Which mushrooms have useful properties for Alzheimer’s?
The below mushrooms that have the best results for the brain support. They help with the regeneration of neuronal connections and have a high antioxidant profile to combat the premature aging and deterioration of brain cells.
Regenerates tissues that favor neuronal connections and improves brain function
The action of Lion’s mane is based both on its ability to regenerate myelin and on the regeneration of new synapses thanks to its content in hericenones and erinacines, which act as agents that enhance the nerve growth factor (NGF).
The extract of Lion’s mane promotes the neuronal stability and the normal development of the brain cells without showing toxic effects or damage in these cells.
In some study performed in people with mild cognitive impairment, an improvement in cognitive functions was observed after the ingestion of the lion’s mane.
Powerful antioxidant. Reduces cell aging
Reishi has the most anti-aging effects of all the mushrooms. Free radicals, especially reactive oxygen species, are capable of oxidizing molecules that result in cell death or tissue damage and Reishi counteracts this damaging process with its potent antioxidant properties.
