Super-charge your brain cells with the power of Lion’s Mane Mushroom.

Benefits of Lion’s Mane Mushroom

Scientific studies confirm its legendary benefits, including: 

Increased brain health

Lion’s Mane Mushroom assists nerve growth factor (NGF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), two important compounds associated with increased brain health.(1-3) 

Improved cognitive function

A 2008 study found that Lion’s Mane mushroom improved brain function in a group of 15 older adults.(4) 

Powerful anti-inflammatory effects

Inflammation leads to damaged cells and reduced function. Antioxidants found in Lion’s Mane Mushroom counteract these effects and neutralize free radicals, preventing them from causing damage.(5) 

May help relieve symptoms of anxiety

Research on mice has found that Lion’s Mane Mushroom in extract form can reduce symptoms of anxiety due to its anti-inflammatory effects.(6,7)

Side effects

Studies in animals suggest that Lion’s Mane Mushroom and its extracts are very safe, even at high doses.(8) Individuals with mushroom allergies should exercise caution as some people have reported reactions.

I have been taking the supplement for a few weeks and although it is hard to rule it out as being responsible for my improved focus given other changes in my life habits, I am confident that Lion's Mane is making a positive impact.
