Increase Height And Grow Taller Eating Mucuna Pruriens Or Velvet Bean

As a followup to a previous post about the possibility of using L-Dopa to Increase height, I mentioned at the end that I will be feeding my future children a lot of beans, specifically fava beans, broad beans, and velvet beans. Of the 3 types, the velvet bean is the most commonly mentioned one who is related to height increase.

When I did a search on google for the term “mucuna pruriens growth hormone” the results showed a few interesting links.

From Resource 1,

Scientific properties:

Mucuna pruriens contains 40mg/g of a compound called L-DOPA which is a direct precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine works as one of the best natural hgh releasers (human growth hormone) by stimulating the pituitary gland to increase it’s production. High levels throughout life of the body’s own natural growth hormone (not hormones from the synthetic injections) is known as a major key for human longevity.

Dopamine also increases other youth hormones such as testosterone (it must be mentioned that these increases are never throwing the endocrine system out of balance, merely improving levels which tend to decrease over time in the average person). These resulting increased levels of these hormones from the use of mucuna pruriens extracts, powders and/or raw herbs explains its association with increasing libido, fertility, lean muscle mass, reducing signs of aging such as wrinkles and body fat, increasing bone density and even boosting overall energy levels.

Animal studies have shown powerful results such as a ten fold increase in mounting frequency by male rats! Also a decrease in post ejaculatory intervals have been observed, meaning that the animals being studied are more quickly able to return to “the task at hand”. This could be due to the fact that mucuna pruriens extract basically cures premature ejaculation and the amount of downtown between ejaculations by reducing hypersensitivity in the genitals.

L-DOPA from mucuna pruriens has been shown to be safer and more effective for controlling Parkinson’s disease than the pharmaceutical drugs Levodopa and Carbidopa. This is because the vast array of other chemical constituents that accompany L-DOPA in the unprocessed plant also play a role in its ability to manage Parkinson’s disease. Since Parkinson’s is in large part a deficiency of the neurotransmitter dopamine, this adaptogenic herb is crucial for anyone looking to manage this disease. It also looks to be very promising as a treatment for recovering drug addicts and people suffering from depression related illness, since these people have deficiencies of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine (which the velvet beans contain and help balance in the human body).

From Resource 2 , you can buy the DopaBean for around $14.
Mucuna: Human Growth HormoneL- Dopa contains natural secretagogues which may support the body’s ability to stimulate the natural release of growth hormone. The blood carries the dopamine into the brain, where it naturally increases HGH production from the pituitary gland. The increased dopamine levels also optimize the production of other hormones, including testosterone, leading to increased sex drive and improved sexual performance for both men and women, beneficial in stimulating muscle growth, as well as burning fat from fat cells.

Me: This post was really more of a repost of the one before for L-Dopa. It is true that L-Dopa is not found just in beans, but the Velvet Beans seem to have the most L-Dopa in them in terms of weight percentage than other vegetables. Just something to note the next time you are in your grocery store.

    I haven’t found any studies that show a direct link in overexpression or mutations in GH production cause overgrowth. However, knockout of SOCS2 which inhibits GH causes overgrowth.

    But before we know for sure that overexpression of GH1 increases height we need to find a study that shows that overexpression of GH causes overgrowth.

    Otherwise, for now you should be working on a SOCS2 inhibitor.

    Due to our serious health problems our daughter has been exposed to a great deal of stress in her life. In the first several years of her life (the least stressful ones) all of her her growth was completely normal, and it continued this way until the normal point for growth spurts for girls leading to puberty. Her growth (height) has been very slow. She is smaller than expected. Her height is not typical for either side of the family.

    Research into PTSD has shown that extended stress DOES decrease many neurotransmitters when teh over-excited system eventually crash. Without enough dopamine there is a lack of HGH availability, so it follow that children in places of serious ongoing stress could easily be shorter.

    Interestingly enough, illness that effect the hypocampus ardenals thyriod axis also decrease both born dopamine and HGH (see reasearch into CFS/FMS and also Parkinsons and healing issues). We worry that the inescapable isolation and stress of our family situation is effecting her badly, even in growth.

    At 16 she is under 5 foot. Mother is 5’9″ and father is 5’10”. Growth patterns are not common for either side of the family, even back several generations, but she has normal menarsche and is far too tall to get aid from an endocrinologist (besides we live on disability pension income and could not afford that).

    Daughter has had occasional symptoms indicative of low dopamine style depression (memory, focus, initiative – and has brain reward seeking behaviors) . As a person with very low dopaime (at least now my hands no longer constantly shake thanks to MUCUNA) I know the signs of low dopamine vs other neurotransmitter problems (several of which I also have sue to chemical damage to the temporal, endocrine and hippocampus regions)

    There is serious evidence that long term stress reduces dopamine, which can easily effect the production of HGH.

    Just to say, it’s preferable if you sprout the beans before eating them, as this decreases the phytic acid and makes the iron and zinc 400% more available. Zinc is needed for good growth too, especially in boys.
