Mycoformulas Memory supports your nervous system with four medicinal mushrooms that have been shown to safely and sustainably promote healthy brain function. Memory features Hericium erinaceus, a mushroom more commonly called Lion's Mane because of its unique fruit body. Lion's Mane is a delectable and medicinal with native habitat throughout North America, East Asia and Europe. Native Americans applied Lion's Mane topically to stop bleeding, and traditional Chinese doctors prescribed it to help keep the digestive tract healthy. Recent research has revealed that Lion's Mane enhances immune system performance and neurological function and is an effective agent against inflammation and tumor growth. The death of neurons in the brain and the lack of an important protein called Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) have been linked to many modern neurological problems. Attempts made by conventional medicine to administer synthesized NGF orally and intravenously have been unsuccessful due to the NGF protein's inability to pass through the blood-brain barrier, a protective sheath surrounding the brain. The mycelium and fruit body of Lion's Mane contain unique low-weight molecules called erinacines and hericenones. Amazingly, these naturally occurring mushroom molecules are bioavailable to the human body and brain through dietary supplementation. Once digested, they are small enough to safely pass through the blood-brain barrier and stimulate the production of NGF from within the brain. Before the discovery of this significant nutritional value found in Lion's Mane, most modern medical practitioners believed that it was not possible to stimulate the production of new neurons through the ingestion of foodstuffs.
In addition to being one of the best natural brain boosters around, Lion's Mane is also a rich source of protein, potassium, complex carbohydrates, iron, and fiber -- a super food if there ever was one.
