The potential benefits of lion’s mane mushroom are numerous and span physical, cognitive and mental health.

As we age, the brain’s neuroplasticity tends to subside; neuroplasticity the ability of the brain to adapt and change effectively, fluidly, and swiftly. Lion’s mane has unique terpenoids, hericenones and erinacines, that cross the blood-brain barrier and provide neuroprotective effects. For example, erinaceus may help the brain produce nerve growth factor, while lion’s mane mycelia (the underground network of “roots’) also stimulated brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). Both help protect neuroplasticity. 

Studies have demonstrated that lion’s mane supplementation provided significant improvements in cerebral function and mental health. One 16-week study found enhancements in adults with mild cognitive impairment; another study found improvements in depression and anxiety in menopausal women.  Additionally, lion’s mane polysaccharides have strong antioxidant ability in the brain; they are shown to dramatically reduce reactive oxygen species by up to 80 percent. 

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) or free radicals are often produced by stress, which impacts cognitive abilities in healthy adults. Life is abundant in stressors but lion’s mane can help simultaneously calm and reduce stress as well as increase cognitive acuity.  One study tested the mushroom in people aged 18 to 45. Participants performed tasks more quickly after only one-hour post-supplementation. And after 28 days, most reported a significant reduction in stress.

Lion’s mane mushroom may support the stress-mood aspect in overweight individuals beginning a fresh lifestyle reset to lose pounds and gain wellness. Researchers found that overweight subjects had reduced depression, anxiety, and greater BDNF levels. 

Don’t think too much about it –- lion’s mane mushroom supports brain wellness, especially memory, acuity, and focus.
