LION’S MANE: Hericium erinaceus
Research has found that lion's mane may protect against dementia, reduce mild symptoms of anxiety and depression and help repair nerve damage. It also has strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immune-boosting abilities and been shown to lower the risk of heart disease, cancer, ulcers and diabetes in animals.
Lion's mane can boost your focus, too. Reduced inflammation improves blood flow, which provides your brain with more oxygen. The antioxidants in lion's mane also promote learning and memory, possibly by strengthening your brain cells and stimulating the growth of new neurons.
