Made from Australian-grown Lion’s Mane mushrooms
Your world is busy and stressful, with plenty of things fighting for your attention. Lion's Mane medicinal mushrooms (aka. The Cognitive Enhancer) can help you focus and calm your nervous system.
Lion’s Mane can help with:
- Mental well-being
- Stimulate brain cell regeneration
- Focus and memory
Not only that, they contain potassium, zinc, iron, and selenium, which can boost your wellbeing in lots of ways:
- Potassium is necessary for the normal functioning of all cells in the body
- Zinc can support your immune system
- Selenium is an essential selenoprotein — together with other enzymes and proteins, it may help protect cells from damage and infection
Made from Australian Lion’s Mane
Many people have never heard of Lion’s Mane mushrooms. They’re white and shaggy, resembling a lion’s mane as they grow. Many mushroom sellers import from China, but at Touchwood Mushrooms, we grow our own.
That means we create the exact growing conditions needed to produce the most robust Lion’s Mane mushrooms on the market.
Lion’s Mane mushrooms contain a powerful polysaccharide called beta-glucan. It can support your immune system and it has a powerful antioxidant.
Not only that, beta-glucan belongs to the group of prebiotics that may support good bacteria in the digestive system.

How to use
Frequently asked questions
Q. What is dual extraction?
The cell walls of a mushroom are made of a substance called chitin. It’s a polysaccharide that our bodies can’t actually digest, which is a problem that prevents you from accessing all of the mushroom’s beneficial compounds.
Dual extraction means that our mushrooms are processed twice. Hot water extraction releases some of the beneficial compounds, but some, like sterols and triterpenes, are still locked in. Because we want to make the most of every single ‘shroom, we follow up with an alcohol extraction. Dual extraction ensures that your body can digest as many of the mushroom’s beneficial compounds as possible.
Q. I’ve seen that other products contain mycelium. Why don’t yours?
It might surprise you to find out that most “medicinal mushroom” products on the market don’t come from actual mushrooms. In fact, most sellers have never grown a single mushroom. Instead, they grow mycelium, which is basically the roots of the mushroom.
Mycelium is grown on grain, like rice, millet, rye, or wheat. Many sellers grind up the mycelium along with the grain of, say, Shiitake, and sell it as a supplement. The truth is, what the customer ends up with is a product that contains few (if any) beneficial mushroom compounds. Instead, they’ve paid top dollar for a jar full of (mostly) starch.
Look for the words 100% fruit body to ensure you’re buying the good stuff!
Q. But why do other sellers insist that mycelium is the best bit of the mushroom?
Because it’s cheaper and quicker to grow, of course! The problem is, there isn’t hard evidence to show that mycelium is overly beneficial to humans. Graham (our founder and 40-year mycologist) has made the conscious choice to exclude mycelium from his products.
Mycelium is full of salt and carbs and offers no proven medicinal benefits
It’s impossible to separate the mycelium from its growing medium (often rice or grain) — including mycelium in medicinal mushrooms powders inevitably introduces fillers that definitely aren’t beneficial
Q. Where do you grow your mushrooms?
We grow our own mushrooms in Western Australia's most high-tech mushroom growing lab. But there are some that we can't grow ourselves because of our climate and conditions. In this case, we import mushrooms from certified organic growers. This means our customers get the best possible medicinal mushrooms.
So initially I ordered 2 jars of Lions Mane powder. Took it religiously on a daily basis until I ran out. Had a period of about a month without it. Boy did I notice a difference. First round, I noticed improved memory, no more brain fog, just felt a whole lot better in myself. Of course I've ordered more, because I was able to compare myself with and without the mushrooms. It works. Thankyou TouchWood Mushrooms
Loving touchwood mushrooms lions mane powder. It's easy to take, no strong flavour that blends well with any savoury dish. And best of all, I'm always buzzing and cheerful when I'm taking this stuff. Bless you touchwood team!
