Swanson Lion's Mane Mushroom is a dietary supplement that includes an extract from the lion’s mane mushroom. It provides the full spectrum of bioactive components that determine the powerful nootropic potential and numerous health benefits of this fungus.
The product is recommended primarily to strengthen the memory and cognitive functions. Works well in periods of intense mental work; it is also suggested for people who are concerned about the decline in cognitive skills due to the aging of the organism.
Lion's Mane is the colloquial name of the mushroom (Hericium Erinaceus) which can be found in Asia, some parts of Europe and North America. Its mycelium consists of characteristic long strands that resemble the mane of a lion and that is where its name came from.
The lion's mane is one of the so-called medicinal mushrooms that are commonly used in fungotherapy (mushroom treatment). In addition, it has a culinary application - residents of Asian countries appreciate it for its delicious taste and high nutritional value. It is a good source of protein, polysaccharides and basic minerals such as iron, selenium, potassium and zinc. The most important bioactive substances of therapeutic importance are erinacine-related diterpenoids, as well as hericenones and several unique acids, which were not found in any other raw material of plant origin.
Lion's Mane promotes the brain health. Bioactive components present in a mycelium and cap intensify the release of NGF (nerve growth factor), which promotes the strengthening of brain plasticity and accelerates the development of neurons, and supports the process of myelination. This action is essential for the brain health and optimal mental performance. The researchers emphasize that all dysfunctions in the production of NGF are associated with the development of neurodegenerative diseases and cognitive disorders.
Lion’s Mane has a powerful nootropic potential. It favors the improvement of the memory and improves the thought processes. In rodent studies, it was shown that under the action of compounds isolated from the mycelium of lion’s mane, the level of acetylcholine rises and the choline acetyltransferase (enzyme catalyzing the synthesis of acetylcholine from choline) increases in the organism. Studies on adults confirmed that the 16-week supplementation of this mushroom extracts allowed participants to improve the results in intelligence tests.
Lion's Mane has a positive effect on mental well-being. The research was carried out with the participation of women in the menopausal age who complained of the depression and anxiety disorders. A significant part of the symptoms disappeared after the supplementation with a lion’s mane extract. In addition, test participants reported that their sleep quality improved.
Lion's Mane supports the circulatory system. Hericenones present in the fungus have antiaggregatory activity and also promote the reduction of triglycerides and cholesterol levels. They also seem to be an activator of PPARα - a key participant in fatty acid metabolism. Some research suggests that a lion’s mane can protect against hypertension. The compounds present in its mycelium to some extent inhibit the activity of the ACE enzyme. Inhibitors of this enzyme are commonly used to treat hypertension.
Lion's Mane supports the digestive system. It has a protective effect on the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract and promotes the regeneration of damage. It has a strong anti-inflammatory effect, which is why it works well in the case of inflammation of the stomach lining or ulcerative enteritis. In addition, laboratory tests have shown that the mushroom inhibit the growth of Helicobater pylori, a bacterium responsible for the formation of stomach ulcers.
Lion's Mane strengthens the immunity. Polysaccharides present in the mycelium of the mushroom activate macrophages and NK cells. In addition, they stimulate the maturation of human dendritic cells, which play an important role in the initiation and regulation of the immune response.
In conclusion, Swanson Lion's Mane Mushroom is an edible fungus with numerous advantages. It can be used both to improve the memory and cognitive functions, as well as to strengthen the immunity and overall health.
