What is Lion's Mane?
Lion's Mane ( Hericium Erinaceus ) is a super food and nootropic for your brain, that has been used for centuries in ancient Chinese medicine for not only mental health but immunity. This food was so rare and so profound for the cognitive benefits that once upon a time, only royalty were permitted to reap the benefits of it.
Effects on the Brain
Hericium Erinaceus stimulates the production of the protein Nerve Growth Factor (NGF). NGF is critical to healthy development, but it also keeps nerve cells healthy and can even repair nerve damage. The traditional problem with using NGF therapeutically is that it can't simply be given to a patient in a pill or an injection because NGF is too large a molecule to pass through the blood-brain barrier, so it doesn't reach the central nervous system. It has to be made in the brain. Researchers have tried working around this using gene therapy but certain foods, like Hericium Erinaceus, can affect enzymes that lead to increased NGF secretion. Ultimately, this trait may result in Hericium Erinaceus being used as supplemental therapy in treating peripheral nerve damage, eye problems, and even Memory problems. Amazingly, that's not the only way Hericium Erinaceus might help our health.
First, let's talk about nerve cells, otherwise known as neurons. Neurons aren't like other cells. Neurons have a cell body and a wire-like structure called an axon that varies in length depending on where it winds up in the body. So one nerve cell might be six feet long or more. That part of the neuron, the axon, has a protective insulation around it called the myelin sheath, made of the fatty protein myelin. Myelin is a critical part of a neuron that enables proper transmission of signals from one end of the axon to the other; from the brain to some part of the body. In Alzheimer's, Multiple Sclerosis, and several other conditions, the disease progression involves the degradation of myelin, so that nerves don't work correctly anymore. It turns out that Hericium Erinaceus promotes faster growth and regrowth of myelin, meaning that it may play a role in preventing and treating these vexing conditions. Several other studies found that Hericium Erinaceus consumption improved the mental abilities of people with a generalized age-related cognitive decline and had a positive impact on mood and focus, reducing participants' feelings of sadness, tension, & worried thoughts. Many of the neurological health benefits of Hericium Erinaceus are believed to come from compounds called triterpenes, two of which are unique to Hericium Erinaceus and is named after hericenone and erinacine.
Many of the neuro-protective properties of Hericium Erinaceus are due to compounds called triterpenes. These triterpenes aren't like the other components of Lion's Mane, which are pulled out by hot water. Triterpenes have to be released by soaking in alcohol. Because of this, our products are prepared by using and combining the results of an ethanol (alcohol) extraction, a decoction extraction, (called a dual-extract) combined with a glycerite extract. The dual extract method gives you the benefits of every aspect of the ingredients. You won’t get the same results from ingesting dried Hericium Erinaceus powder supplements or eating the whole fruit body. Our product is better than other dual extracts because we use a special process to remove the excess alcohol from the ethanol extraction, so there is no alcohol in the final product and it is not bitter, the final glycerite extract creates a sweet and pleasant taste for the final product, while still reaping the benefits and activation of the dual extract!
The reason why our Lion's Mane products are better than other competing products containing Hericium Erinaceus is not only because it is double extracted but because it is triple extracted, and also because most brands mostly contain grains that the mycelium (roots) of Hericium Erinaceus grows in for nutrients, and not the actual Hericium Erinaceus fruitbody, which contains more of the beneficial compounds. Why do they do this? It is cheaper, easier, and faster to produce than actually fruiting the Hericium Erinaceus. That would be the equivalent of planting seeds in dirt and before the plant grows, the roots and dirt are processed into a herbal supplement. Grains and mycelium will not benefit the supplement more than dirt and roots would! The fruit of Hericium Erinaceus provides more benefits, works better, and contains more of the beneficial compounds. Other competitors also have products that contain ~20% alcohol, which doesn't taste pleasant and may not be suitable for some people. We extract the alcohol once the triterpenes are activated, and the final extract does not contain alcohol and is sweet to the taste. Most alcohol-free Hericium Erinaceus extracts do not include the dual extraction methods, which are the best way to activate the medicinal compounds.
The Hericium Erinaceus contained in our product, Cognitive Coherency, is grown and manufactured by Coherium in the USA, so you know exactly where it is coming from. We take pride in developing and Producing our product independently from scratch, and do not source our Hericium Erinaceus from any other supplier.
