jing in modern living.
The smoky caramel flavor of Mucuna makes it a delicious addition to Raw Cacao Creations and social alchemy. 111g jar - Contains 55 Servings.
