Lion’s Mane Mushroom Fruit Bodies Extract

This mushroom, with its strange bearded appearance, has long been sought after as a culinary delicacy, often used as a chicken substitute! It is mainly found growing on beech trees throughout
north America, Europe and Asia. In recent times, Lions Mane has become a super-star mushroom thanks to scientific research. Two classes of compounds made by the mushroom, namely, the hericenones and the erinacines, have been shown to stimulate the production of NGF (neurological growth factor). As the name suggests it plays a part in the survival of and regeneration of nerve cells. It also appears to protect pancreatic cells and immune cells too.

Sadly nowadays, in the UK, the leading cause of death is dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. There are very few drugs for this condition…but now there is a super-food that could help! However, Lion’s Mane could also have a role in the treatment of peripheral and other neuropathies and even help to feed your brain during bouts of anxiety or depression. There is even research to say it could ease menopausal symptoms.

Our Lion’s Mane is grown on sawdust to simulate its natural environment.

 

The cell walls of mushrooms and mushroom mycelium are made from an indigestible fiber called "chitin," the same material a lobster shell is made of.

Hot water extraction is the only clinically validated method for breaking these polysaccharides out of the indigestible cell walls. Even soft mushrooms like Shiitake are prepared as a hot water extract or a tea when used medicinally.

 

What we have done with our extracts is to take a step back in time, to traditional methods using whole mushroom fruiting bodies cultivated on organic substrate. Our mushrooms are extracted by the traditional hot water extract and then mixed into a base of vegetable glycerine. Deliberately moving away from pharmaceutically manipulated extracts and back to whole, food state mushroom extracts, as it was done for centuries.

Each 1ml/20 drops contains a traditionally prepared hot water extract of Hericium erinaceus/Lion’s Mane mushroom fruit bodies (1:4) in a base of vegetable glycerine 70%
