– Anti-Parkinson’s activity
The clinical syndrome of parkinsonism was identified in ancient India, even before the time of Christ, and was methodically treated. In the classical 15th-century text Bhasava Rajyam the term “kampavata” was used as an Ayurvedic analogue of Parkinson’s disease. In this text it is mentioned that parkinsonism (kampavata) was treated by administering the powdered seeds of Mucuna pruriens (containing natural L-DOPA).
The most current studies, such as those of Hussian and Manyam, indicate that for the dose used, Mucuna pruriens shows twice the anti-parkinsonian activity of synthetic L-DOPA.
In a clinical study, Nagashayana et al revealed the contribution of L-DOPA in the recovery of Parkinson’s disease followed by Ayurveda medication.
Katzenschlager et al revealed that 30 grams of Mucuna seed powder preparation has considerably faster action in treating patients with Parkinson’s disease than conventional standard drugs, namely levodopa or carbidopa, and suggested that the natural source of L-DOPA could have advantages over conventional drugs in the long-term management of Parkinson’s disease.
– Hypoglycemic activity
Using a combination of chromatographic and NMR techniques, the presence of D-chiro-inositol and its two galacto derivatives of antiglycemic effect was demonstrated in the seeds of Mucuna pruriens.
The hypoglycemic effect of the aqueous extract of the seeds of Mucuna pruriens was investigated under normal conditions of glucose loading
– Aphrodisiac activity
Shukla and Mahdi demonstrated that oral administration of 5 grams of Mucuna seed powder once daily to men with decreased sperm count and motility improved psychological stress and peroxide levels in seminal plasma fluid, in addition to improve sperm count and motility. The study also concluded that Mucuna pruriens not only reactivates the antioxidant defense mechanism, but also aids in stress management and improves semen quality.
