Why Should I Take Lion's Mane Mushroom 8:1?

Lion’s mane is not only one of the most popular mushrooms, it is also one of the most popular natural nootropics! This is because lion’s mane is chock full of beneficial compounds that help enhance neuroplasticity. These compounds appear to be especially soluble in ethanol, and due to this reason, dual water/ethanol extracts are by far the most preferred form of lion’s mane extract for nootropic effects.

Our 8:1 lion’s mane is a very high quality, fruiting body ONLY extract, which utilizes both water and ethanol during extraction. This helps concentrate the nootropic compounds within lion’s mane, which makes our lion’s mane 8:1 a phenomenal extract for the purposes of enhancing cognitive function!

That all being said, due to the pronounced nootropic effects, it's easy to forget about some of the other amazing benefits of lion’s mane mushroom such as enhancing cardiovascular function, immune health and mood. Our lion’s mane 8:1 will help enhance all of these essential aspects of human health, making our extract a fantastic all rounder for mind and body!

What is Lion's Mane Mushroom?

Lion’s mane mushroom, scientifically known as Hericium erinaceus, is a part of the tooth fungus group and is native to North America, Europe and Asia. It’s long been used both for its bioactivity and as a food source. Lion’s mane actually has a texture that is very similar to lobster and crab, so it is no surprise that this is also a very popular culinary mushroom!

Lion’s Mane is easily identifiable from other mushroom species because of their tall spines that can grow over 1cm. These mushrooms naturally grow in dangly clusters on hardwoods, most commonly at the end of summer and early fall in Asia, Europe and North America.

Lion’s Mane Mushroom 8:1 Dual Extract is standardized to a minimum of 15% Beta-Glucan (β-Glucan).

Lion’s Mane Mushroom Extract Benefits and Uses

    • Promotes cognitive function
    • Enhances mood
    • Promotes cardiovascular function

Dual Water/Ethanol Extract For Maximum Cognitive Benefits

Many different processing methods can be used when creating lion’s mane extracts, each of which has its own unique advantages. For nootropic purposes though, the common consensus is that dual water/ethanol extracts work the best, and we full heartedly agree with this. This is why our potent 8:1 lion’s mane extract utilizes a dual water/ethanol extraction process!

Furthermore, we don’t simply use cheap and ineffective mycelium on grain products, which many mushroom vendors have started to do in recent years. Mycelium on grain products are not representative of the real mushroom whatsoever. In fact, legally, mycelium on grain can’t even be called a mushroom! At Nootropics Depot however, we strictly use ONLY pure high quality lion’s mane fruiting body. This is why our lion’s mane has pronounced acute effects which are not often seen in other lion’s mane products.

In theory, the mycelium of lion’s mane should contain a now quite legendary nootropic compound called Erinacine A, however, we have discovered over the years that this is not as simple as it seems. In fact, through our preliminary research, we have determined that most current commercial mycelium products, especially mycelium on grain products are not very rich sources of erinacine A at all! On the other hand though, high quality lion’s mane fruiting bodies contain lots of different compounds which can have pronounced nootropic effects and these effects are clearly present in our 8:1 lion’s mane fruiting body extract!

You may also be asking yourself, what does 8:1 even mean here? This is because it takes 8kg of raw Lion’s mane mushroom to create just a single kilo of our lion’s mane 8:1 extract. As a result of this high concentration, our lion’s mane 8:1 has pronounced nootropic effects. However, our lion’s mane 8:1 should also concentrate the various different beneficial compounds in lion’s mane which have beneficial effects on cardiovascular function and mood!

Lions Mane Mushroom Stacks

    Abstract and Critical Thinking Enhancement

    I am currently a nursing student, and I've noticed my thought process is a lot different when using Lion's Mane. My grades on exams were also the highest when I was on it and worse with the same amount of study effort off of it. I've noticed that my mind naturally wants to understand new things at a deeper level instead of just trying to finish work as fast as possible.

    Truly one of the few (consistently) helpful extracts. Glad I found this. Good for GI issues as a bonus!

    tried many different lions mane before this one

    like many, i found ND from the nootropics subreddit and I too am familiar with the bad mouthing of paul stammets lions mane product. Well I will admit that this 500mg is stronger than up to 2000mg of host defense, and it is a mich cleaner come up and come down. I love ND and I'll most likely stick with them in the long run, but if you're switching from host defense and you're expecting a night and day difference you might need to lower your expectations. Not to say either of these products are bad, ND is superior, but they're both legit lions mane products.

    No Affect

    Couldn't tell a difference. I feel like these are for someone who has real cognitive issues & those not suffering from them will not feel any affect. Fasting provides a clear increase in cognition but received nothing from this Lions Mane. In the past it made me sleepy, but this time it didn't even do that.

