This is widely available throughout the northern hemisphere, as fresh, powder, decoction, or supplement form. This super mushroom contians various beneficial nutrients including antioxidants and beta-glucans, which mainly supports the nervous system, digestive and cardiovasucular health.

Research demonstrates that lion’s mane may improve cognition in healthy patients or individuals with mild cognitive impairment. The dose taken to improve performance on cognitive testing was 3g per day. The study showed that the effect wears off when you stop taking it, so to maintain the benefits you are best to continue taking it. By the way - it's great added to coffee.

Another study suggests that Lion’s mane may reduce inflammation and biological markers of Alzheimer’s Disease (i.e., amyloid plaques). Other effects were improved cognition, and increases in the release of nerve growth factor, a protein that can increase the length of nerve cell processes.
