What are lion’s mane mushrooms?

Lion’s mane mushrooms get their name from their large, white, shaggy appearance, which resembles, yes, you guessed it, a full-grown lion’s mane. Also known as Hericium erinaceus, their distinctive, pom-pom-like appearance makes these mushrooms easy to identify. 

Covered in hair-like strands, lion’s mane mushrooms are edible fungi that grow on the trunks of dead hardwood trees across North America, Asia, and Europe.

Lion’s mane mushroom might improve nerve development and function. It might also protect nerves from becoming damaged. It also seems to help protect the lining in the stomach.

People use lion’s mane mushroom for Alzheimer disease, dementia, stomach problems, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

Lion’s Mane – A Functional Mushroom

Lion’s Mane is characterized as a functional mushroom for its vast array of potential health benefits. Some other well-known varieties of functional mushrooms include Reishi, Chaga, Turkey Tail, Cordyceps, Maitake, and Shiitake.

Lion’s Mane is rising through the ranks of its peers because of its wide range of benefits, including supporting a healthy inflammation response and boosting brain function, which makes it a very attractive option for those looking to add a mushroom supplement as part of a healthy lifestyle.

However, before exploring Lion’s Mane’s potential and making it part of your daily routine, it is important to understand the potential benefits to your health and how to find a mushroom powder supplement that will be of high enough quality to actually deliver these benefits. There are many supplements on the market of less-than-pristine quality that will not provide your body with the bioavailable potency of these mushrooms.

Lion’s Mane Dosage

The recommended dosage for adults is 1/2 or 1 gram per day but always check with your health care provider before starting any new supplement.

Lion’s Mane – A Nootropic With Brain Benefits

Any substance or supplement that can enhance brain performance can be classified as a nootropic. “Nootropic” is a word that has come into popular parlance in recent years as the supplement industry has increased its focus on identifying natural and synthetic substances that can be taken orally for improving memory, focus, and cognition. However, even a simple and widely used substance such as caffeine can be considered a nootropic, because it boosts brain function.

Lion’s Mane has a long history of being used as a brain-boosting supplement. Chinese Buddhist monks used Lion’s Mane powder in their tea, claiming it helped them focus in their meditation and increase overall brain power. Modern science has set out to examine the validity of these claims and is finding promising results.

Lion’s Mane Nerve Growth Factor (NGF)

Lion’s Mane can help in supporting the health of nerve tissue. Animal studies show that Lion’s Mane compounds can help promote the growth of nerve tissue and support motor function. These benefits are linked to increased production of nerve growth factor (NGF), a compound that maintains the health of neurons in our brains
