Lion’s mane is not only a powerful brain tonic, improving memory and cognitive function, it also supports nerve function, even improving nerve damage caused by chronic high levels of blood sugar.
Lion’s mane increases Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) in the brain, enhancing neuronal growth, regeneration, and synaptic plasticity. It improves myelination, enhancing neuronal communication and nerve regeneration and it increases synaptic potentiation thereby improving memory.
Research also confirms lion’s mane ability for stimulating the growth of axons and dendrites from neurons, which can then slow or reverse cell degeneration in the brain associated with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
