Product(s) Used in: Mood IQ and Sleep IQ

Mucuna pruriens is a potent ingredient that promotes elevated mood and libido enhancement (male and female) and one of the best superfoods available. This potent ingredient can have beneficial effects on the body’s mental well-being, energy levels, ability to relax and overall weight management.

Lifestyle’s today can often get in the way of getting a full night of sleep. Running on Coffee driven by fumes only adds to the problem. Sleeping pills and other pharmaceuticals are more popular than ever, but are they really the best solution in this case?

Mucuna pruriens is a long known tonifying ingredient, which is known to balance and mood. Often known as “velvet bean” is known to support overall wellness, and to benefit the body’s nervous and endocrine systems. Both past and modern research, share its multi-functioning in the management of Parkinson’s, enhancing dopamine, addiction issues, promoting fertility in both genders, and as a nootropic to sharpen cognition.

Before modern medicine, individuals relied on nature to support our ailments and health needs. A natural option is needed now more than ever in this area.

What is Mucuna Pruriens?

Mucuna Pruriens is a climbing vine, often know as Velvet Bean. These beans are covered with tiny hairs that can sting upon contact or cause itching.

These are very similar to coffee beans as they contain many items that affect our brain. These beans have been used for thousands of years for mood and a sexual tonic for both female and male as a sexual enhancer.

Mucuna is the ideal natural food source for the neurotransmitter pre-cursor L-Dopa. This is the immediate precursor to dopamine within our brain. This ingredient also contains small amounts of serotonin and tryptophan, making it a potent mood regulator.

L-Dopa has been looked at in studies for Parkinson’s, which progressively degrades dopamine and the brain’s receptors. Today, synthetic L-Dopa is widely available on the supplement market; however, its effects are potent and should be researched. This shows that nature offers natural health solutions all can benefit from.

Mucuna primarily has benefits on the brain as it contains many precursors to different neurotransmitters. Monitoring and regulating neurotransmitters can have many beneficial effects such as increased ability to relax, heightened mood and energy levels. Mucuna enhances the amount of the neurotransmitters called catecholamines in the body. Why is this important?

What is a catecholamine?

Dopamine is the most “popular” catecholamine and is essential for many cognitive items such as attention, desire, motivation, mood, memory and much more.

When you consume a cup of coffee and experience a burst of energy and wellbeing, it is dopamine that is at play. Caffeine is a stimulant that releases catecholamines in the brain. Dopamine is the catecholamine primarily responsible for the motivation to get stuff done, which is one reason why coffee has become such a popular beverage for productivity. The other catecholamines are norepinephrine and epinephrine, which both have potent effects on cognition as well as being the primary drivers of the fight or flight response.

The fight or flight response is the body’s emergency system that triggers as soon as you are in a dangerous or demanding situation, releasing catecholamine’s to supercharge your nervous system into action.

Catecholamines are a great short-term, but long-term excess catecholamine’s from stimulants such as coffee can eventually burn out your system. This will gradually cause your natural dopamine production to lower requiring more and more stimulants to keep you going. This is why balance is key to coffee and this ingredient.

This is why we include a low dosage of Mucuna in our Sleep IQ formula- to reset the body’s mood and overall well-being.


Signs of low dopamine

Many could argue that the effects of impaired dopamine production or low dopamine are the complete opposite of all the positive effects dopamine have.

Here are some of the most common low dopamine items people experience: Lack of drive, a difficulty with focus, anxiety, apathy, depression, low energy, and low sex drive.

Mucuna is the best alternative source of L-Dopa which will rebuild your dopamine reserves, not release it like many stimulants such as coffee can. This boost in your dopamine reserves makes it extremely useful for symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, but can also make it easier for us healthy people to let go of sugar, nicotine and caffeine addictions.

Mood IQ supports a feeling of relaxation, focus and enhances male and female libido. The key ingredient, mucuna pruriens, also known as L-Dopa, in this formula stabilizes and balances mood by promoting healthy dopamine levels and neurotransmission. It also promotes proper blood flow. *
