Lion’s Mane Mushroom, also known as Yamabushitake, is an edible mushroom that is often taken as a supplement due to ability to support brain health and cognitive function. Lion’s Mane is particularly popular due to its ability to support nerve-growth factor (NGF) levels, a neurotrophic factor which is involved in regulating the growth and survival of new neurons.
The typically recommended dosage of Lion’s Mane is 1000 mg per day, taken with food. This dose can be repeated with each meal if desired, for a total daily dose of 3000 mg. It’s not recommended to exceed 3000 mg per day due to a lack of research at higher doses, though no specific safety concerns for higher doses have been raised.
Lion’s Mane Mushroom Side Effects
Lion’s Mane is well tolerated and presents few adverse side effects. The most common side effect reported from taking Lion’s Mane is an upset stomach, which is less likely if used with food. Itchy skin is rarely reported as an adverse side effect as well.
Lion’s Mane should not be used if you suffer from a bleeding condition or are at least 2 weeks away from a surgery as some research suggests it may slow blood clotting. (Although this has only been observed in animal studies.)
