Lion’s Mane is a choice edible that grows wild on deciduous trees and is now extensively cultivated on sawdust substrates.

Hericium is an immunomodulator that is useful for many conditions where immunity is compromised. It has also been used for gastritis. Current research suggests that Hericium may have some effect on nerve growth.
Proudly Made in China
In 1996, CEO and Founder of Nammex, Jeff Chilton organized organic mushroom production in China. That initiative paid off and today all Nammex mushrooms are grown or wildcrafted deep in the mountains of China by our Certified Organic production partners. Learn more about our growers in China.
Not All Medicinal Mushrooms Products are Created Equal
US lab-grown Lion’s Mane is mycelium grown on grain. Analysis has shown that US Lion’s Mane mycelium on grain has low levels of beta-glucan and very high levels of starch. Nammex only uses 100% organic fruiting bodies which are rigorously tested and guaranteed for active compounds.
