The 6 “Mane” Characteristics of our Lion's Mane Mushroom Gummies

Lion's Mane Mushrooms

With so many health products and superfoods out there, all promising a plethora of benefits, it can be difficult to know which products and ingredients to look out for, when, and why to take them.

In an effort to streamline our customers’ access to clear and concise information, here at Feel Güd we have formulated our mushroom gummies to contain a potent and effective amount of all our key ingredients – one of which is Lion’s Mane.

But with 700mg of the ingredient in every gummy serving – and a pretty impressive name to boot – what exactly do you need to know about Lion’s Mane, and why is it considered a superfood and leading ingredient in our formula?

What is Lion’s Mane?

You won’t be surprised to learn that, given its placement in our mushroom gummy formula, Lion’s Mane is a type of mushroom. But this isn’t just any old shroom. Lion’s Mane is used regularly in both the culinary world and the world of alternative medicine – and has been heralded for generations by those in Asian countries particularly for its natural properties.

Of course, here at Feel Güd, we are as focussed on delivering benefits as we are on giving our customers an enjoyable and convenient product to take. Here are 6 reasons why we chose Lion’s Mane as one of the core ingredients in our leading mushroom gummies.

6 Reasons to Love Lion’s Mane

1. It's good for your brain

Reading this blog about Lion’s Mane will elevate your understanding of the ingredient.

Taking Lion’s Mane as part of our mushroom gummy may make that understanding more long-lived, easier to retain, and more accessible in the future.

Why? One of the biggest benefits that has been linked to Lion’s Mane is its supposed ability to support cognitive function – with some studies showing a connection between the mushroom ingredient and better memory, nerve growth, and natural protection from Alzheimer’s.

Not only that, but Lion’s Mane has also been linked with the stimulation of brain cell growth, and the enhanced function of the brain even as the rest of the body ages.

It has been known to help relieve anxiety

Remember the lion in the Wizard of Oz, who wanted to visit the wizard to get some courage? Well, having researched the properties and benefits of Lion’s Mane, we think the filmmakers were onto something with that one…

Studies show that Lion’s Mane can help to relieve the symptoms of anxiety and depression, using its anti-inflammatory properties to reduce chronic inflammation which exacerbates these underlying issues.

And while we’re on the topic of anti-inflammatories…

It could help relieve inflammation and tissue damage in the digestive tract

More people suffer from stomach ulcers and digestive issues than you might realise, causing damage to the lining of their stomach and leading to a whole host of future issues. Lion’s Mane is one of those anti-inflammatories which has been studied in various locations and against various issues across the body, demonstrating particular prowess in the digestive region.

Some reports have shown that Lion’s Mane can help to alleviate some of the inflammation which causes stomach ulcers and could even offer a better alternative to ulcer relief than traditional acid-lowering medication.

4. Stimulates the growth of nerve cells

We’re back on the brain for this next benefit – as Lion’s Mane has been known to help stimulate the growth of nerve cells following injuries which impact the nervous system.

Whether in the form of a stroke or some other brain injury or damage to the spinal cord, a consistent and potent dose of Lion’s Mane taken regularly could help to repair nerve cells and reduce the severity of lasting damage.

5. It’s good for your heart

… in more ways than one! All of our Feel Güd gummies are designed to make you feel güd from the inside out, with the family aspect of our business hitting us (and our customers) right in the feels.

But getting back to the practical stuff, Lion’s Mane as a core ingredient does a lot more than just help you to feel güd. It has also been linked with a reduction in the formation of heart disease across some trials, by helping to reduce both fat in the body and the chance of developing blood clots.

6. Antioxidant properties

Not only is Lion’s Mane recognised for its anti-inflammatory benefits – it is also considered an antioxidant, which can aid the body in fighting off harmful free radicals and compounds which lead to chronic illness if left untreated.

Antioxidants are found in a number of natural foods and ingredients – however, the amount you need to consume to access all the benefits is often not nearly high enough in everyday food items and products, which is why Feel Güd gummies are such a hit with natural health enthusiasts.

Lion’s Mane: the MANE ingredient for a reason

See what we did there?

Lion’s Mane is one of the core ingredients in our mushroom gummies, delivering a plethora of benefits which not only aid your body’s natural health and wellbeing, but which can contribute towards the reduction of more specific concerns and issues.

By ticking both boxes, Lion’s Mane – and the mushroom gummies that it can be found in – is an ideal supplemental ingredient for those suffering from a range of illnesses, as well as those simply seeking healthy remedies to boost their health.
