To honor the true spirit of craftsmanship and herbalism, Harmonic Mycology creates its liquid extracts the traditional way of slow extraction by first soaking locally-grown Lion’s Mane mushroom biomass in 43% alcohol for a minimum of four weeks. They then add pure mycelium biomass for the last few days of the ethanol extract. The mycelium is cultivated solely for these extracts. This is a very important step, because Erinacines, a group of compounds responsible for the most potent nerve growth factor stimulation has thus far only been found in the mycelium of H. erinaceus. The fruit body tincture is then combined for a full spectrum of active constituents. The Lion’s Mane is then separated from the ethanol and gently steeped in spring water for 4-8 hours. Finally, the tincture and hot-water extractions are filtered and combined to create a potent elixir of bio-available compounds with a total alcohol content of +- 30%.
