Lion’s Mane, known in Latin as Hericium erinaceus, is a culinary and medicinal mushroom. Research shows that lion’s mane possesses anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immunostimulating properties in cells, animals and humans. It has been used for thousands of years as a medicine, in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Lion’s Mane has a beneficial impact on neurodegenerative diseases by enhancing “neurite outgrowth” in the brain and related organs. Neurite outgrowth refers to the growth of axons and dendrites from neurons. With this increase in growth, cell degeneration in the brain could slow or reverse, benefiting diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Lion’s Mane is reported in many studies to stimulate the synthesis of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), a protein that promotes the growth and normal function of nerve cells.
Lion’s Mane is anti-inflammatory, improving digestive health issues such as gastric ulcers, gastritis and and inflammatory bowel disease.
Lion’s mane mushroom have antioxidant abilities and help prevent and relieve the oxidative stress caused by poor nutrition and exposure to chemicals in the environment.
Lion’s Mane has immune modulating properties by enhancing both cell-mediated and humoral immunity. This mushroom activates macrophages and NK cells.
