If you’re finding you’re a little more forgetful than you used to be, and losing the car keys is a regular event, you might want to try Lion’s Mane mushroom. Although aging is a primary cause of memory loss, stress, anxiety and lack of sleep also contribute greatly, according to Harvard researchers.
A study published in Biomedical Research (2011) examined the effects of Lion’s Mane on brain function in mice. The results showed that it helped protect against memory problems caused by the buildup of amyloid beta—a substance that forms the brain plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease. While this was an animal study, it is likely the same effect applies to humans.
In addition to memory enhancement, Lion’s Mane has a wide array of cognitive benefits, including the improvement of focus and concentration, and reduction of depression and anxiety.
