Lion’s Mane Mushroom Proven As Anxiety and Depression Treatment | Crystalline Nutrients


Lion’s Mane mushroom is a medicinal food with
many benefits that has been used for centuries and has now been shown to be an effective
natural depression and anxiety treatment. A placebo-controlled human clinical study
took 30 female patients to investigate the effects of Lion’s Mane mushroom on menopause,
depression, sleep quality and anxiety. Of those who finished the study, 14 took a
placebo and 12 took Lion’s Mane mushroom extract that was baked into cookies. 2 grams of Lion’s Mane mushroom per day were
consumed and after four weeks of use, a reduction in depression and anxiety were reported by
the lions mane mushroom group! This study gives rise to the growing belief
among scientists that depression and anxiety has less to do with the “serotonin hypothesis”
and possibly more to do with the “neurogenic theory of depression and anxiety.” In essence, higher rates of neurogenesis could
prove to equal higher rates of happiness. Lion’s mane mushroom is often used as a food
and supplement to support brain health, memory, focus, clarity and recall. It does so by helping the brain produce a
compound called Nerve Growth Factor, or NGF for short. As a protein, Nerve Growth Factor helps to
repair damaged neurons and even create new neurons! The implications for possible therapeutic
benefits of Lion’s Mane mushroom extend into other nervous system-related diseases like
Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and dementia. For specific books and products check the
