Description

Mucuna is a shrub traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine. The powder we have is made from ground seeds. Due to its potency, it is important to use mucuna sparingly. If you intend to take more than a teaspoon in a day, please consult a registered healthcare practitioner first. As mucuna has been shown to lower blood sugar, it should be avoided by diabetics. It is also not recommended for pregnant women as it may act as a uterine stimulant.


Mucuna is a natural plant food, one that you can use as a culinary ingredient in a variety of ways, so that you can enjoy the health benefits that Mucuna offers. This Mucuna is from an excellent trusted source and has approx. 3% to 4% L-Dopa.


At Raw Living, we have been using Mucuna in this way for many years and we are passionate about bringing this new class of foods to you, and showing you how you can introduce them into your kitchen. When we consume these foods on a regular basis, we learn to be more aware of our body's needs, and more conscious that the very best way of keeping healthy is to watch what we eat. On this site and in Kate's books, we offer information on the most easy and accessible ways to take in these foods that can help keep us balanced and well.


Many of these foods are relatively new to us in the West, and to the majority of people they are still unheard of. In actual fact, they have been used in the countries they originate from for hundreds and often thousands of years, and are still in common use today. It is our wish to introduce to you a whole world of plants that feed the body in the truest sense. It is only in recent times that we consume food that does not have the minerals and nutritional content that nature intended. On our site, you can find many ways to add these foods into existing recipes, and also find many more exciting new recipes, making your entire culinary experience so much more interesting.

Further Information

Mucuna, or Kapikachu, is a shrub traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine. The powder we have is made from ground seeds. Mucuna is known for its anti-depressant and aphrodisiacal properties. It particularly excels as a mood booster. It is an excellent source of naturally occurring 5Htp, DMT, and boosts dopamine in the brain. In India, it is one of the most popular herbal medicines. It is renowned for its use in treatments for Parkinson's Disease.

Due to its potency, it is important to use mucuna sparingly. If you intend to take more than a teaspoon in a day, please consult a registered healthcare practitioner first. As mucuna has been shown to lower blood sugar, it should be avoided by diabetics. It is also not recommended for pregnant women as it may act as a uterine stimulant.

We love to use mucuna in cakes, chocolates and milks. Here is a recipe for a delicious blackcurrant hemp milk with mucuna in.
