What is Lion's Mane?


Lion's Mane grows naturally on hardwood trees in temperate forests in the Northern Hemisphere, including North America, Europe and Asia. Lion's Mane is also called 'wig mushroom' in Dutch because of the long 'hairs' that hang down. For the English name, the comparison has been made with the mushroom's appearance resembling 'lion's mane'.


Lion's Mane powder


This Lion's Mane powder is made from the fruiting body, i.e. the mushroom. The tracks have not been used. The substrate (soil) of the Lion's Mane is a mix of wood sawdust, wheat bran, sugar and lime. This entire substrate is also organic. The substrate is of course not processed, so the powder itself is 100% organic Lion's Mane.




Lion's Mane is an adaptogen. Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that help the body. They are meant to return us to a level of homeostasis in the body. The herbs and roots have been used in China and Ayurveda for centuries. Nowadays they are also on the rise in the Western world.
