The Most Common Lion’s Mane Benefits*
While Mushroom Revival is now based in sunny Austin, Texas, we were founded in Massachusetts, where autumn brings spectacular views of the changing leaves. But, it also brings shorter, darker days that can make getting out of bed feel less appealing. (More on that when we share the recipe we promised you.) One of our favorite mushrooms in fall and winter is Lion’s Mane. That’s partly because Lion’s Mane benefits include support for your brain (but you need your brain year-round!).* We especially love our Lion’s Mane tincture this time of year, since we add warming cinnamon. It’s such a nice seasonal flavor.
Fall is also a good time to find Lion’s Mane mushroom when you’re out hiking or foraging. You’ll have the best luck spotting these fluffy white mushrooms on trees at the start of fall. Now is the perfect time to learn about Lion’s Mane benefits — and how to spot them in the wild.* That way, when they’re ready to be harvested and the fruiting bodies start, well, fruiting, you’ll know what to look for!

Notice a trend? Hericium erinaceus has long been used around the world — mostly in North America, Europe, and Asia — to promote brain health.*
Our Favorite Fall Recipe to Highlight Lion’s Mane Benefits*
Now that you have a grasp on the most common Lion’s Mane benefits, it’s time for the fun part: The simple, tasty recipe that keeps us fueled all through the colder months. It’s a mushroom-infused version of the ubiquitous pumpkin spice latte. It gets us out of bed on cold mornings — and we look forward to every sweet, spicy sip. We hope you like it as much as we do.
|4 tablespoons pure pumpkin puree (not pie filling)||1 cup freshly brewed hot coffee|
|1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey||2 servings Mushroom Revival Lion’s Mane tincture|
|1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice||Whipped cream, for serving (optional)|
|1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or use vanilla-flavored milk)||Grated nutmeg or cinnamon, for serving (optional)|
|1 cup non-dairy milk (we like oat milk)|
In a small saucepan, add the pumpkin puree, sweetener, pie spice, vanilla, and milk. Whisk to combine, then place over medium heat. Once warmed, divide your coffee into two mugs. Top with the milk mixture, and add the Lion’s Mane tincture to each serving and stir. Drink immediately, garnished as desired.
