The Real Magic Mushroom

Author Myke Elevated / Category: Ingredient Education / Published: Dec 11, 2021

Stress, Sleep, and Reducing Inflammation.

 

Lion’s Mane has been on a bit of an ascension in the cognitive enhancement world. Though. many people don’t know it has some broader uses. It can help with other aspects of health and wellness such as stress, sleep, and reducing inflammation. This magical mushroom has also recently been studied in the likes of college students and the elderly to get a sense of its potency and effect, all while social media takes hold of anything to help with focus and motivation for the A.D.D.

One of the lesser known benefits of Lion’s Mane is that it has helped show a reduction in anxiety, while promoting proper wakefulness, for those taking it in the morning or early afternoon. It's interesting compared to some more sedative options that may make a user drowsy or foggy. There also has been some experimentation with its use in the evening for those with sleep issues, for example not being able to fall into the deeper sleep states fast enough, which has been associated with poor health. Low quality sleep even in excess has a very low effect on recovery and proper functioning for the body over time.

QUALITY OVER QUANTITY

Again lack of quality sleep or an excess of poor quality sleep both have serious deleterious health consequences. Less than 6 hours or more than 10 hours of sleep are possible signals the body is not operating properly. The goal is to have longer, uninterupted REM sleep. The REM cycle, referring to the delta wave length in which you are more likely to be lucid while sleeping. This has been studied to be the deepest and most restful state of sleep. With it's attributions to brain health and improved synapse response, achieving detla state is something that the cognitive impact of Lions mane can also help with.
