Lion’s Mane mushroom has recently emerged to fame due to its specified therapeutic effects on the brain and nervous system. Not only is it used as a cognitive tonic, but also as a protective and restorative agent that was once reserved only for royalty.
Today, clinical research has shown it contains active compounds known to stimulate the production of two essential compounds: NGF (nerve growth factor), and BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor). These neuropeptides govern the life cycle of neurons, their growth, proliferation, and protection. In addition, Lion’s Mane mushroom supports your digestive health, or gut, which has earned it the title of a “second brain”, due to the connection of gut and brain via the vagus nerve. Medicinal mushrooms such as Lion’s Mane also contain unique polysaccharides beneficial to immunoregulation.
Helvetia’s mushroom spagyric extracts are dual extracted to achieve a full spectrum of both water and alcohol soluble active compounds.
Helvetia’s LION'S MANE spagyric extract is packed in vegan, enteric-coated capsules. These are specially designed to remain intact as they pass through the stomach and its acids, thus allowing the body to maximize absorption of the active compounds in the intestines. This delivery system significantly increases bioavailability as compared to conventional capsules or solid extracts.
