Lion's Mane

Description

Lion's mane is a wonder mushroom that has been used for thousands of years by traditional herbalists to boost digestive health. In modern times, lion's mane has become famed for its nootropic effects, aiding the brain’s plasticity and capacity to function, as well as supporting nervous system regulation.

Favoured as a culinary delicacy as well as a potent herb, lion's mane is a restorative that nourishes those of us who are mentally overwhelmed or trying to digest too much out of life. Being Yin in nature, lion's mane supports the creation of a healthy gut lining and can support those with gastrointestinal upset. It's also a tonic for the immune system, supporting a healthy immune response

The Latin name, Hericium erinaceus, literally translates to 'hedgehog mushroom,' and as the Western name suggests, the cascading fruiting body of the mushroom bears striking resemblance to the mane of a lion. This amazing fungus grows on decaying coniferous trees and is found mostly in Asian continents (although does also feature in North America and some areas of Europe).

Sourcing

All herbs in this formula are sourced Dì Dào from herb-producing regions of China. Sourcing herbs from their spiritual homeland is born from the Taoist philosophy Dì Dào. Dì Dào poetically translates as ‘the way of the Earth’ and shows us where to harvest herbs if we wish to experience the herb’s true Spirit. From its ‘original place’ or ‘spiritual homeland’, a method that results in a product that is both full spectrum and medicinally robust. 

SuperFeast Lion's Mane has been carefully water-extracted and sourced Dì Dào from China's Zhejiang and Heilongjiang regions. Our Lion's Mane is grown in the shade, on mature oak tree chips, and sun-dried before being extracted

Contraindications

To be avoided if you have a known culinary mushroom allergy.

You can enjoy Lion’s Mane any time throughout your day.
We particularly love it in the morning or as an afternoon pick-me-up. 

Frequency

Take Daily.

Dosage

Generally, we recommend taking the herbs daily in small doses, to begin with. This allows you to develop an understanding and acknowledgment of how the herbs are unfolding their medicinal magic for you. Follow the dosage instructions on the package, or start with 1/8 - 1/2 teaspoon per day, adjusting the dose if you feel it necessary within your unique body system.

Doses can be taken as high as two teaspoons per day, however, most people find their sweet spot with 1/2 to one teaspoon per product, per day. We call this sweet spot your "lifestyle dose". We don't recommend taking more than two tablespoons of herbs a day. These extracts are potent, and you want to take care not to overload the body with too much of a good thing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take Lion’s Mane whilst pregnant?

Tonic herbs are generally warming, building, and nourishing. In the context of health optimisation and the Taoist tradition, tonic herbs are not directly used to treat individual symptoms, but instead to create harmony and strength within the system as a whole.

In this regard, we generally only recommend our Reishi and Eucommia Bark during pregnancy as there is quite a lot of empirical use of these herbs in pregnancy in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoist Tonic Herbalism.

Can I take Lion’s Mane while breastfeeding?

Yes, you can use Lion’s Mane whilst breastfeeding. 

We always suggest introducing new herbs slowly and in low doses, this allows the body to adjust and benefits to unfold at a pace relevant to your individual system.
