What is the % of Polysaccharides?

Our Lion's Mane contains 50% polysaccharides. 

 

What does the Fruiting body or Mycelium mean in the context of Lion's Mane? 

A fruiting body is generally what you would visually recognize as a mushroom. It is fleshy, contains spores, and grows above ground or directly on the surface of its host, like a tree or old log. The mushroom's fruiting body comprises of a stem, cap, and gills, which are what the general populace would eat in a culinary dish, but in nature, it acts primarily as the reproductive component of a fungal system, dispersing spores and inoculating hosts. 

Mycelium is the main body and feeding membrane of a mushroom. It grows underground or within the host plant. While it might not look like much, the mycelium acts much like a complex network that can communicate with and adapt to its surrounding environment. Think of it like the roots of the mushrooms. 

 

Which one is better Mycelium or the Fruiting body? 

Fruiting bodies are considered “full spectrum” as they provide a wider array of the mushroom’s nutritional components. Fruiting bodies offer more minerals, including phosphorous, copper, zinc, and potassium. Fruiting body extracts also contain higher concentrations of vitamins, including vitamin C, vitamin D, beta-carotene, and various B vitamins. 

Mycelium, on the other hand, was primarily created as a “cheaper” alternative that was quicker to produce. Mycelium unfortunately contains very little of the important compounds, vitamins, and nutrients of the actual mushroom. 

Furthermore, mycelium is not allowed to be considered a mushroom by the FDA, but many companies in the mushroom extract industry will hide this with clever labels.

 

Which one is Antioxi's made up of? 

The product is a 100% fruiting body extract. The extract provides a concentrated form of the glyconutrients and healthy components present in Lion's Mane. The fruiting body is where the magic is. 

 

What is difference between Lion's Mane powder and Lion's Mane Extract? 

An extract is a preparation that results from taking raw plant material and applying a solvent to it, such as water or alcohol. The solvent causes the dissolvable compounds to be separated from the structural part of the plant or mushroom. Extracts contain high levels of the active ingredient a particular herb or mushroom is known for. 

Another advantage of extracts over raw herbs is higher bioavailability – a fancy term that means they are easier for the body to absorb and use. 

 

What are the different extraction methods? 

Currently there are 3 methods of extracting said nutrients: Water, Alcohol and Dual (both). 

A hot water extract is exactly what it sounds like – using hot water to dissolve water-soluble ingredients from raw herbs or mushrooms. The same process is undergone for Alcohol extraction where the water is substituted for alcohol. In some cases, it may be beneficial to use both water and alcohol extraction – a method referred to as a dual or double extraction. 

 

Which extraction method is better? 

When shopping around for mushroom supplements, it is beneficial to know what kind of extraction method is used for your specific product. This will ensure that you are getting a high-quality supplement that actually works. 

If you are looking for a Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail, Shiitake, or Maitake mushroom product, you should look for a hot water extract product. This is because their most important active ingredients – beta-glucans – are water-soluble. Using alcohol or dual extraction for these mushrooms is not desirable, because alcohol would cause some of the beta-glucans to solidify and be filtered out of the liquid. 

On the other hand, the Reishi and Chaga mushrooms benefit from dual extraction because they contain both water-soluble beta-glucans and alcohol-soluble terpenoids. 

 

Is it safe to consume during pregnancy? 

Generally speaking, if you are pregnant or trying to conceive, we recommend seeking medical advice before taking Lion's Mane or any of our other products. 

Furthermore, to date, there has been no concerted investigation into the use of Lion's Mane mushroom in pregnancy and lactation.

Your Lion's Mane Benefits

- "Stimulates and promotes nerve growth and protects the growth of brain cells" 

Lion’s mane contains compounds, Hericenones and Erinacines, which as per studies have shown to stimulate and promote nerve growth and protect the growth of brain cells, which promote learning, memory and cognitive function. Studies have shown Lion's mane to reduce symptoms of memory loss, as well as prevent neuronal damage caused by amyloid-beta plaques, which accumulate in the brain during Alzheimer’s disease. 

- "Help speed recovery from nervous system injuries by stimulating the growth and repair of nerve cells. " 

Studies have shown that the Lion’s Mane mushroom can stimulate the NGF (nerve growth factor) and nerve cell repair of the brain, spinal cord, and retina. Research has further shown that Lion’s Mane may help speed recovery from nervous system injuries by stimulating the growth and repair of nerve cells. 

The NGF (nerve growth factor) plays an essential role in the survival of several cell populations. Lower than normal levels of NGF have been linked to early stages of both Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Therapeutic interest has largely focused on its importance for neurological function, but the NGF plays a much wider role in maintaining homoeostasis in the body. It is known to have angiogenic and antioxidant properties. Reduced levels of the NGF have been associated with cardiovascular diseases and metabolic syndromes, including type 2 diabetes.

- "Stimulates the Nerve growth factor" 

Research has shown that the compounds, Hericenones and Erinacines, both present in Lion's Mane have been can stimulate the nerve growth factor (NGF). Lower than normal levels of NGF have been linked to early stages of Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Lion's mane has thus become of interest in preventing as well as managing Alzheimer's disease & dementia.

- "Suppresses the immune-mediated inflammatory process

Research has shown that the compounds, Hericenones and Erinacines, both present in Lion's Mane have been can stimulate the nerve growth factor (NGF). The NGF has been shown to have a protective effect on axons and myelin by suppressing the immune-mediated inflammatory process which is responsible for chronic brain destruction in disorders such as MS by switching the immune response to an anti-inflammatory, suppressive mode in a brain-specific environment.

ADD SOME EXTRA GOODNESS

Reishi Powder

Reishi is a polypore fungus belonging to the genus Ganoderma. The mushroom contains several molecules, including triterpenoids, polysaccharides and peptidoglycans, which have been in the focus point for its many health benefits.

Both polysaccharides and triterpenes from Reishi exhibit neuroprotective and anticonvulsant effects. The spores from Reishi have shown ability to protect neurons from apoptosis (cell death) and improve cognitive dysfunction. Reishi has also been shown to have potential benefits in Alzheimer’s disease. Lion's mane and Reishi together thus make for an incredible cognitive booster and Brain health supporter
