My Lions mane products are made of two separate classes: 1) wild foraged lions mane products, and 2) cultivated Lions Mane products. Many believe that wild foraged mushrooms contain nutrients and medicines which are not found in controlled cultivation. I offer both in tincture and dried format. Most people use Lions Mane products due to much research linking it to reducing early onset dementia. Other health benefits are reduction of depression and anxiety symptoms, and reparation of damaged nerves. This mushroom also has anti-inflammatory properties along with being rich in antioxidants.
We have been foraging the Blue Ridge Mountains for over 30 years, happy to share the wonders of nature with family and friends. A close friend suggested there may be countless others, worldwide, who would also love to partake of the diverse wild goods this area has to offer. Grandfather Medicinals is the platform I developed to share this unique goodness. I am continually awed by the volume and quality of the people I have met in this undertaking. My time is best spent in the woods, so I keep processing, labeling, packaging, etc. to a minimum. I am happy to talk fungus and plants whether any products are purchased or not. I keep finding that the people who are involved or interested in these things are kind, good people. We all need more of that in our lives! Thank you for stopping in.
