The cognitive symptoms we associate with aging—like memory loss and lack of focus—can be caused by degeneration in your brain cells. Research suggests that Lion’s Mane mushroom extract may actually support brain health by stimulating production of nerve growth factor, a compound that promotes the growth and protection of brain cells.
The role of Lion’s Mane mushrooms in memory is twofold. First, the stimulation of nerve growth factor helps protect against the symptoms of memory loss by keeping brain cells in healthy working order. Secondly, research suggests that Lion’s Mane may prevent the buildup of amyloid beta, a substance that forms the brain plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
The antioxidant activity and anti-inflammatory properties of Lion’s Mane mushrooms improve blood flow to the brain, which provides more oxygen to the brain’s cells for improved cognitive performance. It may also help normalize mood in the face of mild anxiety and depression, potentially alleviating the brain fog that can be symptomatic of those conditions.
