Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) is a pluripotent mushroom with neuroprotective, nootropic, immune and antioxidant effects.
Lion’s Mane can improve memory and reasoning, and can be very helpful in cases of mental fatigue. Lion’s Mane sub-ingredients such as hericenones and erinacines may act together as a nerve growth factor (NGF) involved in growth, maintenance, proliferation and survival of neurons. By promoting the nerve growth factor and fighting oxidative stress, Lion’s Mane may indirectly protect and support healthy brain structure and nerve myelination.
Being a source of fungal polysaccharides, like other medicinal mushrooms, Lion’s Mane is beneficial for the immune system. Being a source of antioxidants, it can also fight inflammation.
Lion’s Mane 5000™ provides a powerful 10:1 extract for an enhanced therapeutic effect.
