What is Lion's Mane?
Lion's Mane, orHericium enrinaceus, is a species of fungus that occurs in deciduous forests with an old stand and grows mainly on the trunks of old oaks and beeches. The mallow produces fruiting bodies with a characteristic, fluffy appearance, reminiscent of a lion's mane. Hence it owes its common name - Lion's Mane.
Asia is a natural region of occurrence and cultivation as well as a place where this mushroom is rooted in culture and tradition. Thanks to its properties, lion's mane mushroom has been known and appreciated in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries and widely used by local herbalists.
It is particularly beneficial for health beta-glucans, as well as in sterols and numerous minerals - including valuable trace elements.
Beta-glucans and polysaccharides
Polysaccharides are a vast group of chemical compounds with long, chain molecules, composed of repeating sugar units. Due to their structure, polysaccharides can therefore be seen as biopolymers that occur naturally in plant and animal organisms. Polysaccharides include starch, cellulose, glycogen and chitin. Individual polysaccharides have different properties and thus also play different functions, depending on the way in which the monomeric sugar units are linked and also depending on their type.
There is another subgroup of polysaccharides that is characteristic of fungi - beta-glucans. Beta-glucans are part of the fungal cell walls, being one of the main structural elements of their fruiting bodies.
Beta-glucans are structurally different from other polysaccharides known to us from everyday life, such as starch and cellulose. These differences in structure have a direct impact on their properties - thanks to them, beta-glucans are, for example, a valuable component of dietary fiber, and also show other forms of biological activity - they affect, among others to lower the level of "bad" LDL cholesterol.
What distinguishes our extract? / Double standardization
When selecting dietary supplements, it is worth checking what the extract is standardized for. Although many products are based on extracts with high standardization, they usually only refer to the total polysaccharide content. However, there is no information about the content of beta-glucans, while they are the most important fraction of polysaccharides, which is characterized by health-promoting properties.
The mere information about the total content of polysaccharides does not prejudge the high quality of the extract, even when it is 40%, 50% or more percent. Most of them may be useless varieties of starch (i.e. alpha-glucans) or, additionally, the content of polysaccharides may be artificially increased due to the presence of maltodextrin, which is also biologically neutral polysaccharide and is sometimes added as a carrier stabilizing the extract.
Aliness Lion's Mane 400 mg is based on the high-quality, double-standardized extract from the fruiting bodies of Hericium enrinaceus, which guarantees the content of active ingredients at the level of at least 40% of all naturally occurring polysaccharides and 20% of beta-glucans. The high content of beta-glucans ensures the effectiveness and full spectrum of the extract's activity.
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 dyes.
