Cowhage Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of the Health Supplement Ingredient Cowhage, or Mucuna Pruriens

Mucuna pruriens – also known as cowhage, cowitch or velvet bean – is a plant that grows in tropic and sub-tropic regions. It is classified as a legume and has seed-producing pods. If the hairy outer covering of the pods touches human skin, it can cause contact dermatitis and severe itching; however, extracts from the plant have long been used in traditional medicine. Today, Mucuna pruriens is often used as an ingredient in health and bodybuilding supplements, such as HGH 30,000 Spray, Somatropinne HGH and Anapolan-MAX 50.

Functions of Cowhage

While Mucuna pruriens is technically classified as a vegetable, its extract is more commonly consumed in the form of medicine or supplements. Cowhage is a good natural source of levodopa, or L-dopa, which in the human body serves as a precursor for the neurotransmitter dopamine. Since L-dopa is used in the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease, cowhage has been widely studied for its potential in this area. In addition, cowhage extract is noted for its anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective and antioxidant properties, which are also believed to be due to the presence of L-dopa. And because L-dopa has been shown to stimulate human growth hormone (HGH) secretion and synthesis, some experts believe that the L-dopa in cowhage may act as an HGH releaser.

Sources of Cowhage

Indigenous to southern China and eastern India, Mucuna pruriens is cultivated in Asia, Africa, and parts of North and Central America, as well as the Caribbean and Pacific Islands. The plant is rich in protein and minerals; and in some cultures, cowhage pods and beans are prepared as food. In Mexico and Guatemala, the seeds are roasted and used as a coffee substitute known as “Nescafe” (though there is no relation to the trademarked coffee brand of the same name). However, in the United States, cowhage is most commonly used in extract form as an ingredient in medicines and dietary supplements.

Cowhage Benefits and Uses

As a natural source of L-dopa, cowhage has been most widely studied and used as a treatment for Parkinsonism and Parkinson’s disease. Evidence suggests it may also benefit other dopamine-related conditions, such as tardive dyskinesia. The plant’s L-dopa content has been shown to increase dopamine and testosterone levels in adult males while suppressing prolactin levels, which supports cowhage’s traditional use as an aphrodisiac and fertility enhancer. Studies have also shown it can reduce cortisol levels, which in turn may lower perceived stress levels and contribute to a sense of well-being. Because L-dopa has been shown to stimulate HGH levels, cowhage extract is frequently used as an ingredient in health and bodybuilding supplements, in which it is believed to promote muscle growth and act as a fat-burner.

Numerous other positive effects have been attributed to cowhage extract, including anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, anti-epileptic, anti-microbial and antioxidant properties. Various studies have explored its potential for treating diabetes, skin diseases and other pathologies. Cowhage has also been successfully used as an anti-venom that counters the toxic effects of some snake bites, such as from cobras and other vipers.

Side Effects of Cowhage and Potential Interactions

Supplements containing Mucuna pruriens extract are generally considered safe for healthy adults. Some minor side effects have been reported, such as nausea and a bloated feeling in the abdomen; less common side effects include vomiting, headaches, jitteriness and insomnia. However, individuals with certain medical conditions or anyone taking medications contraindicated for L-dopa should exercise caution when taking supplements containing cowhage extract. L-dopa can cause low blood pressure, lightheadedness and fainting in patients with cardiovascular disease, and it may cause blood sugar levels to drop too low in people with diabetes or hypoglycemia. The L-dopa in cowhage may also worsen some conditions, such as liver disease, melanoma, gastrointestinal ulcers or mental illness. Cowhage supplements should not be taken in conjunction with monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) antidepressants or when taking methyldopa for hypertension. Moderate interactions may occur with other antihypertensive drugs (guanethidine), insulin, diabetes medications, antipsychotic drugs, tricyclic antidepressants or anesthesia.

More detailed safety information on cowhage side effects and interactions can be found on healthcare websites such as WebMD. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before taking dietary supplements containing cowhage extract.

Cowhage Research and Studies

Numerous studies have examined the pharmacological effects of Mucuna pruriens extract, primarily in relation to its L-dopa content. A 2012 review published in Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine highlights the plant’s medicinal properties and related research findings, many of which are summarized above in the “Cowhage Benefits and Uses” section of this article. Research published in Clinical Neuropharmacology, Parkinsonism & Related Disorders, and the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry have demonstrated the value of cowhage extract in treating the symptoms of Parkinsonism and Parkinson’s disease. In fact, some studies suggest that cowhage extract may have advantages over conventional L-dopa preparations, such as reducing the risk of drug-induced dyskinesia (DID).

Research dating from the early 1970s to present has established that L-dopa has the potential to stimulate HGH secretion and synthesis, as documented in Clinical Interventions in Aging and in several studies published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. One study featured in Nutrition and Metabolic Insights specifically investigated the effects of a Mucuna pruriens (velvet bean) and Chlorophytum borivilianum blend supplement on serum growth hormone levels in exercise-trained men, and found that it produced an increase in circulating HGH levels.

