Lion’s Mane On The Brain

Mushroom of the Month

Lion’s Mane on the Brain

Lion’s Mane mushroom has been used for thousands of years in Asian Medicine for gut inflammation and ulcers, memory, focus concentration, anxiety, diabetes, and longevity support.

Early research suggests that Lion’s Mane supports nerve growth factor, grows new brain cells, and protects against neurodegeneration, making it a potentially useful herb for dementia, Alzheimer’s, dementia, MS, and Parkinson’s disease, and boosting cognitive performance.

It’s also shown benefits for anxiety, depression, regulating diabetes, cholesterol, and blood pressure, though more research is need.

This week, one of my 70-year-old patients who’d always had a sharp memory noticed that she was struggling to remember those 6-digit codes to log into websites, and was slower to recall names and words she’s known for years. After taking Lion’s Mane for 2 months, she noticed those problems went away, and reported more clarity and focus.

Want to give Lion’s Mane a try? If you’re local, stop by the clinic!

If not, order superior quality, dual-extracted, organic mushrooms with no added starches or fillers from a brand I trust here.

Real Mushrooms also combines Lion’s Mane in a synergistic blend Ayurvedic herbs that support mental clarity in a formula Real Clarity, which I like.

(Of course, check with your health practitioner to see if this is right for you.)
