Learn about Lion's Mane

Lion's mane is one of the best known functional mushrooms today and not just because of its unique and distinctive looks! It has a range of powerful recognised health benefits.

Native to North America, Europe and Asia, the Lion’s mane mushroom has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to support all things brain related. Perhaps lesser known, is its use as tonic for stomach and digestive issues.

“Lion’s mane is a no-brainer for cognitive support and improvement.”

Known to improve focus, mental clarity, and to be a memory booster, Lion’s mane is also shown to actually support nerve growth. Its compounds that do this are exceptionally able to cross the brain/blood barrier, meaning that Lion's mane also contributes to the repair and regeneration of neurons - one smart mushroom! Studies are ongoing in this area as it could have big implications for the prevention and treatment of Dementia and Alzheimers, as well as supporting healthy brain function.

We use Lion's Mane in our Flow State coffee for its reputation for cognition support.
