LIONS MANES HEALTH BENEFITS
Used for centuries as a general tonic and health treatment, the Lion’s Mane Mushroom (also known as Hericium Erinaceus, Yamabushitake or Satyr’s Beard) is native to China, Japan, North America and Europe. Though it was traditionally prescribed as a general restorative, its effect on the brain has always been recognized.
In Japan, it is called yamabushitake which means “mountain priest mushroom.” It’s named after the Yamabushi sect of hermit Buddhist monks believed to possess supernatural powers. According to legend, they used lion’s mane to stay focused during meditation.
The reason Lion’s man is so special is that recent research has shown that it contains within it a not one but two nerve growth stimulate compounds (NGS) which have been named erinacines and hericiones. These rather clever hericones and erinacines stimulate neurons to regrow and rebuild myelin.
Myelin is the fatty substance that surrounds the axon of some nerve cells, forming a electrically insulating layer. This layer is essential for the nervous system to function properly.
This rebuilding of nerve cells and thus improvement of nervous system function, could mean that Lion’s mane could play a vital role in the treatment of nerve related conditions as well as possibly repairing neurological trauma and increasing cognitive abilities.
Lion’s Mane increases the amount of NGF in the brain, which enhances cognition by reducing inflammation, encouraging neural growth, and improving overall brain health.
