Yes, that’s why I ordered some. Their not expensive, I only paid £13 for a months supply. It should be here in a couple of hours.

You can easily sprout your own at home. I just watched a YouTube video about it. It looks easy to do.

My broccoli sprouts just came.
I opened 2 capsules and added them to water. Major broccoli taste, yet very sweet. I guess broccoli sprouts have a sweetness to them. Like sweet broccoli. I’ll update in a couple of days. I took them about 10 minutes ago.

Do you really feel it like a dose of lion’s mane is felt?

No. There’s no mind altering stuff going on with broccoli sprouts. Lions mane didn’t really agree with me. Since taking the broccoli sprouts my anhedonia (lack of pleasure) has improved. I’m listening to music again. It could be coincidence.

I do feel like I have more motivation. I happily mowed my sisters lawn.

That’s good to hear, Green. I’m hoping that it does something to. If it could lower our med usage then that would be great. Where did you order it from? Im in Europe.

I bought mine off amazon.uk.

The brand is “silvertown health”.

It was about £13.
