DO YOU USE LION’S MANE MUSHROOM?⁣ Lion's mane mushroom has rapidly grown in popularity in recent years. The main reason is how Lion's Mane increases nerve growth factor. Despite this, there are some men who have found it may have lowered their libido.

Key Facts

It is well known that Lion’s mane mushroom can influence your brain function. ⁣⁣
It does this via many mechanisms, however, the main one is that it can significantly increase Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) secretion in the brain.⁣⁣
This increases brain cell survival, repairs damage and supports memory function. In fact, increased NGF levels can even enhance smell, vision, dream recall and verbal fluency! (Delcroix et al., 2003).⁣⁣
Lion's Mane is a positive allosteric modulator (enhancer) of cannabinoid receptors (Trovato et al., 2016). This may mean that it can strengthen the effects of cannabis or CBD oil. ⁣
You read that right. Most men are aware of this. Lion’s Mane does contain some pretty strong DHT blockers, which can cause side effects very similar to the hair loss drug Finesteride (Fujita et al., 2005). DHT blockers are notorious for causing sexual side effects, and this must be noted by all users, women as well. ⁣⁣

Lion’s mane is a very powerful medicinal mushroom. It is interesting to see the potential synergistic effects of Lion’s Mane alongside cannabis. Keep in mind, smoking cannabis may actually lead to cognitive issues in the long run.
