Mushroom Extracts from Pure Mushrooms
The organic mushroom supplements of Pure Mushrooms are slightly different from other mushroom capsules. You can think of them as a tincture in a capsule. This is because the production process is designed to get the most out of the mushroom. Only the best mushrooms are selected by hand for the manufacture of these capsules.
After being organically cultivated, the mushrooms are immediately dried naturally. Normally, the dried mushrooms are then powdered and encapsulated, but not at Pure Mushrooms. The farmers know that the real power of the mushrooms only comes out when the rock-hard chitin in mushrooms is broken down. Chitin is the hardest substance produced by living things. The skeleton of an insect is made of chitin, but also the skin of mushroom spores. We cannot digest this stuff without it. Therefore, it must first be softened.
The dried powder of this mushroom is simmered in hot water for 5 to 7 hours to achieve this. The chitin and hard proteins then break down, releasing the valuable polysaccharides. The extract is then dried and extensively tested after being transported to Europe.
The Highest Quality
Pure Mushrooms tests for colour, taste and smell of the extracts. But that is not all. You don't just get an organic certificate. The materials and the soil on which the mushrooms are grown are certified. First of all, various characteristics of the mushrooms are checked. Think, for example, of how resilient the mushrooms are. There is also a strict check for foreign components, such as plastic, stones or metals. Then the quality of the mushroom extracts is measured. For each mushroom, a profile is drawn up to which the extract must comply. Chromatography is used to measure whether the extract indeed meets this profile.
Habitat and effect of the Lion's Mane Mushroom
The bearded tooth mushroom, another name for Lion’s Mane Mushroom, is a sturdy and bizarre-looking mushroom you could simply stumble upon in the forest. The fungus grows on trees and has long, hair-like threads so it resembles the mane of a lion. In Japan, this giant is also called the mountain priest mushroom, because the cream-colored mushroom is thought to offer divine wisdom.
The Lion's Mane is recognized in traditional Eastern medicine for its positive effects on the mind. Lion's Mane contains nonlinear polysaccharides and active ingredients that would enhance concentration and memory.
Ingredients and Dosage
100% organic Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus). A dose of two capsules per day contains:
- 640 mg full-spectrum Lion’s Mane extract full of beta-glucans, polysaccharides, hericenones and erinacins.
- 40 mg concentrated acerola extract (source of vitamin C and antioxidants).
The capsules are made of vegetable cellulose. That also makes this supplement vegan.
Take them with a glass of water and maintain a dosage of 1 to 3 capsules a day.With Lion's Mane, the following applies: continue to take Lion's Mane daily in order to continue to enjoy the benefits.
Tip: go outside each day for around an hour to get a dose of sunlight. The vitamin D which you’ll make combines very well with this mushroom.
Microdosing Paul Stamets Protocol
If you are going to microdose magic truffles or shrooms for a daily dose of creativity without hallucinating, we recommend you combine psilocybin with Lion's Mane. Keep the following dosage in mind for the microdosing protocol of famous mycologist Paul Stamets:
- 1 grams of fresh magic truffles (see recommended products)
- 2 capsules Pure Mushrooms Lion's Mane
- 100 mg vitamin B3 (niacin)
Take this super combination every day for 4 days. Then stop for 3 days and start again. Maintain this 4-for-3 schedule for up to one month. Then rest for two to four weeks (do not dose) before starting again.
