Did you know there is a food that supports brain health, and bonus, it just so happens to look like a brain?
Enter Lion's Mane mushrooms.

 

Lion's Mane mushroom is a natural nootropic that we use as a secret ingredient in our caffeine-free Lion’s Root Kombucha. Alright, alright, it is no secret, but this little guy is too good to keep all to ourselves. Let’s take a deeper dive into Lion’s Mane Mushrooms.

 
What is Lion’s Mane?

Lion’s Mane Mushroom is one of the most promising natural nootropics in the world. Wait. Pause. What are nootropics? Another good question.

Similar to adaptogens, nootropics (noo·traa·puhk) are a class of compounds that benefit the brain by improving cognitive performance, focus, and memory enhancement. Nootropics can also alleviate stress, balance mood, boost mental energy and increase focus, ultimately creating a calm and relaxed mind. (Ummm…yes please!)

Over the past decade, many manufacturers have begun harnessing consumers’ desire for more brainpower and are creating synthetic nootropics. We have never been crazy about synthetics and instead, prefer to use the beautiful bounty and hearty harvest provided by Mother Nature to create all-natural beverages, but more on that later.

Back to Lion’s Mane. This nootropic mushroom harkens back to traditional Chinese medicine and has been touted for its capacity to support concentration, focus, and memory. Throughout history, Lion’s Mane 
(Hericim erinaceus) has been celebrated for its potential to support concentration, healthy energy levels, and mood. It is basically a triple threat.
 
Where is Lion’s Mane Grown?

Lion’s Mane is primarily found throughout parts of
Canada and the Northern United States. White in color and covered in downward cascading spines, Lion’s Mane Mushrooms are edible and have been shown to have medicinal properties, making them a prime candidate for the medicinal mushroom market
as well as the world of wellness.

Benefits of Lion’s Mane Mushrooms

Lion’s Mane is most commonly known to increase cognition, enhance learning and memory while improving mental clarity, concentration and focus. That is what we had in mind when we created our Lion’s Mane beverage, Lion’s Root.

Caffeine-free, our Lion’s Root Kombucha is flavored with the refreshing and satisfying sweetness of pineapple and is grounded with fresh turmeric. Brewed sustainably for brilliance, Lion’s Root awakens focus and enlightens the senses for an elusive yet attainable balance of flavor and function. Consider it a brain tonic that is your go-to source for caffeine-free clarity.

Ridiculously delicious, Lion’s Mane Mushrooms support brain function while turmeric provides a boost of awesome antioxidants, and the flavor of pineapple ties the two together perfectly. The result? Kombucha that is both delectably delightful and seriously stimulating for the senses. (Oh yeah, it is safe to say we totally nailed it).

Get Rowdy with Lion’s Mane

Reaching clarity and a clear mind does not always require getting our zen on with meditation and a yoga mat. (Although it totally can, whatever works for you), but when it comes to finding our own inner clarity, we prefer to keep things rowdy with Lion’s Root.
Stay rowdy friends!
