Lions Mane (Hericium erinaceus) is a type of edible mushroom with a long history of use in Chinese medicine. It contains β-glucan polysaccharides, which reduce inflammation and contribute to the promotion of nerve growth factor which improves nerve and brain health. It has been shown to improve mild cognitive impairment in older adults.
Compounds that have a protective effect on the brain while supporting its natural cognitive functions are called nootropics. Lion’s mane contains a broad range of naturally occurring bioactive compounds, known for their cognitive health benefits. Research has shown that there are distinct compounds in two parts of the mushroom: the fruiting body and the mycelium. The benefits of consuming Lion’s mane are greatest when one consumes both parts of the mushroom-like this one from MycoNutri – rather than one or the other.
