Product Information

Best Known For

Did you know?

Boosts Brain Health: Lion's Mane mushrooms contain compounds called hericenones and erinacines, which have been shown to stimulate the growth of brain cells and improve cognitive function. This makes Lion's Mane a powerful nootropic, often used to enhance memory, focus, and mental clarity.

Supports Nervous System Repair: Lion's Mane has neuroprotective properties that can help protect against nerve damage and may even aid in the repair of damaged nerves. This makes it a promising supplement for conditions like neurodegenerative diseases and peripheral nerve injuries.

Directions for Use

The daily serving / dose for this extract is 1000mg, or about 1/2 teaspoon per day. Because the density and weight of each extract can vary, it is best to measure out 1000mg (1 gram) on a kitchen scale to be precise, but a little more or less is not a concern.
This extract can be easily added to a cup of coffee or tea, a smoothie or shake, or into soups or other foods.
While there is no "best time" to take it, we find that mornings are best because of the energy boost that is often associated with it.

Here is some more detailed information to help you.

Product Attributes

Fruiting body vs Mycelium and Spores

There is a lot of discussion around which parts of the mushroom should be used for extraction. Here is a short explanation:
In mushrooms, the part that is typically used for extracting nutrients and compounds is the fruiting body, which is the visible part of the mushroom that emerges above ground. This is because the fruiting body contains most of the bioactive compounds, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other beneficial substances.

The fruiting body is rich in nutrients and bioactive compounds because it is where the reproductive structures of the mushroom develop. These structures contain various substances that the mushroom needs for growth and reproduction, as well as compounds that help defend against pathogens and predators.

However, it's worth noting that different parts of the mushroom may have different nutritional profiles and concentrations of bioactive compounds. For example, some mushrooms also produce mycelium, the underground network of fungal threads, which can also contain valuable nutrients and compounds. Additionally, certain species of mushrooms may have medicinal properties associated with specific parts of the organism, such as the mycelium or even the spores. Therefore, the specific part of the mushroom used for extraction can depend on the desired nutrients or compounds and the intended use.

We always use the fruiting body for our extracts but we are also working on developing special compound extracts from other parts like the mycelium and spores. Keep an eye on our blogs and subscribe to our newsletter to get notified of these advancements as they happen.

Extraction Process

We use a very unique and effective dual or triple extraction process that includes enzymatic extraction, hot water extraction and even solvent extraction for certain mushrooms and/or desired compounds. This ensures that all of the beneficial nutrients are extracted from the mushroom fruiting body. It also breaks down the chitin.

Chitin is like the tough armor that mushrooms wear, similar to how insects have their exoskeletons. This armor protects the mushroom's cells, but it's tough for our bodies to break down and use as food.

For us to get the nutrients from mushrooms, we need to break down this armor into smaller, digestible parts. Enzymes called chitinases do this job. They break down the chitin into smaller pieces that our bodies can absorb and use for energy.

So, without breaking down chitin, we can't get the nutrients from mushrooms.

Botanical Information

For Pets

Lion's mane extract powder is used in pets to support cognitive functions, reduce anxiety, and boost immune health. This supplement, often added to pet food, is rich in bioactive substances that may promote nervous system health and overall wellness. Regular use can potentially improve memory and reduce inflammation. It is also believed to help with digestive health by fostering beneficial gut bacteria, which is essential for a healthy immune response in animals.

The daily dose for dogs and cats is about 10 mg per pound mixed into their food.
For example, if your dog is 50 pounds, they would get 500 mg or about a quarter teaspoon.

If you have any questions or if you'd like dosage information for a different type of pet, please feel free to ask us - info@ecogenya.com. We are always happy to help :)
