Benefits and Uses*
Lion's Mane, the pom-pom mushroom, has a unique droopy hanging appearance that appears to flow with gravity and glow creamy white. The part we see is called the 'fruiting-body', but there is also a unseen part of the mushroom inside the tree it grows on, this inner part of the mushroom branches-out like nerves, or perhaps like circuitry on a motherboard, and is called the 'mycelium', which is the communication network of the natural ecosystem.*
Lion's Mane is a Potent Medicinal Mushroom.*
It is an effective brain and nerve tonic that has unique digestive, nerve-centering, and cognitive supporting benefits.*
Lion's mane centers feelings in a way that make one feel grounded to the Earth so cognition is supported, such as with focused thinking and memory.* These centering benefits are unique to lion's mane's, because of its ability to support nerve growth-factors that specifically protect and benefit nerve health.*
Lion's Mane Balances The Nervous System:*
- Regenerate nerves.*
- Calming the stomach.*
There are two large clusters of nerves in the body that have a mutual relationship for emotional and nervous health:*
- The Brain
- The Gut
Lion's Mane Promotes Immunity in the Digestive Track.*
Polysaccharides and glucans unique to lion’s mane support the immune system and protect the coating of gastric lining in the gut and on the outside of nerve cells in the brain, spine and throughout the body.*
Lion's Mane Is An Adaptogen.*
Strengthening the stomach supports harmony of the nervous system and as a result benefits thinking, memory, enhanced concentration, and results in a balancing emotional responses to stress.*
Lion’s mane use also promotes nerve health due to ‘terpenoids’ which stimulate the production of peptides known as ‘nerve growth factors’ that regenerate nerves in the gut and in the brain.* This supports our capacity for increasing cognition and understanding, thus promoting calm thinking and improving concentration during tasks.*
Lion’s Mane Fortifies The Nervous System.*
It contains trace mineral salts that assist in nerve impulse transmission; thereby directly increasing muscular nerve response and cognitive function.*
- Distractions diminish while cognitive focus and clarity improves.*
- Memory is more accessible and more reliable.*
These tonic benefits require consistent consumption over time where regeneration and health-promotion may be accomplished.*

Lion's Mane Mushroom Dosage Equation:
The dosage of most tonics work by bodyweight and activity level and dietary factors. The amount of lion's mane mushroom taken is highly dependent on activity level of the brain and nervous system through thinking and mental work.
BW + AL + DF
- Bodyweight (BW) is the overall weight measured by a bathroom or locker room scale.
- Activity level (AL) is a relative unit based on the amount of work accomplished, stress-levels and fitness-intensity.
- Diet factors (DF) are based on how much calories and food is taken in, such as protein, fat and carbohydrates.
Estimated Daily Dosage:
BW = 1 dropper per ~150 pounds bodyweight reached
AL = + 1-3+ droppers - 1-2 low, 2-3 medium, 3+ high
DF = + 1 dropper for every 3000 kcal reached
Example #1: 185lb person (BW = 1 dropper) who is going to work programming computer code (AL = 3+ droppers) and eats ~2250 kcals (DF = 0 dropper) would have a functional dosage of ~4+ droppers daily divided into 1-3 doses across the day.
Example #1 is BW 1 + AL 3 + DF 0 = ~4+ droppers
Example #2: 135lb person (BW = 0 dropper) who is going to read a book for several hours in addition to working a day job (AL = 2-3 droppers) who eats ~1500 kcals (DF = 0 dropper) would have a functional dosage of ~2-3 droppers daily divided into 1-3 doses across the day.
