CCOF Organic Lion's Mane
One of the medicinal mushroom powerhouses, Lions Mane looks way too cute to be as healthy as it is. Many people mistake it for cauliflower, as it grows in fuzzy, fractal white puff balls. They almost look like they could scurry away as they grow. But don’t be fooled. Lion’s mane mushrooms contain bioactive substances that have beneficial effects on the body, especially the brain, heart and gut. Research is being conducted into their possible effectiveness against dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, neurological disorders, and even depression and anxiety.
Far West Fungi creates this line of dried mushrooms by air-drying a select portion of its fresh organic and wild foraged mushrooms. All drying is done in-house at our own commercial kitchen, where great care is taken to preserve the natural essence of the mushroom. The result is a powerful, concentrated mushroom product, free from sodium, preservatives, or any other additive. It’s simple and pure: mushroom essence and nothing else.
Instructions for Brewing:
¼ Cup of dried lions mane
8 - 12 cups of water
Stir into a crockpot or medium sized sauce pot. In crock pot, simmer on low setting for at least 2 hours, or ideally overnight, adding more water as needed. In sauce pot, simmer on low heat on a back burner of the stove for a minimum of 2 hours. For best results, cook up to 4 hours. Strain out mushroom solids and discard (or may be used to reinfuse once more for weaker results), then store tea in glass jar(s) in refrigerator up to 1 week. Can be frozen up to 6 months. For best results, drink 1 chilled pint per day.
