What is Velvet Calm™?
Velvet Calm ™ (Mucuna pruriens) also known as Velvet Bean, is a tropical vine that produces soft, hair-like covered pods. The seeds inside these pods are considered one of the best botanical sources of L-dopa and have been traditionally used in Ayurvedic holistic medicine as a nerve tonic and adaptogen to help the body deal with stress.
Velvet Calm™, with 15% naturally occurring L-dopa, supports the body’s ability to manage stress and the brain processes that lead to sleep. L-dopa is an amino acid that converts into dopamine, a powerful neurotransmitter in the brain. Dopamine acts upon the central nervous system and plays a vital role in mood, relaxation, sleep, libido, motor function, alertness, energy and more. It is a vital compound required for proper functioning of the brain. Dopamine cannot directly cross the blood-brain barrier  (a filtering mechanism of the blood to the brain and spinal cord tissue) but L-dopa (precursor of dopamine) can. Once L-dopa is able to cross this barrier, it then converts into its active form Dopamine.
Balanced dopamine levels can help the body control muscle movement and increase pleasure, desire and interest in life. Since Velvet Calm™ affects the nervous system, it may help promote better energy, improved sleep patterns, relieve anxiety, reduce cravings, calm the nerves and boost the overall mood.
How to Take Velvet Calm™
Velvet Calm  is best taken early in the day. It is recommended to start off at the lowest dosage and slowly increase, if needed. It is a supplement that works best in small dosages taken consistently rather than taking too much.
The therapeutic properties of this natural plant extract has far reaching benefits and may be just what you need to stay healthy and happy. It’s time to experience inner peace and get that restful sleep you deserve!
