This seems quite expensive? Actually Lion’s Mane is 90% water so it takes 10kg to produce just 1kg of dried Lion’s Mane. So in effect, you are getting 10x the value but without the water content.
Store away from direct sunlight. Always keep sealed. Comes in a glass jar.

Another study also found that Lion’s Mane was effective in repairing nerve damage in rats (read the study)
Lion’s Mane for tumors: A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that extracts made from Lion’s Mane had a significant effect in reducing the size of cancerous tumors (read the study).
Lion’s Mane, is capable of fortifying the spleen and nourishing the stomach, tranquilizing the mind, and fighting cancer.
