What is Dopamine and Why is it Important?
Dopamine has an extensive list of functions, affecting movement, emotions, the experience of pleasure, memory, and much, much more.
Insufficient levels of dopamine can lead to a wide range of serious symptoms, including:
- Inability to focus;
- Loss of motor control;
- Reduced sex drive;
- Cravings or addictions;
- Lack of motivation;
- Loss of pleasure or satisfaction.
People with low dopamine levels may experience feelings of depression, boredom, or apathy. They may lack the energy and motivation to carry out ordinary tasks, and they may have trouble focusing or making decisions. Stress, tension, and mental dysfunction are inevitable with low levels of dopamine, and many people may experience these symptoms without the knowledge that they can be counteracted.
Mucunas Secret Weapon: L-Dopa
Mucuna with its many benefits raises the bar above many herbs due to its high levels of L-Dopa. L-Dopa is an amino acid that converts into dopamine. This means that by ingesting mucuna, you can actually raise the levels of dopamine in your body, and thus, stimulate your pituitary gland to produce the human growth hormone and promote longevity. These hormones tend to decrease overtime, as with your thymus gland, but with raised dopamine levels, you could not only inhibit these constrictions, but also quite possibly reverse them. This is a remarkable link to the anti-aging attributes of mucuna.
Mucuna is used as a powerful neuro-protectant, used vastly to naturally treat conditions that are stemmed from the brain and nervous system, one of the biggest being Parkinsons disease. Because of the high amounts of L-Dopa, any deficiencies of dopamine and serotonin could benefit from a mucuna supplement, which would include recovering drug or alcohol addicts and those who also suffer from depression. In addition to L-DOPA, mucuna contains serotonin (5-HT), 5-HTP, nicotine, N,N-DMT (DMT), bufotenine, and 5-MeO-DMT. With all of this yummy brain food, mucuna is also beneficial for improving sleep, calming the nerves, reducing stress, increasing focus, and greatly improving moods and balancing emotions.
