🍄 Comparing Lion's Mane 8:1 Vs. Lion's Mane 1:1
The Lion's Mane 8:1 is extracted with both ethanol and water, whereas the 1:1 Lion's Mane is simply hot water processed extract. Due to the fact that the 8:1 is extracted with both ethanol and water, the final extract contains more ethanol soluble compounds but at the expense of some of the immune regulating and general health-boosting water-soluble compounds such as the beta-glucans. That being said, it does require 8 kilograms of Lion’s Mane to produce just a single kilogram of the 8:1 extract, which means that the 8:1 extract does have a much higher concentration of bioactive compounds. Yet it does not necessarily mean it is 8 times more potent than the 1:1 Lion's Mane extract.
Overall, this means that the potency of the 8:1 Lion's Mane is increased above that of the Lion's Mane 1:1, but more importantly, the character of effects has changed the most. The 8:1 has a lot more cognition-enhancing effects than the regular Lion's Mane while losing out on some of its immune and general health effects.*
