The Fungiology Difference
Hericium erinaceus - common name Lion's Mane, also known as Yamabushitake or Satyr’s beard, also Bearded Tooth or Tree Hedgehog. Although Lion's Mane is enjoyed as a culinary mushroom, it has long been used in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). More recently, it has gained respect for its supportive role in the nutritional and holistic medical communities.
- 100% Certified Organic Mushrooms
- Cultivated and Packaged in the U.S.A.
- Full-Spectrum (Primordia, Mycelia, Fruiting Bodies and Extracellular Compounds)
Shizuoka University studies show that Hericium Erinaceus mushroom encourages creation of NGF (Nerve Growth Factor) which improves nerve health. The regeneration capacity for neurons helps neurological issues such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and dementia.
Shizoka University discovered two compounds in the mushroom called hericenones and erinacines, which can pass through the blood-brain barrier and set off chemical processes that stimulate the release of NGF (Nerve Growth Factor), which can boost NGF five-fold in cell cultures. Erinacines are the most powerful inducers of NGF synthesis among all currently identified natural compounds.
Increases in NGF was also seen in the hippocampus of mice, a key area for memory.
Other animal research on NGF has shown:
This laboratory work is now reflected in people.
- Prevent brain cells breaking down and dying with age
- Protect against cognitive decline caused by amyloid beta, the plaque in Alzheimer's
- Promote the growth of brain cells following injury
- Enhance production of myelin, the sheath that protects nerves
One double-blind, placebo-controlled trial found that men and women over 50 with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) saw a significant increase in cognitive function after taking Lion's Mane supplements. They scored higher on all memory and thinking tests.
Another study found that measures of independence such as walking, eating and dressing improved in all seven dementia patients taking the supplement and six out of seven saw improvement in memory, understanding and communication abilities.
A study of 30 postmenopausal women found those taking Lion's Mane were less anxious and depressed, experienced improved concentration, and felt better about life. The improvements were not seen in the control group taking a placebo.
Other benefits include destruction of H.Pylori, the main bacteria involved in peptic and gastric ulcers.
Also found to help with anxiety and depression.
Helps improve and regulate the immune system, and lowers LDL cholesterol while stimulating HDL ("good" cholesterol).
