More About Lion’s Mane
Research suggests that Lion’s Mane is able to stimulate production of NGF. While nerve growth factor is unable to pass through the blood-brain barrier when injected, Lion’s Mane compounds may be able to pass through to the central nervous system. Lion’s Mane may help promote cognitive function in cases of mild cognitive impairment, with effects lasting for four weeks after its use is stopped.
Why Mushrooms and Herbs?
Throughout history, mushrooms and herbs have been strategically combined to support health. Current research recognizes that mushroom can provide a large number of compounds that support most systems in your body. A few of these compounds are enzymes, antioxidants, polysaccharides, and prebiotics.
Organic herbs offer a myriad of benefits to our bodies as well, including detoxification support, balance of hormones, reduction of stress, and healthy brain function. They compliment each other and enhance the function and support provided by the mushrooms.
