Mucuna pruriens

The Velvet Bean of Seduction

Mucuna, or what is known traditionally as Kapikacchu is a tropical bean that has a long history of medicinal use. Due to its naturally high L-Dopa content, the bean has been investigated as a more affordable natural alternative for Parkinson's disease in India. Other places in Asia use it as a natural ingredient to combat snake venom. As Dopamine is the pleasure-seeking neurotransmitter, traditional herbalists in Nigeria call the plant "The Devil's Bean" and use it for the purposes of sexual enhancement.
