UK Maca SuperfoodsOrganic mucuna powder is a nutrient-rich tonic that has been commonly used in the Indian Ayurvedic tradition for over 2,000 years as an aphrodisiac and to support proper function of the reproductive system. It has also traditionally been used when treating neurological disorders.

Organic mucuna powder is a natural source of L-DOPA and 5-HTP, both of which could act as a precursor to dopamine and serotonin production within the body. Dopamine and serotonin are the neurotransmitters responsible for reward-motivated behaviour and mood respectively (serotonin is often known as ‘the happy hormone’). As such, mucuna’s possible benefits include mood improvement, stress relief, an increase in energy levels, a boost of libido and motor skill and nervous system support.

Other superfoods that help to boost mood and mental wellbeing are gotu kola, ashwagandha,  brahmi and lecithin.
