Although recent research on Lion’s Mane supplement
has focused on its powerful effect on healing nerve tissue,
in Traditional Chinese Medicine Lion's Mane Mushroom
was used primarily for stomach conditions and cancers
of the digestive organs. Ying reports that pills of this
mushroom are used in the treatment of gastric and esophageal
Modern studies have affirmed the validity of traditional
applications of Hericium /Lions Mane. Studies reported
positive findings in the treatment of atrophic gastritis.
Also Lion's Mane has an ameliorating effect on hepatoma
(a tumor of the liver) with an increased life expectancy
for treated patients.
The Anti-Dementia effect of Lion's Mane mushroom and
its clinical application.
Japanese scientists found Lion's Mane/ Hericium anti-dementia
properties. Their research has demonstrated that the
* A double-blind, placebo-controlled trial showed improved
* Stimulated nerve growth factor in an in vitro experiment
with human astrocytoma cells
* Stimulated nerve cells
* Stimulated myelination in an in vitro experiment.
Scientific research on components of Lion's Mane mushroom
(Hericium erinaceum) and their biological activities
in cell culture is a case where positive antidementia
results in the laboratory have been confirmed by analogous
results in human use.
