Kapikachu/Mucuna Pruriens Pure Herbal Powder Direct from INDIA!!


L-Dopa is an amino acid that converts into dopamine. Dopamine is an essential component of our body and it’s required for proper functioning of the brain.  Research discovered the body converts the amino acid tyrosine into L-dopa; L-dopa is then converted into dopamine. Without the neurotransmitter dopamine to serve a damping effect on neural transmissions, muscles become tense and tremble.

Benefits of Mucuna Pruriens L-Dopa :














Mucuna Pruriens and Human Growth Hormone
L- Dopa contains natural secretagogues which may support the body’s ability to stimulate the natural release of growth hormone. The blood carries the dopamine into the brain, where it naturally increases HGH production from the pituitary gland. The increased dopamine levels also optimize the production of other hormones, including testosterone, leading to increased sex drive and improved sexual performance for both men and women,  beneficial in stimulating muscle growth, as well as burning fat from fat cells.

Mucuna Pruriens and Parkinson’s Disease
The seed powder of Mucuna pruriens has long been used in traditional Ayurvedic Indian medicine for diseases including parkinson. L-Dopa significantly affects dopamine metabolism in the striatonigral tract. This ability helps improve Parkinsonian symptoms in humans. The seeds of Mucuna pruriens accumulate 0.2% – 2% L-dopa in their dry weight.

Mucuna Pruriens Aphrodisiac Effects
Mucuna pruriens can improve sexual behavior, libido, and performance. In an aphrodisiac study done at College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Manipal, Mucuna Pruriens when administered in a dose of 75 mg/kg body weight daily, increased the sexual activity of male albino rats considerably by stimulating testosterone level. A ten fold increase in the mounting frequency was observed. The research shows that sexually active animals had increased sexual desire and improved sexual performance after 21 to 28 days. However, impotent animals did not derived any benefits.

Another research shows that Mucuna Pruriens heightened arousal and increased sexual activity to a moderate extent but also sustains it for a longer time as indicated by the increase in below Ejaculation Latency and decrease in Post Ejaculatory Interval. Mucuna Prueins is shown to possess central depressant activity. The delay in ejaculation could be due to toning down of hypersensitity of genitals and hyperexcitation of the regulatory centers. This study show that Mucuna Pruriens can be used to improve libido and delay premature ejaculation.

Mucuna Increase Sperm Count
The total alkaloids from Mucuna Pruriens comprise of five alkaloids (purienine and purienidine), are found to stimulate the secretion of testosterone to ensure greater availibility to gonads. These leads to increase sperm count and increase testes size.Spermatogenesis is governed by testosterone. The alkaloids in Mucuna increase testosterone level in seminiferous tubules either by action on pituitary function or on leydig’s cells that store testosterone.

Many people are familiar with Mucuna Pruriens because of it’s ability to increase Libido and improve Sexual Performance, but there are many other benefits. Mucuna Pruriens Extract has also been shown to SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE THE BODY’S NATURAL PRODUCTION OF HGH (HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE).HGH is secreted by our pituitary gland, and the Mucuna Pruriens Extract is able to naturally stimulate the pituitary gland. The stimulation of the gland results in an increase of HGH production. This is very important because INCREASING OUR NATURAL HGH PRODUCTION WILL PROVIDE A LARGE NUMBER OF HEALTH BENEFITS FOR BOTH MEN & WOMEN.
