ALCOHOL and WATER dual extractions
Lion's Mane dual extractions are said to contain alcohol soluble and water-soluble compounds (see below) from Lion's Mane mushrooms. Alcohol based extracts are said to contain properties such as triterpenoids (anti-inflammatories) plus hot water extractions extract polysaccharides and Beta-glucans (immune system stimulants). Handcrafted in small batches, this product contains 100% organic ingredients. Dual Extractions of Lion's Mane mushrooms contains immune fighting properties among many other health benefits.
Why Lion's Mane mushroom?
Studies suggest that lion’s mane mushrooms may help relieve mild symptoms of anxiety and depression, can speed up recovery time from nervous system injuries, has been shown to protect against stomach and intestinal ulcers in rodents, can reduce the risk of heart disease in several ways, can help lower blood sugar and reduce diabetic nerve pain in mice, can kill cancer cells and slow the spread of tumors, contains powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds that may help reduce the impact of chronic illness, and have been shown to have immune-boosting effects in rodents, but much more research is needed.
Studies have found that lion’s mane mushrooms contain two special compounds that can stimulate the growth of brain cells: hericenones and erinacines.
Additionally, animal studies have found that lion’s mane may help protect against Alzheimer’s disease, a degenerative brain disease that causes progressive memory loss.
In fact, lion’s mane mushroom and its extracts have been shown to reduce symptoms of memory loss in mice, as well as prevent neuronal damage caused by amyloid-beta plaques, which accumulate in the brain during Alzheimer’s disease. It appears to boost mental functioning.
A study in older adults with mild cognitive impairment found that consuming 3 grams of powdered lion’s mane mushroom daily for four months significantly improved mental functioning, but these benefits disappeared when supplementation stopped.
The ability of lion’s mane mushroom to promote nerve growth and protect the brain from Alzheimer’s-related damage may explain some of its beneficial effects on brain health.
However, it’s important to note that most of the research has been conducted in animals or in test tubes. Therefore, more human studies are needed.
While there are many causes of anxiety and depression, chronic inflammation could be a major contributing factor.
New animal research has found that lion’s mane mushroom extract has anti-inflammatory effects that can reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Other studies have found that lion’s mane extract can also help regenerate brain cells and improve the functioning of the hippocampus, a region of the brain responsible for processing memories and emotional responses.
Researchers believe that improved functioning of the hippocampus may explain the reductions in anxious and depressive behaviors in mice given these extracts.
While these animal studies are promising, more research in humans is needed.
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.
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.
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.
Lion’s mane extract may also help reduce the severity of brain damage after a stroke.
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.
