What sets our Lion's Mane Mushroom Apart?
Our Lion's Mane Mushroom extract is one of the few dual-extracted powders available in the UK. Hot water extracts are cheaper and contain a lesser spectrum of active ingredients, while mycelium extracts are almost entirely grown on grain and contain mostly starch instead of mushrooms. Our Lion's Mane is dual-extracted from whole fruiting bodies with a ratio of 20:1, and then encapsulated in the very best vegan-friendly capsules. Watch our starch test video
What is Lion's Mane Mushroom?
Lion's Mane (or Hericium Erinaceus) is a medicinal mushroom which provides a vast number of benefits. Lion's Mane is native to Europe, Asia, and North America - although Asia (and more specifically China) are the global leaders in growing and extracting Lion's Mane Mushrooms. Over 90% of the world's Lion's Mane is produced in China. It's also a tasty edible mushroom and is commonly used in cooking and to make mushroom tea or coffee. It is naturally found growing on trees in the late summer and can be identified by its white, fur-like appearance.
Lion's Mane Mushroom Benefits
The mushroom is harvested and extracted from either the mycelium or the fruiting bodies, both of which carry their own unique compounds. These are known as Erinacines and Hericenones. Erinacines are primarily found in the mycelium, whereas the Hericenones are primarily found in the fruiting bodies. We utilize only the fruiting body extract, which is the Beta-Glucan containing part of a Lion's Mane Mushroom.
These compounds support neuroplasticity by optimizing NGF. The ones found in Lion's Mane are among the most potent naturally occurring compounds for inducing NGF production in vitro.1, 2, 3
Lion's Mane Mushroom extract has shown to exhibit neuroprotection via Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) stimulation. NGF is responsible for dealing with the growth and repair of neurons.
