Research done on Krauncha Powder:

  • The pharmacological action of Krauncha is due to action of levodopa on the brain. Evidence indicates that symptoms of Parkinson's disease are related to depletion of stratal dopamine activity in basal ganglia. The seed powder of the leguminous plant, Mucuna pruriens Powder has long been used in traditional Ayurvedic Indian medicine for diseases including Parkinsonism.
  • Levodopa is metabolic precursor of dopamine and unlike dopamine can cross the blood-brain barrier. Once in the brain it is decarboxylated to form dopamine.
  • Kapikachchhu Powder improves all the signs and symptoms of Parkinsonism. Bradykinesia responds first followed by rigidity and tremors. Improvement of these primary neurological symptoms is accompanied by similar improvement in overall functional ability. Secondary motor symptoms such as disturbance in posture, gait, associated movements, facial expression, speech, handwriting, swallowing and respiration are also prominently improved.
  • Krauncha also favorably influences the psychic behaviors producing a sense of well-being, an increased interest in self and surroundings. After initial treatment regimen, the beneficial effects of Kapikachchhu Powder can be maintained for prolonged periods by smaller maintenance dose.
  • The clinical studies with mucuna seed powder suggest that this natural source of L-dopa might possess advantages over conventional L-dopa preparations in the long term management of Parkinson's disease. (J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry. 2004)
