In a recent medical study published in the Journal of Neurochemistry, researchers from the University of Queensland have isolated an active compound from a popular mushroom that boosts nerve growth and enhances memory (*article link at the bottom of the blog). It’s called Lion’s Mane, and it’s been used in Traditional Medicine for centuries in Asia.

In pre-clinical trials, these researchers concluded that Lion’s Main improved brain cell growth and memory. More research will follow, but it provides hope for those struggling with memory issues.

Suzanne’s Natural Foods has a wide variety of products containing Lion’s Mane that you may want to try if you struggle with focus, clarity, and memory issues. Here are a few of Suzanne’s favorites.
