Mucuna Pruriens 

has a long history of medical use, with records of it being used in Ayurvedic medicine over 2,000 years ago


It is an irritant, rubefacient herb that destroys internal parasites, is diuretic and aphrodisiac


The seeds of the plant are a source of the substance L-DOPA, which revolutionized the treatment of Parkinson's Disease in the 1960's


The seeds also contain hallucinogenic toxic compounds


The roots are diuretic and purgative


They are used internally in the treatment of paralysis, nervous complaints, cholera and kidney problems


Externally, they are used in the treatment of elephantiasis and dropsy

The roots are harvested as required and can be dried for later use


The irritant hairs on the seedpods are taken internally in the treatment of roundworms


Great care should be taken in this treatment - the irritant hairs can be fatal if taken in excess


The seedpods are harvested when ripe and the hairs scraped off


These are dried, powdered then mixed with treacle, honey or added to ointments


The seeds are aphrodisiac

A vinous tincture of the pods was formerly used in the treatment of dropsy
