Lion's Mane Mushroom (Hericium erinaceus)
Lion's mane is in a very prestigious class of natural substances able to promote nerve growth factor (NGF). This means lion's mane protects your brain from cognitive degeneration, and also enhances cognitive function - your attention span, memory, decision making and problem solving capacity, etc. There is a lot of promising research indicating lion's mane can enhance the cognitive function in those already in the advanced stages of neurodegenerative diseases, such as ischemic stroke, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, and depression.

Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica)
Gotu kola has been found to benefit the brain in three ways. Number one, it increases oxygen and blood flow to your brain, essential for mental energy and homeostasis. Number two, it has anti-inflammatory effects on your brain, protecting you from degenerative disorders. And number three, it stimulates 'brain-derived neurotrophic factor', which can enhance your learning ability and long term memory. The BDNF stimulating qualities of gotu kola combined with the NGF stimulating properties of lion's mane mushroom have been found to be significantly stronger when combined.
