Hericium Erinaceus, also known as Lion’s Mane, is an edible and medicinal mushroom belonging to the tooth fungus group. Native to North America, Europe and Asia, Lion’s Mane looks like a frozen waterfall sprouting out of the side of a tree. Aside from its unique appearance, the mushroom is notable for its putative ability to help the nervous system regenerate.

Cognitive Booster/ Dementia protection

 

Cognitive functions that rely on the medial temporal lobe and prefrontal cortex, such as learning, memory and cognitive function, show considerable age-related decline.

Lion’s mane however contains compounds that stimulate and promote nerve growth and protect the brain growth of brain cells. Studies have found that lion’s mane mushrooms contain two special compounds that can stimulate the growth of brain cells: Hericenones and Erinacines. Lion’s mane mushroom extracts have shown to reduce symptoms of memory loss, as well as prevent neuronal damage caused by amyloid-beta plaques, which accumulate in the brain during Alzheimer’s disease.

 

Nervous System Injuries Recovery Assistance

 

Lion’s Mane mushroom extract can stimulate nerve growth factors and nerve cell repair of the brain, spinal cord, and retina.

Research has further shown that Lion’s Mane may help speed recovery from nervous system injuries by stimulating the growth and repair of nerve cells. A study performed on rats, showed a nervous system injury recovery reduction time of 23–41%.

In addition another study found that Lion’s Mane extract may also help reduce the severity of brain damage after a stroke. High doses of Lion’s Mane mushroom extract given to rats immediately after a stroke helped decrease inflammation and reduce the size of stroke-related brain injury by 44%.

In case you’re not a medical professional the reason that results from a study on rats is medically significant is due to the fact that their genetic, biological and behaviour characteristics closely resemble those of humans, and many symptoms of human conditions can be replicated in mice and rats. #FunFact

 

Heart Health

 

Studies have shown that lion’s mane mushroom extract—particularly the hericenone compound—can lower triglyceride levels, slow down blood clotting, and reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.

 

Can Fight Cancer

 

Along with helping your overall immune system, some studies suggest that Lion's Mane could actually kill cancer cells including Leukemia and stomach cancer. Another study found that Lion's Mane extract inhibits the spread of lung cancer cells in mice. There is growing interest in Lion's Mane and medicinal mushrooms in general as a natural source for future cancer therapy.

 

Antioxidant Rich

 

Chronic inflammation and oxidative stress are believed to be at the root of many modern illnesses, including heart disease, cancer and autoimmune disorders.

A study conducted in 2012, which evaluated the medicinal potential of 14 types of mushroom found that Lion’s Mane had the fourth highest antioxidant activity and due to this activity recommended it be considered a good dietary source of antioxidants.

 

Immune Boosting

 

Since the Covid 19 pandemic it is no longer necessary to stress the importance of a strong immune system.

Research shows that Lion’s Mane mushroom can boost immunity by increasing the activity of the gut microbiota, which protects the body from pathogens that enter the gut through the mouth or nose.

One study even found that supplementing with lion’s mane extract daily nearly quadrupled the lifespan of mice injected with a lethal dose of salmonella bacteria.

What are Polysaccharides and why are they important?

 

To avoid getting too technical, polysaccharides (poly.) are fundamentally long chain carbohydrates. Most if not all medicinal mushroom retailers will quote a poly. content between 10%-50% as a means to persuade you on its strength however this may potentially be misleading.

The reason it may be misleading is because the poly. content is a factor but not the essence that makes the mushroom amazing. Inputs that influence the content % is what the powder is actually s made up of (fruiting body or Mycelium) and where its grown (mycelium is grown on grain, grain as we know is a carbohydrate as such will dramatically overstate the actual content %)

The types of polysaccharides important to fungi and to you specifically are the beta-D-glucans (1-3, 1-6). The 1-3 or 1-6 are specific branching structures unique to fungi. Enough of the organic chemistry jargon…

Why this is important is because bulk of the medicinal mushroom research is based on the effects of these beta-glucans not the poly. content.

 

What does the Fruiting body or Mycelium mean in the context of Lion's Mane?

 

Mushroom extracts are filled with a growing divide between those who prefer whole fruiting bodies and those who prefer the mycelium on grain.

A fruiting body is generally what you would visually recognize as a mushroom. It is fleshy, contains spores, and grows above ground or directly on the surface of its host, like a tree or old log. The mushroom's fruiting body comprises of a stem, cap, and gills, which are what the general populace would eat in a culinary dish, but in nature, it acts primarily as the reproductive component of a fungal system, dispersing spores and inoculating hosts.

Mycelium is the main body and feeding membrane of a mushroom. It grows underground or within the host plant. While it might not look like much, the mycelium acts much like a complex network that can communicate with and adapt to its surrounding environment. Think of it like the roots of the mushrooms.

 

Which one is better Mycelium or the Fruiting body?

 

Fruiting bodies offer a much more effective, high-quality product than mycelium extracts. Fruiting bodies are considered “full spectrum” as they provide a wider array of the mushroom’s nutritional components. Fruiting bodies offer more minerals, including phosphorous, copper, zinc, and potassium. Fruiting body extracts also contain higher concentrations of vitamins, including vitamin C, vitamin D, beta-carotene, and various B vitamins.

Mycelium, on the other hand, was primarily created as a cheaper alternative that was quicker to produce. The benefits of mushroom extracts are studied in relation to the fruiting body. Mycelium actually contains very little of the important compounds, vitamins, and nutrients of the actual mushroom. Furthermore, mycelium is not allowed to be considered a mushroom by the FDA, but many companies in the mushroom extract industry will hide this with clever labels. For instance, instead of listing beta-glucans (the effective compounds in fruiting bodies), mycelium producers will generalize by stating that their product contains high amounts of polysaccharides. This isn’t untrue but only because polysaccharides are a class of carbohydrates, and the brown rice used in mycelium extracts is definitely a carbohydrate. In other words, the high amount of polysaccharides mainly comes from the starch, gluten, and other non-mushroom components in the brown rice.

 

Which one is Chirp Nation Lion's Mane made up of?

 

The product is a 100% fruiting body extract. The extract provides a concentrated form of the glyconutrients and healthy components present in Hericium Erinaceus. The fruiting body is where the magic is.

 

What is the Lion's Mane Beta glucan content?

 

Chirp Nation Lion's Mane is on the top end of the spectrum with an impressive beta glucan content of 30%. It’s the real stuff. #SubtleFlex

 

What is difference between Lion's Mane powder and Lion's Mane Extract?

 

An extract is a preparation that results from taking raw plant material and applying a solvent to it, such as water or alcohol. The solvent causes the dis-solvable compounds to be separated from the structural part of the plant or mushroom.

Extracts contain high levels of the active ingredient a particular herb or mushroom is known for, such as the beta-glucans found in most medicinal mushrooms.

Can't complain

I have ordered these a few times now and have always received everything on time. I use the capsules in the morning and have felt great since starting to use them! My energy levels have increased as well as my focus.

I have also just ordered the mushroom blend powder - would be awesome if this also came in the form of capsules. I find capsules a lot easier to use then powder :) hint hint...
