Lion's mane for better learning and concentration
Lion's mane, or monkey head mushroom, is the most popular mushroom for brain health worldwide. It benefits memory, supports learning ability and concentration and, as an adaptogen, helps coping with the negative effects of stress. This 'king of mushrooms' is known by many names including hericium erinaceus, mountain priest, yamabu-shitake and hedgehog mushroom.
New Chapter uses the mycelium (the fungal threads) and the pulp for LifeShield™ Mind Force. Lion's mane, like many other mushrooms, contains beta-glucan polysaccharides (chains of sugars), which stimulate the immune system. Lion's mane also has the unique ability to produce NGF (nerve growth factor). This important substance is usually unable to properly cross the blood-brain barrier, but thanks to ericenones and ericasins from the spores, the fungus does influence this.
Stronger resistance against stress with reishi
Reishi (ganoderma lucidum) is one of the top 3 medicinal mushrooms and is highly regarded in traditional Chinese herbal science. In Chinese, the powerful mushroom is called ling zhi: mushroom of immortality. Reishi, a bracket fungus, has been used for centuries for its positive effects on overall health, vitality and the immune system. This mushroom has received strong scientific interest in recent years. Recent research confirms that reishi strengthens and balances the immune system.
In addition to many vitamins, this orange-brown “lacquered” fungus contains minerals and trace elements; substances that belong to the polysaccharides; and triterpenes (bioactive substances). Mushrooms like Reishi have antiviral and antibacterial properties that allow them to attack viruses and bacteria directly -- especially in the intestines where our immune system is largely located.
New Chapter uses the fungal threads (mycelium) and the pulp, that is, the hat and the trunk. Reishi products are legion, but they are not always effective. New Chapter extensively tests its products and even conducts DNA tests to ensure that the authentic medicinal ling zhi strain is used in New Chapter LifeShield™ supplements.
Traditional use of poria and chaga
Each serving of two LifeShield™ Mind Force capsules contains, besides lion’s mane and reishi, 125 mg of poria and 125 mg of chaga as well. Poria grows on the roots of the pine tree and is traditionally used as a Chi (life energy) tonic that supports the organs. The nutritious, firm brown tuber is slightly diuretic and sedative; Taoist hermits eat it to achieve enlightenment. The chaga, or clinker polypore, is a black-brown tuber that grows on birch trunks. Scientific research has shown that the chaga mushroom contains a large number of active components with antioxidant and antiviral effect.
Mushrooms as adaptogens
Mushrooms including reishi and lion’s mane are adaptogens, a well-known term in the holistic diet world. In centuries of Ayurvedic medicine, many herbs and plants have served as adaptogens. The Latin verb 'adaptare' means adaptation: adaptogens help your body adapt to negative stimuli including stress. This restores balance. The pharmacological concept of adaptogens stipulates that they stabilize physiological processes and promote homeostasis. For example, adaptogens stimulate the body to produce balanced hormones. They do not ensure the production of hormones themselves, but remedy any imbalance.
A Life Shield of mushrooms
New Chapter combines ancient traditional use of nature's treasures with insights from modern science. New Chapter’s mushroom-based product line is called LifeShield™ for a reason. These supplements provide a protective shield for your well-being. New Chapter uses the mycelium of the mushrooms (the fungal threads) and the fleshy part that grows above ground for products that actually contribute to your health.
New Chapter LifeShield™ products bring balance to your life and each offers a specific health benefit, from enhanced mental clarity to support of the respiratory functions. New Chapter mushrooms are grown in the United States. They are given the opportunity to fully develop, ensuring a complete life cycle and thus, optimal medicinal properties.
How are the mushrooms tested?
Not every mushroom offers the same health benefits, though they may look identical. New Chapter takes pride in their mushrooms carrying the Identify Assured quality distinction, which means that all strains used have been carefully qualified and checked. New Chapter uses advanced technology to match, control and guarantee all components of the mushroom. This means that even the DNA of the strains is tested to identify and compare them with results from their extensive database. The chemical fingerprint of the mushrooms is then examined to verify and confirm its effect. This way you can be sure that the correct beneficial properties of the mushroom are present in your LifeShield™ supplements.
