What's so magical about this wonderful Mushroom ?

While Lion’s Mane has many different aliases (Lion Mushroom, Lions Head Mushroom, Black Mane Lion, The Lion Mane, Lion's Mane fungus), you could say this medicinal mushroom is best known for one superstar benefit: optimizing brain function. If this fungus is related to increased mood, memory, and focus, we want to know everything there is to know!

One of the most notable Lion’s Mane benefits is its positive association with brain health. Consider Lion’s Mane the anti-aging mushroom for the brain. Lion’s Mane is known to stimulate specific neuron cells, known as Nerve Growth Factor, that are directly related to brain function. The absence of these cells may cause Alzheimers-like symptoms, speeding up the aging process of the brain and causing degenerative diseases. 

Lion’s Mane helps prevent nerve damage in the brain by nourishing the cells needed for brain regeneration. Simply put, Lion’s Mane is a vital ingredient in the fountain of youth!

Could Protect Against Dementia & Alzheimers

The brain’s ability to grow and form new connections typically declines with age, which may explain why mental functioning gets worse in many older adults.

Studies have found that lion’s mane mushrooms contain two special compounds that can stimulate the growth of brain cells: hericenones and erinacines.

Additionally, studies have found that lion’s mane may help protect against Alzheimer’s disease, a degenerative brain disease that causes progressive memory loss.

In fact, lion’s mane mushroom and its extracts have been shown to reduce symptoms of memory loss, as well as prevent neuronal damage caused by amyloid-beta plaques, which accumulate in the brain during Alzheimer’s disease.

Helping Brain Fog

“Brain fog” is not a disease. Instead, it’s a vivid description of that vague, uncomfortable feeling where the brain seems not to be working right—concentration is difficult, reaction is slow, memory is a little poor, the mind just seems “foggy.”

The name is a little humorous, and being foggy for a few hours occasionally is a mere annoyance, but persistent, chronic fog can become a real impairment.

Many things can cause brain fog and its very common in perimenopause and menopausal women.

This incredible activity caused by Lion's Mane is referred to as neurogenesis. Through neurogenesis, brain fog is lifted, memory improves, and cognition is enhanced.

Depression 

Lion's mane may help alleviate depression and anxiety, suggests a small study published in Biomedical Research in 2010. For the study, 30 menopausal women consumed cookies containing either lion's mane or a placebo every day for four weeks. Analyzing study findings, researchers observed that members of the lion's mane group were less irritable and anxious and had less difficulty concentrating than members of the placebo group.

Cognitive Function and Memory

Known as “the smart mushroom,” Lion’s Mane is best known for its brain-boosting properties and its ability to support cognitive function. The antioxidants in Lion’s Mane may contain properties that can protect the brain, reduce inflammation, and promote memory, learning, and cognitive function.The reduced inflammation stimulates an increase in blood flow, which floods the brain with a vital fuel source: oxygen. More blood means more energy and oxygen; more energy and oxygen means increased memory and cognitive function!These enhanced cognitive functions may explain why Lion’s Mane for brain fog is so effective. Brain fog is associated with a lack of concentration, short-term memory, and the inability to focus. These symptoms are related to poor lifestyle habits that promote inflammation and oxidative stress. Luckily, Lion’s mane contains powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that may help to combat these symptoms, along with increased cognitive support.