Example #2 is BW 0 + AL 2-3 + DF 0 = 2-3 droppers
To find a functional dose, start with a minimum dose of 10 drops to 1 dropper and work up to a functional dose.* Many benefits of tonics come from consistent and continued use over a period of time.*
Lion's mane dropper:
- 60 1ml droppers in a 2oz (60ml) bottle
- 1ml dropper = ~1000 mgs lion's mane mushroom extract
Lion's mane drops:
- 30 drops in a 1ml dropper
- 1 drop = ~33 mgs lion's mane mushroom extract
Suggested Lion's Mane Mushroom Cycle:*
- Initial Phase = 7-60 days
- Long Term = ∞
- Optional Cycle-off Period = 14-30 days
Continuous consumption of lion's mane mushroom will yield increasing benefits and results over the time consumed; in other words, consistent daily consumption of lion's mane mushroom at a functional dosage over the period of suggested time will increase health and wellness benefits.*
After an initial cycle lion's mane mushroom may be continued on-and-off for long-term supplementation health benefits or traded-out for another tonic adaptogen superfood.*
How to Take
Lion's Mane mushroom is a medicinal mushroom and may be taken for its common uses concerning immunity, but where lion's mane mushroom particularly excels is brain, nerve and digestive health.*
Lion's mane mushroom is versatile and is best taken before meals and snacks, but it may also be taken on an empty stomach.*
The addition of probiotics in the daily diet will further activate the constituents in the extraction for easy assimilation.*
Benefits with tonics take time; taking enough consistently rewards health †
Take as desired: consume on a continuous basis to develop the natural tonic and adaptogenic benefits that build over time.* Some benefits are immediate and some results require consumption over several days and weeks to accomplish.* A good tonic cycle is 45-90 days of a tonic adaptogen which will generate lasting health changes.*
Shake gently: secure the lid and turn the bottle over back-and-forth 3-5 times to evenly distribute the tincture. Do not over-shake as the vigorous mixing of air with the extract will oxidize and damage many of the necessary constituents for required dosage and potency.
By mouth: hold the liquid under the tongue for 60-90 seconds and then swallow the rest of extract; doing so allows digestion to begin in the mouth and will take advantage of the activated multi-step extract so that many of the constituents will bypass digestion and enter the body through the mouth and throat.* Holding the extract also promotes better absorption and assimilation and elicits an immediate effect that is performance oriented*
Mix with water: squirt the drops or entire droppers into 2-4 oz. of water that is under 120*F. Water that is cool to lukewarm temperature is best to preserve the volatile and fragile constituents from being damaged and denatured which will reduce the potency of the extract.* Sip slowly to allow absorption in the mouth and throat.* This method makes it easier to become accustomed to the extract and to take larger doses of several different tinctures at once in a tonic program.*
For maximum potency: regularly consume the tincture within a period of 45 days; after 45 days of continuous consumption the extract may begin to gradually lose potency requiring a larger dosage to achieve similar benefit.* A bottle will generally last 10-30 days depending on dosage and concurrent supplementation programming.*

Questions and Answers
Common questions about Lion's Mane supplementation.
Please submit any question via our contact form.
Q: How many servings per bottle?
A: Depends on dosage. At once a day with an average dose of 2 droppers a day a bottle will last a month. Some days you may take more or less, but for most people a bottle will last 2-4 weeks. What is important is to be consistent with the dosages over the month for best results. See dosage guidelines for more info. Be sure to check out the bulk deals where you can save 10% on 2 bottles or 15% on 3 bottles to run a good cycle for 1 -2 months.
Q: After taking 1 Dropper Lion's Mane for 3 Days I have Upset Stomach?
A: Upset stomach is common when taking supplements without enough water and food. Discontinue for a couple days and start again, be sure to drink enough fluids and take your Lion's Mane with complete meals for best results. Also you may want to take your Lion's Mane dropper in some water. See How to Take a Tonic Tincture for more info.
Q: Thank you for such a quick reply. I was taking it with a full meal, but I will retry after a couple of days. It's nice to know there's great support behind the product.
A: Okay, maybe it is a detox action as other clients have reported the same. Sometimes clients report that this may happen to their digestive track. Be sure to eat enough quality protein in the full meal and perhaps add a digestive tea to settle the stomach like ginger or chamomile or peppermint or any combination of these.
