LION'S MANE: SHEN CAPSULES | NOOTROPIC TONIC
Lion's Mane is an incredible mushroom that can help to modulate the immune system and support wellness, like nearly all medicinal mushrooms, but what makes Lion’s Mane so incredibly unique is its renowned nootropic effects.
Studies have shown that Lion’s Mane may have the ability to help stimulate synthesis of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) in the brain.* NGF is integral for proper brain development and also may trigger a process known as re-myelination — which helps keep neurons healthy and maintains their ability to conduct electrical signals efficiently.
In numerous studies Lion’s Mane has been connected with exponentially enhanced cognition and help in the regeneration of brain tissue and neurons.* Because of this, there is much optimism for its use with neurological degenerative conditions. It may also support memory, concentration, creativity, and overall cognition
Unlocking the Meditative Mind
Lion’s Mane has a long history of being consumed as food in China and Japan. However, the mushroom is perhaps even more famous for its use in expanding and increasing spiritual consciousness. The Yamabushi buddhist monks used Lion’s Mane regularly, even calling it “Yamabushitake” - a word which merges the name of their own Japanese tribe and the flowing garments they wore, known as “suzukake.”
Lion’s Mane is typically found on decaying oak, walnut, and beech trees. Monks would harvest the mushroom before using it to dive into the depths of meditation. But why did these meditators choose to use Lion’s Mane specifically? It turns out the mushroom is famous for enhancing transcendental perception. By allowing us to tap into our mystical life force, or Qi, Lion’s Mane enhances the human concentration and overall quality of one’s physical and spiritual mind.
Today, everyone from modern spiritual seekers to nootropic fanatics are rediscovering these ancient benefits of Lion’s Mane. When it comes to memory, concentration, creativity, and overall cognition, it seems there is no better mushroom for elevating the consciousness or higher mind, and unlocking the primordial wisdom that is our birthright.
