Lion's Mane Mushroom
Lion's Mane mushroom, also known as the “brain mushroom”, has been traditionally used in Far East Asia for centuries as a medicinal tonic for the brain to improve memory and concentration. Containing compounds that may support nerve and brain health, Lion’s Mane has been shown to stimulate the production of the Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) in the brain. This plays a vital role in the growth, maintenance, and repair of nerve cells in a part of the brain associated with thinking, learning and emotions (1) (2).
Chaga mushroom is known to many as the “immunity mushroom” or the “king of mushrooms”, and for good reason; it’s the highest source of natural antioxidants on Earth! Antioxidants are commonly known to support the immune system of the body, and chaga mushrooms also contain bioactive compounds that are believed to have immune-stimulating effects.
Cordyceps mushroom, also known as the “energy mushroom”, can positively influence the production and utilisation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the organic compound that supports energy production on a molecular level within the body. Thus, with greater production of ATP, means more energy to generate an increase in strength and power output, for better performance in high intensity exercise (3).
Maca Root, also an adaptogen, is extensively used as a herbal supplement for conditions such as erectile dysfunction and menopausal symptoms (5) and there’s experimental
scientific evidence to show that maca has nutritional, energizer, and fertility and libido enhancer properties, and protects skin against ultraviolet radiation (6).
