Health benefits of Mucuna extract
Mucuna Extract for symptoms of Parkinson’s disease
In studies conducted on the effect of Mucuna, there has been a noted reduction in the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s Disease related to the L-DOPA content and theorized peripheral dopamine decarboxylase inhibitor. Mucuna is one of the naturally occurring and concentrated sources of L-Dopa, that is dopamine. In fact, Mucuna is so rich in the dopamine precursor L-Dopa that it is used as an alternative treatment for Parkinson’s disease. This is worthy of mention as a L-DOPA supplement in combination with others is the reference for reducing Parkinson’s symptoms.
Mucuna extract improves sperm quality and sexual health
There appears to be an increase in seminal quality and oxidative parameters following ingestion Mucuna extract for a sustainable period of time. This seems to point towards a possible ability to correcting the hypothalamic-pituitary-testes axis. In studies, there has been a substantial improvement in sperm mobility and sperm quality in men because of Mucuna extract supplementation. In a study on oral ingestion of Mucuna extract in infertile men for 3 months showed a general improvement in sperm count and motility. An increase in testosterone levels was also noticed. There was also a significant reduction in the level of psychological stress and serum cortisol levels which contributed to better sexual health.
Mucuna for strength, subjective well-being and stress
In studies on males that were chronically stressed, a long supplementation of Mucuna extract appears to be help in the reduction of cortisol concentrations. Coupled with an increase in dopamine, reduction in the level of psychological stress and an improvement in the sexual health showed men experiencing a better sense of wellbeing and general debility.
How to Take
Recommended dosage, active amounts, other details
Most studies conducted on Mucuna extract supplements suggest an optimum dosage of 500 mg of seed extract per dose. There is not enough clinical data available on the maximum amount of Mucuna extract that should be consumed in a day, however in our opinion the daily intake of Mucuna should not be more than 5000 mg per day.
