About Lion's Mane

One of the most valued culinary and medicinal mushrooms in Traditional Asian medicine (TAM).  It’s also known as ‘Yamabushitake’ or ‘mountain priest fungus’ – named after the Yamabushi Buddhist monks who, like this mysterious mushroom, prefer a solitary life.

On dying or dead oak, walnut, beech, maple, sycamore, and other broad-leaf trees. It is saprotrophic and grows primarily on hardwood. (Stamets & Wu, 2002)

Dosage & Use

Recommended Dosage:

1-2ml daily, either diluted in tea, coffee, water, food or taken directly from dropper to mouth. Do not exceed this.

NB. extract may lose some efficacy/bioavailability with the addition of hot temperatures (adding to hot drinks) as the final product contains a cold water portion in its ratio. So ideally taking dropper to mouth.
