I have been struggling with and anxiety clinical depression for a very long time, and I really don't want to take medication that isn't completely natural and organic anymore. Does anyone know if Lion's Mane mushrooms can increase serotonin levels and can be used as a natural way to combat these conditions?

There is some evidence that lions mane may be able to help with anxiety. In a research in 2010 with 30 participants. At the end of the four weeks, those in the testing group reported an improved mood. Studies show that the lion's mane reverses the levels of excitatory neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin; this may increase serotonin levels in a depressed person.
