Hericium Erinaceus - What are the Nootropic Effects of this Mushroom? | Brain Boosters | Scoop.it

Hericium Erinaceus is a Chinese mushroom with nootropic properties that is also known as Lion’s Mane or even Monkey Head Mushroom. This medicinal mushroom is reported to have a wide range of health and brain benefits and contains over 32 different bioactive substances. It is an excellent source of the minerals Potassium, Zinc, Iron, Selenium, all main amino acids, and various types of polysaccharides and polypeptides. Hericium Erinaceus also contains the compounds hericenones and erinacines which increase levels of Nerve Growth Fator (NGF) in the brain. This protein is involved in the generation, maintenance, growth and repair of neurons within the brain. As such, Hericium Erinaceus is typically added to nootropic stacks to improve brain cell health and as a neuroprotective agent.

Neuroscience and Sensitivity: the Amygdala | Highly Sensitive

Neuroscience and Sensitivity: the Amygdala | Highly Sensitive | Brain Boosters | Scoop.it

A news item by ScienceDaily reported on research that may explain more about the neuroscience that underlies high sensitivity.
