Lions Mane Nootropic Overview

Lion’s Mane or otherwise referred to as Yamabushitake, is a true natural nootropic.  This Natural super-herb is one of the most powerful natural nootropics available for cognitive enhancement and neuroprotection, with studies indicating that Lion's Mane might have a permanent effect on cognitive enhancement. Beyond its cognitive benefits, Lion's Mane also contributes to nerve growth and neuroprotection.

How it works:

This natural nootropic gains its amazing effects as a result of the stimulation of NGF or nerve growth factor. NGF, a neurotrophin, is a protein secreted for the growth, maintenance and replication of brain cells.

With the increase in NGF in the brain, Lion’s Mane assists in promoting neurogenesis, increases plasticity and subsequently true cognitive enhancement.

With studies indicating that the increase in NGF is associated with mood enhancement and reduction in depression.

Additionally, it has been suggested that supplementing with Lion’s Mane can boost the immune system and reduce inflammation via the increase of white blood cells and interferon production.
