Lions Mane Breakdown
Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) is a unique and powerful mushroom containing many actives that can have beneficial cognitive properties such as improving memory, learning, focus, and even mood. Actives found in Lions Mane have been shown to potentially reduce anxiety, help with depression and enhance your sense of well-being. -
The primary actives responsible for the cognitive-enhancing properties in Lion's Mane are hericenones and erinacine. Additionally, Lion's Mane contains polyphenols and antioxidants that can also help boost your immune system and decrease inflammation. Lions Mane also contains glycoproteins and polysaccharides.
Hericenones help your brain produce more Nerve Growth Factor (leading to nerve regeneration) and erinacines can cross the blood-brain barrier more effectively to boost the production of neurons. Lion's mane may also stimulate the creation of brain-derived neurotropic factor, leading to enhanced production of new and protects existing brain cells.
Studies have also shown that the actives discussed in Lion’s Mane stimulate the growth of myelin sheath and even reduce amyloid plaques.
It can even decrease levels of a plaque that has been known to cause mental decline by interfering with neural function and transmission of information.
