Lion's Mane Mushroom 8:1 Dual Extract Capsules | 500mg | Whole Fruiting Body | Hericium erinaceus

Why Should I Take Lion's Mane Mushroom 8:1?

 

Lion’s mane is not only one of the most popular mushrooms, it is also one of the most popular natural nootropics! This is because lion’s mane is chock full of beneficial compounds that help enhance neuroplasticity. These compounds appear to be especially soluble in ethanol, and due to this reason, dual water/ethanol extracts are by far the most preferred form of lion’s mane extract for nootropic effects.

 

Our 8:1 lion’s mane is a very high quality, fruiting body ONLY extract, which utilizes both water and ethanol during extraction. This helps concentrate the nootropic compounds within lion’s mane, which makes our lion’s mane 8:1 a phenomenal extract for the purposes of enhancing cognitive function!

 

That all being said, due to the pronounced nootropic effects, it's easy to forget about some of the other amazing benefits of lion’s mane mushroom such as enhancing cardiovascular function, immune health and mood. Our lion’s mane 8:1 will help enhance all of these essential aspects of human health, making our extract a fantastic all rounder for mind and body!

 

What is Lion's Mane Mushroom?

 

Lion’s mane mushroom, scientifically known as Hericium erinaceus, is a part of the tooth fungus group and is native to North America, Europe and Asia. It’s long been used both for its bioactivity and as a food source. Lion’s mane actually has a texture that is very similar to lobster and crab, so it is no surprise that this is also a very popular culinary mushroom!

Lion’s Mane is easily identifiable from other mushroom species because of their tall spines that can grow over 1cm. These mushrooms naturally grow in dangly clusters on hardwoods, most commonly at the end of summer and early fall in Asia, Europe and North America.

 

Lion’s Mane Mushroom 8:1 Dual Extract is standardized to a minimum of 15% Beta-Glucan (β-Glucan).

 

Lion’s Mane Mushroom Extract Benefits and Uses

    • Promotes cognitive function
    • Enhances mood
    • Promotes cardiovascular function

Dual Water/Ethanol Extract For Maximum Cognitive Benefits

 

Many different processing methods can be used when creating lion’s mane extracts, each of which has its own unique advantages. For nootropic purposes though, the common consensus is that dual water/ethanol extracts work the best, and we full heartedly agree with this. This is why our potent 8:1 lion’s mane extract utilizes a dual water/ethanol extraction process!

Furthermore, we don’t simply use cheap and ineffective mycelium on grain products, which many mushroom vendors have started to do in recent years. Mycelium on grain products are not representative of the real mushroom whatsoever. In fact, legally, mycelium on grain can’t even be called a mushroom! At Nootropics Depot however, we strictly use ONLY pure high quality lion’s mane fruiting body. This is why our lion’s mane has pronounced acute effects which are not often seen in other lion’s mane products.

 

In theory, the mycelium of lion’s mane should contain a now quite legendary nootropic compound called Erinacine A, however, we have discovered over the years that this is not as simple as it seems. In fact, through our preliminary research, we have determined that most current commercial mycelium products, especially mycelium on grain products are not very rich sources of erinacine A at all! On the other hand though, high quality lion’s mane fruiting bodies contain lots of different compounds which can have pronounced nootropic effects and these effects are clearly present in our 8:1 lion’s mane fruiting body extract!

 

You may also be asking yourself, what does 8:1 even mean here? This is because it takes 8kg of raw Lion’s mane mushroom to create just a single kilo of our lion’s mane 8:1 extract. As a result of this high concentration, our lion’s mane 8:1 has pronounced nootropic effects. However, our lion’s mane 8:1 should also concentrate the various different beneficial compounds in lion’s mane which have beneficial effects on cardiovascular function and mood!
