Kapikachhu Benefits


All Around Aphrodisiac

Mucuna pruriens is a tropical legume also known as Kapikachhu, velvet bean, cowitch, and cowhage. It is a constituent of more than 200 indigenous herbal formulations. And it has been used since ancient times in Ayurvedic medicine, most commonly as a Parkinson’s disease treatment and for overall brain health.

Kapikachhu for Balanced Dopamine Production

Within every herbal remedy lies active ingredients that help contribute to its medicinal value. In Mucuna pruriens, the primary compound is known as levodopa, or L-dopa, a precursor to dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline. Dopamine is often associated with pleasure, yet it plays a critical role in muscle control. It is responsible for many functions including movement, memory, pleasurable reward, behavior and cognition, attention, sleep, mood, and learning. Examples of abnormal levels of dopamine production can be seen in Parkinson's disease and drug addiction.

Kapikachhu for Natural Brain Health & Stress Relief

Women's Formula from Baseline Nutritionals

Mucuna pruriens offers a natural way to replenish your supply of L-dopa and, as a result, helps promote brain health. In addition to brain health, this herb may also help with stress relief. One study of 120 men on psychological stress showed that supplementation with Mucuna pruriens significantly eased stress within the subjects.

Kapikachhu for Reproductive System Health

In addition to brain health, it offers several reproductive system benefits as well. For instance, it has been used to help increase libido, sperm count in men, and ovulation in women. It also helps increase blood circulation to the genitals and strengthens and tones the sexual glands.

Kapikachhu Natural Testosterone Benefits

As you get older, testosterone starts playing a more important role in your health. Mucuna extract can help improve natural testosterone balance by releasing bound up testosterone and increasing the level of bio-available testosterone. As a side benefit, it can also help reduce fat and improve muscle tone. (By supporting healthy testosterone levels, Mucuna pruriens supports anabolic metabolism, which increases your tendency to burn fat and to build muscle.)

Kapikachhu for Overall Health Benefits

And that's not all, research shows Mucuna extract is beneficial for reducing cholesterol, lowering blood sugar levels, and enhancing mental alertness--all without stimulating the central nervous system. It also acts as a restorative nutrient for the nervous system and helps decreases symptoms of stress and anxiety by calming nerves. Other benefits include reducing inflammation and increasing overall stamina.

How to Take Kapikachhu

You can find Mucuna pruriens in many herbal formulas (including Jon Barron’s Women’s Formula) as well as in powder, tablet, or capsule form.

I have it in my head and a little in my torso. I do not want to even leave the house. I just bought this and haven't tried it yet. I am currently trying cannabis oil for about 2 weeks and have not felt any different. Also I am on baicalin, i also take l-theanine and i take extra magnesium. Can you please tell me if I can take this with what Im already taken plus if it works for me can I take it long term?

    Marie, sorry to hear of your condition. I realize a year has passed ... perhaps in this time you have found something that helps.

    I just wanted to comment that some years ago I was bitten by a dog. Without thinking twice, I followed "medical protocol" and went for a tetanus shot. I subsequently acquired an essential tremor.

    In comparison to what you described, my condition is mild.
    Only a bit of a shake in my neck when tired or when sitting with poor posture, nothing else.

    In my mind, some crap from this shot, perhaps (or even likely) mercury (easily crosses the blood brain barrier) lodged itself and this is the result.

    I just wanted to comment ... If you believe your tremors could be vaccine related, you might consult a "natural healing" expert who has cleansed metals (or whatever you think it might be) from brains.

    I wish the best for you,
