The Mynd Method

We have developed a cultivation technique that allows us to harvest pure mycelia. Combining the mycelia and mushroom fruiting bodies results in an extract rich in bioactive compounds. Our heat extraction process ensures bioavailability and retains a wide spectrum of beneficial compounds.

Independent tests indicate that our New Zealand Lion’s Mane (Pekepeke-Kiore) mushroom extract is the first of its kind to contain both Erinacines & Hericenones.

Nature’s intelligence meets science

Our 2024 research programme is in development with neuroscientists at leading universities. We aim to further quantify the neurological benefits of our New Zealand Lion’s Mane.

Studies will be published upon completion.

100% Pure mushrooms

Our New Zealand Lion’s Mane supplement is 100% Pekepeke-Kiore mushroom extract, straight from our farm in Raglan.

Thanks to our unique cultivation technique, the Mynd Method, our mushroom extract contains both Erinacines & Hericenones. The same two dynamic bioactive compounds that are responsible for its cousin’s, Lion's Mane (Herecium Erinaceous), brain function and health benefits. Previous production methods and studies of Pekepeke-Kiore have been unable to identify the presence of Erinacines.

Erinacines & Hericenones

These two zesty bioactive compounds are responsible for the key neurological benefits accredited to the popular Lion’s Mane (Hericium Erinaceus).

Brain health

Research suggests that these bioactive compounds stimulate the production of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), a protein crucial for the growth and repair of nerve cells.

Brain function

Studies indicate that Erinacines and Hericenones can improve cognitive function, memory, focus and learning.

Brain protection

Additionally, these compounds’ neuroprotective properties help safeguard nerve cells from damage and degeneration.

Tested & impactful

Our research partners at Callaghan Innovation independently tested our New Zealand Lion’s Mane mushroom extract. The results indicate that our sample contained Erinacines A, G, (B) & Hericenones A, J.
