Lion's Mane (Hericium erinaceus) is a type of medicinal mushroom that has gained popularity for its potential health benefits. People consume Lion's Mane in various forms, including powders, supplements, teas, and edibles. Here are some reasons why people take Lion's Mane:
- Cognitive Enhancement: Lion's Mane is believed to promote nerve growth factor (NGF) synthesis, which plays a key role in maintaining and regenerating neurons. Some studies suggest that Lion's Mane may have potential cognitive-enhancing properties, improving memory and concentration.
- Neuroprotective Effects: Preclinical studies (mainly in rodents) have shown that Lion's Mane may have neuroprotective properties, potentially helping in conditions like Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.
- Mood Enhancement: Some evidence suggests that consuming Lion's Mane can help with symptoms of anxiety and depression. The exact mechanisms are still under research, but it's believed that the mushroom's influence on brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and nerve growth factor (NGF) might play a role.
- Immune System Support: Like many other medicinal mushrooms, Lion's Mane might have immune-boosting properties, enhancing the body's ability to fight off pathogens.
- Antioxidant Properties: Lion's Mane has demonstrated antioxidant activities, which can help counteract the damaging effects of free radicals in the body.
- Digestive Health: Traditionally, Lion's Mane was used to support digestive health. It's believed to have anti-inflammatory properties that can be beneficial for the gut.
- Cancer: Preliminary studies have shown that Lion's Mane may have anti-tumor properties. However, this area requires further rigorous research to draw definitive conclusions.
Lion's mane has a malty, broth-like taste and can be enjoyed either sweet or savoury.

- ENRICHD Lion's Mane is a 10:1 DUAL extract whereby the extraction process was conducted using both the purified water AND the alcohol extract; this is very important for the neurotrophic properties.
Lion's Mane (H. Erinaceus) is reputed and studied for supporting brain function and neurotrophic potential.
"The two most well-known benefits of consuming lion’s mane are the potential ability to prevent or protect the spread of neurodegenerative disease and cancer." Dr Axe
It's known in the foodie health world and the science community as a "nootropic" and we also like to call Lion's Mane the "Mushroom of Focus and Comprehension" because of our personal experiences with it. It feels like we can comprehend and articulate larger volumes of information more easily and effectively.
ENRICHD Lion's Mane is a 10:1 DUAL extract whereby the extraction process was conducted using both the purified water AND the alcohol extract; this is very important for the neurotrophic properties.
ENRICHD Lion's Mane was grown in pristine conditions in pristine mountains and grown on the right wood for potency. We prefer to share wood-grown mushrooms for this simple reason. Heavy metal and agro testing on every batch.
LION'S MANE SCIENCE TIME
"Neurotrophic factors are important in promoting the growth and differentiation of neurons ... The aqueous preparation of H. Erinaceus <Lion's Mane> had neurotrophic but not neuroprotective activities."
This is great news because it means that Lion's Mane mushroom may support the growth of neurons! That must have been the feeling I feel when I drink it, sharpness and focus...
