Lion’s Mane-A Natural Cure And Preventative Against Dementia?
According to the BBC at least one in three of us may be affected by Alzheimer’s disease. It is often seen as an irreversible disease, with symptoms including memory loss and confusion.
Lion’s Mane Mushrooms have long been studied on both their unique neuroprotective and regenerative properties, which are extremely beneficial to patients with Alzheimer’s, but also to those who want to protect against neurodegenerative diseases.
Lion’s Mane have been found to have the rare ability to boost our natural production of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), which help to stimulate nerve regeneration; slowing the onset and reversing Alzheimer’s & neurological conditions.
Lion’s Mane is able to naturally cross the blood-brain barrier which may help brain development and the maintenance and survival of critical sensory neurons.
What Is Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) ?
Nerve growth factor (NGF) is a protein found throughout the body which is critical for the normal growth, repair and regeneration of specific nerve cells (neurons). Nerve growth factor helps to stimulate the health and normal functioning of the brain and nervous system.
Lion’s Mane has been found to help to stimulate our own natural production of Nerve Growth Factor, causing our neurons to actually regrow.
What are Lion’s Mane Mushrooms?
Hericium Erinaceus is found in Asia, North America and parts of Europe and it’s unusual appearance has led it to be called, amongst others, “The Monkey Head Mushroom”. Lion’s Mane is often grown in the wild on dead trees, such as oak and beech. It is an edible fungus, naturally rich in minerals, amino acids, polypeptides, fatty acids, and immune enhancing polysaccharides.
Medicinal Herbal Mushrooms have long been used in Asia as an effective means to battle aging, cancer, inflammation and immune disorders.
Hericium Erinaceus has often been prescribed in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a Qi (Energy) Tonic to treat digestive disorders, ulcers, gastrointestinal illnesses and to stimulate a healthy metabolism. Lion’s Mane is extremely safe, and known to benefit all five organs.
The exciting research, however, is focused on the ability of Lion’s Mane Mushroom to treat neurodegenerative diseases; including Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis.
Lion’s Mane And Healthy Brain Function
Lion’s Mane has been found to have a positive effect on memory, learning ability, reducing free radical damage and reversing beta amyloid production. Lion’s Mane is also an excellent antioxidant; stimulating the body’s own production of antioxidants to prevent free radical damage to healthy cells caused by various stresses and strains.
- A study in Japan showed that Hericium Erinaceus (Lion’s Mane Mushroom) had neuroprotective effects in Mice who were fed the mushroom for 14 days. The mice fed with Lion’s Mane Mushroom had greater mental capacity, recall ability and reduction in beta amyloid plaques in the brain (beta amyloid plaques are thought to be one of the markets of Alzheimer’s disease, as they are involved with the degeneration of nerve tissue and inflammation in the brain).
- A trial in 2009 of 50-80 year old Japanese Men with mild cognitive impairment was conducted to determine the effectiveness of Yamabushitake (Hericium Erinaceus). After 14 days of consuming Yamabushitake powder, the subjects were found to have a significant improvement in their cognitive impairment for as long as they consumed the mushroom.
