Mushroom Wisdom Inc. (East Rutherford, NJ) has introduced a new mushroom-based cognitive-health ingredient, Amycenone (an ingredient in the finished product pictured). Amycenone is a patent-pending standardized extract of two active constituents of Lion’s Mane mushroom (Hericium erinaceus): amyloban and hericenones. The company says studies have shown that hericenones and amyloban have the ability to stimulate synthesis of Nerve Growth Factor, helping regenerate brain cells, protect brain cell death from amyloid beta-peptide cytotoxicity, improve memory function, and improve mental clarity.
