Before we begin on the proper dosage for lions mane, and lions mane extract we'd like to point out that Mycrodose uses a nanoemulsified blend of highly potent extracted lions mane fruiting bodies. This means that the potency of our product is not only higher because it is an extract, but it increase even higher due to that extract going through nano emulsification which essentially allows it to increase the bioavailability by upwards of 5x.
Standardized non-extract lions mane capsule dosages:
For a standardized non-extract lions mane dosage take between 500-1,000 mg daily of lions mane capsules. The goal here is to look for a 500 mg to 1 gram dosage daily.
As far as the non-extracted version of lions mane goes, you can actually go up to about 5 grams per day as long as you are keeping it under a certain amount of bioactive amines and polysaccharides. But keep in mind the other compounds in non-extracted form can cause risks at these high dosages.
For extracted lions mane concentrate dosage:
For an extracted lions mane dosage, you will want to take anywhere from 50-200 mg daily.
It is important to note that this dosage does not include the hot water extractions of lions mane. This only goes for water and alcohol extracts. While it's certainly possible to get some bioactive amines out of a hot water extraction, its pretty much impossible to get out antioxidants and polysaccarides in any sort of viable way from hot water extractions so we do not count this as a viable source of extractions for proper dosages.
Nano-emulsified Water-soluble Lions Mane Extract Dosage
This is by far the most potent and logical form of ingesting lions mane. The purpose of taking lions mane in this form is to take advantage of the super bioavailability and water solubility it possesses. Lions mane takes on the structure of a nanoemulsion where the particles are so small that they can be absorbed sublingually through the blood stream.
If you have ever taken a standard pill, you know how hard it is to take properly. With any pill, you have to make sure that it gets down your throat and chewed enough to dissolve. This is not an easy pill to swallow but with a nanoemulsified extract we have solved many issues in bio availability and absorption that would otherwise be problematic with standard pills or capsules.
With a nanoemulsified extract, you simply take one of our sublingual capsules and drop it under your tongue. Within a few minutes you can feel it dissolving and absorbing into your blood stream. Or conversely with our softgels you can take it like a standard easy-to-swallow pill and still reap the benefits of it's superior absorbtion rate with higher bioavailability through the standard route.
This allows the body to more readily absorb and utilize this extract of lion's mane to it's highest potential and them being produced in softgels takes a lot of the guesswork out of the dosage amount. For an easily digestible, bioavailable Nanoemulsified watersoluble lions mane extract dosage you should take up to 3 softgels daily.
Also keep in mind that the extract for our product is water based so not only is this a very potent product, but it is extremely easy for your body to digest and absorb into your system.
As a dietary supplement take 3 softgels daily.
One other key component that should be mentioned is that Lions Mane Extract works synergistically with the other compounds found within Mycrodose. Our product is a proprietary blend of water and lipid soluble compounds that has been shown in studies to increase the bioavailability and absorption of both lions mane as well as other phytonutrients found in the 50:1 (10,000mg active ingredient) Mycrodose formula. In short, you are getting so much more than just lions mane extract when you take bioactive Mycrodose.
You are getting the power of a multitude of organic compounds working together with lions mane extract and all of them working towards supporting your brain health in some way shape or form.
