Dried lions mane mushroom formally known as Hericium erinaceus or as I personally love to call them, gold little nuggets.
Lions mane is a delicious and functional food. It is incredibly beneficial for our nervous system health due to it being neurotrophic. Lions mane induces Nerve Growth Factor(NGF) in nerve cells.
done at the department of biology and biotechnology at the University of
Pavia in Italy showed that lions mane improves the recognition memory
in mice. “Two-month oral supplementation with H. erinaceus reversed the
age-decline of recognition memory. Proliferating cell nuclear antigen
(PCNA) and doublecortin (DCX) immunohistochemistry in the hippocampus
and cerebellum in treated mice supported a positive effect of H.
erinaceus on neurogenesis in frail mice.”
hippocampus is part of our limbic system. Which helps with declarative
memory, spatial memory and is also where our short-term memories are
turned into long-term.
memory also known as explicit memory is a type of long term memory
relating to remembering data, facts and events. Spatial memory is
associated with pathways and routes, such as remembering how to get from
point A to point B.
Damage to the hippocampus is detrimental. Leading to Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, depression and so on.
Dried mushrooms are a wonderful staple, as you don’t have to worry about using them before they ‘go bad’.
grow our mushrooms with appreciation and dehydrate them with care. Grinding up this mushroom right before use is best, added to any
dish with ease.
