Improve Mood and Mental Stability with DXN Lion’s Mane Mushroom
Studies show that lion’s mane mushroom improves mood disorders. In 2010, researchers examined the effects of lion’s mane mushroom on 30 women over a four-week period. The participants were randomly assigned to a test group or a control group, and they were given lion’s mane mushroom cookies or placebo cookies (science!). At the end of the four weeks, the lion’s mane mushroom group reported a reduction in depression scores.
Lion’s mane mushroom alleviate mood disorders by reducing inflammation. A growing body of research links mental illness and brain inflammation, and lion’s mane has been shown to reduce the production of inflammatory proteins.
Lion’s mane can boost your focus, too. Reduced inflammation improves blood flow, which provides your brain with more oxygen. More oxygen in your brain means better brain performance, period. The antioxidants in lion’s mane also promote learning and memory, possibly by strengthening your brain cells and stimulating the growth of new neurons.
There are multiple ways that Lion’s Mane functions to benefit the brain. For example, because Lion’s mane is an anti-inflammatory, it also reduces inflammation in the brain. Inflammation in the brain is harmful. For the occasional bout of brain inflammation, a person may experience a migraine, headache, or brain fog. But for chronic brain inflammatory conditions, like multiple sclerosis, a person may experience a loss of cognitive function overtime. So Lion’s Mane may help by reducing the inflammation in the brain.
Additionally, Lion’s Mane helps the brain by stimulating nerve cell growth, development, and repair. When the number of neurons in the bran would decrease, and the brain would start showing symptoms that are very similar to Alzheimer’s disease.
A 2012 study conducted in Malaysia found that consuming lion’s mane mushroom could actually regenerate damaged cells from peripheral nerve injury, an injury affecting the delicate tissue between your brain and spinal cord.
By increasing this growth, it could potentially be possible to slow or reverse cell degeneration in the brain — the main characteristic of diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia are terrible illnesses that not only affect the sufferer but also their families and friends. One of the biggest draws of Lion’s Mane is its neuroprotective properties. Lion’s mane mushroom can be used to help protect against the onset of dementia. In other words, it has the potential to help retain mental functions such as memory and general cognition. These mushrooms contain two compounds, called hericenones and erinacines, that are known to help stimulate brain cell growth.
Mental health conditions like depression and anxiety can make it significantly more difficult to function in everyday life. Lion’s mane has been studied in mice for its ability to improve mood. Some studies have shown that Lion’s Mane mushroom can improve the functioning of the hippocampus, because of its ability to stimulate brain cell growth.
