Traditional use of Lion's Mane

Various studies on Lion's Mane mention the following health-promoting compounds:
- Polysaccharides and bèta-D-glucan (read more about this special bioactive compound in this blog LINK NAAR BLOG POLYSJAG+BETAGLUC)
- Antioxidants: Lion’s Mane is 1 of the 4 mushrooms with the highest values of antioxidants
- Is a so-called 'nooptropic' (chemical or natural substances that can contribute to the maintenance of healthy brain functions)
- Appears to stimulate the important brain compounds NGF and BDNF
Nerve Growth Factor (NGF)
It seems as if Lion's Mane stimulates the brain to produce more nerve growth factor (NGF). These neuropeptides are responsible for the production, growth and maintenance of neurons in the brain. As we age, neuropeptide activity decreases, leading to deterioration of brain function. NGF helps keeping the brain vital and healthy.
Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF)
BDNF stimulates new brain cell production and strengthens the existing brain cells.
Several studies show that BDNF helps to increase brain plasticity. This keeps the brain cells resilient.
