Lion’s Mane History

Lion’s Mane is a choice edible that grows wild on deciduous trees and is now extensively cultivated on sawdust substrates. Hericium erinaceus is an immunomodulator that is useful for many conditions where immunity is compromised. It has also been traditionally used for stomach ailments. Current research suggests that Hericium erinaceus may help mitigate age related cognitive decline.

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.
