Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus, also known as Yamabushitake) is a mushroom that supports mood, general well-being, and overall cognition.
Lion’s Mane Mushroom Benefits
Pure Nootropics provides high quality mushroom extracts, using only 100% organic whole fruiting bodies which are rigorously tested and guaranteed pure.
Lion's Mane has been a hugely popular nootropic for centuries in Chinese folkloric remedies, and now Western science and society is beginning to catch up to its extraordinary benefits.
As a mushroom, the primary active compounds are polysaccharides, or beta-glucans. The fruiting body of the mushroom contains the highest content of the B-glucan polysaccharides. (1).
You may be aware of our two different Lion's Mane products.
The 1:1 extract is higher in polysaccharides than the 8:1, and is recommended for overall well-being, whereas the 8:1 is more suitable for cognitive support.
Pure Nootropics’ Lion’s Mane Mushroom Extract Capsules provide 500 mg per 1 capsule. Suggested use for adults is 2 capsules by mouth once daily, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
