Brain Fog & Blue Monday

Brain Fog & Blue Monday

Blue Monday is the name given to a day in January said to be the most depressing day of the year. This year, Blue Monday falls on the 15th. 

In the lead up to one of the saddest and most stressful days of the year, we explore the connection between Lion's Mane Mushroom and brain fog, and how using Mycologic as a supplement can help. 

Understanding Brain Fog
The phenomenon of brain fog can be summed up like the feeling we get at the end of a very long day; a sense of being mentally stretched and socially exhausted. Symptoms include confusion, forgetfulness, a lack of focus and mental clarity. 

Brain Fog & The Frontal Lobe
Brain fog is believed to involve the frontal lobe, the brain's central hub for advanced cognitive functions. Research indicates that inflammation might be a key factor in conditions associated with brain fog. Therefore, addressing inflammation could be crucial in managing brain fog symptoms. You can help to reduce brain inflammation by consuming less sugar, managing stress levels, regular exercise and getting enough REM sleep. It just so happens that one of Mycologic's main benefits is the improvement of deep and consistent sleep.  

Lion's Mane Mushroom & Mycologic
Lion's Mane mushroom, a key ingredient in Mycologic, is particularly relevant with helping to rid yourself of the brain blues. Known for their cognitive-enhancing properties, Lion's Mane mushrooms stimulate nerve growth factors, aiding in memory and cognitive improvement. Mycologic, with its natural mushroom formula, addresses the problem of brain fog by targeting inflammation and supporting mental health.