    Still a bit early to judge, but so far my brother is pleased

    The issue with lion's mane is that the studies are lacking, but where there isn't enough scientific certification, this product largely makes up for it with the experience of people. Some anecdotes are more biased than others, some are even outlandish, fueled by great amounts of placebo effect. So, I'll keep it real for you - this won't cure your ADHD. It probably won't cure any other condition. However, it may counteract a few symptoms, and in that regard, I find lion's mane to be a worthy palliative. Not just that, it may prevent exacerbation of said symptoms and it may even drive away some more complex and serious disorders (dementia and Parkinson's, for example. Take it with a grain of salt though, since there are too many variables at play here). Anyhow, by administering this supplement with low expectations, you might keep at bay the placebo while also getting surprised when the thing actually works wonders for you. I'd say it's worth a shot, especially with the 8:1 extract (generally, I wouldn't bother with the 1:1, but whatever floats your boat). That's not to say that you won't get any benefit if you don't suffer from mental hurdles; quite the contrary. My brother, for example, experienced elevated mood, focus, easier recollection of words, decreased irritability, motivation and perhaps a few other subconscious things - only after two days of administration. Not all of these benefits are related to placebo, especially for someone who was skeptical at first. Now, I said two days... Imagine what would happen after a few weeks of consistent and cumulative use. We'll wait and see; in the meantime, I would like to point out that the price is fair considering the quality, but take into account shipping costs as well. Luckily I had to buy a few other things, but if it wasn't for that, I highly doubt I would've paid 40+ dollars for a mere month of use, particularly for something that took one month to arrive. This isn't exactly Nootropics Depot's fault, and the promo codes can only help so much, but the truth is still there. Do you really need this? Then pull the trigger, and if it works, consider ordering in bulk and/or locally instead. If you're in the US, of course this is a non-issue.

    Not noticeable

    I have try taking Lion Mane for a few weeks and maybe I experience some effect but it's not noticeable.

    Sunshine in a bottle

    I believe lion's mane gives me a mood and energy boost that lasts throughout the day. I take it in the morning with caffeine and L-theanine. I get the 8:1 extract for this effect, and take Reishi and chaga for the immune boosting effects.

    NOT subliminal. Finally something you can consciously feel

    The studies that reference Lion's Mane mushroom: are very promising. I've noticed that my working memory has very much improved, and my long-term memory has as well. This may be confirmation bias, but I have noticed that I am picking up things a lot faster, as well.

    Excellent Quality

    This 8:1 extract is very strong. I can literally feel the physical effects in my head within an hour of taking it. I take one in the morning to help me stay focused. The other brands I've tried did nothing. I didn't know the effects of Lions Mane until I found ND brand. These are powerful and work great for focus and for cognition. I'm noticing when I type, my words per minute have improved. It was very noticeable within a few days. I also solve more complex formulas on spreadsheets and cross-spreadsheet calculations have become simpler for me to accomplish. I have to get up and move around more frequently when taking these 8:1's vs the standard 1;1 Lions Mane. I take them both now. The 8:1's on the days that I have reports and have to give presentations. The 1:1 feels better and smoother for daily use. I almost gave up on Lions Mane until I started this brand.

    Lions Mane

    This is an excellent product that one can definitely rely on their results. Best thing for memory help.

  • 5

    Best nootropic and best strain of lion's mane I have had thus far. My level of presence and stress tolerance actually beats when I'm on something line L-theanine, and I somehow feel more of my real personality shine through...definitely would recommend this to most people for just about any situation :)

    Lion's mane - helps with my attention issues.

    Big fan of impulse control, but I'm not a big fan of meds like Adderall. Lion's Mane helps me with my problems around focusing. If I don't take my lions mane - I have issues deciding on what to do and I get overwhelmed by all the things i need to do. I can't take ginseng because my anxiety goes up and I can't focus. Lion's mane is good for focus in an anxious system. It won't calm you down... But it won't make you overly energetic. It can keep me up late if I take lion's mane too late in the day. It supports my abilities to decide what to do so my brain will have a hard time unwinding if I take it too late and try to sleep. I highly recommend lions mane if you have attention issues and are anxious.

    I Like This Company and Their Products But I Felt Nothing

    I didn't do any rigorous testing and I wasn't in a high stress environment or really any environment that I needed to perform so it's hard to say that this didn't do anything for me but I certainly didn't feel any different. I would like to do more research before I say definitively that lions mane is utterly useless for me.

    Lion's Mane Mushroom

    I'm 72. About 8 years ago I started having short term memory loss. My sister also had this problem and took various supplements. I noticed the main ingredient in all of them was Lion's Mane, so I searched for the purest most economical form. This is it! 8:1 Whole Fruiting Body. I've been taking it for 4 years, still forget things occasionally, but am no longer on the downhill slide.

    Take Lion’s Mane

    Listen, it doesn’t matter if you’ve done the research or not. Just but it. Just buy these and put them in your body. Don’t argue, don’t overthink it, just do it. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do, just take Lion’s Mane.
