Mucuna Pruriens, also known as Velvet Bean, is a bean that is grown on a climbing shrub and grows white, lavender, or purple flowers and can be very itchy when touched due to serotonin on the surface of the tree. It is found in India, the Caribbean or Africa. The bean contains a good source of L-DOPA and it also possesses antioxidant content. L-DOPA is a precursor to neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), and epinephrine (adrenaline) collectively known as catecholamines. L-DOPA can cross the blood-brain barrier and it can improve dopamine concentrations.
