Mucuna is my favorite herb because it is one of the most powerful and useful herbs known. Mucuna Pruriens is an herb that contains L-Dopa, an amino acid that is often helps with neurological issues. L-Dopa helps produce dopamine in the brain, which is a mood elevator and where we get the word ‘dope’ from. More importantly, L-Dopa produces Human Growth Hormone (HGH) in the brain. HGH is the number one thing we require if we expect to remain young and vibrant, therefore it becomes increasingly important as we age. HGH is primarily produced by the pituitary gland in the brain, however, by 50 years of age the average person has stopped producing it. Angstrom Indium is useful for the pineal gland, which is itself the key to longevity. Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF or Chlorella Extract) contains high amounts of nucleic acids that are the blue prints to the cells. Without them, the cell cannot replicate itself properly and evermore diminished copies of our cells are produced.
Mucuna also stimulates the production of melatonin and serotonin which are both necessary for sleep regulation. These brain chemicals are also produced in the pineal gland. As we age, they are produced less and less, which is why some elderly people get up quite early in the morning and can’t go back to sleep. Brain chemicals are the key to a good night’s sleep and the keys to a youthful life at any age. I take one tablespoon of Mucuna in evening just before I go to bed because that is when the body produces HGH and other brain chemicals such as melatonin.
My hair started turning back to black about one month after I started taking it. Angstrom Copper helps with gray hair reversal as well.
