SCIENCE

SO-DSX1® has been proven to improve cognitive reaction time and reduce stress when consumed consistently over a 28-day period.

This is the first known published study to assess the effects of lion’s mane supplementation on cognitive function and stress parameters in healthy young adults.

In a clinical study conducted at Northumbria University, UK, healthy adults aged 18 to 45 consuming 1.8 grams of SO-DSX1 daily improved their cognitive reaction times significantly over that of participants consuming a placebo.

Test Results

The double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical study was conducted with healthy adults to evaluate the effects of SO-DSX1 on stress and cognition.

The tests were conducted after immediate (60 minutes post-dose) and sustained (28-day treatment) daily supplementation. The participants, 41 healthy adults aged 18 to 45, consumed either 1.8 g of the mushroom supplement or placebo and were asked to perform a Stroop task, which measures cognitive reaction times, and cognitive function, such as the ability to reduce and/or prevent easy distractions and abilities like planning, reading skill, decision-making, among others.

After one hour, results of Stroop tests were significant between the SO-DSX1® and placebo groups: from 740 milliseconds to 690 milliseconds in the supplement group, and from 700 milliseconds to 710 milliseconds in the placebo group.

The self-reported stress scores of participants who received the SO-DSX1 treatment at the 28-day mark also significantly improved, compared to placebo, as measured by the Stress Visual Analog Score.
