Both the erinacines produced by Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) mycelium and the hericenones isolated from the fruiting body have been shown to promote the generation of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF). MycoNutri Lion's Mane contains H. erinaceus mycelial biomass and H. erinaceus fruiting body.
The mycelial biomass used is grown in the USA on sterile grain-based substrate in an FDA regulated facility. The biomass contains the full spectrum of active metabolites from the mycelium and young fruiting body of the mushroom, including beta-glucans, other intra- and extra-cellular polysaccharides, phytosterols (including ergosterol – provitamin D2), proteoglycans and diterpenoid cyathane derivatives (especially erinacines).
MycoNutri products are manufactured in the U.K. to EC food standards. The mushroom biomass used is grown in the USA on sterile grain-based substrate and is optimized to maximise substrate conversion and hence mycelial production.
All MycoNutri products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans (capsules are of plant origin). No additives are used and the products are dairy, gluten, maize and soya-free.
