Lion's Mane Mushroom 

Dual Extract 

(Hericium erinaceus)


The Lion's Mane mushroom has long been treasured in Japan and China, both as a culinary delicacy and as an important medicinal mushroom. As a highly prized medicinal mushroom Japanese scientists have studied the Lion's Mane mushroom and have confirmed many diverse and important biological activities.

Recent research indicates that the hot water/alcohol extract of Lion's Mane stimulates the synthesis of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) and promotes the process of myelination.

Hot Water Extracted: Dr. Mark Stengler N.D., in his recent book, The Health Benefits of Medicinal Mushrooms, made the observation that all of the independent scientific studies on medicinal mushrooms are based on the use of hot water extracts. All of the references from Traditional Chinese Medicine also recommend hot water extraction when preparing medicinal mushrooms. There are two main factors involved:

Bioavailability - The immune-supporting polysaccharides common to all medicinal mushrooms and mushroom mycelium are found inside of the cell walls. However, the cell walls are made from an indigestible fiber called "chitin", the same material a lobster shell is made of. Hot water extraction is the only clinically validated method for breaking these polysaccharides out of the indigestible cell walls. Even soft mushrooms like shiitake are prepared as a hot water extract or a tea when used medicinally.

Concentration - The immune supporting polysaccharides found in the cell walls of mushrooms and mushroom mycelium comprise only 0.5-2% of the total mass by dry weight (depending on the mushroom), not enough to have effect even if they were bioavailable. Most hot water mushroom extracts are at least a 20:1 concentration. Hot water extraction dissolves the indigestible fiber (chitin), allowing the fiber to be removed from the extract when the water is removed. This process concentrates the polysaccharides to the effective levels  (30%) identified in the published research.

Hot water extracts (dehydrated) are 50-80 times more potent than mycelium biomass.
