Organic Lion's Mane, Water & Alcohol
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
1-3 full droppers in any beverage
2-3 times a day
Lion’s mane mushrooms, Hericium Erinaceus, are large, white, shaggy mushrooms that resemble a lion’s mane as they grow. Like many powerfully medicinal mushrooms, Lion’s mane has been known for some time in parts of Asia to be great for various body functions and conditions. Maybe the most thoroughly researched feature is its impact on brain cells and related functions. Lion's Mane contains erinacine and hericenones, which can help fight depression (Chong et al., 2019), anxiety, and may have revolutionary impact on neurodegenerative diseases (Roda et al., 2021) and traumatic brain injuries (D'Amico et al., 2021). Lion's Mane has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, protect and support liver function (Cui et al., 2016), prompt healthy digestion (Diling et al., 2017), help improve immune functions (Dilling et al., 2017), may reduce risk for heart disease and cancers (Winder, Mateusz et al., 2021).
* What is a tincture? A tincture is an alcoholic derivative herb. Tinctures are effective in extracting the medicinal components and preserving them for longer periods of time. Tinctures are also great because they're simple to use and easily absorbed by the body.
This tincture is about 70 percent water extracted and 30 percent alcohol extracted, “Dual extracted”. This provides both of the best worlds to fully extract all the bio-active compounds found in the fungi.
Store in a cool dark place for up to two years
