Dr. Nick Notes
Found in high-vibe herbal elixirs nation-wide, Lion’s Mane mushroom is currently quite popular in lives of herbalists and mainstream society alike. This is one of the first medicinal mushrooms I’ve risen in love with, and one that I literally feel the benefits when I choose to take this into my body. Our friend Cameron Meeks (Myriad Mycology) became a local supplier and empowered us to experiment ultrasonically with this mushroom in 2019.
Lion’s Mane fruiting body contains a nerve growth factor which is believed to support neuroplasticity and aiding with memory, focus and general brain function. Traditionally Lion’s Mane is considered a tonic herb which can support the brain with daily usage. When I take ½ - 1 dropperful sublingually for 30-60 seconds, I find a subtle and sustained burst of clarity in the mind, and a minor background of enhanced energy. Usually with our Ultrasonic Lion’s Mane Extract Tincture, I witness these enhancements in about 2-3 minutes (a bit longer than a majority of our tinctures).
Lion’s Mane mushroom has been evaluated through many scientific papers (see our references) and suggest a multitude of beneficial functions outside of cognitive function. One review of the literature suggests the following benefits may be conferred from health-promoting properties of the mushroom fruit bodies, mycelia, and bioactive pure compounds: antibiotic, anticarcinogenic, antidiabetic, antifatigue, antihypertensive, antihyperlipodemic, antisenescence, cardioprotective, hepatoprotective, nephroprotective, and neuroprotective properties and improvement of anxiety, cognitive function, and depression. 
Studies suggest that Lion’s Mane contains Nerve Growth Factors (NGF) which may contribute to neurogenesis with consistent usage. “Nerve growth factor (NGF) is essential for the maintenance of the basal forebrain cholinergic system. Hericenones and erinacines isolated from the medicinal mushroom Hericium erinaceus can induce NGF synthesis in nerve cells.”  This study also suggested the following conclusion:
“The aqueous extract (as produced by Essential Oil Wizardry) of H. erinaceus contained neuroactive compounds which induced NGF-synthesis and promoted neurite outgrowth in NG108-15 cells. The extract also enhanced the neurite outgrowth stimulation activity of NGF when applied in combination. The aqueous preparation of H. erinaceus had neurotrophic but not neuroprotective activities.”
Our Ultrasonic Lion’s Mane Extract is a rich and bioavailable concentrate which is then artisanally blended with a host of other minerals, Structured Spring Water, Organic Craft Spirits (Orange) and most recently enhanced with the patented Champion Water-Soluble C60! Get ready for a whole new level of brilliance in a bottle with our Ultrasonic Lion’s Mane Extract Tincture ~ In-Joy!
How to Use
We find for our Ultrasonic Extracts, sublingual absorption held for 30-60 seconds, leads to better subjective absorption / effects. Lion’s Mane may synergize it’s effects with a Bioavailable B-Complex - Paul Stamets has noted synergy with Niacin and another psychotropic mushroom to support neurogenesis.
