and this matcha:

The coffee is great -- Much better than their instant mixes, while the matcha is a little more on the "acquired taste" side (containing astragalus and ginger.) You get a full serving of dual-extracted lion's mane (Yamabushitake) per serving.
"Yamabushitake ethanolic extract appears to increase NGF mRNA levels, and this has been confirmed following oral administration to mice. An increase in NGF mRNA has been detected in the hippocampus. Seceretion of NGF from astrocytes has been noted to be increased. When looking at neurons specifically, yamabushitake appears to promote neuronal prolongation and formation of myelin. Neuronal excitability from glutamic acid appears to be attenuated in the presence of yamabushitake extracts. Yamabushitake appears to protect rats against cognitive decline caused by β-amyloid pigmentation. Anxiety and Depressive symptoms have also been reduced in humans fed 2g of Yamabushitake. There was a significant difference between groups on the measurements of concentration and irritability, favoring the Yamabushitake group. One human study using 3g of 98% Yamabushitake powder (in capsule form) showed significantly improvements on a rating scale of dementia in persons suffering from general cognitive decline. In one study conducted in rats, Yamabushitake water extract was able to promote neuronal regrowth after crushing injury. Rats that had a gluteal nerve damaged (purposefully) during surgery were able to walk better after ingestion of water containing the extract of the fruits. Yamabushitake appears to be a PPARα agonist, which may contribute to fat burning properties and reduce triglycerides. Yamabushitake has been noted to suppress LPS-induced macrophage activation"
The coffee also includes Chaga, written about on this Ben Greenfield article:

Apparently Chaga has an ORAC value of 52,000 -- among the highest scores... of all foods?
