LIONS MANE MUSHROOM POWDER
30:1 Super Strength
What is Lion’s Mane
Lion’s Mane is a mushroom that resembles, well… the mane of a lion. This odd-looking fungus is most well-known for providing brain-boosting or nootropic effects. While this is what it is most well-known for, there is research going on to investigate many other benefits from anti-cancer to diabetes prevention (we will go into these shortly).
Many people are hesitant to start consuming foreign fungi that they’ve never heard of before. Despite its strange look, it can now be purchased in high-quality extracts that eliminate many of the concerns that people have. Additionally, you should know that there is a whole list of powerful mushrooms emerging as some of the most potent superfoods the world has to offer.
Add that to the fact that a single study found that lion’s mane has the potential to provide antimicrobial, cancer fighting, diabetes preventing, energy boosting, blood pressure balancing, cholesterol improving, age slowing, heart protecting, liver protecting, kidney protecting, AND brain boosting benefits… This is a true superfood to add to your daily regimen.
Improves Brain Health
Lions’ Mane is most well-known for its effects on the brain. First and foremost, it is considered a nootropic. A nootropic is simply anything that is able to enhance mental acuity without any negative side effects. Biohackers and high-performers are starting to use Lion’s Mane for this purpose.
The benefits don’t stop there. Lion’s Mane actually stimulates the growth of new neural pathways in the brain, giving it powerful implications for helping things like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and even neuropathy of different kinds (1, 2, 3).
Finally, this mushroom has been shown to protect brain cells and nerves from degeneration due to various environmental threats we face on a daily basis including: environmental toxins, certain drugs, and our bodies’ own inflammatory processes (4, 5).
Fights Anxiety and Depression
Not only can Lion’s Mane improve brain function, but it may also offer relief for those suffering anxious or depressed feelings. Preliminary studies are showing that it may do so by upregulating neurogenesis in the hippocampus of mice (6). The hippocampus is the area of the brain that is thought to be responsible for regulating things like emotional responses and memory.
There is also evidence that depressive symptoms are related to neurological inflammation (7). Given Lion Mane’s anti-inflammatory effects, this could be another way in which this mushroom can help fight these unwanted emotional responses.
