New Roots Herbal Lion’s Mane, 120 Caps
Lion’s mane (Hericium erinaceus) extract (40% polysaccharides) is a rich source of beta-glucans, polysaccharides that stimulate immune functions.
Lion’s mane is a magnificent member of the mushroom kingdom that’s found in North America as well as Europe and Asia. Our lion’s mane is cultivated in shade-free, climate-controlled greenhouses, reducing strain on the natural supply of this medicinal mushroom as commercial demand grows.
New Roots Herbal’s Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) is a hot water–extracted medicinal mushroom formula standardized to contain 40% polysaccharides (500 mg per capsule). Hot-water extraction is critical in obtaining a high-quality and effective mushroom product, and is the traditional Asian method of extraction. In the whole mushroom, polysaccharides are bound by indigestible cell wall comprised of chitin; chitin must be dissolved through hot water in order to gently release the medicinal components, the mushroom polysaccharides. Conversely, grinding the mushroom may cause damage to the long-chain polysaccharides and fails to remove the indigestible chitin (fibre), limiting the amount of therapeutic constituents that can be fit per capsule. Standardization ensures that the final product contains a consistent amount of polysaccharides to allow delivery of a therapeutic dose.
