Shaggy and white, as the name suggests this mushroom closely resembles a lion's mane. This mushroom contains bioactive substances that have beneficial effects on the body, especially the brain.
Lion's mane has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a powerful adaptogen and natural nootropic. A superfood like no other it supports memory, focus, nerve health, creativity and mood.
In fact, studies have shown significant improvements in cognition in under 16 weeks at a mere dose of 3g per day. This result was in healthy individuals though cessation of cognitive decline and improvement has also been seen in individuals suffering from mild cognitive impairment.
