Hericium erinaceous / Lion's Mane Mushroom / Hedgehog Fungus / Monkey Head Fungus / Hou Tou / Yamabushitake
The striking Lion's Mane mushroom is rare in the wild, typically growing on old or dead broadleaf trees and is a much sought after culinary delicacy.
Hericium erinaceous has one of the highest protein contents of any mushroom as well as high levels of ß-D-glucans and ergosterol. It also contains two families of compounds, the hericinones and erinacines, that strongly stimulate the synthesis of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF).
The mushroom biomass we use to manufacture MycoNutri Hericium erinaceus capsules is grown for us in the USA on sterile grain-based substrate in an FDA regulated facility.
The biomass contains the full spectrum of active metabolites from the mycelium and young fruiting body of the mushroom, including beta-glucans, other intra- and extra-cellular polysaccharides, phytosterols (including ergosterol – provitamin D2), proteoglycans and diterpenoid cyathane derivatives (especially erinacines).
We then blend it with cultured Lion’s Mane fruiting body rich in hericinones in order to capture the full spectrum of this remarkable mushroom.
Recommended adult dosage:

Mushrooms have a long history of therapeutic use in many cultures around the world yet in the West, their potential is often overlooked. This range is developed by a UK born Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner and world leading authority on all things 'mushrooms', Martin Powell. A move to East during his studies allowed him to challenge his inbuilt believe system of 'don't touch the mushrooms' and explore their health giving possibilities with the leading professors at the time. Since returning back to the UK, Martin has devoted a lifetime's work to the study of mushrooms in relation to health and his Myconutri range are the culmination of his dedication to mushroom research and allowing access to the best quality in medicinal mushrooms.
