Mucuna 15% I-Dopa 3 oz
Dual Extract (water and alcohol) 15 % I-Dopa
Mucuna, also commonly known as velvet bean, is an herb that has been used for centuries in India and has carried into modern medicine due to its vast range of uses. In nature, the plant itself is a legume.
Mucuna is known to be helpful for restful sleep, anxiety relief, increasing brain power, calming the nervous system, uplifting the mood and deeply nourishing tissues and fluids of the body.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Mucuna is known as a Yang and Jing herb, that helps to restore the kidney/adrenal systems, reproductive abilities, and cognitive functions. Mucuna promotes sexual health, boosting the libido and sex drive while also improving sperm count for infertile men.
Mucuna is used as a powerful neuro-protectant to treat conditions that are stemmed from the brain and nervous system, one of the biggest being Parkinson’s disease.
Mucuna pruriens contains high levels of naturally occurring L-dopa, which is the precursor to dopamine. Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter that is essential for sleep, memory, mood, mental functions, and calming the nervous system.
By using this dopa bean supplement, you can support the body’s production of dopamine naturally. L-dopa crosses the blood-brain barrier and aides the body in creating this fantastic feel-good hormone.

Mucuna has a high L-dopa content, which can raise dopamine levels in the brain and body. Increasing dopamine levels or using L-dopa could be dangerous in some people, including those with the following conditions:
Glaucoma (narrow-angle glaucoma), as L-dopa can increase eye blood pressure
Chronic nerve pain (neuropathy), as L-dopa may worsen it
Stomach ulcers (now or in the past)
Psychosis (or a psychotic disorder)
If you have any of the conditions above, avoid Mucuna pruriens supplements unless recommended by a doctor.
The following drug interactions are possible, based on the information about L-dopa [R]:
Some antidepressants and anti-Parkinson’s drugs (Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors or MAOI) – people taking these drugs should avoid Mucuna pruriens supplements. The use of both may dangerously increase dopamine levels and cause very high blood pressure.
Other medications for depression (tricyclic antidepressants)
Some antipsychotics (D2 antagonists) can reduce the effects of Mucuna
Medications used during surgery (Anesthesia)
