What is Lion's Mane?
Lion's Mane (Hericium enrinaceus) is a species of fungus that grows in deciduous forests with old trees, mainly on the trunks of old oaks and beeches. Lion's Mane produces fruiting bodies with a characteristic fluffy appearance, resembling a lion's mane. Hence its common name, Lion's Mane.
The natural region of occurrence and cultivation and the place where this mushroom is rooted in culture and tradition is Asia. Thanks to its properties, Lion's Mane has been known and valued for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine and widely used by herbalists there.
Lion's Mane, like other medicinal mushrooms, is rich in polysaccharides - among them beta-glucans, which are particularly beneficial to health, as well as sterols and numerous minerals - including valuable trace elements.
Beta-glucans and polysaccharides
Polysaccharides are a large group of chemical compounds with long chain molecules made up of repeating sugar units. Due to their structure, polysaccharides can therefore be seen as biopolymers, occurring naturally in plant and animal organisms. Polysaccharides include starch, cellulose, glycogen or chitin. The individual polysaccharides exhibit different properties and thus also play different roles, depending on the way in which the monomeric sugar units are bound together and also on their type.
There is another subgroup of polysaccharides specific to fungi - beta-glucans. Beta-glucans are part of the cell walls of fungi and are one of the main structural elements of their fruiting bodies.
Beta-glucans are structurally different from other polysaccharides we know from everyday life, such as starch or cellulose. These structural differences have a direct impact on their properties - thanks to them, beta-glucans are a valuable ingredient of dietary fibre, for instance, and they also show other forms of biological activity, e.g. they influence the reduction of the level of "bad" LDL cholesterol.
What distinguishes our extract? / Double standardisation
When choosing dietary supplements, it is worth checking what the extract is standardised for. Although many products are based on highly standardized extracts, they usually only refer to the total polysaccharide content. There is no information on the content of beta-glucans, whereas beta-glucans are the most important polysaccharide fraction with health-promoting properties.
The information about the total polysaccharide content does not, therefore, determine the high quality of an extract, even if it is 40, 50 or more percent. The majority of these may be useless varieties of starch (i.e. so-called alpha-glucans), or the polysaccharide content may be artificially high due to the presence of maltodextrin, which is also a bio-neutral polysaccharide and is sometimes added as a carrier to stabilise the extract.
Aliness Lion's Mane 400 mg is based on a high quality, dual standardised extract of Hericium enrinaceus fruiting bodies, which guarantees a content of active ingredients of at least 40% of all naturally occurring polysaccharides and 20% of beta-glucans. The high beta-glucan content ensures the effectiveness and full spectrum of the extract.
Aliness Lion's Mane 400 mg does not contain any animal ingredients, making it a product suitable for vegans. The product does not contain any artificial technological additives, preservatives or colours.
Other ingredients Standardized extract of the fruiting bodies of Lion's Mane (Hericium erinaceus): including polysaccharides, beta-glucans; capsule shell: (binding agent: hydroxypropyl methylcellulose).
