Lion's Mane tincture is made from fruiting bodies, instead of mycelium, for maximum health benefits.
Lion's Mane is a valuable medicinal mushroom and is currently being studied for its effects on neural health, Alzheimer's, and dementia. The mushroom contains a substance called erinacine, which has the ability to catalyze the production of nerve growth factor (NFG) and reduce the effects of Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative disorders (Yamada et al., 1997). A study in Japan, on men aged 50-80 years old with mild cognitive impairment, suggests that Lion's Mane is effective at improving cognition. Subjects were split into two groups and half were given dry powdered Lion's Mane three times a day and observed over 16 weeks. At weeks 8, 12, and 16, the group taking Lion's Mane scored significantly better on a cognitive test than the other half in the placebo group (Mori et al., 2008).

Tinctures are meant to be used as a dietary supplement and taken 1-3 times daily or as needed. You can take tinctures directly from the bottle or add it to tea, coffee, juice, or water.
