(NaturalNews) 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. (http://www.secrets-of-longevity-in-humans.com/mucuna-pruriens.html) 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.
The Mucuna extract contains a significant amount of naturally occurring L-dopa, an amino acid which converts into dopamine. Most commonly sold in powder form, this "herbal" remedy can be found all over the internet, and the 60 percent concentration can be found in vegetarian capsules that are high quality.

This wondrous Ayervetic Indian herb is known by many names, including sea beans, buffalo beans, Dopabean, Pruriens, Cowitch, Kapikachu and Atmagupta. The main medicinal benefits come from the seeds, but the pod and the roots can also be used. The velvety beans are actually drift seeds, meaning they can float away on ocean currents and re-plant themselves all over the world.
Research shows L-Dopa provides a wide variety of health benefits. All non-smokers should peruse these benefits as well:
• Regeneration of organs (heart, kidneys, liver, lungs)
• Dramatically strengthen immune system
• Improved sleep
• Reduced body fat and cellulite
• Improved skin appearance
• Increased mood and sense of well being
• Increased bone density (very necessary after toxin overload from cigarettes)
The scam gets defeated
Marlboro is "Marlboro," the number one selling premium brand cigarette in the world, because of the highest potency rating of their "custom made" nicotine delivery device. Make no mistake about it. The other KINGS of the industry are all in on the evil trick also, including Winston, Lucky Strike, Kool, Parliament, Pall Mall, Camel, Newport, and of course, the Menthols. (http://www.the-top-tens.com/lists/top-ten-cigarette-brands.asp) The scam to hook smokers by using ammonia to strengthen the nicotine addiction WORKS, and the 4,000 plus chemicals in commercial cigarettes are no joke, leading the smoker right off the cliff, where they feel like their only way out of feeling awful is to light up. The U.S., Japan, and China alone make up over 75% of the world's smokers. (http://articles.chicagotribune.com)
Now, along comes Mucuna, the most essential element of the escape. This inexpensive natural herb is easily assimilated by the body and the effects show up within days. Mucuna's L-Dopa can improve circulation, energy, youthful skin, and general enthusiasm for life. What more could a smoker ask for, after just bombarding their body with pesticide, ammonia and bleach?
The most essential element of the escape
One all natural method to quitting cigarettes incorporates Mucuna into the nutritional "phase" of cessation, which, according to the program 14AndOut, is the third and final phase. (http://premium.naturalnews.tv/14AndOut__TV.htm) New research shows that smokers are using Mucuna to "replace and replenish" dopamine levels during the first few weeks of cessation which kills the urge to smoke, and in turns ends the habit in 14 days or fewer. The research shows that Mucuna works for quitting cold turkey and for weaning, but that best results come from weaning the smoker off nicotine over a 14 day period. This completely natural, legal, and results-proving substitute for nicotine is ending the cravings of ex-smokers so they never go "back to the well" to satisfy the old chemically-induced "nic fit."
Mucuna is the kryptonite of Big Tobacco's "super" scam. Once smokers understand the specific chemicals in commercial cigarettes which drive them down and essentially create the need for dopamine, they have completed phase I of 14AndOut. In phase II, the smoker learns how to substitute good behaviors for the previous health-damaging ones, such as breathing patterns and "hand to mouth" habits. Lastly, the program educates smokers about nutrition and how diseases cannot survive in an "alkalized system." This is when the smoker shifts his/her diet, reducing the acid heavy system, which is all part of the hook of smoking.
14AndOut guides the smoker to balance the central nervous system and body pH. This is the ultimate "key" to freedom from the smoking habit, and the program has testimonials about Mucuna's success as part of this pH balance. (http://www.14andout.com)
According to PeakHealthNow.com, the effects of higher dopamine levels in the body include various physical and psychological benefits, including better moods and improved mental focus. (http://www.peak-health-now.com/mucuna-pruriens-pages.html)
Mucuna's secret is that it removes the anxiety and uneasy feelings associated with the FIRST TWO WEEKS of quitting. This is the most powerful part of the unique program. How many smokers realize that their dopamine levels are not only very low, but they are not producing enough for them to "get over that craving," because nicotine has CONTROLLED this process unnaturally for such a long period?
The beauty of this velvet bean is that the new ex-smoker can control how much is needed to quell any surprise cravings, just as they did with THE CIGARETTE.
An improved libido can be a major "lift"
Mucuna has been known to improve libido and sexual performance, and not just for men. That's right, women and men may benefit from heightened and sometimes extended arousal. A small, but essential amount of testosterone is fuel for the female libido as well! Plus, nicotine is well known for putting a damper on the libido, so Mucuna is sweet redemption for the ex-smoker who plans on staying smoke free for life.
As with all supplements, Nutritionists and Naturopaths tell you to start slow and work your way up. There are plenty of websites which specifically address how much Mucuna fits your diet and your situation.
Just remember, when the central nervous system finds balance (quality, organic multi-vitamin and Vitamin B complex here), and the proper motivation buttons are pushed (Mucuna), the simple will of most people wanting to reclaim their health and life (people screaming "save me!") goes a long way. If you're a smoker now, or maybe even if you recently quit and just want to make sure you never go back, research Mucuna, because who knows, you could end up living past 100 and loving every minute of it.
