New from Mushroom Wisdom, Inc. is Amyloban 3399, a proprietary extract from the lion’s mane mushroom, which has been used in traditional Chinese cooking and medicine for centuries. This supplement is unique in that it contains the branded active ingredient Amycenone, which is extracted, fractionated and concentrated using a patented method exclusive to Mushroom Wisdom. Several components of the lion’s mane mushroom present in Amycenone have been associated with brain health support. The bioactive fat-soluble fraction amyloban is associated with nerve cell health, and the group of bioactive compounds known as hericenones has been shown to provide protective action to the brain in research.
Three clinical studies have already taken place administering Amyloban 3399 to patients with Alzheimer’s, and results have shown improvements in memory, mood, balance and perception. These studies also took place over two to six-month time periods, suggesting that effects may become apparent relatively quickly. Another beneficial property often associated with the lion’s mane mushroom that has been found with Amyloban 3399 is the stimulation of nerve growth factors (NGF). One animal study showed that rats administered Amyloban 3399 had more NGF than normal rats. Studies have also been performed linking this supplement and conditions including schizophrenia, sleep apnea, depression and anxiety. Amyloban 3399 is gluten-free, and comes in bottles of 180 vegetarian tablets.
