What is Hericium Erinaceus?

Hericium Erinaceus, also known as Lion’s Mane or bearded tooth mushroom, is a respected organism in traditional Chinese medicine. This unique mushroom, with its striking, fluffy appearance resembling a lion’s mane, has been valued in Asia for centuries for its potential health benefits. Hericium Erinaceus is considered a tonic for the mind in traditional medicine.

Traditional Chinese Medicine, one of the oldest medical systems in the world, emphasizes achieving harmony and balance within the body. Like Ayurvedic medicine, it aims for a holistic approach to health and well-being, focusing on the connection between mind, body, and spirit. Although Hericium Erinaceus has a long tradition within these medical practices, it is important to note that this does not automatically mean that its health benefits are recognized according to EU regulations.

Health claims, currently under review by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
  • Hericium Erinaceus enhances concentration.
  • Good for the memory.
  • Supports learning ability.
  • Beneficial for the brain.


Hericium Erinaceus contains unique components such as hericenones and erinacines. These natural substances have been studied for their interaction with biological processes, particularly in relation to supporting neuronal structure and function.

Lion’s Mane is valued for its intriguing components that may play a role in supporting neuronal health. These include neuropeptides that contribute to the development and maintenance of neurons and myelin, essential for neural communication within the brain. Myelin is important for the efficient transmission of signals along nerve fibers.

While the research community is still investigating the exact mechanisms and benefits, Lion’s Mane is appreciated by many for its interesting properties. It is important to note that the potential effects of Lion’s Mane, such as contributing to normal neuronal function and supporting cognitive processes, are being explored within the confines of ongoing scientific research.

Why buy Hericium Erinaceus from AvantVital?

Highly standardized to ≥30% Polysaccharides

AvantVital’s Hericium Erinaceus supplement stands out from other similar products due to its high quality and potency. Each capsule contains 500 mg of Hericium Erinaceus extract with a high concentration of 30% Polysaccharides, an important active ingredient of the mushroom. Moreover, we offer this supplement in two convenient packages: one with 60 capsules and one with 180 capsules, both packed in a practical stand-up pouch.

Suitable for vegetarians & free from unhealthy additives

Hericium Erinaceus from AvantVital is encapsulated in vegan HPMC capsules. HPMC stands for hydroxypropyl methylcellulose and is made from cellulose. The substance is derived from wood. Cellulose is actually an indigestible plant fiber and is recognized as such by our body. HPMC is similar to cellulose but is much more soluble and is considered safe for human consumption.

In Hericium Erinaceus from AvantVital, only a minimal amount of gluten-free organic rice flour and magnesium stearate are used, respectively, as a filler and anti-caking agent, to ensure a consistent dosage of Hericium Erinaceus in each capsule.

Usage & Ingredients

Although the optimal dosage of Hericium Erinaceus may vary depending on individual needs and the advice of a health professional, it is generally used in dosages of 500 mg to 1500 mg per day. Since our capsules each contain 500 mg of Hericium Erinaceus extract, we recommend taking one to three capsules per day, depending on the recommended dosage and your personal preferences.

Hericium Erinaceus can be taken with or without food. However, some people find it more comfortable to take it with a meal to prevent any stomach discomfort. Listen to your body and adjust intake based on what works best for you.

Regarding timing, it is flexible; some prefer taking it in the morning, while others take it in the afternoon, depending on their personal schedule and how they respond to the supplement.

Lion’s Mane can be used continuously, but it can also be beneficial to take a break after several months of consistent use. This can help to maximize the effectiveness of the supplement and give

your body a chance to rest.

Consult a health professional before starting to take Hericium Erinaceus if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, taking medications, or if you have a medical condition. This is to exclude any negative interactions with medications or health conditions.

Pay attention to how your body reacts to the supplement. While side effects are rare, if you experience any adverse reactions, stop using the supplement and consult a health professional.

Store the supplement in a cool, dry place and out of reach of children to maintain quality and prevent accidental use.

Side Effects

Hericium Erinaceus, also known as Lion’s Mane, is generally considered safe when taken in recommended amounts. However, like all supplements, some people may experience mild side effects. The most commonly reported mild side effects from using Hericium Erinaceus are:

Stomach or intestinal discomfort

Some users report mild digestive issues such as bloating, diarrhea, or stomach cramps.

Skin rash

There are occasional reports of people developing a skin rash after taking Lion’s Mane supplements.

Allergic reactions

Although rare, some people may be allergic to Hericium Erinaceus, which can lead to symptoms such as itching, rash, or breathing problems.

While these side effects are generally mild and not experienced by everyone, it is important to stop intake and consult a health professional if you experience serious side effects. Also, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, taking medications, or have a medical condition, it is advisable to consult with a doctor before starting any new supplement, including Hericium Erinaceus.


There is limited specific information about interactions between Hericium Erinaceus (Lion’s Mane) and medications, primarily because not enough large-scale clinical studies have been conducted to document all possible interactions. In general, it is recommended that individuals taking medication speak with a health professional before starting new supplements, including Hericium Erinaceus.

This advice is particularly important for people taking medications that affect blood sugar levels, blood thinners, or medications that affect the immune system, given the potential properties of Lion’s Mane that could theoretically interact with these drugs. For example, if Hericium Erinaceus affects blood sugar levels or blood clotting, it could cause issues for people taking diabetes medication or anticoagulants.

Therefore, if you are on medication, it is essential to discuss this with your doctor or a qualified health professional to ensure safe and appropriate use of Hericium Erinaceus in your specific situation. This is the best way to prevent any negative interactions with medications.
