The Memory of a Lion?
Posted by SHELLEY MANTEI
For centuries, Buddhist monks have consumed a special tea before meditating in order to enhance their powers of concentration and focus. In clinical studies, the ingredient in that tea has been proven to also boost cognitive skills and stimulate the synthesis of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF).
NGF plays a major role in the maintenance, survival, and regeneration of neurons in your brain. In Alzheimer’s patients and other memory loss diseases, however, the brain is unable to manufacture NGF. NGF also plays a significant role in the production of BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor).
Dr. Joseph Maroon, a world renowned neurosurgeon, tells us that BDNF is responsible for the creation of new brain cells and neuroplasticity; the ability for the brain to regenerate and heal itself. So that same secret Buddhist monk tea that enhances the production of NGF also stimulates the production of the brain molecule BDNF. What does this mean? In no uncertain terms, this means the increased ability to remember names, recognize old friends, and recall words.
So what exactly is in this “brain boosting’ Buddhist monk tea?
Lion’s Mane Mushroom. Lion’s Mane Mushroom is native to Japan and other Asian countries and is 100% natural. It contains two unique compounds, hericenone and erinacine…the most powerful NGF inducers in the world. In fact, these two Lion’s Mane ingredients boost NGF levels up to 500%!
In clinical studies, patients given an extract of Lion’s Mane demonstrated significant improvements in:
- Day to Day Memory
- Cognitive tests
- Massive growth of new neurons
- Reduction in anxiety and depression
- Enhanced concentration
Lion’s Mane also reduces beta-amyloid plaque, which plays a role in Alzheimer’s.
