What is Hericium erinaceus?

Hericium erinaceus, also known as Lion’s Mane, is an edible mushroom that belongs to the tooth fungus group. Lion’s mane mushroom is native to Asia, North America, and Europe. Lion’s mane grows in clusters and has long spines that lend it nicknames like the pom pom mushroom, bearded tooth mushroom, satyr’s beard, bearded hedgehog mushroom, or bearded tooth fungus. In the wild, these mushrooms grow late in the summer and early fall on hardwood trees. The American Beech tree is known for being home to Lion’s mane mushroom clusters.

Hericium erinaceus has a long history of use in traditional Chinese practices. A rat study conducted in 2005 showed some compounds in the mushroom, like threitol, D-arabinitol, and palmitic acid, may have oxidation regulating benefits. More recently and more relevant to human use, is a 2013 review of scientific studies, which asserted the benefits of the mushroom by saying "This mushroom is rich in some physiologically important components, especially β-glucan polysaccharides, which may support healthy cellular function, promote immunity and health, and display neuro-protective benefits."

Hericium erinaceus Benefits and Uses

    • May help support cognitive function

    • May help promote cardiovascular health

    • May help support mitochondrial health

What is 8:1 Extract?

Hericium erinaceus carries a multitude of polysaccharides, such as Beta glucan, heteroglycans, heteroxylans, and several cyanthane derivative triterpenes referred to as hericenone and erinacine. The 8:1 lion's mane extract is created from a dual extract solvent method using both water and ethanol. Various compounds within lions mane are only soluble in ethanol. The hericenones that promote cognitive, cardiovascular, and mitochondrial health are only ethanol soluble. Lion’s mane mushroom research has found specific hericenones believed to be responsible for these benefits. These hericenones are known as 3-hydroxyhericenone F, Hericenone B, and Hericenones C, D & E. This extract is referred to as 8:1 because you need 8kg of raw lion's mane mushroom to produce a single kilo of lions mane 8:1 extract. The hericenone and erinacine compounds are considered to be responsible for the cognitive benefits of this species.

    Subtle Effects

    I've been taking Lions Mane for about 3 weeks with the recommended serving size. I expected it to change my life, which is never the attitude to have when trying something new. The effects were subtle but they were there. The biggest effect I've seen is having vivid dreams. I haven't been able to remember my dreams for years. I took my dose before bed about 4 days ago and I had such an odd dream and I can still remember it as I'm typing this. The y're kind of like nightmares but I don't feel scared rather just like "wow, this is bizarre."I also feel like my memory has increased, mostly short term. I have been remembering forgotten memories. These effects are subtle and not often but they're there. I am studying organic chemistry and I don't see a difference in my memory/cognitive function. I definitely think this is also dependent on my dose. I wouldn't buy this nootropic again with these effects but I'm definitely looking forward to increasing my dose.

    It comes with side effects

    It had beneficial effects on mood and memory, but it lowered my libido. Be warned.

  • Cory - 21st Feb 2021

    Double edged sword

    This stuff worked great for focus, cognition and mood for me. However I lost sex drive after taking it for some time. After doing a little research I found this is an issue some people have with lions mane as it can affect free testosterone. Sucks because I really liked it otherwise.

  • proteinlover69 - 10th Feb 2021

    Highly potent

    You can feel the mood boosting effects of it within a day.

  • Tre - 5th Jan 2021

    Does what it says

    It worked for me but I avoid using because of potential testosterone problems

  • Heather - 27th Dec 2020

    Lions Mane

    This is by far the best brand out there. I don’t have to take as much of this as I would other brands because of its 8:1 ratio. Product has helped my brain dog quit a bit.

  • Ben - 3rd Dec 2020

    Lions mane

    Excellent product , would highly recommend

  • David Martinez - 28th Sep 2020

    Best lions mane on the market

    Pure quality Lions Mane . ND never disappoints :)

  • Greg Kell - 8th Jul 2020

    Lion's Mane

    Fantastic for mood, general cognition, and curiosity. This is the only brand of Lion's Mane that I actually notice a difference when taking.

  • William Hayes - 26th May 2020

    This is a nootropic staple

    Pairs well with noopept and dhea. Work amazing. Its an amazing staple. Nootropics depot has the best lions mane around. Every single product surpasses my expectations. Not a fan of racetams tho. I also like mixing lions mane, with raw cacao and magic mushrooms. Makes a great nootropic.

  • Goodmeds - 6th Mar 2020

    Powerful mood booster

    I've been taking this for about a month & I've noticed a difference in mood & memory, specifically mood. It gives me feelings of wellbeing & I feel positive when I take it & throughout the day. Thanks!

