Product Description

Lion’s Mane Mushroom

10:1 Concentrated Extract - 2oz (56 grams)

What is Lion’s Mane Mushroom Powder?

Lion’s mane is a medicinal mushroom that often grows wild on dead trees throughout Asia, North America, and parts of Europe. Not your typical stem and cap-shaped fungi, this unusual-looking mushroom has long white or cream colored cascading spines which give it the nickname of the pom pom mushroom. Our lion’s mane powder is a 10:1 extract, which means that we take ten pound of mushrooms and concentrate them into one pound of super potent powder that’s ready to be used.

What Are the Health Benefits of Lion’s Mane Mushroom?

Over a dozen scientific studies have been published on the neuro-regenerative properties of lion’s mane. Dr. Kawagishi first identified two nerve growth factors within the mushrooms which help to aid nerve regeneration. Out of 240 classified species of medicinal mushroom, it's the only one to contain these two unique compounds. The nerve growth factors found in lion’s mane have a low molecular weight, which means they are able to infiltrate the blood-brain barrier to help provide neurological nourishment. The discovery of NGFs is considered to be one of the most important findings of this century, and it even earned its discoverers the Nobel Prize for medicine in 1986.

Lion’s mane also contains a wealth of minerals, amino acids, polypeptides, 22 phyto-compounds (including flavonoids and alkaloids), fatty acids, and polysaccharides. It's also approximately 20% protein, which makes it particularly beneficial supplement for vegan and vegetarians.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), lion's mane mushrooms are often prescribed to help support memory and concentration. It may also play a role in helping women through the menopause. Researchers at Kyoto Bunkyo University gave one group of menopausal women a lion’s mane infused cookie, and another group a placebo cookie which they ate daily over several weeks. The group who took the lion's mane cookie displayed a significant reduction in menopausal symptoms after the study.

World famous mycologist, Paul Stamets, says that lion’s mane may be the first ever ‘smart mushroom’, that can help to bring about balance to the body. Legend has it that lion's mane gives people 'nerves of steel and the memory of a lion'.
