Medicinal Mushrooms and Adaptogens

Combining the Neurotrophic Properties of Medicinal Mushroom and Adaptogens, this formula is created to clear brain fog, lift fatigue, increase vitality and lift your spirits.

Neurotrophic factors are important in promoting the growth and differentiation of neurons. Nerve growth is essential for the maintenance of the cholinergic system, responsible for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is the chief neurotransmitter of the parasympathetic nervous system, the part of the autonomic nervous system that controls smooth muscles, dilates blood vessels, increases bodily secretions, and slows heart rate.

The parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for our various “states” such as “rest and digest” which is the social engagement system, this is when we are at ease and are able to enjoy a relaxing day, eat a good meal, and spend time alone or with friends. This part of the nervous system is also responsible for fight or flight, freeze or fawn and survival responses generated in the limbic part of the brain.

Chronic stress can cause our nervous system to be in chronic low grade fight or flight, and this damages the body as well as the mind.

Neurotropics (Medicinal Mushrooms) have shown in studies to have neurotropic properties, working on the cholinergic system.

This formula combines the revitalizing properties of adaptogens and medicinal mushrooms, blended with licorice root for greater bioavailability.
