Cognitive impairment can vastly affect people's everyday life as well as that of their loved ones. People suffering with cognitive impairment have difficulty remembering and learning new things, trouble concentrating and have a hard time making decisions. They may be confused, lack coordination, have a loss of short or long-term memory, and have impaired judgment (2011). These symptoms range from mild to severe and can unfortunately be progressive. While there is no known cure, there is a wonderful medicinal mushroom that can improve these symptoms and prevent future progression.
Lion's mane (or yamabushitake) is a powerful mushroom used in Chinese medicine to treat memory loss and cognitive impairment. This unique looking mushroom, resembling a lion's mane, contains hericenones and erinacines - special compounds which stimulate brain cell growth. This special mushroom is especially beneficial for patients with Alzheimer's or dementia, as it slows progression of these conditions, promotes nerve growth, protects the brain, and prevents nerve damage (Julson, 2018).
A 2009 study proved lion's mane's significant impact on improving cognitive function in an elderly population. Cognitive scores were vastly improved in the population taking yamabushitake versus a placebo, and no adverse effects were reported (Mori et al, 2009).
To get the full benefits of this amazing mushroom, it should be taken continuously on a daily basis at the dosage of three grams, taken in powder form in a capsule.
