What is Lion's Mane Mushroom?
Lion's Mane (or Hericium Erinaceus) is a medicinal mushroom which provides a vast number of benefits. Lion's Mane is native to Europe, Asia, and North America - although Asia (and more specifically China) are the global leaders in growing and extracting Lion's Mane Mushrooms. Over 90% of the world's Lion's Mane is produced in China. It's also a tasty edible mushroom and is commonly used in cooking and to make mushroom tea or coffee. It is naturally found growing on trees in the late summer and can be identified by its white, fur-like appearance.
Lion's Mane Mushroom Benefits
The mushroom is harvested and extracted from either the mycelium or the fruiting bodies, both of which carry their own unique compounds. These are known as Erinacines and Hericenones. Erinacines are primarily found in the mycelium, whereas the Hericenones are primarily found in the fruiting bodies. We utilize only the fruiting body extract, which is the Beta-Glucan containing part of a Lion's Mane Mushroom.
These compounds support neuroplasticity by optimizing NGF. The ones found in Lion's Mane are among the most potent naturally occurring compounds for inducing NGF production in vitro.1, 2, 3
Lion's Mane Mushroom extract has shown to exhibit neuroprotection via Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) stimulation. NGF is responsible for dealing with the growth and repair of neurons.

Do yourself a favour and try this
Tried the amazon kind on recommendation of a friend a couple of moths ago. It made me sleep better ( big deal for me), but when I ran out - Amazon didn’t have the same kind so I ordered the next one on the list. It had no effect, so I kind of stumbled on this site - based on the article they have here on what good lion’s mane should look/smell like. This has been great - energy, mood, better sleep. I can hardly believe it . I don’t want to tout it too much because it might not work the same way for everybody ( after researching a bit on the internet). I may be an outlier - the only research for increase of energy I could find was done on mice ( the lion’s mane made them swim longer than the control) I have been doing some research and apparently you need both the fruiting body and the mycelium part. Not sure about the proportions in this one. definitely worth a shot - 15 quid for the possibility of all day clean energy, great mood and better sleep? I hope this helps somebody.
