The Health Benefits of Lions Mane Mushroom
Have you heard of lions mane mushroom? It is used in many natural medicine applications. It can be eaten just as is too. Oftentimes people compare the taste to a seafood like flavor profile.
I'm so excited to let you know of an upcoming product release that will be featuring this powerhouse medicinal mushroom!
Here's just a few sneak peeks on the way that lions mane is beneficial for your body!
1) May Speed Recovery from Nervous System Injuries
The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord and other nerves that travel throughout the body. These components work together to send and transmit signals that control almost every bodily function. Injuries to the brain or spinal cord can be devastating. They often cause paralysis or loss of mental functions and can take a long time to heal. However, research has found that lion’s mane mushroom extract may help speed recovery from these types of injuries by stimulating the growth and repair of nerve cells (click HERE)
In fact, lion’s mane mushroom extract has been shown to reduce recovery time by 23–41% when given to rats with nervous system injuries.

In one study, high doses of lion’s mane mushroom extract given to rats immediately after a stroke helped decrease inflammation and reduce the size of stroke-related brain injury by 44% While these results are promising, no studies have been conducted in humans to determine if lion’s mane would have the same therapeutic effect on nervous system injuries.
2)May Help Fight Cancer
Cancer occurs when DNA becomes damaged and causes cells to divide and replicate out of control. Some research suggests that lion’s mane mushroom has cancer-fighting abilities, thanks to several of its unique compounds (click HERE and HERE)
In fact, when lion’s mane extract is mixed with human cancer cells in a test tube, they cause the cancer cells to die at a faster rate. This has been demonstrated with several types of cancer cells, including liver, colon, stomach and blood cancer cells.. In addition to killing cancer cells, lion’s mane extract has also been shown to slow the spread of cancer. One study in mice with colon cancer found that taking lion’s mane extract reduced the spread of cancer to the lungs by 69% (click HERE) Another study found that lion’s mane extract was more effective than traditional cancer medications at slowing tumor growth in mice, in addition to having fewer side effects
3)Suggested to Boost the Immune System
Animal research shows that lion’s mane mushroom can boost immunity by increasing the activity of the intestinal immune system, which protects the body from pathogens that enter the gut through the mouth or nose These effects may partly be due to beneficial changes in gut bacteria that stimulate the immune system One study even found that supplementing with lion’s mane extract daily nearly quadrupled the lifespan of mice injected with a lethal dose of salmonella bacteria.
