Lion’s mane mushrooms, also known as yamabushitake, are large, white, shaggy mushrooms that resemble a lion’s mane or a cheerleader’s pom-pom. Lion’s mane mushrooms contain bioactive substances that have beneficial effects on the body, especially the brain, heart and gut.
IN THE LAB
Clinical studies have found that lion’s mane extract can help regenerate brain cells and improve the functioning of the hippocampus, a region of the brain responsible for processing memories and emotional responses. Research has also found that lion’s mane mushroom extract (LMME) may help speed the recovery from brain and spinal cord injuries by stimulating the growth and repair of nerve cells. LMME has been shown to reduce recovery time by 23–41% when given to rats with nervous system injuries and also reduce the size of stroke-related brain injuries by 44% in rats. Animal and test-tube studies suggest that LMME may also help lower blood sugar and reduce diabetic nerve pain in mice.
We’ve micronized our concentrated extract of Lion’s Mane to give you the same benefit of eating over 1 gram of lion’s mane daily. Our Lion’s Mane is harvested from hard wood instead of grain like other manufacturers, and verify that the active compounds (called “Beta-Glucans”) are standardized at over 20%, compared to most mushroom supplements on the market which are near the 6% range.
