Lion’s Mane, as a medicinal mushroom, has traditionally been used to fortify the spleen, nourish the gut, and also as an anticancer drug, within both the Chinese and Japanese medical systems.
In Japanese, this is translated and called the “Mountain Priest Mushroom”. It is rich in some physiologically important components; including, β-glucan polysaccharides, which are responsible for anti-cancer, immuno-modulating, hypolipidemic, antioxidant and neuro-protective activities of this mushroom.
Lion’s Mane is reported to have therapeutic potentials that can benefit you, such as: anti-microbial, anti-hypertensive, anti-diabetic and wound healing properties. It also includes anti-inflammatories which when working with its ability to factor nerve growth within the body shows promise for the treatment of both Alzheimers and Parkinson's diseases.
Lion’s Mane has long been used as a support for the functions of the mind.