  • Matthew Amann - 7th Nov 2019

    My mind feels like it did 5 years ago

    LM doesn't have an over 'hit'. It takes multiple weeks for the benefits to become properly evident, but man oh man, are they ever worth the wait. Over the past several years I've noticed slipping in things like my typing speed & accuracy, as well as my verbal fluency (specifically my ability to speak without tripping over my own words). Lion's Mane changed that. I feel like my old self again. I can get 'in the zone' like I used to and let my thoughts just flow onto the keyboard without constantly having to stop due to mistypes. Will definitely be keeping a supply in my aresenal.

  • sarah - 30th Sep 2019


    i would say 4.5 stars. next time i would buy this in pill form. i make a little morning beverage with cacao and honey but the mushroom doesn't mix in well. i've noticed some of the cognitive benefits, so that's great, but am also doing other things so who's to say. less brain fog and significantly better focus compared to usual. happy with my purchase.

  • LHB - 22nd Jun 2019

    One of My Absolute Favorite Supplements.

    I was very skeptical of the concept of medicinal mushrooms but I thought that since I have tried just about every other Nootropic I might as well try to keep an open mind and give these a shot. I wasn't expecting much, and I got far more than I bargained for in this extract. I appreciate the clarity of cognition that this brought on almost immediately but what was most noticeable to me was the very profound sense of well being that just 500 mgs. of this brings on. I am also doing amino acid therapy in an attempt to heal after a last desperate battle with end stage chronic alcoholism, and yesterday when I took this along with 500 mgs. of L Phenylalinine and about 200 mgs. of Pakistani Shilajit resin I literally felt the best that I have in about 30 years. I met a friend last night who picked me up from the hospital when I was released at the beginning of March, 2019 and she remarked that she could not believe the change for the better that has come over me in the last two weeks in terms of appearance and demeanor. I am fully convinced that ND's Cordecyps, Reishi and Lion's Mane ethanol extracts played a significant part in my recovery. If they can help me, they can help anybody. I stocked up on about a 6 month supply.

  • Danielle - 27th May 2019


    I don't normally leave reviews, but this product deserves one. I've taken lion's mane before with great results, but the 8:1 extract brings it to a whole other level. I mix this in my morning coffee and an hour later I feel mentally on point. It has helped me communicate better, produce better results at work, and my retention for information has increased tremendously. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for these results. I stack this with the oxiracetam and alpha gpc and my productivity has gone through the roof.

  • Justin Moreau - 9th May 2019

    What am I doing wrong?

    Insane clumping, no matter what I do. Doesnt mix with anything, 80% of the product is lost, stuck at the bottom. I will stick to capsules I guess? ND Admin: That can happen when it is exposed to moisture, or in a very humid environment. Panax ginseng root is similar. They are very hygroscopic.

  • Michael Mindlin - 5th May 2019

    Wasn't expecting much, and got some great results.. Now I am back for more!

    I am not quite sure what results I expected to see from taking Lion's Mane initially to be quite honest. I just know that I had a couple friends taking a Lion's Mane supplement and recommended it. Also, I had read some promising things about LM on various websites myself, so I gave it a try. I don't think I notice much after taking it daily for the first week or so, but then after about 2 full weeks of taking LM regularly I had this 'Ah Ha' moment. I suddenly realized that my mind overall seemed clearer, sharper, and I was able to recall things better/faster than usual. I have continued taking LM regularly since that 'Ah Ha' moment, and my results remain the same. In fact, I am back to reorder! I am going to switch to capsules for the reorder though. While the loose powder is doable, it doesn't taste great, and it also doesn't dissolve easily in water... so it becomes more of a process that I'd like to take it with the powder.

    I am reviewing after only taking 500mg a day for 2 weeks. I see that the recommended dosage is 1000mg daily, I will readjust and report back if possible. So far I have noticed better absorbtion of information from class lectures. No effect on motivation at this dose. The first few days I was experiencing a tingling throughout my body. The last few days I have been hit hard with allergies; I suspect this supplement has brought on an underlying immune response Ive been supressing with OTC meds (swollen lymph nodes, fatigue). Going to take a break for a week before taking the recommended dose to see if the Lions Mane is indeed affecting these "allergies" /flare-up. I am also aware Lions Mane increases histamine because of its increase on NGF. I often read about Lions Mane affecting sex drive. This extract has not had an impact on mine. I am female. I bought 30gs powder. Capsuled myself. Took 2 days to ship. Product is good. Your milage may vary.
