Lion's Mane Mushroom capsules helped me tremendously with memory loss. A lot of places online that you can order them. My memory loss was affecting my job and it isn't any longer.

@Kelly from Cambridge Mass.

Kelly, I never tried anything but the Lion's Mane and was lucky enough for that to bring me relief. It took about the middle of the second week when I noticed that I could remember things again. Before that I would get home form work and could not remember the name of my team leader or the coworker that works across the aisle from me without some deep thought. And don't even begin to ask me who sings a certain song on the radio...... I was really fearful that it was going to get so much worst and fast. I tried to tell my friends that are my age about Lions Mane and they don't believe that it is as simple as taking some capsules. I'm glad that I took the chance and I never felt any kind of discomfort from taking them.

I take two caps at 500 mgs each and I take them once per day. They cost me about $21.00 per month. I tried to take another brand that was cheaper and I could tell right away that I was not getting the same results from them. If I'm allowed to say, I take the Host Defense brand. I hope that you have good results too.

@TinyDancer - Did you try Ginkgo Biloba prior to trying Lion's Mane Mushroom?

I'm asking because when I tried Gingko last year, I had to stop once I was a few days in because my head began swimming. It scared me, so I stopped taking it. I wondered if you (or anyone here, for that matter) tried Ginkgo and experienced the same.

@TinyDancer - Thanks so much. I think I will give the Lion's Mane a try. I hope it works as well for me as it has for you. Thank you, again!

@Kelly, Go for it Kelly. I took the risk and have had great results. I hope that you have the same or better results. I am so happy that we have this forum to share what we have experienced. It is so much better to help someone than to walk through this world angry and hateful all the time. Good luck to you.

Hello, I have a question for Tinydancer from Dayton, Ohio regarding Lion's Mane capsules. Tinydancer posted about Lion's Mane mushrooms as a comment under someone's post about coconut oil for alzheimer's and poor memory. I was wanting to know what dosage and strength Tinydancer used. Thank you!

I have read that the recommended dosage of coconut oil for Alzhiemers is 3 table spoons 3 x a day.

Be aware that this much can cause diarrhea. You may have to dial it back some and spread it out. Make sure your coconut oil is virgin cold pressed organic. Not processed!

The way it works is it puts the brain on a keytone diet instead of a glucose diet which it has become resistant to. The brain is basically insulin resistant and can't process glucose propperly as its fuel. In short if you can go on a keytogenic diet you can achieve the same results. A lot has been written on the keytogneic diet. Look it up. I hope this helps.
