Our Advantages

Why Are Lion’s Mane Mushroom So Good For The Cognitive?

Hericium erinaceus is abundant in vitamin B complex, deemed to protect against mental disorders. In particular, the VB12 in fresh Lion’s mane mushroom is 25% of the recommended intake, and 318% in powdered form. VB12 is popularly known as the “magic brain health element”.

Lion’s mane mushroom can be used as a dietary supplement or medicine. It is mainly used to treat mental decline, neurasthenia and autonomic decline, especially for Alzheimer’s disease.

The Planting Conditions of Our Lion’s Mane Mushroom

The first step is to select an appropriate medium. Cottonseed hulls became our ultimate choice. It’s more nutritious, retains water well, and is easily available. We store them in a 20°C environment.

The second step is to sterilize these substrates. Put them in an environment of about 100°C. After sterilization, block for 4-6 hours. When the temperature dropped to 30°C, we proceeded to the next step.

Combine the substrate with the strain. Our professors use the inoculation tool to quickly insert the strain into the matrix bag and seal it well. Then comes the most important step – training.

The growth of lion’s mane fungus has strict requirements on temperature and humidity. We controlled the temperature of the culture room at around 18°C. The humidity is controlled at around 85%-95%. We water 3-4 times a day as the lion’s mane fungus grows.

The air in our mushroom room is fresh, and the CO2 concentration in the mushroom room is less than 0.1%, which avoids the formation of deformed mushrooms. After 10-20 days of growth, we can enter the collection stage. We also have strict requirements on the final product, the fruit body needs to be full and firm.

What Kind of UV Method Do You Use?

We use PSA, PSA is phenol sulfuric acid, but phenol and sulfuric acid are two different liquids. We use sulfuric acid to hydrolyze the polysaccharide to glucose, then combine phenol and glucose into a colored product, and then use UV to detect the polysaccharide content.
