LIONS MANE : Organic Brain Booster
Our beloved mushrooms are all grown in a small farm 100% organically and sustainably in Washington State. Our mushrooms powders are all cell wall extracted for optimized bioavailability and contain both fruiting bodies and mycelium. Although we love and respect ethically wildcrafted mushrooms and herbs, we purposefully source our mushrooms from a small organic farm to impede the depletion of the wild. Sourcing local and organic mushrooms is essential for sustainability, quality, and vibrancy. Keep in mind that 85% of the world’s mushroom production comes from China. So be 100% sure that your shrooms are coming from local sources.
Product Assets: 100% Organically Grown, Cell Wall Extracted (zero fillers or processors!!), 10% Beta Glucans, Grown in WA State, Stroma (fruiting body) and mycelium
Lions Mane is a very well known nootropic known for its ability to assist with NGF (nerve growth factor) production and protection. Apart from extensive vitamins and minerals, Lion’s Mane also contains some specific compounds such as hericerins, erinacines, erinaceolactones and specific glycoproteins and polysaccharides, that all collaboratively assist to the many clinical functions mentioned below.
Components and extracts of Lion’s Mane have proven antibiotic, anticancer, neuroprotective, fat- and glucose-lowering effects. This mushroom also protects against stomach ulcers, improves anxiety, cognitive function, and depression, and has anti-fatigue and anti-aging properties.
All of these beneficial effects are based on three important properties of this mushroom: it decreases inflammation, acts as an antioxidant, and stimulates the immune system.
Clinically proven effects: may improve brain function, may help with cerebral diseases such as alzheimer's, may enhance nerve regeneration, may combat depression and anxiety, boosts the immune system and has anti-cancer properties.
*Be aware that 75% of mushroom products out there are either radiated, which kill off most betaglucans, or are not the true Ganoderma lucidum. Read more here on this impressive scientific study on the many medicinal benefits of beta-glucans.
* OUR MUSHROOMS ARE ACTIVATED. All of our mushroom powders have gone through a steam process to make the cell walls break down and enhance the bioavailability of the constituents. This term is referred to as “activation” or “steam extraction”.
