Lions Mane Mushroom
Lions Mane Mushroom
Uniquely cultivated from selective strains verified through genetic analysis testing. Contains both mycelium and fruiting body constituents for maximum benefits. Grown in the USA.
Mushrooms are widely known for their many health supportive properties. Ascent Nutrition’s Lion’s Mane Mushroom is uniquely cultivated from specific strains that features a rich combination of both mycelium and fruiting bodies. Our lengthy and unique growing process ensures maximum active constituent production. Grown in the USA.

We humans share more of our DNA in common with mushrooms than we do with plants. The compounds that mushrooms create directly support human health in a multitude of ways.
Our Lion’s Mane Mushroom powder (Hercium erinaceus) is unique in that it occupies a specific middle ground in the debate that exists between the validity of mycelial based powders and fruiting body (mushroom) based powders.
In essence, the concern that exists with mycelial based powders is that an excessive amount of residual substrate (OG brown rice) is left in the final product due to an inefficient conversion of the base material into fungal biomass by the strain and species selected.
The compromised powder in question is left, giving the end consumer a low amount of active constituents, and a high amount of inactive starch powder.
This is a significant issue in the industry as a whole and is a valid concern to consumers.
Our cultivation techniques, strain selection, and commitment to quality ensure that each and every batch is grown to maximum colonization in our laboratories.
This ensures a majority of our organic base substrate is converted into fungal biomass by our superior strains with artful attention to the detail of growth.
Our darker colored powder is the result of this process and gives visual representation of the presence of active constituents.
Not all strains of a given species are created equal. Closely observing strain performance over time while taking many proprietary variables into consideration renders a product which contains markedly more active constituents than other leading brands.
An average producer will process colonized materials at a 4 - 6 week mark, which ensure a maximum finished powder weight and unfortunately also ensure a minimum of fungal biomass and active constituents.
Our process runs at least 10 weeks, and depending on the species, often runs as long as 12 - 16 weeks. This creates a rich and industry defining product that customers can rely upon and trust.
Our Lion's Mane powder, in particular, features a remarkable amount of fruiting body (at times in excess of 20% by volume).
This is uniquely possible in our cultivation procedures, due to our systematic vetting of wild harvested strains, and the length of time we allow our cultures to have access to fruiting conditions.
A dynamic mixture of mycelium and fruiting body is advantageous to health in general, but in the case of Lion's Mane, it is especially beneficial.
A significant body of research exists extolling the virtues of the active compounds contained in both the mycelium of Lion's Mane (Erinacines) and the active compounds contained in the fruiting body (Hericenones).
Brain Health Support
These incredibly unique compounds have the phenomenal ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and help to stimulate the normal production of proteins called Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and synaptophysin (SYP).
NGF, BDNF and SYP are neuropeptides that are responsible for promoting healthy neuronal communication, neuron structure and overall health of the brain and nervous system.
This means that Lion’s Mane mushroom is a strong ally in supporting healthy memory, focus, recall, clarity, attention and creativity.
Monks throughout the East have used Lion’s Mane abundantly to help aid focus, meditative practices, alertness and strength. In the East, Lion’s Mane mushroom is said to create “nerves of steel and the memory of a lion.”
Digestive and Immune Health
Lion’s mane mushroom may support digestive health thanks to its strong free radical scavenging effects throughout the intestinal lining of the gut. The mushroom can also support immune function and encourage the growth of good bacteria within the gut.
Ways To Consume
Due to the extensive growing and cultivation process we use, our powders are less “dry” than other mushroom powders available. The darker color of our powders result due to the extended growing process and the abundant presence of different active constituents.
Our powders go perfect in smoothies, juices, cereal and are especially delicious in yogurts. 2 grams per serving and 1-2 servings per
1 scoop is approximately 2000 mg (2 grams) Per 10 pounds of dogs and cats, suggested use is 500 mg (about 1/4th of a scoop)
For dogs and cats weighing less than 10 pounds, suggested use is 50 mg of mushroom powder per pound of body weight.
A dog weighing 30 pounds would be suggested at around 1500 mg or 3/4th of a scoop per serving per day.
Best mixed in with wet or fresh food. Suggested for pets to be used in combination with our Algae Oil DHA omega-3 oil, Organic Full Spectrum Hemp Oil and our Humic and Fulvic Acid.

I seem to have better mental clarity after taking Lions Mane for just a short time. I can remember where I placed my cars keys and other items. I stir it in my coffee every morning with Agarikon mushroom 🍄 it doesn’t change the taste . I recommend everyone who has brain fog to use Lions Mane mushroom. Thank You 😊 Ascent Nutrition

I just received this supplement and have it on subscription. I have used it in my coffee and it doesn’t change the flavor or leave me with an aftertaste. I know that can use this product in my yogurt and in any other way without changing the taste or texture of my food. Love the mini scoop, making measuring very easy.
