Kapikachhu (Organic Traditions) All Around Aphrodisiac
Mucuna is a tropical vine that produces pods containing numerous seeds. These precious seeds are an excellent source of the amino acid levodopa (L-dopa), which also functions as the precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine in our brains. Low dopamine levels can affect your mood, alertness, sleep, memory, as well as sexual and muscle functions. Therefore, by consuming foods that are high in L-dopa, such as Mucuna / Kapikacchu powder, you may be able to enhance your body's natural dopamine production.
While its brain health benefits are what Mucuna pruriens is most known for, its health benefits span a wide range that include:
Increases sperm count in men and ovulation in women.
Acts as a restorative nutrient for the nervous system.
Increases blood circulation to the genitals.
Decreases symptoms of stress and anxiety. Calms nerves.
Strengthens and tones the sexual glands.
Releases bound up testosterone, increasing the level of bio-available testosterone.
Reduces fat and improves muscle tone. (By supporting healthy testosterone levels, Mucuna pruriens supports anabolic metabolism, increasing your tendency to burn fat and to build muscle.)
