Research was carried out on this mushroom powder using rats in 2005, and the findings unearthed several medicinal substances present in Hericium Erinaceus. The substances included palmitic acid, threitol and D-arabinitol. A study of these substances found them to be responsible for reducing blood sugar and regulating lipid levels in the blood. Evidence also suggested this mushroom has a wide range of antioxidants.
Over the years we’ve become specialists in medicinal mushroom powders and this one has quickly become a best seller due it’s unique properties.
How is it made?
Our lions mane is a pure powder that’s made from organic lions mane fruiting body. It’s dried at low temperatures and them milled, so not technically an extract.
Bear in mind some companies can use some misleading marketing language by claiming their lions mane is 10:1 (for example) extracted. What they mean by that is it takes 10kg of fresh lions mane to make 1kg of powdered. This is not what an extract is.
Whilst ours is likely that same (10:1) fresh:powder ratio, that doesn’t count as the extract ratio. An extract is when the powdered lions mane is concentrated further using alcohol, water/temperature etc.
Polysaccharides and beta glucans?
Polysaccharides and beta glucans are not tested for. Testing for every nutrient quickly becomes not commercially viable, we find that as long as care is taken with the growing methods and production processes then the end result will be a high quality product with plenty of potency.
