Lion's Mane against diabetes

Improvement of the condition in diabetes mellitus and reduction of complications due to Lion's Mane mushroom

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease characterized by elevated levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood. It can lead to serious complications such as heart, kidney, eye and nerve problems. But there is a natural remedy that can help improve the condition in diabetes and reduce the risk of complications - it is the Lion's Mane mushroom.

The main problems in diabetes mellitus are chronically elevated blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia) and oxidative stress - damage to body cells by free radicals. They lead to the development of such complications of diabetes as cardiovascular diseases, kidney damage (diabetic nephropathy), nerves (neuropathy), retina (retinopathy), etc. Controlling glucose levels and protection against oxidative stress are key tasks in the fight against diabetes.

Scientific studies on mice, conducted in China in 2017 and published in the journal Scientific Reports No. 7/2017, proved that special polysaccharides (complex carbohydrates) isolated from the Lion's Mane mushroom have potent antidiabetic properties:

  1. The mushroom polysaccharides significantly reduced blood glucose levels by 28-52% compared to the untreated group, and this effect was dose-dependent.
  2. These substances improved lipid metabolism indicators by 40-60% - they reduced "bad" cholesterol and triglycerides, increased "good" cholesterol.
  3. Polysaccharides from Lion's Mane protected vital organs from damage in diabetes: 
    • restored the structure and functions of pancreatic cells that produce insulin;
    • reduced inflammation, necrosis, fatty degeneration of liver tissues;
    • prevented enlargement and damage to renal glomeruli.   
  4. Due to their antioxidant properties, polysaccharides increased the activity of protective enzymes (superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase) by 50-100% and reduced oxidative damage to organs compared to the untreated group.   

Other scientific studies conducted in China in 2013 also showed that Lion's Mane extract has potent antidiabetic and antioxidant properties:

  1. In an experiment on rats with diabetes mellitus, the mushroom extract significantly reduced blood glucose levels, increased insulin levels, improved lipid metabolism indicators, that is, reduced "bad" cholesterol.
  2. In diabetic subjects receiving the extract, the condition of the liver, kidneys, pancreas - the organs that suffer the most in diabetes - improved.   

Thus, the use of Lion's Mane or its extract can be a useful addition to the main treatment of diabetes mellitus. This natural, beneficial and effective remedy will help control glucose levels, protect the body from complications and improve well-being.
