Dual-Extracted Lion’s Mane Mushroom (1,500 mg)
Four Sigmatic's pure, wood-grown, lion’s mane mushroom extract is made by dual-extracting the fruiting body of the fungi. The result is 1,500 mg of lion’s mane mushroom extract that's, non-GMO, and free from fillers and carriers.
As visually impressive as it is beneficial, the brain-supporting benefits of the beautiful lion’s mane mushroom have been studied for centuries. With both short-term and long-term benefits, this dual-extracted lion’s mane extract not only supports memory and concentration, but also supports cognitive function and the nervous system.
This Lion’s Mane extract contains at least 30% polysaccharides (more than 15% beta-glucans). To make sure you are able to get the most out of this hard-to-digest mushroom, it has been dual-extracted. This means that all of the active water- and fat-soluble components have been made bio-available with boiling water and alcohol, respectively. After removing the alcohol and concentrating the extract, it is spray-dried back to powder.
Only the fruiting bodies of Lion’s Mane are used, and they are grown on real wood … exactly as they would in the wild. This ensures proper nutrition for the mushrooms to become as effective as possible. The mycelium (or the “roots” of the mushroom) are not used, but allowed to concentrate all of their power into the actual mushrooms before being taken through the state-of-the-art, dual-extraction process.
Nerve Growth Factors - NGFs
The active ingredients in Lion’s Mane, hericenones and erinacines, are shown to stimulate NGF production in the body. These two families of cyathane derivatives are small enough to pass through the blood-brain barrier and they can also increase myelination, which ensures the clear transmission of information across synapses.
Rose Hips (300 mg)
Included with mushrooms to increase the absorption of the mushrooms, Rose hips are a beautiful, deep-red Vitamin C bomb. Each elixir has 15 mg of vitamin C per serving (25% RDI).
Rhodiola (200 mg)
Often called the “Golden Root”, rhodiola root is a super adaptogen, known for its support of concentration and memory. The rhodiola roots used are wild-harvested from the mountains of Tibet and then dual-extracted.
Delicious field mint leaf is in the combo for a nice touch to the taste and for its soothing effects on the stomach.
A pinch of stevia leaf extract is added for calorie-free sweetness to round out the bitterness of the lion's mane. This mix is composed of less than 1% stevia because the stevia is a high-quality concentrated extract without any metallic aftertaste.
