As science delves more deeply into the fascinating world of fungi, the human benefits of mushrooms are becoming astounding. The fruiting body is the part of the mushroom that grows above ground and is abundant in beta-D-glucans, the powerful medicinal component in mushrooms known for its modulatory impact on immunity.
Lion’s mane has been touted as the “brain mushroom”, not only because of its resemblance to the human brain, but also due to its potential cognitive health benefits. Studies have shown lion’s mane’s ability to augment NGF (nerve growth factor), which is essential for supporting multiple areas of brain health and mental performance.
