My favorite herb of all time is Mucuna pruriens. This is because it has L-Dopa, an amino acid that creates several brain chemicals that essential for sleep patterns, mood enhancement and longevity.
Mucuna is 15% extracted or concentrated L-Dopa is the best level concentration.
Mucuna pruriens is an Ayravedic herb from India. The tan or brown Mucuna, not the white Mucuna which comes from India.
Mucuna is also an aphrodisiac, a free radical scavenger and helps reduce diabetes.
L-Dopa is a precursor to dopamine, which is produced in the brain and is a Mood Enhancer. L-Dopa aides with neurological activity. Without dopamine our muscles become tense and tremble. Parkinson’s patients are given synthetic L-Dopa which doesn’t work like the extract L-Dopa from Mucuna.
L-Dopa is a precursor to Melatonin produced by the pineal gland – youth and sleep regulation. It regulates our biological clock.
L-Dopa is a precursor to Serotonin which is produced by the pineal gland – sleep rest regulation, mood enhancer, enhances concentration, and fights depression.
L-Dopa is a precursor to HGH – human growth hormone – in the pituitary gland when we sleep or after exercise. Another fountain of youth, along with nucleic acids and ionized water because of its antioxidant qualities.
We stop producing HGH by age 40, by age 60 there is nothing. So our biological life grinds to a halt. Our body is not being rejuvenated.
We can always rejuvenate ourselves, our bodies, and that is with nucleic acids (found in CGF, Chlorella Extract), electrons, negative ORP (Alkaline Ionized Water), a diet of raw foods and L-Dopa for the production of HGH.
