How to use "Mucuna" in context?

If you've ever experienced the sleepless, headachy, anxious feeling that can come along with insomnia, you may be familiar with mucuna - a phytonutrient found in African violets, yams, cocoa beans, figs, mangoes, osmanthus, shiitake mushrooms, and other herbs.

When consumed in small amounts throughout the day, mucuna can help regulate neurotransmitters and help you fall asleep. It's also a leading source of l-theanine, which calms the mind and is often cited as a key contributor to the relaxation effects of quality sleep.
