No system in the human body works alone. Everything is connected, which means that a healthy mind makes for a healthy body.
Organic Lion’s Mane is a performance supplement that comes from a mushroom - a mushroom that grows to look like a white lion’s mane - and it supports mental and physical health. Since it supports the health of the brain, that means it supports the all-around health of the body… and that’s great news whether you’re an athlete or simply someone trying to get through this year.
Much like other supplements, the effects of Lion’s Mane stay consistent as long as your consumption of the substance is consistent. By taking it just once, there may not be any long-term improvements to your mental state.
The farthest-reaching mental benefit has to do with cognitive sharpness. By consuming Lion’s Mane on a regular basis, your brain can more easily comprehend and retain information.*
Lion’s Mane also has the potential to protect the brain against dementia. Dementia begins when the brain loses its capability to create and form new connections, which is where Lion’s Mane comes in. The supplement promotes nerve growth, which may protect the brain from Alzheimer’s-related damage.*
Lion’s Mane also has the power to help with mood regulation. It’s not going to make you extremely happy or place you at either end of the spectrum, but it has the capability to even you out. It’s also been known to relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety.* Depression itself, though it’s a mental roadblock, can affect the body physically as well - in more ways than one. So, by taking Lion’s Mane to aid with depression, you’re indirectly helping your body physically as well.
Strong mental health is imperative for the body to heal physically, and Organic Lion’s Mane can act as a huge aid. Its first physical benefit has to do with nerve regeneration - specifically, the nerves located around the spinal cord. It’s been suggested that Lion’s Mane can help people who have undergone trauma by both boosting mental health and smoothing out the healing process.*
The digestive system is another place in which Lion’s Mane is useful. It supports the digestive tract in general and acts as preventative care for ulcers*.
Lion’s Mane can also impact physical energy in general. One of depression’s most difficult (and most well-known) symptoms is that it depletes your energy levels. But with Lion’s Mane performance supplements on your side, you can meet it head-on. By improving your mental health, your energy will come back in droves.*
