"Lion's Mane" Fungi?
Anyone ever take this? I bought some – some random source said it was one of the only foods that was proven to stimulate neurogenesis (the most attractive thing to an aging brain!)
So I bought way too much and then… didn’t do my homework. Any experience?
Wow what a good question I will buy some myself, thanks IJC.
Haven’t taken it, and not very interested in it so long there’s no more research on it. All I know about is this study: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18758067 which seems promising, but not conclusive.
I have no idea if it works, but if you’re so concerned with neurogenesis you might as well keep eating them for good measure and/or placebo.
I’ve been doing so for some time, and the little things are quite tasty as well…
If you wanna know whether mushies in general work well, they are touted as some serious immune-boosting shet. I’ve had experience with paul stamet’s mushy products, fungi perfecti. I liked what I bought though I didn’t give it a real serious day-after-day test. Chaga is supposed to be some serious stuff, try some of that if you like the lion’s mane.
It was a good question man, not like “I don’t know if I should dump my boyfriend/kill my dog/get a job/etc.”
