Mucuna Bean, aka Velvet Bean, is a medicinal botanical that grows in tropic regions. Scientific evidence shows that it supports the re-uptake of dopamine in the serotonin receptors located in the brain due to the presence of a component called L-Dopa. Because of this, it can increase dopamine levels in the body, supporting ease, relaxation and centeredness while also reducing symptoms of stress and anxiety.
