- Mood Boosting Superherb -

Mucuna Pruriens is one of the only naturally occurring (and certainly most concentrated) sources of L-Dopa. 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. Traditional Ayurvedic Indian medicine has long used Mucuna Pruriens for management of nervous system diseases including Parkinsons. (1)

Throughout the centuries, 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.

Mucuna is best used sporadically or situationally as needed for restorative purposes. The 2:1 rule of two weeks on, one week off is a reasonable dosing schedule, although long-term usage is still considered generally safe. Like everything in life, it is about balance. Mucuna can be mixed in with your favorite recipes or mixed in a glass of lukewarm water. For maximum effect, take it away from food.
