Nootropic Mushroom Extracts
& Functional Fungi
Some do say that Fungi is the reason we live. Others say that we are simply very advanced fungi. And some more think that is utter rubbish. What we can say for certain is that Mushroom extracts are pretty good for us.
Mushrooms are weird, squidgy, and squashed things that you stay away from because they look, funny and could be harmful. At a closer look, these sprouting fungi are way more beneficial than what meets the eye! The world of fungi is truly a rabbit hole of amazing discoveries that are not yet fully understood.
Medicinal mushroom extracts have been used as natural remedies for as far back as history has been recorded.
What are Nootropics and Nootropic Mushrooms?
The word “nootropic” on it’s own is a little bit too clever for our liking. Which makes sense because that is what is means.
Nootropics are substances (natural or synthetic) which can be taken to improve mental performance in healthy people. Things that basically make you smarter.
Mostly, Nootropics are taken to boost memory, focus, creativity, intelligence and often motivation. All things we need in this crazy world.
It is true that substances like Caffeine make you smarter, but what about Nootropic Mushrooms? They are natural, very good for your health and have a long lasting benefit. Lion’s Mane is a particularly potent Nootropic but many of the functional fungi found in traditional medicine are too.
