In Ayurvedic medicine, Kapikacchu (also known as mucuna powder) is used to support the brain and nervous systems as a means of aiding the body cope with stress. 

Product Notes:

Formally known as Mucuna pruriens, and also referred to as the velvet bean or cowhage, Mucuna is a tropical vine that produces pods containing numerous seeds. These precious seeds are an excellent source of the amino acid levodopa (L-dopa), which also functions as the precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine in our brains. Low dopamine levels can affect your mood, alertness, sleep, memory, as well as sexual and muscle functions. Therefore, by consuming foods that are high in L-dopa, such as Mucuna / Kapikacchu powder, you may be able to enhance your body's natural dopamine production.

Kapikacchu is also sometimes spelled as 'Kapikachhu'. Latest packaging may look slightly different than shown.
