Lion’s mane mushroom estenosis lumbar – unparalleled benefits for your brain and

Lion’s mane is nature’s gift to your nervous system! It’s the only mushroom possessing not one but TWO potent estenosis lumbar tratamiento nerve growth factors, showing potential benefits for parkinson’s and alzheimer’s disease, mild cognitive impairment, multiple sclerosis, leg cramps, anxiety and more.

What if there were one natural treatment that could restore estenosis lumbar tratamiento brain function, regrow damaged nerves and reverse the progression of multiple sclerosis? There may be! Lion’s mane mushroom has been used medicinally in asia for estenosis lumbar tratamiento centuries, but for some reason it’s one of the best-kept secrets in the west.

Besides being called "lion’s mane," hericium erinaceus, is known by several other names including bearded tooth mushroom, bearded hedgehog, bearded tooth fungus and others. In japan, it’s known as yamabushitake, which means “mountain priest mushroom.” it has a variety of other names, depending on the country.

The science about lion’s mane is in its infancy, but evidence already points to unparalleled therapeutic benefits for numerous estenosis lumbar tratamiento diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system, summarized in the table below, and the list seems to be growing by the day.

According to world renown fungi expert paul stamets, lion’s mane may be the first “smart mushroom,” providing support specifically for cognitive function, including memory, attention and creativity. It is reported that buddhist monks have consumed lion’s mane tea for centuries before meditation in order to estenosis lumbar tratamiento enhance their powers of concentration.

In one of the few human studies to date, older adults with mild cognitive impairment were given 250 mg estenosis lumbar tratamiento powdered lion’s mane three times a day for 16 weeks and estenosis lumbar tratamiento compared to another group receiving a placebo. The lion’s mane group scored significantly higher on the cognitive function estenosis lumbar tratamiento scale compared with placebo, with no adverse effects. This study should prompt scientists to investigate the therapeutic efficacy estenosis lumbar tratamiento of these fungi for dementia patients.

One of the reasons for his mushroom’s exceptional neuroprotective powers is its ability to stimulate synthesis estenosis lumbar tratamiento of nerve growth factor (NGF). NGF is a protein that plays a major role in estenosis lumbar tratamiento the maintenance, survival and regeneration of neurons in both your central and estenosis lumbar tratamiento peripheral nervous systems. Lion’s mane contains two unique types of compounds, hericenones and erinacines. The erinacines found in hericium erinaceus mycelium are among the estenosis lumbar tratamiento most powerful NGF inducers in the natural world, able to cross your blood-brain barrier and stimulate production of new neurons within the estenosis lumbar tratamiento brain itself.

With many neurological disorders, the brain is unable to manufacture NGF—in fact, this is thought to be one of the primary mechanisms estenosis lumbar tratamiento underlying alzheimer’s disease. Making matters worse, myelin sheaths and the blood-brain barrier prevent your body from accessing external sources of estenosis lumbar tratamiento NGF, and this contributes to the progressive deterioration of brain neurons estenosis lumbar tratamiento over time.

Lion’s mane is the only mushroom to demonstrate significant potential estenosis lumbar tratamiento for nerve regeneration. In a groundbreaking 2014 study, an oral extract proved effective in promoting peripheral nerve regeneration estenosis lumbar tratamiento after surgically-induced crush-injuries in rats.

NGF also plays important roles in myelination, including protecting oligodendrocytes (myelin-producing cells) and the production of BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor). In 2003, lion’s mane extract was found to stimulate nerve myelination , which was confirmed by a later study (2013). This finding has huge implications for helping individuals with multiple estenosis lumbar tratamiento sclerosis, a disease characterized by progressive demyelination.

As an aside, there is actually another mushroom that may prove helpful with estenosis lumbar tratamiento demyelination— phellinus igniarius , otherwise known as willow bracket. One study found its extract suppressed demyelination as well as estenosis lumbar tratamiento suppressing many of the immune cells active (or overactive) in multiple sclerosis.

Lion’s mane has also been shown to reduce beta-amyloid plaques. Beta-amyloid plaques are proteins that form in the fatty membranes estenosis lumbar tratamiento that surround nerve cells, interfering with neurotransmission. These plaques are thought to play a role in neurodegenerative estenosis lumbar tratamiento diseases such as alzheimer’s and parkinson’s.

In a compelling animal study, mice were injected with neurotoxic peptides (to induce plaque formation), in order to assess the effects of lion’s mane on the type of amyloid plaque seen in estenosis lumbar tratamiento alzheimer’s sufferers. As the plaque developed, the mice lost their ability to memorize the maze, but when they were fed a diet containing lion’s mane mushroom, their performance in the maze significantly improved. In addition to regaining their former cognitive skills, they gained NEW cognitive skills—something akin to curiosity, as measured by greater time spent exploring novel objects compared estenosis lumbar tratamiento to familiar ones. The reduction of beta amyloid plaques in the mushroom-fed mice was remarkable. Lion’s mane also shows potential in the treatment of anxiety estenosis lumbar tratamiento and depression . In a study involving menopausal women, the mushroom reduced depression and anxiety by some mechanism other estenosis lumbar tratamiento than its NGF-enhancing properties. The effects were particularly strong in lowering anxiety, reducing feelings of “irritation” and enhancing concentration. So the buddhist monks were right!

Although the mushroom’s availability is limited to hardwood forests and a few estenosis lumbar tratamiento gourmet food shops, kits are available that allow you to grow your own estenosis lumbar tratamiento lion’s mane at home. Lion’s mane mushrooms are 20 percent protein and can be estenosis lumbar tratamiento prepared using standard culinary techniques, just like any other edible mushroom. Mushroom forager describes this oddball’s appearance as sort of like a “faceless hedgehog,” or a truffula tree out of the lorax— so, they’re rather easy to spot. Does it taste like chicken? No, in this case lobster… Or so they say, as I’ve not partaken myself.

You’ll will find lion’s mane in the forests of north america, europe and asia during the summer and fall, typically attached to dead or dying hardwood trees and logs, including maple, beech, oak, birch, walnut and sycamore. Lion’s mane is also widely available as a supplement and estenosis lumbar tratamiento comes in powders and liquid extracts. Some serious allergic reactions have been reported, so please take ample precautions.
