In this article, I aim to explain clearly to my reader’s question “What is Mucuna Pruriens?” I will also explain how it can help sufferers of erectile dysfunction and where to get the herb with the highest percentage of the active compound that help it to work its magic on your sex life!
With nothing else on the agenda, let’s get right to it!
What Is Mucuna Pruriens?
It is a herb commonly used in the Indian Herbal system of Ayurvedic medicine and has a history of use dating back just over five hundred years! Yes, 500 years! half a millennia of use within a herbal system that is 4 millennia old!
It is a tropical plant that is very much like a bean and grows in the wild, which pretty much means that Mucuna Pruriens is an organic product, meaning pesticide, chemical, and GMO-free!
For medicinal purposes, the bean, seed, and the hair that grows on the bean’s pod is used. It grows within the tropical zones of Asia, Central and South America as well as India, Africa, and the Carribean!
There are a whole host of other names in which Mucuna Pruriens is known as Such as Dolichos, Velvet Glove, Couhage, Cowhage, Mucuna Prurient as well as Mucuna Pruriens or just plain old Mucuna!
Common uses are mood enhancement, insect bites including scorpion bites, even used for snake bites too! It is also used for pain relief and enhancing sexual responsiveness in both men and women.
It is a very good treatment for stress and stress-induced insomnia and stress-induced high blood pressure as well as stress induced low testosterone levels and stress-induced erectile dysfunction!
You get the picture this herb is great for relieving stress and illnesses that are directly and indirectly caused by stress!
How Does Mucuna Pruriens Work?
Like anything else used in natural medicine be it a flower, a plant, a tree, a herb it is the active compounds found within them that work their magic and give us the associated or desired health benefits.
With Mucuna Pruriens the benefits come for an active component known as levodopa (or L-Dopa as an abbreviation). It is an amino acid and a bioactive compound that is a precursor to several neurotransmitters such as dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline.
Augmented levels of those neurotransmitters lead to enhanced energy and vitality as well as increased sex drive and feelings of sexual desire, decreased stress levels, and improved quality of sleep. A greater overall sense of well-being and calmness is experienced also.
Some nice secondary indirect effects can be seen such as lowering of high blood pressure, increased testosterone production. This is due to improved sleep and lowering of stress.
Worthy of note, clinical trials have shown that independent of lower stress levels and a reduction in the levels of the stress hormone cortisol, Mucuna Pruriens has been proven clinically to elevate testosterone levels.
This herb is very high in cell repairing and free radicle fighting antioxidants that work in synergy with the amino acid Levodopa making Mucuna Pruriens very good for your brain health.
Levodopa helps to directly increase our levels of the feel-fantastic brain chemical dopamine by passing the blood brain barrier.
And dopamine is the brain chemical and neurotransmitter associated with feelings of joy, happiness and uh huh..feeling horny!
That is how Mucuna Pruriens works to help sufferers of erectile dysfunction, by addressing some of the underlying causes such as stress, insomnia, high blood pressure, low testosterone and helps to increase sex drive and increasing feelings of sexual desire.
Increased sex drive, sensations of sexual desire and augmented testosterone all help to bring around stronger firmer erections!
And For Erectile Dysfunction?
If your cause of erectile dysfunction is related to stress, low libido and infrequent sensations of sexual desire, low testosterone, insomnia, and high blood pressure can definitely help you.
One of the better and stronger aspects of Mucuna Pruriens is that it really does help to increase and stimulate sexual desire in us men and in the ladies too, which means that if you have no problems in the trouser department regarding erectile dysfunction but do have a low libido (or your partner has low libido) you can use it to enhance your (or their) libido and sensations of sexual desire.
Do note that it is very safe for the ladies to take to increase their libido and sensations of sexual desire.
Side Bar: If your partner has low libido or you suspect that they do you could give your relationship a bit more va-va-voom in the bedroom by being nice, kind, sweet, loving and make them a hot chocolate (Raw Cacao is best) or a coffee…with Mucuna Pruriens added!
