Lowering Glutamate | Lion’s Mane

Lion’s Mane– Reduces neuronal excitability from glutamate “Extract suppressed the excitation of neurons caused by L-glutamic acid application. The assumption is made that the H. erinaceus extract contains substances that may activate receptors that cause an inhibition of spike activity. The inhibitory effect of extract was not induced by GABA and serotonin receptor activation or activation of M- and N-cholinoreceptors. Inhibition of spike activity was caused by hyperpolarization of the neuronal membrane during extract application.” http://www.dl.begellhouse.com/journals/708ae68d64b17c52,0d49dda96a2a7147,504922782f5fa5ea.html Why Is This Important? Glutamate is also the most abundant neurotransmitter, responsible for regulating over 50% of the nervous [...]
