Description

Summary

Lion’s mane mushroom has been widely used in traditional medicines within Asia.

Benefits and Effects

Lion’s Mane mushroom health benefits include, inducing Nerve Growth Factor synthesis as well as promoting neurite outgrowth [1]

Alleviate neurodegenerative disease symptoms

Lion’s Mane was able to regenerate damaged nerves in rats which resulted in the return of hind limb function. [2]

Orally administered Lion’s Mane was found to provide a protective effect against the progression of Parkinson’s disease in Mice. [3]

Lion’s mane and Alzheimer’s

Animal studies shown lions mane is able to reduce the amount of amyloid plaque which plays a crucial role in Alzheimer’s disease [4]

Improvement of cognitive function

A double-blind, placebo-controlled study on middle-aged to elderly people suffering from mild cognitive impairment found that cognitive function improved significantly in patients being administered the Lion’s Mane Mushroom. [5]

A study on mice found dietary supplementation of Lion’s Mane Mushroom caused significant improvement in recognition as well as helping preserve short term memory. [6]

Improving depression

In a four-week placebo-controlled study, those consuming Lion’s Mane Mushroom experienced significantly lower levels of depression and anxiety. [7]

Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Lion’s Mane Mushroom shows anti-inflammatory effects, as well as the ability to prevent inflammation of adipose tissue associated with obesity. [8]

Lion’s Mane can promote gut health. One study found it to have direct inhibitory effects against bacterial stomach infection H. pylori. [9]

Accelerated wound healing

A study on rats using topical mushroom extract from lion’s mane found not only was wound healing faster but it also produced less significant scarring. [10]

How Lion’s Mane Mushroom Works

Lion’s Mane is abundant in bioactive compounds. [4]

Lion’s Mane Mushroom polysaccharides, benefits include; antitumor, immunomodulation, anti-gastric ulcer, neuroregeneration, neuroprotection, anti-oxidation, anti-fatigue and more. [11]

Dosage

Recommended dosage is 500-1000mg taken between one and three times a day. We recommend you start with lower doses and increase if necessary.
