FAKE, FAKE, FAKE. Shame on you, VitaRaw.
This product is fake. I wish I could give negative stars. The capsule on the left is from the bottle I ordered a couple months ago. The capsule on the right is the bottle that just arrived. Shame on you , VitaRaw. Mushroom powder should not smell like cocoa powder when you open the bottle. Mushroom powder should not taste like salt, cocoa, and funky kitchen spices; it should tase like pure fresh mushrooms. Don't try to play it off as source variability. I've grown culinary mushrooms and there is never this much variability between flushes. I'm sending the bottle back to Amazon, but keeping one capsule so I can have one of my friends do some microscopy on it so I can figure out what you sent to me.Oh....and anyone who knows anything about plant medicine also would know that cocoa powder can give you a boost similar to mushroom powder, so, nice try.
Is this lions mane?
I am pretty familiar with the effects of lions mane and the dosages of high quality lions mane that can produce a given effect. I have been using lion's mane for awhile, but this is my first time using this specific product, which i bough because of how cheap it was.According to the ingredients label, the gel caps contain lions main, black pepper extract, and rice powder.This product feels different from other lions mane I have taken. I suspect there is not much lions mane in it and rice powder is being used as filler (the contents of the gel caps look a lot different from the way lions mane usually does). VitaRaw is using black pepper extract to increase the effect of the lions main, black pepper inhibits the breakdown of some compounds in the liver. The usage I am familiar with is combining black pepper with turmeric to increase blood levels of curcumin (20x times).The effects could definitely be described as nootropic. My cognition is enhanced, but the effects are decidedly different from pure lions mane, and there are some potential issues with using black pepper extract. I noticed in another review someone said they became dizzy after taking it. I had a similar experience after taking some capsules and drinking a kombucha, I *think* it was the result of the black pepper extract inhibiting the breakdown of something in the kombucha in by my liver.Lions mane works by making acetylcholine receptors in the brain more sensitive. The nicotine molecule is identical to acetylcholine (a class of Ach receptors are called nicotinergic receptors). The benefit of making the receptors more sensitive as opposed to taking nicotine is that your body can regulate your states better, the focus is more intense but you don't get "locked in" in the same way you can if you use nicotine gum or a patch. Hence the benefit of lions mane.I am concerned about the potential effects if someone took this product with nicotine. If the liver is inhibited from breaking nicotine down by the black pepper extract, and the lions mane is increasing nicotenergic receptor sensitivity (and likewise not being broken down by the liver) it could be VERY unpleasant, perhaps dangerous to someone with another preexisting condition.Also curious about the interactions of black pepper extract with prescribed pharmaceuticals people could be taking.I may be blowing it out of proportion, but I think some of the complaints in other reviews are the result of the black pepper extract. I get VitaRaw is going for the lowest priced lions mane, but they may want to be careful.------------All that being said, I will continue to use the rest of the lions main (+ black pepper extract) nootropic i bought from vita raw. I just won't treat it like pure lions mane--being careful about what i mix it with--and in the future I will buy a different product.
I Can Remember!
I've been taking Lions mane for some time now. I'm a recovered cancer patient, chemo saved my life but killed my memory, Lions mane mushrooms have given me that memory back. This brand is as good as any brand I have used, at a fair price point. I can tell by the smell that these are fresh, I will be buying this brand again in the future. Don't sit around the house like this big, fat cat reclining on my PJs, as I used to do, try natural healing to give you your life back.
There is something to this.....
I was skeptical of this or any of these brain supplement products at first. Nearing 60, I look at every claim with one eyebrow raised. But, there is something more to this product than just wishful thinking, hoping that it would work, and it did not take too long to start. At my age, there is a tendency to get a little forgetful, and I always have to write things down now since my job can be complicated with many tasks. But I noticed some things I would clearly have forgotten before taking the product, I now remember. Another example, when logging on to my bank account, the bank sends a text with an 8 digit code as an extra security measure. I find that I can glance at the number on my phone, and easily remember every number without looking back. Also, I notice that words come to mind a little easier, I'm not searching for them as much. So, this will be in my regiment for the rest of my life.
Less anxious, less triggered, happier mom
I bought these as an alternative option for my anxiety and daily energy to keep up with my four homeschool children, actually not expecting to notice a big difference and for the first few days I didn't , but after about a week I realized my reaction to the same stressors that would cause me to get really uupset or angry are easier to tolerate and deal with more level headed which is a big help for tired busy mom. I also looked up all the benefits of these mushrooms and it's great for brain health so I feel like it's a plus for my breastfeeding daughter .
Fraudulent! Just a bunch of cocoa powder!
Do not buy this crap! This claims to have Lions Mane but it’s obviously cocoa powder, I can smell and taste it! Misleading, mislabeled and fraudulent!
Extra Energy & Focus
This has been one of the best Nootropic supplements I have found for more energy. After just 2 days, I already noticed a different in my energy levels, and I was able to stay more focused on my school work. I would take one in the morning, and then one around the late afternoon to keep me going. I am going to have to reorder these very soon.
El primero efecto que note a las primeras 2 capsulas diarias fue en minutos capacidad de atencion mejorada, disminuyo la fatiga o pereza, el cerebro se sintio mas enfocado, aunque no te da mas capacidad para realizar destrezas , tampoco mejor memoria, ni destreza para resolver problemas, solo ayuda a cursar el diario sin estar tan fatigado.
