Lion's mane is a phenomenal compound that's been used for thousands of years as a tonic herb, especially in China. Though like a lot of other herbal medicines and natural compounds I've discussed on this podcast before, there's now an incredible amount of science pointing to the benefits of lion's mane on human health, which I've decided to dedicate an entire podcast episode to.

While lion's mane has a ton of scientifically-backed effects, from fighting off cancer and disease, to regenerating neural activity, assisting in the growth of the myelin sheath around nerves, and so much more, many biohackers are turning to it for its effects as a nootropic compound, and something to help them perform better cognitively on a daily basis. And it's mostly for this reason — as well as for its brain-defending effects — that I integrate it into my daily practice almost every single day.

In this episode, I talk about the historic use of lion's mane mushroom in traditional Chinese medicine, some of the important compounds within the mushroom that have a benefit to the human body, what some of the neuroregenerative properties of lion's mane and how it affects our brain, how it may assist with the human immune system, its cancer-fighting abilities, what other diseases it may aid in preventing in the human body, the kinds of things you need to look for when it comes to getting a quality lion's mane product, and so much more.

Lion's mane is one of this natural biohacking tools that I wouldn't ever want to be out of my biohacker's toolkit, and one that many others in this industry back as well.
