Lions Mane is an incredible herb that may enhance and modulate the immune system like nearly all medicinal mushrooms, but what makes it so unique and why it’s recognized as a nootropic, is because research has shown it may have the ability to help stimulate synthesis of nerve growth factor (NGF). This is integral for proper brain development and also may trigger a process known as re-myelination — which helps to keep neurons healthy and maintains their ability to conduct electrical signals efficiently. In numerous studies it has been shown to exponentially enhance cognition and help in the regeneration of brain tissue and neurons, and because of this, there is much optimism for it’s use with neurological degenerative conditions.* This particular extract is of extremely high quality and has been created solely from the fruiting body. The mushrooms have been grown on biodiverse wooden logs, in a controlled environment, under very stringent conditions to ensure absolute integrity of the final product. It has been created as a hydroenthanolic dual extract of the pure fruiting bodies. This allows for a greater concentration of the triterpenes to be made available and standardized to 30% polysaccharides and 1% hericium. It tastes amazing as a simple tea or when added to food, and offers significant beneficial constituents that may directly assist in the regeneration of nerves, enhance mental agility, heighten mood and encourage spiritual connection. This is simply one of the favorite extracts in our collection and great for daily use. Treat yourself to cerebral candy.
