This herb has been consumed throughout history as a food source and has been used in traditional medicine for various conditions including asthma, joint and muscle pain, ear and eye infections. However, the degree to which this herb acts as a nootropic is still up for debate. Some studies have suggested that it doesn't provide adequate cognitive enhancement, but other sources claim that long term administration improves attention, mental clarity, executive functioning and long-term memory. This can be attributed to its ability to enhance circulation in the brain and body and provides feeling of natural energy and mental focus through modulation of certain neurotransmitters.
|Lion's Mane is a mushroom (Yamabushitake) that has been used in Chinese traditional medicine for hundreds of years now. It is believed that various properties of the mushroom act a antioxidant. Moreover, it is now recognized as one of the best natural nootropics available as it increases Nerve Growth Factor levels in the brain, increasing neuronal growth rates and improving synaptic plasticity. Some researchers have suggested that this mushroom is able to improve mental functioning in those with impaired cognition. However, the long-term effects of this mushroom aren't well documented.|
