Lion’s Mane is nature’s gift to your nervous system! It’s the only mushroom possessing not one but TWO potent nerve growth factors, showing potential benefits for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, mild cognitive impairment, multiple sclerosis, leg cramps, anxiety and more. -Improved cognitive function -Nerve regeneration, remyelination, and increased Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) -Improved digestive function and relief from gastritis -Immunosupportive, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant -Anticoagulant; mild ACE inhibitor; improved lipid profile The science about lion’s mane is in its infancy, but evidence already points to unparalleled therapeutic benefits for numerous diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system, summarized in the table below, and the list seems to be growing by the day. -Cancer: One animal study found an extract of lion’s mane inhibited the spread of colon cancer cells to the lung by 66 to 69 percent; the mushroom has also been shown to induce apoptosis in leukemia cells and inhibits angiogenesis -Thrombosis: Hericenone B appears to “potently and specifically inhibit collagen-induced platelet aggregation” Mild ACE Inhibitor: The exact molecule underlying this effect is not currently known, but it is thought to be a bioactive peptide -Lipids: Reported to reduce triglycerides and improve LDL and HDL levels (lion’s mane mycelium, specifically) -Fat Metabolism: Increases the expression of several genes involved in fat metabolism -Wound Healing: Topical application of the extract was found to accelerate wound healing #naturalhealing #cancercure #mushrooms #fungi #canmushroomssavetheplanet #raynegrant
