Mucuna Pruriens is a plant from India, the Caribbean or Africa. It is a climbing shrub that has the ability to grow white, lavender, or purple flowers and causes itching upon physical contact with the outer hairs and skin. Like most herbal supplements, it possesses anti-oxidant content.

Mucuna Pruriens, or Velvet Bean, is a bean that grows from trees and is very itchy to touch due to serotonin on its surface. It is a good source of L-DOPA and contains some other molecules that may aid the benefits of L-DOPA. The other psychoactive in Mucuna is dosed too low to be relevant.

L-DOPA (L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine; INN levodopa; trade names Sinemet, Parcopa, Atamet, Stalevo, Madopar, Prolopa, etc.) is a naturally occurring dietary supplement and psychoactive drug found in certain kinds of food and herbs (e.g., Mucuna Pruriens, or velvet bean), and is synthesized from the amino acid L-tyrosine in the mammalian body and brain.

L-DOPA is the precursor to the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), and epinephrine (adrenaline) collectively known as catecholamines.

Aside from its natural and essential biological role, L-DOPA is also used in the clinical treatment of Parkinson’s disease and dopamine-responsive dystonia. When used in a pharmaceutical context, the INN designation ‘levodopa’ is normally used.
