Mucuna pruriens, commonly known as velvet bean or cow itch, is a plant indigenous to India, and has been used in Ayurveda for many different conditions. The ayurvedic names are Kaunch, Atmagupta, or Kapikacchu. Scientists and doctors in the west are now beginning to take a serious look at the potential benefits of this potent herb in a number of medical and psychological conditions.
The herb contains L-DOPA which is a neurotransmitter, and a precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. The L-DOPA content increases when used as an extract. L-DOPA, or levodopa converts into dopamine, an important brain chemical involved in mood, sexuality, and movement. As such, M. pruriens seeds have also been found to have antidepressant properties. It has long been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for diseases including management and treatment of Parkinson's disease. Recognized as an aphrodisiac in Ayurveda, mucuna pruriens has been shown to maintain and normalize testosterone levels, which may lead to deposition of protein in the muscles and help increase muscle mass and strength.
The plant and its extracts have been long used in tribal communities as a toxin antagonist for various snakebites.
Tattva's Herbs’ natural supplements combine the wisdom of Mother Nature with the very latest technology known as supercritical extraction. This state of the art technology delivers a very pure extract that is both full spectrum and extremely concentrated at the same time. It is so pure that you can actually smell the qualities of the original herb in the extract, and you are greeted with this aroma when you open a bottle. It is sweet and powerful.
There is simply no other extraction method so effective that you can actually smell the purity, fragrance and essence of the herb. This is a testimony to the great care that goes into the selection of the herbs and the supercritical extraction process itself. To give you an idea of the potency and concentration of the extract, we can often use as much as 200 to 250 pounds of fresh herbs to produce just one pound of supercritical extract. All of the herbs are grown on organic farms and selected with the greatest of care. The supercritical process produces an exceptionally broad representation of the herbs' active constituents, which oftentimes traditional methods of extraction cannot even begin to extract. Furthermore, the supercritical process does not use any chemical solvents at all. Instead, it utilizes safe and environmentally friendly carbon dioxide, the same carbon dioxide that is found in your sparkling water.
Finally, the supercritical extract, post-supercritical extract (PSE) (a water-soluble extract), and the raw whole herb are combined to create our herbal formula. The finished product is superior in terms of both freshness and breadth of active constituents. It delivers the full spectrum of the herbs with a potency that cannot be surpassed. In addition, all of the herbs are independently tested for heavy metals and other contaminates. The result is an exquisite formula that delivers simplicity, purity and incredible potency all at once.
Contraindications, Toxicity, Cautions and Safety: Do not use when congested. Adverse effects were mild and were mainly gastro-intestinal in nature. No adverse effects were seen in clinical laboratory reports (lbid, 1995).
