Velvet bean is a natural remedy for male sexual dysfunction

Velvet bean (Mucuna pruriens) is a powerful natural alternative treatment for male sexual dysfunction. This was the conclusion of a recent study published in the International Journal of Ayurvedic Medicine which validated the tropical legume’s efficacy in improving sperm motility and increasing sperm count in human males.

  • Fifteen males, all of whom had one form or another of sexual dysfunction, were observed over the course of a month.
  • During the trial period, each male was given five grams of ground velvet bean mixed with warm milk twice a day.
  • The participants’ total sperm count, as well as their sperm motility (the ability of the sperm to move through the female reproductive tract), was measured each day.
  • Velvet bean was found to improve both parameters after 30 days.
  • All participants likewise reported an improvement in their coital performance. This may be attributed to the psychological relief experienced by the males after seeing significant improvements in their sexual function.

Authors of the study suggest using velvet bean as a safe natural treatment for male sexual dysfunction, especially those related to sperm health.
