What is Lion’s Mane?
Lion’s Mane is a mushroom with culinary uses as well as an extended history of use in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine. Lion’s Mane supports overall cognitive health as well as overall cognitive function, it provides neuro-protection benefits, memory enhancement, it may help reduce anxiety, and it has potent antioxidant benefits. For those that may wonder where the name “Lion’s Mane” comes from, it’s because it has a shaggy appearance similar to the mane of a lion.
How does Lion’s Mane improve mental performance?
First of all, Lion’s Mane has a high natural content of vitamins, minerals, and compounds such as erinacines, erinacea lactones, glycoproteins, hericerins, and polysaccharides (or, beta-glucans). It’s these compounds that are thought to provide the benefits Lion’s Mane has become known for. One of the benefits of Lion’s Mane is memory enhancement. In fact, studies have suggested that one way Lion’s Mane improves cognitive function is by enhancing memory. (1)
Lion’s Mane is also thought to promote nerve regeneration by stimulating nerve growth factor production. Nerve growth factor is a protein in the brain that helps maintain neurons, which are the cells that help the brain process and then send information. This means that no matter what the task is, you can focus better and mentally perform better with Lion’s Mane. (2)
Additionally, Lion’s Mane promotes increased levels of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter that is known as the “learning neurotransmitter” and that declines with age, leading to reduced cognitive function. Lion’s Mane enhances acetylcholine levels for improved overall cognitive function. (3)
Lion’s Mane also acts as an antioxidant and supports a healthy immune system. Animal research suggests that Lion’s Mane supports immune system function by enhancing intestinal immune system activity, which helps protect the body from pathogens. (4)