Other studies have indicated that cowhage supplements may contribute to a wide range of health benefits, from treating male infertility to improving sleep quality. Animal studies also suggest that cowhage extract may help reduce blood glucose levels and lower cholesterol, triglycerides and phospholipids. However, further clinical studies are needed to definitively support these findings and their potential applications in humans.

For additional cowhage research, refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

HGH Benefits and Tips for Losing Weight and Improving Health

Spring is in full swing and summertime is right around the corner and if you are looking to lose weight naturally, HGH.com provides a wealth of online HGH and bodybuilding resources and has written many informational articles and posts on natural HGH benefits and tips for losing weight and improving health. From eating right, to proper exercise and selecting the best natural weight loss supplements, the articles below provide information to help you choose the most effective strategies to achieve your weight loss goals.

You've Got 3 Weeks to Lose Weight - The Best Rapid Weight Loss Product

Many weight loss products promise good results, but have you actually looked at what they are going to do in order to give you those results? Some of them merely cause you to lose water weight. You will weigh less, but you will just be dehydrated and the amount of adipose tissue (or body fat) on your body will be exactly the same.

Using these methods is no way to get in shape. You need a product that will actually help you in a scientific, fundamental way and something that will use advances in nutrition to alter both your diet and your body. - Read the full article at: http://www.hgh.com/blogger/post/rapid-weight-loss-supplements-how-to

HGH Reduces Body Fat - Benefits of HGH

Upon turning 40, some people experience what is commonly called “middle-age spread.” Regardless of diet or exercise, it becomes harder and harder to keep the stomach area from storing up fatty deposits. What’s worse is that studies have found that collecting fat around one’s mid-section can result in more serious health issues such as heart disease or diabetes. Human growth hormone pills can counter this risk to one’s health. HGH supplements stave off the accumulation of fat around the stomach and vital organs, thus helping to avoid a potential heart attack or a worse health condition down the road. To Burn Fat - See Somatropinne HGH, HGF Max, Clen XDV. - Read the full article at: http://www.hgh.com/blogger/post/benefits-of-hgh-human-growth-hormone

How do Natural Growth Hormone Supplements Work?

There are many different types of natural growth hormone supplements on the market and it's hard to know not only if they will work, but also how they work. Maybe by understanding how these natural supplements stimulate growth you can determine whether or not they are a scam, or if they indeed will work and work for you.

What do we mean by "growth hormone stimulation"?
Growth Hormone is not necessarily "growing taller", although that's definitely a possibility; but rather when we say growth, we mean muscle and bone growth and density. Other benefits that we won't get into include the known benefits of HGH such as:

 - Anti-aging
 - Better sleep
 - Increased memory
 - Muscle growth
 - Weight Loss - Increased Sexual Performance
 - And about 25 other more other health benefits...

Somatropinne HGH

Specially formulated with eight proven amino acid releasers and six of the most potent growth factors, Somatropinne HGH is the strongest injection-free HGH dosage allowed. Ideal for fitness and increasing muscle tone, Somatropinne HGH is generally used to:

  • Build lean muscle
  • Lose weight
  • Encourage anti-aging
  • Increase rejuvenation

Somatropinne HGH is often the HGH supplementation of choice for professionals as a bodybuilding supplement, to build lean muscle and for weight loss. Dianna, who is in her 30s, wrote us to say, "I've been sleeping better on this for sure! I work out three to four times a week. I have lost 5 pounds since and feel great." With similar results, Michael says, "This product is a miracle drug. I'm 31 and finally able to tone my body. I've always carried five to 10 extra pounds of flab and this took it out and toned me up. I wish I found it years ago!"

I've never felt better. My backache is gone and I'm more active. I'm 40 years old and feel like 30 again.

HGF Max

If you're ready to increase your HGH levels and improve your overall health, then HGF Max is the supplement for you. Known for creating more lean muscle, while reducing your overall body fat percentage, HGF Max is a breakthrough in modern science and provides additional benefits, such as:

  • Elevated HGH levels
  • Improved muscle gains
  • Increased metabolism
  • Enhanced muscle tones
  • Increased energy
  • Boosted immune system
  • Improved sleep

Lawrence Heckathorne shared his incredible HGF Max story with us: "In January 2103, I was 51 years old and had my right knee totally replaced. During the physical rehab process, my therapist pushed too hard on my ankle to achieve more range of motion to my knee. Well, my patella tendon ruptured completely causing my knee cap to slide up into my quadriceps. VERY PAINFUL. After four months in cast, I was finally able to use a walker and go back to another physical therapy chain. During the next few months of blood sweat and tears I found HGH.com and ordered some HGF MAX. After a few months of taking the product I noticed a gradual increase in muscle mass in my right leg. This was awesome because my orthopedic surgeon said because of the severity of my injury I was only going to get back 60% use of my muscles. In May 2014, I'm walking backwards, even up and down stairs, which I was told I would never be able to do. I use HGF Max and my home gym weight stack with all arm and leg attachments, and a lot of hard work. With the HGF Max I feel stronger at 52 than I did at 30. Best regards to all who want to achieve great results using this product, IT WORKS!"
