Description

Lion’s Mane Mushroom Extract – Nutrition Facts

Hericium erinaceus is the Latin name for one of the most valued culinary mushrooms in Japan (known as Yamabushitake in Japanese) and China. With about 22% protein content and a wide range of minerals and ergosterol, it represents a nutrient dense food source. Over hundreds of years this mushroom, which we know as Lion’s Mane, was consumed as part of the versatile Asian diet. Over time people noticed that when one was experiencing gastric/stomach issues, the pain was alleviated after consuming meals (stews and soups) made with the mushroom. In traditional Chinese medicine it is used to maintain digestive health, fortify the spleen, treat ulcers and gastritis and protect the liver. It is also administered as an anticancer drug, particularly for gastric and oesophageal cancer.

Modern science sheds light on the properties of Lion’s Mane and the concentrated extracts derived from it. Studies explain the reasons for the gastric support and other health benefits that this delicious mushroom has to offer. Rich in the powerful 1,3-1,6 beta-D-glucans, known for their role in supporting optimum immune function and reducing blood sugar, Hericium erinaceus is also a source of other secondary compounds. Two of the most known actives are called hericenones and erinacines. Having low molecular weight, they are able to pass the BBB (blood-brain barrier) and potentiate the production of NGF (nerve growth factor). In short – NGF is a protein that helps to repair neurons and to lower inflammatory processes in both the central and peripheral nervous system. Low levels of NGF have been linked to cognitive decline and motor deficits, but NGF is also involved in, for example, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and depression.

Lion’s Mane is thus believed to enhance cognitive abilities like concentration, learning and memory and may even assist in improving neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. In fact, a large volume of scientific data indicates its potential in the prevention and reversal of neurological damage. It may, for instance, speed up recovery from peripheral nerve injuries caused by trauma or diseases and help patients following a stroke. Moreover, a recent clinical trial conducted by Japanese psychologists on menopausal women points to Lion’s Mane being beneficial in elevating the mood and relieving symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Lion’s Mane Mushroom Extract from Nutri-Fungi

A general rule for a good quality mushroom extract is good quality mushroom material. We use organically cultivated Lion’s Mane fruiting bodies, which are then extracted to produce our nutrient-dense mushroom extract powder. We test not only the purity of the extract but also look for beneficial active ingredients, most notably the beta glucan content. For more information about what we do and how we do it, you can visit our YouTube channel.

Mushroom Extract Powder vs. Mushroom Powder

In the descriptions of mushroom containing products you can often see the word ‘powder’. Mushroom powder means the mushroom fruiting bodies are dried and ground into powder. Such products have little or no health benefits. The bioactive components are inside the mushroom cellular wall and without extraction they are not made bioavailable (ready to be utilized by us).

Some companies use mycelium extracts, which are incomparable to extracts from fruiting bodies in their content of 1,3-1,6 beta-D-glucans, diterpenes, triterpenes and other beneficial compounds.

On labels or descriptions you can also come across the word ‘ratio’. Often companies use this misleading term to advocate the alleged quality of their products. But it is simple – the only thing that matters is the content of the scientifically proven bioactive ingredients. It is these tiny compounds, hidden inside mushroom cellular walls, that we really want, not mycelium powders, mushroom powders or acclaimed ratio used.

How to Take Our Lion’s Mane Mushroom Extract Powder

Medicinal mushrooms are a great source of nutrients, so please treat them as high quality food! We only offer high potency organic certified medicinal mushroom extracts. They are also rich in important bioactive ingredients and are very easy to take. When buying our organic certified mushroom extract powders, you actually get a lot for your money. Some companies put mushroom extracts in capsules and sell these as food supplement. A standard capsule would only contain 250-350 mg of extract. Hence 2 grams of our extract would be the content of 6-8 capsules of pricey mushroom supplement!

  • Our suggestion is you start with 1-2 grams per day and see how it feels.

  • Some people like to take the mushroom extracts straight into the mouth and swallow with water or any other liquid.

  • Others like to put them into shakes or smoothies, hot drinks or even sprinkle them on breakfast cereals. As it usually feels different from person to person, we encourage you to explore and find what works best for you!

Contraindications

One common thing about medicinal mushrooms is that they offer an incredibly wide range of health benefits and usually have no adverse effect. However, just like any other concentrated food product, the experience may vary from one person to another hence we suggest you monitor yourself. In case you experience an adverse effect – please stop taking the extract. Remember – you know your body better than anyone else and it is your privilege to care of yourself!

    I ordered this along with the Chaga mushrooms after a long and very informative chat with the owner. I had read a little about the reported neurotrophic effects of Lion’s Mane and was interested due to a nerve condition I suffer from. I have been using these mushrooms for a week now and already notice significant effects. For example: accelerated nerve healing, increased energy, suppressed food cravings, stable energy, increased libido!

    I am using them in combination with a low carb, high fat eating regime as well as alongside a tailored supplementation plan.

    I am under no illusions that they are a miracle cure but I think if used in this way they can contribute remarkably towards optimum health.

    They are amazing quality and a great price. Highly recommended.
