Lion's Mane | Cognitive Improvement Human Trials

In 2009, a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was performed on Japanese men and women from age 50-80 who had been diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment. Over the 16 weeks of the study, one group was given 1000mg of powdered Lion's Mane each day. Throughout the trial, the Lion's Mane group showed significantly increased cognitive function scores. In the 4 weeks after the study, the Lion's Mane group's cognitive function scores also declined as they were no longer adding the mushroom to their diet. The results of this study indicate that Lion's Mane can measurably increase cognitive function when it is added to daily diets.
