How To Take Mucuna
In this article, I will talk about how to take Mucuna, what mucuna is and how it can help us, as well as where we can get the best quality at the best price and what the ideal dose is for best effect.
What Is Mucuna?
Mucuna or Mucuna Pruriens as it better known is a legume that grows in the tropics, in particular, Asia and Africa. It is commonly known as Bengal velvet bean, Florida velvet bean, Yokohama velvet bean. Mauritius velvet bean, or simply just velvet bean as well as cowage, lacuna bean cowitch, and Lyon bean!
It is used in Ayurvedic medicine, and has been so for just over 500 years to treat a wide variety of ailments including snake bites and scorpion stings! It is said to be effective in treating anxiety, stress, depression, lack of sexual desire and libido, as well as insomnia, and stress-induced high blood pressure.
How Does Mucuna Work?
Mucuna is rather high in a powerful amino acid and bioactive compound levo dopa, and also a precursor for neurotransmitters dopamine, noradrenaline, and adrenaline. And is very high in antioxidants that work in synergy with those compounds.
Levodopa has the ability cross the blood-brain barrier and directly increase levels of the feel-good brain chemical dopamine giving us an overall sense of well-being, joy, and happiness.
Dopamine is responsible for augmenting sensation of sexual desire and sex drive. Mucuna also triggers the increase in the other component associated with increased sex drive – testosterone in a rather indirect way.
With the herb helping with stress and insomnia, both of which as associated with reducing testosterone production, the amount of the male sex hormone is increased in a rather natural subtle and indirect manner.
The recommended dose of mucuna is 1 gram to be taken daily. It is best to cycle this herb on a typical 5 days on and 2 days off cycle. My suggestion is to use the 5 days on cycle your 5 most stressful days of the week, perhaps your work days where more work-related stress may occur and be at their highest.
How To Take Mucuna For Best Effects
Mucuna can typically be taken on its own, with water but in my experience, it makes an excellent addition to your morning or afternoon coffee or indeed and much better for helping it to be more effective, take it with raw cacao making your own healthy chocolate drink.
You can also use the raw cacao powder to make a rather nice and healthy mocha! and real healthy chocolate!
Raw Cacao contains powerful antioxidants and other well-known components that help with erectile dysfunction. Importantly, for helping Mucuna is the fact that raw organic cacao contains phenylalanine, which gets converted into dopamine and helps the mucuna along nicely.
