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!

    Lion’s mane

    Great product I’m having problems with the nerve in my l4+l5 and after a couple month’s it’s not hurting near as bad.

    Excellent product

    After 2 months, here's what I noticed. I take it once in the afternoon (1 or 2pm) maybe 3 to 4 times a week - improves memory, creativity and sleep (very deep sleep with vivid dreams) - gives boost of energy + better focus - boosts confidence, improves speech (easier to gather your thoughts and find the right words when speaking) - improves mood and curiosity High quality product, I highly recommand

    Lion's Mane

    After a couple weeks I really started to see a difference. My focus is much better, I am excited to see more long term benefits.

    Too soon to tell

    I am giving this 3 stars for now, because I haven't noticed much by way of cognitive improvement. Sometimes these things take time, so I am giving myself a couple of months before I make a final determination.

    Lions Mane 8:1

    I began to notice the effects in about a week. Twice per day seems to be much more effective to me. Reaction time, processing speed, and recall have all been increased. It is not a magic pill. You likely will not suddenly be doing complex equations if you are not keen to do so already, but a definitive, subtle boost is definitely apparent.

    OK product

    Ive been using this product for more that 3 weeks now, I can’t say I’ve seen major amelioration, in that case I can’t tell if it works or not. Not for me.

    Greetings from India. It was a little too potent for me the first 2-3 days but thereafter when i got used to it, I felt excellent. My overall mood was better, i was thinking clearly and brain fog was gone. I plan to keep using this for a long time. 10 days in I already see a big improvement. I have heard that lions mane produces a cumulative effect, taken over time. Really hopeful. Recommend this to everyone.

    Works well!

    Me and my wife both started using this and it works well! Before taking these I had jitters and communication stops. Now when I present meetings they are much smoother and the jitters are gone! Full disclosure I I also stack it with ashwagandha and stress is at an all time low. Really good product I highly recommend!

    NO Effect

    This product is demotivating....After taking only one capsule I feel like i want to lay in bed all day...If you lack energy or motivation I would stay clear of this one and go straight for Phenylpiracetam...

    The best on the market

    These are the best on the market IMO, as per usual with ND. Smell delicious, no side effects, lifts brainfog, take it in the morning and stack it with caffeine for optimum results. LM boosts test for me and Reishi reduces it, so I take LM in the AM and Reishi before bed. Highly recommended.

    I'm sure this extract is high quality and nootropics depot has great customer service but immediately one hour after taking this i found myself very tired, irritable, and with a headache. I can't say for sure that its because of it but its hard to believe that its a coincidence. I think research in humans is lacking to prove that this supplement is beneficial. Sucks that I'm stuck with 59 capsules now. They should offer more sample packages.

    Not sure if it did the job

    I get vivid dreams if I take it at night, and that's all the things I've noticed when taking it.

    Ive tried many brands - This is the premium one.

    I feel like Ive seen it all with Lions Mane. In my personal experience, this has been the single best version, although I have to take 2-3 pills to feel it. I find Lions Mane works best in occasional high dosages. So it is pretty expensive. But if you buy cheap garbage then youre literally just throwing your money away. I'd only rate this product a 4.5/5 because it runs a little costly, and for now Im going to sit tight while ND rolls out their new and improved formula. Dont be afraid to order this for now though. I generally feel like adaptogens or whatever, these plant-specific molecules, are often most effective after your body has figured out what the heck theyre supposed to do, and one small bottle of this would be the perfect introduction to the stuff if youre new to it. misteryouresodumb or whatever his name is spoke on reddit about how the ND team is working with a world-class lions mane expert to come up with new <unspecified> that should increase the concentrations of those special compounds I mentioned to unprecedented levels. Bless ND for looking into nutrient concentrations.

    Didn't work for me

    I've tried it for atleast 2 weeks and I haven't noticed much of a difference to be honest. I'll keep trying until I finish the bottle though.
