CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PRODUCT
Hericium – also known as Lion’s Mane or Old Man’s Beard – is the medicinal mushroom used in this product. Hericium is characterized by active constituents such as diterpenoids, steroids, polysaccharides together with other functional and prebiotic ingredients like rhamnose and mannose.
In Gastroeikes capsules Hericium is associated with deglycyrrhizinated licorice which has scar healing properties thanks to its flavonoids; the absence of glycyrrhizin acid limits the undesirable effects on blood pressure.
