Mucuna Pruriens Recipes for Mood Enhancement and Relaxation
The recipe below (without Super Sports) is wonderful for a notably relaxing, mood-enhancing drink in the evening.
I was reading about Phospholipid Exchange (Click Here for access to special pricing) being a great product to get other compounds INTO the cells of the body. (You may not realize this, but not every herb, food or nutrient gets into the cells. In the case of a toxic compound, the protective cell wall is a good thing. It keeps toxins out of the interior of the cells. But it can increase benefits to get therapeutic nutrients THROUGH the cell membrane and into the cell).
I thought, 'What if I add some Phospholipid Exchange to my Mucuna drink? Would it enhance the subtle effects I feel, and the perceived benefits?'
The resulting experience (story coming soon) proved my hypothesis to be true.
Here is my 'Mucuna Pruriens Recipe for Mood Enhancement':
NOTE: For a first dose, be VERY conservative; after a week or so, you can try a stronger brew.
1 cup water
Ginger: fresh peeled root grated - a small or large amount according to your taste
Instructions: bring 2/3 of the cup of water to a low simmer then immediately turn off heat. Grate peeled Ginger root directly into the hot water with a fine grater.
Let the tea steep, then strain and add remaining water to cool it so it is quite warm, almost hot. Add the stevia, Mucuna Pruriens powder and Phospholipid Exchange and stir quite thoroughly. Drink immediately.
My Personal Mucuna Recipe for Evening Relaxation: These are the amounts I presently use for best effect. YOU should work up gradually!
Remember - each individual can have a different response to the same stimulus. If you find larger amounts too stimulating, lower the dose to provide a subtle glow rather than being TOO enlivening!
NOTE: Do NOT use the quantities shown below until you have a good feel for how your body responds to smaller amounts!
A few oz cold water to make tea very warm rather than hot.
NOTE: Phospholipid Exchange is sensitive to hot, so let tea cool or add a little cold water so tea is cool enough to keep your finger immersed. THEN add the Phospholipid Exchange and stir thoroughly for best taste and results.
Important Update: Mucuna Pruriens is No Longer My Top Pick for Dopamine Optimization!
NOTE: Regretfully, it has been two years since I have been able to obtain a Mucuna Pruriens powder as excellent as that which inspired this article.
I personally trialled product from several of the top companies, giving each a good few months worth of use. Sadly, none measured up.
Because I unequivocally refuse to have any product up on my site that does not meet my standards of excellence, Mucuna Pruriens powder is no longer among the products I would recommend to you.
HOWEVER - take heart - there are some very effective ways to optimize Dopamine!
