A Beautiful Brain Booster indeed – That is why it is part of the Wonderful Immunity Mushroom Mix!
This Mushroom Lions Mane, stands up to its name and more. A stand out ‘figure’ in the Fungus family for sure. It is considered a ‘nootropic’ which is associated with cognitive function, memory and creativity.
Lions Mane is and has been used widely in Asian Countries, both in as culinary accompaniment and medicinally for many, many years. It can be enjoyed raw or cooked.
Lions Mane can be found growing on dead and living mediums, the Lions Mane used in the Immunity Mushroom Mix is grown by the JUNCAO method, whereby organic grasses and herbs are used as the growing substrate.
This fungus has quite a list of aiding more than just brain function, being neuroprotective, assisting anxiety, hypertension, cardio-protective, anti-carcinogenic, anti-diabetic and more. (1)
As mentioned, the biggest benefit Lions mane is known for is its ability to help with the cells of the brain and functions the brain carries out. This could be particularly good for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s as it has a regenerative capability in the peripheral nerves. (2) Lions Mane can enhance ‘neurite growth’ (the cells related to nerve impulses) in the brain. So, this is pretty exciting for cell regeneration in the brain. Other studies show that the association of Lions Mane and Alzheimer and other related symptoms may improve with continual use (3)
Inflammation: is another big ‘Tick’ for Lions Mane. With its anti-bacterial benefits and being gut supporting. In the gut can also be bacteria that you don’t want in the gut and one bacteria is ‘Helicobacter pylori’ which can irritate the stomach or intestines and can cause ulcers. (4)
It seems this Immunity Mushroom Mix it just the ticket for this bacteria with all the other medicinal mushrooms in the mix for maximum support!
Apart from that Inflammation is a key to helping injury, dis-ease etc, initially, but it’s getting the inflammation which to turn ‘off’ after it has done its job in helping the injury. H2 Modified Citrus Pectin really helps with that too!
The Heart and Circulation is another benefit with Lions Mane:
Potential strokes could very much be helped with Lions Mane (5) with the prevention of blood clumping and ultimately a stroke.
Also cholesterol levels might be helped with this wonderful fungus as well. Keeping the ‘HDL’ (good fats) and LDL (bad fats) in check.
