Lion’s Mane Mushroom May Help Depression
Suicide is the second leading cause of death worldwide for young adults. Currently available antidepressants are barely adequate and only relieve symptoms in about 20% of patients. Hericium erinaceus, also known as lion’s mane mushroom, may significantly improve depression through modulating chemical signals and anti-inflammatory pathways in the brain. It represents an exciting area for further research as an alternative treatment for depression.
Depression is a common and severe neuropsychiatric disorder that is one of the leading causes of global disease burden. Although various anti-depressants are currently available, their efficacies are barely adequate and many have side effects. Hericium erinaceus, also known as Lion’s mane mushroom, has been shown to have various health benefits, including antioxidative, antidiabetic, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antihyperglycemic, and hypolipidemic effects. It has been used to treat cognitive impairment, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
