Lion's Mane has some amazing qualities and is renowned for supporting brain health. It is a quite spectacular fungus and may provide some protection from dementia.
It is rich in rich in vitamins such as thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin and it is also a good source of essential minerals such as manganese, zinc, and potassium.
There are an abundance of oligosaccherides in Lion's Mane that may protect against chronic inflammation, oxidative stress and even have anti tumour properties.
There are studies that show Lion's Mane may help our brain cells regrow quickly which means it is worth taking if you are interested in maintaining good brain health.
The bottle contains 60 vegetarian capsules and you can take one or two capsules a day to get a useful dose of Lion's Mane. I would recommend you take it alongside a high quality multivitamin.
There is a growing interest in the power of mushrooms and we are just starting to understand their power. It appears they are connected to everything that is life and so they have an abundance of amazing qualities. If you are really interested in exploring the world of fungi in more detail than an excellent starting point is the film 'Fantastic Fungi'.
I was astounded and inspired when I watched this film. Truly fungi are the future of maintaining good health and as a health professional i would advocate we all take some form of fungi every day, whether that is supermarket bought mushrooms to cook with or the more interesting and fascinating side to do with supplements.
Once upon a time I would have suggested a good probiotic, some essential fatty acids and a multivitamin as your foundation for supplements but now I cannot ignore the power of fungi and you shouldn't either.
So what are you waiting for? Get yourself some amazing Lion's Mane!
