How Kapikacchu Seed Powder Works

Kapikacchu (Mucuna pruriens) is a nutritive tonic commonly used in Ayurveda to support normal reproductive system function. In men, kapikacchu supports normal potency, stamina, and control. In women it supports normal libido and fertility. Kapikacchu also supports normal nervous system function and normal relaxation. It is also a natural source of levadopa (L-dopa) which is an essential precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine.

Kapikacchu Seed Powder FAQs

How much kapikacchu is recommended to take each day?

Our general suggestion is to take anywhere from ¼ to 1 teaspoon per day, and you can use this range in all of the following suggestions. There is a broad range because each situation is different and each person may need more or less of an herb to bring balance. Try starting with a lower amount and build over time until you reach your desired amount.

How do I use kapikacchu to support my overall reproductive system?

Kapikacchu can be used on its own by adding up to one teaspoon of the powder in to warm water. Alternatively, warm milk can be used in place of water as milk is also a good vehicle for taking kapikacchu. Bring the milk and kapikacchu powder to boiling point, then remove from heat and let cool to a comfortable temperature before drinking. This can be taken in the morning and the evening.

What herbs can I include with kapikacchu to support my reproductive system?

Kapikacchu is often used in combination with amalaki, ashwagandha, shatavari, vidari kanda, and gokshura for added reproductive support.

How do I use kapikacchu to support normal libido and stamina?

Use the same suggestions given for supporting your reproductive system (questions 2 and 3) as they will also support normal libido and sexual stamina. If you would like to make your own powdered formula, use equal parts of kapikacchu, amalaki, ashwagandha, shatavari, and gokshura, add to warm milk or ghee, and take in the morning and evening. In Ayurveda, both milk and ghee are considered to be natural aphrodisiacs, which further supports your intention.

How do I use kapikacchu to help manage stress?

Kapikacchu powder can be added to warm water or warm milk, and you can enjoy this at any time in the day or evening. Stress Ease is another option: this formula combines kapikacchu with ashwagandha, shatavari, brahmi/gotu kola, and guduchi (among other herbs).

Why is kapikacchu such a great herb for supporting my nervous system?

Kapikacchu is a nervine and a tonic, and both qualities support normal nervous system function. Kapikacchu is a natural source of levodopa, or L-dopa, which is a precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. This is a technical way to say that it can help you feel calm and relaxed.

How do I use kapikacchu to support my nervous system?

Add the powder to a cup of warm milk and a little honey; the combination with milk and honey will enhance kapikacchu’s restorative qualities. You can use ghee as an alternative to milk if you desire. Ghee will also support kapikacchu’s restorative qualities. Take it at night to fully experience the herb’s effects.

How do I use kapikacchu to help balance my vata?

Making a nourishing, warming tea is a great option: add the powder to warm milk or water and drink it at any time that works for you. You can also take Healthy Vata; as the name implies, this formula was created to bring balance to vata. It harnesses the energy of kapikacchu and enhances its ability to support vata by combining it with many other herbs that can address vata imbalances.

Why are many of the suggested ways to use kapikacchu the exact same while the reason for taking it can be entirely different?

Kapikacchu works in different systems within the body, especially the nervous and reproductive systems, and it has different actions that helps the body regain balance in these different systems – it is a nervine, tonic, and aphrodisiac, to name a few. You can use the same mode of intake for different situations (for example, add it to warm water or warm milk), and kapikacchu will go where it is needed in your body.

Are mucuna and kapikacchu the same herb?

Yes! Kapikacchu is the Sanskrit name, while “mucuna” is part of kapikacchu’s botanical name (Mucuna pruriens). Banyan uses both: we sell our bulk powder under the name kapikacchu while we sell our liquid extract as mucuna. Though we use different names, it is the same herb.

How many milligrams are in a teaspoon of kapikacchu?

There are approximately 3500mg of kapikacchu in one teaspoon.

What is levodopa, or L-dopa, and how is it related to kapikacchu?

Levodopa, commonly called L-dopa, is an amino acid that is naturally found in kapikacchu. L-dopa is a precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine.

How much levodopa is in your kapikacchu?

The concentration of Levodopa in our kapikacchu is approximately 4-5 percent. Concentrations can vary from season to season depending on environmental conditions.

Where does your kapikacchu come from?

Our kapikacchu is grown and harvested in Karnataka, India. This creeping vine can be found all over India, and it especially loves tropical regions, making Karnataka an ideal environment.
