The Nutritional Powerhouse
Lion’s Mane Mushroom is a nutritional powerhouse packed with vitamins and essential minerals including: thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin, which are essential for overall health. Additionally, Lion’s Mane is a good source of essential minerals like manganese, zinc, and potassium, all of which play crucial roles in various bodily functions.
Understanding Lion’s Mane Extract vs. Powder
When it comes to Lion’s Mane mushroom products, it’s essential to distinguish between Lion’s Mane extract and mushroom powder. Lion’s Mane extract is derived through a meticulous CO2 extraction process, preserving the mushroom’s potent phytonutrients. This extract is then freeze-dried to retain its nutritional goodness. The resulting freeze-dried material is ground and sifted into a nutraceutical-grade product, which forms the basis of premium products like Franny’s Farmacy Lion’s Mane Mushroom Extract Capsules.
On the other hand, products labeled as “mushroom powder” typically consist of the leftover material after the extraction process. While they may retain some natural nutrients, they are generally less potent in high-value compounds.
