Say hello to my little friend. Lions mane 🍄🦁. So tasty and nutritious, this may just may be my favorite mushroom. I can't stop learning about mushrooms and this is so interesting to me! Ima geek out 👇
Lion's Mane (Hericium ERINaceus) 😉has a shit ton of beneficial properties including anticancer, antimicrobial, antihyperglycemic, antioxidant, antidepressant, and immune modulation! The compounds it contains Erinacines and hericenones synthesize nerve growth factor, which causes nerve regeneration and maintenance! NGF itself cannot pass through the blood-brain barrier when injected, but compounds from Lion's Mane can. How cool is that? Lion's mane has also been shown to decrease production of amyloid-beta protein, which is implicated in plaque creation in the brain of Alzheimer's disease. It might even become an alternative therapy for depression because it works on the same pathways as antidepressants. It's thought to restore neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine and inhibit pro-inflammatory cytokines. I'm just scratching the service here! This is truly a medicinal mushroom!
