lion's mane and the brain
Traditionally brewed with tea by monks to increase focus and calmness whilst mediating the Lion's Mane is classified as a natural nootropic.
A nootropic is used to enhance memory and cognitive function. Whilst the vast majority in the West have turned to man-made supplements that can be ineffective and in some cases even harmful, Lions Mane is nature's powerful answer to a nootropic.
In addition to improved focus many people claim to feel a sense of mental clarity, calmness and reduced stress when taking Lion's Mane as part of the daily health routine.
Lion's Mane contains a high level of antioxidants compounds. Antioxidants can help fight and reduce the risk of many illnesses.
In one study in which 14 mushroom varieties were tested for their antioxidant levels, Lion's Mane contained the fourth highest.
supports immune system
For hundreds of years Lion's Mane was used in traditional medicines to help prevent illness.
Now with more research taking place studies are starting to back these claims up.
In fact, in one animal study a supplement of Lion's Mane increased the lifespan by four times of sick mice.
Scientists believe this is due to Lion's Manes positive effects on gut bacteria.
reduces anxiety and stress
With lives becoming increasingly busy it is no wonder over a third of people living in developed countries are believed to suffer from a form of anxiety.
Animal studies have shown promising results in reducing anxiety levels.
This is thought to be due to the ability of the Lion's Mane to regenerate cells in the Hippocampus region of the brain responsible for human emotion response and memory function.
