The Science Behind Using Lion’s Mane and CBD in our Brain Support Gummies

Crafting premium products for the holistic well-being of our customers is at the heart of what we do. So today, we are going to tell you all about a key ingredient that empowers Charlotte's Web™  Brain Support gummies: Organic Lion’s Mane.

Lion’s Mane is a mushroom that is unique because it’s been trusted in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. More recently it’s gained in popularity because of its health benefits that go beyond just being a dietary component.

Benefits of Lion’s Mane Mushroom

The power of Lion’s Mane lies in its composition, which consists of chemical compounds known as polysaccharides and terpenoids. Research studies point to these two components when explaining the health benefits of Lion’s Mane. They are considered to have neuroprotective and neuro-regenerative effects, meaning they help support the brain’s growth and repair. When translated into everyday benefits, they can aid in maintaining brain health and supporting cognitive functionality.

Backed by Science

The potency of our Brain Support gummies is calibrated carefully, ensuring Lion’s Mane’s full potential in each serving. Each 2-gummy serving contains 1200 mg of organic Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus). When examining the studies centered around the impact of Lion’s Mane on cognitive function and brain health, the dosage range fluctuated between 500 mg to 3,000 mg daily. Therefore, we decided on an amount of 1,200 mg per serving in our gummies, which can be taken safely twice a day to leverage the full benefits.

Why We Use the Fruiting Body of the Lion’s Mane Mushroom

We only use the fruiting body of Lion’s Mane mushroom due to its dense nutrient content. This part of the mushroom grows above ground and provides the most benefit. To cut costs, some supplement companies resort to using the ‘mycelium’ or the ‘roots’ of the mushroom. However, as mycelium is often grown on grains, the final supplement may contain more grain than mushroom, thereby diluting its effectiveness. So, for a truly beneficial mushroom supplement, the inclusion of the fruiting body is a strong sign of quality.

Formulated by Experts With CBD

The formulation of our products is a thoughtful process where we strive to combine ingredients that complement each other. So, in addition to lion’s mane, each serving contains 25 mg of CBD from organic broad-spectrum hemp extract. We coupled the Lion’s Mane with CBD because of its calming effects. Between managing everyday stresses and supporting brain functionality, incorporating Lion’s Mane with CBD makes for an effective combination.
