About the webinar

Join Dr Elizabeth Thompson and Mycotherapist and Founder of the Nutrition Collective Romina Melwani to explore Medicinal Mushrooms and Neurodegenerative conditions.

Medicinal mushroom extracts are most known to be immune-modulators. However, several studies and clinical trials have shown their positive impact on the nervous system. A growing body of research supports the neuroprotective effects of Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) mushroom, so much so that it has earned itself the term “the smart mushroom” due to its ability to improve cognitive performance and reduce brain fog. Recent clinical trials have shown the efforts of cordyceps on the adrenal supporting balance in the body. Mushrooms contain potent ingredients that offer anti-inflammatory properties, particularly beta-glucans and triterpenes, among many others. These substances, which belong to the group of water-soluble polysaccharides, help in regulating the immune system and brain inflammation. How do these mushroom compounds work and what are the mechanisms of action on the body?

Join us and learn about:

Clinically relevant insights & understandings about the anti-inflammatory & nerve supporting effects of mushroom extracts.

About the specific compounds in reishi, shiitake and lions mane mushrooms and how they work

Specific protocols in clinical practice for nervous system health 

and take a deep dive into unveiling protocols to manage brain health using medicinal mushrooms with Mycotherapist Romina Melwani.
