Lion’s Mane has been a hugely popular nootropic for centuries in Chinese medicine, and now Western science and society is beginning to catch up to its extraordinary benefits.
Like many nootropics, Lion’s Mane is a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant, using these pathways and properties to exert a myriad of positive effects through the body and brain.
By reducing inflammation, your body is able to combat inflammatory molecules in the brain that cause brain fog, whilst increasing blood flow which is able to improve memory, focus and mood.Other important effects of Lion’s Mane, include the increase in production of NGF and BDNF – both of which helps to protect your neurons from damaging effects and aging, whilst increasing the production of new neurons and enhancing synpatic plasticity – meaning you can carry on being sharp into the future, or maybe even sharper into your old age.
