Now, dopamine is needed for your brain to work properly.
Stress, stimulants, and drug abuse can reduce dopamine levels.

- Mucuna can increase your desire for sex,

In infertile men, organic Mucuna extract was shown to increase androgen levels, luteinizing hormone, dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline while decreasing prolactin and follicle stimulation hormone levels. *
L-dopa has been shown to increase growth hormone for one to two hours after taking it.* The L-dopa in mucuna stays active longer in the blood than synthetic versions, likely due to its many other constituents.*

The cacao-mucuna-stimulant-to-anti-stimulant relationship is one of the oldest known, dating back thousands of years.
Historically, cacao shamans always had in their possession cacao and mucuna during their travels.”
