Used for centuries as a general tonic and health treatment, the Lion’s Mane Mushroom (also known as Hericium Erinaceus, Yamabushitake or Satyr’s Beard) is native to China, Japan, North America and Europe. Though it was traditionally prescribed as a general restorative, its effect on the brain has always been recognized.

In Japan, it is called yamabushitake which means “mountain priest mushroom.” It’s named after the Yamabushi sect of hermit Buddhist monks believed to possess supernatural powers. According to legend, they used lion’s mane to stay focused during meditation.

The reason Lion’s man is so special is that recent research has shown that it contains within it a not one but two nerve growth stimulate compounds (NGS) which have been named erinacines and hericiones. These rather clever hericones and erinacines stimulate neurons to regrow and rebuild myelin.

Myelin is the fatty substance that surrounds the axon of some nerve cells, forming a electrically insulating layer. This layer is essential for the nervous system to function properly.

This rebuilding of nerve cells and thus improvement of nervous system function, could mean that Lion’s mane could play a vital role in the treatment of nerve related conditions as well as possibly repairing neurological trauma and increasing cognitive abilities.

Lion’s Mane increases the amount of NGF in the brain, which enhances cognition by reducing inflammation, encouraging neural growth, and improving overall brain health.

    Very rare find and high quality.

    By far the worst thing I’ve ever tasted, It tastes like soap. I don’t know what to do. I want to be able to take it but it just tastes so bad that I can’t. Tastes very bitter and I gag every time I sip it, I’m usually good with stomaching bad tasting things and am not fussy with anything either

      Hi there Luke I’m afraid that this extract is indeed very bitter due to the nature of what it contains eg high levels of erinacines (4% in fact ) which like triterpenes have a bitter taste. I would suggest taking a smaller amount and mixing it with a tsp of honey as this will make it more palatable 🙂

    Great preparation of Lion’s Mane. The bitter taste is very enjoyable: like a fragrant black coffee.

    Thanks to my bad I’ve read just after the purchase the origin of product is in China. The levels of heavy metals seems to be high, therefore I won’t consume it. Now it’s too late to return the product.

      Hi Martin it’s not to late to return the item but this is the first I have heard about the issue. Please contact me via email and I will sort out a refund once i receive the product back in resalable condition 🙂 AS for China almost every medicinal mushroom extract is grown in China and companies saying they are not are probably telling lies! And marking things packaged in UK or produced in the UK which means they get the herbs imported then put them in bags in the UK and magically you have a UK product! AS for heavy metals all our products come under EU law in this regard and pass with no issue. 🙂
