Lion’s Mane mycelium gives you wisdom. The science is in!!!!! Lion’s Mane mycelium is potent in “NGF”. A recent study showed Erinacine D, a compound produced by Lion’s Mane mycelium, stimulated activity of Nerve Growth Factor “NGF” synthesis.  Nerve Growth Factors grow neurons and improve the function of the nervous system. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties and promotion of nerve growth factor gene expression and neurite (axon or dendrite) outgrowth, H. erinaceus mycelium shows great promise for the treatment of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.  Kiss depression goodbye? Evidence shows the possibility of Lion’s Mane Mycelium producing antidepressant like effects.
