One of our all-time favourites of our Medicinal Mushrooms line: Lion's mane mushroom! Also called 'The smart mushroom' or 'The priest of the mountains'. In Japan, this mushroom has been used for centuries for its supposedly supportive and restorative effects on the mind. It is a truly special sight when you come across it in the woods, hanging on to a tree trunk.
What makes Lion's mane so special? The ericenones and erinacines (alkaloids present in Lion's mane) stimulate the production of the body's own substance NGF. NGF stands for nerve growth factor. NGF is necessary for the growth of certain neurons in our brains. It also plays a role in myelination. A process that transmits signals through the nerves.
Good to know
Mushrooms have been used and studied for over 5,000 years. Scientific research shows that they contain numerous beneficial substances that support the health of your entire system. To guarantee you the best concentration of these substances, we use a high-tech triple extraction procedure. This ensures that the full spectrum of vital substances is present in Foodsporen's extracts.
Foodsporen® Lion's mane extract is, like all products of this brand, made from the fruiting bodies of this special mushroom. They do not use the mycelium which is grown on grain. This way they can offer you an honest, powerful and pure product. Exactly what your body and mind deserve, we think. Moreover, all Foodsporen extracts, including the Foodsporen® Lion's mane capsules, are standardized at no less than 30% polysaccharides!
Foodsporen mushrooms are strong adaptogens, which means they support your body and immune system during periods of stress and fatigue. You can consider them as your personal bodyguards that protect you and strengthen your immune system!
