The COVID-pandemic has a significant effect on most global logistic systems. Because of that, we can only ship to a limited number of non-EU countries right now.
US and Canada: although we have resumed shipping to these countries [starting Nov. 6th 2021] it's still best to place your orders with our California-based US partner - much faster shipping ! [ link ].
Bulk orders are only available on this website, though.
Australia / Asia / Ocenania - you can only place your orders with our Australian partner. [ link ]
For the time being we are only offering registered shipping with tracking, and for a few countries we also offer FedEx. So, no free shipping right now. You can see whether or not your region is included when checking out.
Transit times are unpredictable but in general longer than usual. We have no control over this, sorry.

The Oriveda Team
Lion’s Mane contains over 70 bioactive ingredients and can be considered one of the most interesting mushrooms for gaining and maintaining good health. Very few mushrooms cover such a wide spectrum of therapeutic potential.
Science has been researching Lion's Mane mushrooms for several decades now, but barely scratched the surface so far.

Oriveda's L+ has been upgraded in May 2020. It is currently a combination of two separate supplements that reinforce and complement each other, and which can be mixed, dosed and balanced against each other according to your own liking.
Oriveda's lossless 1:1 hot water extract contains the full Lion's Mane fruiting body in a bioavailable form. Nothing was filtered out, both soluble and insoluble bioactives are still present in their natural synergy. In this case 'lossless' is crucial because we want the product to be 100% in line with the existing clinical research.
Three out of the five existing human case studies were done with non-extracted dried Lion's Mane fruiting body powder; by extracting this dried powder (like we did) the bioavailability / therapeutic effect increases ± 4 - 10 times according to research, and the required dosage drops from ± 2 - 3 grams daily to ± 600 - 900 mg daily.
Concentrated water extracts are not in line with LM research because all non-soluble matter was filtered out, including the NGF-inducing terpenes, sterols and other interesting bioactive compounds.
The clinical studies noticed significant effects on cognition, moderate depression and anxiety. Usually hericenones are pointed out as being responsible for the NGF-inducing effects of the fruiting body. However, there is also research explicitly stating that hericenones have zero effect on cognition / NGF-induction.
So it is possible there might be other yet unknown bioactive compounds or synergetic combinations of compounds responsible for the observed effects. It therefore makes sense to use an unfiltered 1:1 full-spectrum extract in this case; all fruiting body compounds are present in a bioavailable form.
Oriveda 's pharmaceutical grade mycelium extract is the worlds first and only alcohol extract based on pure liquid-grown mycelium. The emphasis is on the alcohol-soluble terpenes / terpenoids; i.p. a group of diterpenes known as erinacines. The two most recent clinical trials (2019/2020) were done using pure mycelium.
Erinacines are seen as the most powerful NGF-inducers in Lion's Mane. They are only found in the mycelium. We have used a custom composition (a nutrients formula) for the liquid substrate in which the mycelium is growing; its purpose is to increase the production of erinacines, i.p. erinacine A. See our supplement facts label for the results.
