Mucuna Pruriens by Sun Potion
The very first Sun Potion products I bought were Mucuna Pruriens and Tocos at the recommendation of owner, Scott Linde himself during a chance meeting that would ultimately spark the idea for aMYLK. I'll tell the rest of that story another day, but Mucuna Pruriens was (for me) everything that Scott said it would be: calming, mood elevating, soothing to the nervous system and brain function enhancing.
Mucuna's Pruriens’ principle ingredient is L-Dopa, a naturally occurring amino acid which transforms into Dopamine in the Brain. Sun Potion’s extract powder is organically grown in India and processed at a standardized 15% level of L-Dopa. It has a smoky caramel flavor and is delicious paired with He Shou Wu and hot water for a coffee like beverage (minus the jitters) and in smoothies and elixirs with cacao. I try to incorporate Mucuna Puriens into my diet at least 20 out of 30 days for stress management and supporting my overall well being.*
