How Lion’s Mane Mushroom Supports Neurogenesis In Your Brain

Neuroscientists used to believe that “adult neurogenesis”—an adult brain’s ability to grow new neurons—was impossible. The old belief was that once the brain reached maturity around age 25, the number of neurons was fixed. It wasn’t until 1998, when researchers found new brain cells growing in an adult hippocampus, that they discovered that neurogenesis continues throughout our lifetime.

Lion’s Mane is an edible mushroom that has long been valued for its potent health benefits—especially when it comes to brain health. Dubbed “nature’s nutrient for neurons,” the lion’s mane constituents have a unique ability to stimulate nerve growth factor (NGF) within the brain thus stimulating the growth of new neurons.

Since the initial discovery of neurogenesis in adult brains, researchers have made a number of other fascinating discoveries—one of the most notable being that an edible mushroom called lion’s mane can actually stimulate neurogenesis. Today we’re going to break down this fascinating topic into more bite-sized pieces and explore how one of the world’s most unique mushrooms can play a part in brain wellness and growth.
