    In cases when there is a medical condition that manifest itself with lack of energy, tiredness and fatigue, this would be discussed with the medical doctor. Sometimes a change in medication or the dosage can make a big difference.  

  • The recommended Medicinal Mushrooms:

    Medicinal mushrooms, Cordyceps, Reishi, Maitake and Lion’s Mane, are highly efficient in boosting the energy level, in combating fatigue and reducing tiredness.

    They contain a high level of beta-glucans that help to: 
    - boost the immune system,
    - stimulate the brain function, 
    - improve memory,
    - help concentrate easier on tasks,
    - improve oxygen delivery to brain and lungs, 
    - improve the blood circulation,
    - stimulate the brain function,
    - improve the kidney function,
    - balance the hormone levels,
    - increase the oxygen absorption,
    - improve the liver function,
    - reduce stress level,
    - provide the vital nutrients, vitamins and minerals and more.

    The bio-active properties of medicinal mushrooms help fight and eventually eliminate the symptoms of fatigue and drastically improve the brain function.

     The most outstanding and most valuable property of Lion's Mane mushroom is its ability to stimulate the synthesis of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) and promote the process of myelination.

    This boosted synthesis of NGF may enhance cognitive function, stimulate the brain function, help manage the stress levels, help prevent nervousness, forgetfulness and early aging process.  

    It is important to take a combination of these medicinal mushrooms because they compliment each other's properties, thus delivering best results.
