Lion’s Mane mushroom, scientifically known as ‘Hericium erinaceus’, has been revered for centuries across various cultures for both its unique appearance and potential health benefits.

How is Lion’s Mane grown?

Lion’s Mane typically requires a substrate like dead wood to grow, although we grow ours using certified organic brown rice. In this method, the mushroom consumes the brown rice as its food source. Once the mushroom is ready to harvest, it has consumed virtually all of the brown rice and what’s left is the mycelium and fruiting body.

Mushrooms are nature’s sponges and will absorb any heavy metals and pollutants in the air or water, so it’s incredibly important that they’re grown in a clean environment. We grow our Lion’s Mane right here in Australia, to the highest certified organic standards, to ensure it’s the best quality on the planet.
