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).

Hericium erinaceus 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!

    Not bad

    For me immediate effects is just it increases imagination/visualization capability, like whatever i think of its rendering quickly in my imagination, somehow, but it is very observable for me, also somewhat positive thinking/motivation. Idk if it increase memory, i think mine is ok, especially i supp with ginko somewhat regularly so not too observable. Still hoping by regularly taking it will give more observable benefits

    Outstanding quality.

    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.

  • Juan Serrano - 3rd Jul 2021

    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.
