How Mucuna Pruriens Is Useful?
Mucuna Pruriens is a well-known Ayurvedic herb. Nutritional analysis reveals that it contains crude lipid (6 -7 %), crude protein (20-29%), total dietary fiber (8-10%), carbohydrates (50-60%) and ash (3%). The seed includes many other compounds including alkaloids. Doctors and scientists in the Western countries are taking a serious look at the possible benefits of the herb in various conditions like fertility, sexual enhancement and Parkinson’s disease. Studies conducted on rats revealed that the herbal supplement has an impact on the dopamine content of the brain (in the cortex region), which helps to improve sexuality and also reduces risk of damage to the sperm from oxidative stress. In Ayurveda, the powder of the seed is recommended for improving the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
The sexual urge & interest is enhanced by a natural neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Mucuna pruriens contains a substance called L-Dopa, which is the antecedent to dopamine. Users of Mucuna Pruriens have noticed improvement in sexual interest within days of using this herb. A study was conducted to investigate the consequences of the extract on the potency, libido and general mating behavior of male Wister albino-rats. The effects were compared with sildenafil citrate, a standard reference drug.
The rats were given PO with extract or saline or standard drug (one time a day) for 45 days. It was noticed that the extract increased significantly the ejaculation latency, intromission frequency and mounting frequency and decreased inter-intromission interval, post-ejaculatory interval, intromission latency and mounting latency. The results showed that Mucuna Pruriens seed extract produced a sustained and significant increase in the sexual-activity of the male rats. The significant aphrodisiac activity of the herbal extract vindicates the role of the herb in improving sexual function.
The effects of Mucuna Pruriens on Parkinson’s disease
Ayurvedic physicians have been using the powdered seed of Mucuna Pruriens since ancient times for improving the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Research has proved that the powder of this herb has anti-Parkinson as well as neroprotective effects in animals. In one of the studies, two different dosage of the herb mucuna pruriens protected genomic DNA and plasmid DNA against levodopa & divalent copper-induced DNA strand-scission.
A pharmacological and double-blind clinical study was conducted in 2004 by ‘Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry’. Eight patients with Parkinson’s disease were given single doses of L-dopa/carbidopa (200/50 mg) and Mucuna Pruriens (15-30 mg) preparation in a random order at weekly-intervals. The preparation of mucuna led to a significantly faster inception of effect as compared to L-dopa/carbidopa and reflected shorter latencies to max out L-dopa plasma concentrations. There were no significant differences in tolerability and dyskinesias. This study suggests that the natural L-dopa may have considerable advantages over the traditional L-dopa formulation in the long-term management of the disease.
