Being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease can feel absolutely hopeless.
You’re losing control of your body… and your independence is at stake.
And most of the drugs on the market either don’t work… or they don’t work for long.
But what if there’s another, better option?
Traditional Indian healers may have found the “holy grail” for Parkinson’s patients: a way to reverse the disease.
And, believe it or not, it’s a long-forgotten CURE for snakebites.

There are only two ways you’d ever stumble across Mucuna pruriens, a.k.a. the “velvet bean.”
You could be trekking along the Ganges River in India, where it grows.
Or you could wrestle a cobra… and lose.
Mucuna was used by Indian folk healers to treat bites from venomous snakes.
But that’s not all this furry bean can do.
It could also be the cure that Parkinson’s patients have been praying for.
Extracts from mucuna seeds contain L-dopa, a precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine.
For ages, L-dopa has been the only treatment that’s been able to TOUCH Parkinson’s symptoms.
But the synthetic drug version of L-dopa comes with a host of problems.
It can stop working after you take it for a while. And when you stop taking it, your symptoms can be much worse than when you started.
But mucuna doesn’t come with those risks.
According to the latest research, mucuna seed appears to reduce oxidative stress on your neurological system.
In a 2004 study, researchers out of the UK discovered that mucuna seed extract worked TWICE as fast as the standard L-dopa/carbidopa drug treatment.
And it even worked on Parkinson’s patients who’d become resistant to the drugs… without any of those aggravating side effects.
In another study, published in 2017 in Neurology, high doses of mucuna seed powder improved motor response just as well as levodopa/benserazide drug therapy.
But once again, the participants could tolerate the natural seed extract better than the synthetic drug.
And it works even in advanced cases of Parkinson’s.
These weren’t studies on rats or fruit flies… these were people just like you and me.
You can find dried mucuna seed powder either loose or in capsule form at your local health store. If it upsets your stomach, try switching to a liquid version.
