Mucuna herb replaces cigarette cravings and helps kick the cigarette habit

Posted September 20, 2012

Mucuna, also known as Velvet Bean, is capturing the interest of thousands of smokers who have the desire and the will to quit cigarettes, but can’t handle the first couple of weeks of rollercoaster-like mood swings and basic withdrawal symptoms. The L-Dopa content of the unprocessed Mucuna bean powder is so powerful that doctors are also using it help Parkinson’s patients restore mental clarity, and as a mood elevator. A new study reveals Mucuna just might be that “missing rung” in the ladder that leads to great health for thousands more soon-to-be ex-smokers.
