Mucuna pruriens, known in Ayurveda as kapikacchu, is widely used to support the reproductive and nervous systems. It helps to support the reproductive system by supporting proper hormone signaling and production in both men and women. This can result in improved libido, fertility and overall function of the reproductive organs.
It is most commonly known for its ability to support the nervous system as a natural source of levodopa (L-dopa), an essential precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. This helps to promote a state of relaxation and calm while helping to maintain healthy muscular movements, proper sensation, coordination and motor skills.
