Does Lion’s Mane Extract Work?

does lion's mane extract work?

In the world of functional mushrooms, Lion’s Mane has been making waves as the latest must-have for cognitive health.

And with so many mushroom brands in the market offering different forms of this incredible super food, it can be easy to end up purchasing a supplement that leaves a lot to be desired. 

The most common question we see around is, ‘Does Lion’s Mane extract work?’

We’ve said it time and again – isolated extracts simply cannot match the effectiveness of whole food superfoods.

Think about it this way – choosing a processed vitamin supplement over a fresh, ripe orange. While both may contain vitamin C, the natural form found in the orange comes with additional nutrients, fibre, and antioxidants that work together to provide greater health benefits.

The cheaper option – at what cost?

Extracts are typically a lot cheaper to produce, which is why so many brands offer them. That’s because they only require a small amount of the whole food to be diluted into a large amount of extract. You may think you’re getting a better deal, but you’d have to consume a whole lot more to experience a slither of the benefits of its whole food form. 

While some argue that extracts are more potent due to their concentration of active compounds, our whole foods consistently boast higher levels of these very same active compounds. 

So, why opt for whole food Lion’s Mane?

While isolated extracts claim to offer concentrated doses of certain compounds (the question is – how much?), they lack the full spectrum of compounds from the whole food.

By consuming Lion’s Mane in its natural form, you’re not only benefiting from its key bioactive compounds but also from the myriad other nutrients and antioxidants it contains.

Our Lion’s Mane is grown organically right here in Australia, and simply freeze dried to lock in its nutrients. We also include its mycelium, for additional bioactive compounds and gut boosting benefits.
