3 Best Nootropics to Stack with Lion’s Mane

The top 3 performing Nootropic mushrooms are the Reishi mushroom, the Tremella mushroom, and the Chaga mushroom. Let’s look a little bit at what these Nootropic mushrooms offer and why you might want to take them.

Reishi Mushroom

The Reishi mushroom has been used for hundreds of years in Eastern civilizations as a medicinal mushroom. They have been known to lower inflammation, reduce viral and bacterial loads, as well as help control diabetes. However, when used as a Nootropic it is particularly effective in reducing chronic fatigue syndrome and anxiety.

Tremella Mushroom

Studies suggest that the Tremella mushroom may be used as a preventative agent for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. This fungus, which is a natural Nootropic, has also been shown to improve both learning and memory ability in mice. They are also considered a great source of antioxidants and help lower inflammation.

Chaga Mushroom

The Chaga mushroom has been used in parts of the world to help treat cancer, increase immunity, and lower inflammation. This fungus has been shown in studies to boost acetylcholine in the central nervous system and brain to help increase learning and memory.
