"My health was declining rapidly and the doctors couldn't figure out why..."
Over the course of 3 grueling months I went through multiple colonoscopies, upper endoscopies, and $40,000 worth of medical testing.
The pain in my stomach was so intense I could barely eat...
Eventually, a talented naturopath out of Solona Beach, CA discovered I had a parasite in my gut.
Shout out to Dr. Lauren Noel and her clinic, Shine Natural Medicine.
LONG and scary story short - with her help I was able to kill the parasite.
Now I wish my story was all sunshine and roses from there, but unfortunately, when my stomach recovered a new problem arose.
My brain felt broken 🤕 I couldn’t focus... And I was forgetting where I parked my car - far too often for it to be normal...
Matt instructed me to take Lion's Mane Mushroom Extracts to repair my memory and beat my brain fog...
Naturally, I wanted to understand the science behind why lion’s mane makes me feel so good…
If you're like me before I tried lion's mane then you're probably thinking...
"Okay Luke, I'm glad you’re feeling better, but what does the scientific literature say about lion's mane?"
Well, I wondered the same thing before I tried it... And to be honest, I was even in disbelief AFTER I started taking it and feeling the results. I was determined to find out why we were having such amazing mental clarity from taking a simple mushroom extract.
So I did some digging through the literature and here’s what I discovered:
FREE GIFT: I put together a 14 page report on the science backed health benefits of lion's mane mushrooms. Use the button below to get the report for FREE plus 41% off your first order of lion's mane extracts.
Lion's Mane Extracts are scientifically proven to improve cognitive performance, support memory, and enhance brain health.
Here's how it works: Lion’s Mane Mushroom Extracts boosts your natural production of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF).
In case you're not familiar with NGF, Nerve Growth Factor stimulates the growth of new brain cells, maintains the health of brain cells, and helps repair damaged brain cells.
And it's actually quite simple to understand why so many people love using lion's mane for focus/memory...
Anything that supports the health of brain cell health and brain cell communication will support memory and enhance overall cognitive function.
So it makes total sense why me and my family felt the brain fog clearing more and more every day that we took our lion's mane...
See, when I visited the world leading brain research facility (The Amen Clinics) the neuroscientists explained to me that our NGF levels decrease naturally as part of the aging process.
This can lead to a decrease in cognitive function and can contribute to neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease. In addition, chronic stress and disorders such as depression and anxiety can reduce the levels of NGF in the brain.
Lastly, I learned that some people may have genetic mutations that affect the production of NGF which make fighting brain fog and maintaining memories an uphill battle.
I suspect that me and my family fall into the category of genetic disposition towards NGF deficiencies based on our shared brain problems. We decided as a family, that we would do everything it takes to support our brain health the best we can, naturally, so we never need to reach a point where medication is needed.
Lion's Mane Mushroom Extracts Are a Safe, Natural Way to Boost NGF Levels and Support Your Memory, Mood, And Focus
So I asked my mom to log her experience with our lion's mane mushroom extracts, and I'm happy to say my mom experienced the same results as me, but even better.
Here's her report:
"I thought about trying lion's mane extracts after seeing Luke's brain come back online after struggling with brain fog and memory loss. I'll admit I was really skeptical at first but I saw the difference it made in his life so I was willing to try.
About 30 minutes after taking it, I felt the effects kick in. It was as though the foggy feeling in my head just evaporated. The mental fog and stress I'd been carrying around vanished too. Soon, I reached a level of alertness and concentration I hadn't experience in years. It reminded me of how I felt in college when I was focused in a class of a subject I was truly passionate about.
It became so much easier for me to ignore distractions and outside noises.
Best of all, I didn't feel jittery or anxious like I get with the other brain supplements I've tried. Just energized."
"I've tried other supplements before that were good at the start but then died off after around a week so I was a bit concerned that lion's mane would be the same. Not the case here. I am feeling more focused and mentally stronger than before. I managed to put in a solid 10 hour work day yesterday and still had energy left at the end to do yoga. I'm 68 years old! I'd never been able to do that in my 40's! Lion's mane improved my ability to focus and function, and I haven't changed my diet, exercise, or taken up meditation.
As far as I'm aware these results have been only from Lion's Mane Extracts."
Week 3: I'm pleasantly surprised!
"Even after 2 weeks (into my third) I'm still feeling the effects of Lion's Mane. Previously, I had problems starting and completing tasks. I always felt like I needed to lie down after a few hours of working.
Lion's mane has me laser-focused on the things on my to-do list, and I'm actually getting stuff completely finished before moving on to the next thing. I've noticed my stress levels going down, and I'm controlling my emotions so much better without losing focus.
I expected the results to diminish around the third week but my energy levels haven't dipped at all. I remain focused and alert throughout the day and it seems to be getting better by the day.
Week 4: I'm wishing I found this stuff sooner!
"My mind is crystal clear and I'm able to recall stored memories with near perfect accuracy. I'm not going to pretend I have a photographic memory now but I never did before. Just a few weeks ago, I used to always forget where I placed my keys and other little things. It's unbelievable how much better my memory is functioning now.
It's not like I became a genius overnight after taking lion's mane, but it's definitely improved my memory and the speed at which I process new information. And my outlook on life is simply brighter :)"
