FUNCTIONALITY: Enduring energy and balancing boosts as the extract helps to balance the effect of the caffeine. Adaptogens are not treatments or cures, but they are unique in their ability to enhance the body’s natural defense mechanisms against the stresses of daily life to support health. Adaptogens work in synergy with normal bodily processes without any serious side effects. Lion’s Mane also contribute to lower acidity. In addition, we do a natural after treatment of the roasted coffee beans increasing the pH of the coffee from around 5,0 (or even as low as 4,3 in normal coffee) to around 6,0.
LION’S MANE AS MEDICINAL MUSHROOM: is an edible fungus, which has a long history of usage in traditional Chinese medicine. This mushroom is rich in some physiologically important components, especially β-glucan polysaccharides, which are responsible for anti-cancer, immuno-modulating, hypolipidemic, antioxidant and neuro-protective activities of this mushroom. H. erinaceus has also been reported to have anti-microbial, anti-hypertensive, anti-diabetic, wound healing properties among other therapeutic potentials. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties and promotion of nerve growth factor gene expression and neurite (axon or dendrite) outgrowth, H. erinaceus mycelium shows great promise for the treatment of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
