Description

Mucuna Pruriens (molted strain)
Also known as: Velvet Bean, Cowitch, Nescafé

Here is a tropical climber that has both beautiful flowers and to many uses to list here.
The plant is an annual and is indigenous to tropical regions with long vines that can reach over 15 m in length. The purple and white flowers hang in long racemes. This strain of Mucuna Pruriens that we offer here has molted colored to all white beans. It appears to have been cultivated to the point of producing very little to no orange fuzzy hairs on the pods and foliage that would normally be a stinging itchy skin irritant. This molted strain has the same exact flowers as the Mucuna Pruriens (white strain) which we also offer in small seed packs.

The seeds are high in L-dopa protein, carbohydrates, lipids, fiber, and minerals to name a few. In Central America, velvet beans have been roasted and ground to make a coffee substitute for decades, it is also cooked as a vegetable. In many parts of the world, it is used as an important forage, fallow and green manure crop. Because it is a Legume, it fixes nitrogen and fertilizes degraded soil as well. It is gaining in popularity in the sports nutrition industry for its ability to increase testosterone and stimulate growth hormone. There is a long history of traditional use in Brazil and India as an aphrodisiac and is considered a diuretic, nerve tonic, menstrual promoter, uterine stimulant, and blood purifier.

Other treatments it has been used for are as follows: Parkinson's disease, edema, impotence, intestinal gas, worms, dysentery, diarrhea, snakebites, sexual debility, cough, tuberculosis, rheumatic disorders, muscular pain, gout, menstrual disorders, diabetes, and cancer.

* It is a powerful plant with many biological actions that should be respected. In other words. . . the belief system of some people taking herbal supplements of: "if some is good, more is better," does not apply with velvet bean. Research is highly recommended.

**This molted strain of M. Pruriens bean is not to be confused with the solid black bean that is said to have a lower content of L-dopa and lower germination rate. Black beans tend to also rot within the pod, ultimately producing less of a crop.
