Lion's Mane mushroom is a powerful medicinal mushroom for the brain, nerves and immune system. It has been treasured for thousands of years throughout Asia as an edible fungi and health tonic. It is rich in minerals, amino acids, polypeptides, fatty acids, polysaccharides and nerve growth factors. Lion's Mane has been used to promote healthy brain function, heal and regenerate nerve tissue, boost cognitive function and muscular coordination, and can be helpful against digestive and gastrointestinal disorders. It is said to give one “nerves of steel and the memory of a lion.” It grows wild hanging on logs and trees and it gets it name from the white cascading tendrils that resemble a lions mane. Lion's Mane contains high amounts of antioxidants, beta-glucans and polysaccharides that help support and significantly enhance the immune system. Lion's Mane has been described as the "smart mushroom.” It is a potent catalyst for brain tissue regeneration and helps to improve memory and cognitive functions as well as its potential for reducing anxiety and depression. Lion's Mane has been studied to be extremely effective at encouraging and inducing Nerve Growth Factor in the brain. Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) is a protein that plays a major role in the maintenance, survival and regeneration of neurons. NGF is required by the brain and important sensory neurons to keep the entire nervous system strong and healthy. Lion's Mane is a powerful superfood mushroom to include into our diets as part of an intelligent protocol for brain and mood health.
