About the Doseology Product Line
The Canadian product line includes five medicinal mushroom products for cognitive health benefits. Each product is formulated and positioned to compete in both the medicinal mushroom and nootropics markets, and each addresses different market needs, including mood, energy, recovery, sleep and focus.
Lion’s mane (Hericium erinaceus) is a popular nootropic (mind-enhancing) mushroom featured in three of the new products. A staple of eastern medicine and the subject of numerous recent studies, lion’s mane is thought to enhance creativity, sharpen thought clarity, improve mental focus, and support healthy brain functioning.
Lion’s mane has immunomodulating properties which help maintain the immune system. Studies suggest that lion’s mane may induce nerve growth factor (NGF) synthesis in nerve cells, and can be effective in improving mild cognitive impairment.
Test marketing was conducted during Q2 and Q3 of 2021 in the U.S. market using direct ecommerce and Amazon.com, concluding with positive consumer feedback.
The five medicinal mushroom products in the Canadian line are:
- Elevate: Blend of lion’s mane mushroom fruiting bodies, ginger root, and vitamin B3 to elevate mood and enhance cognitive clarity (tincture, 28 servings).
- Wake: Blend of lion’s mane mushroom fruiting bodies, yerba mate, and vitamins B6 and B12 to promote wakefulness and to support cognitive performance (tincture, 28 servings).
- Boost: Blend of shiitake fruiting bodies and turmeric to provide the body with potent antioxidants to strengthen and support immunity (tincture, 28 servings).
- Sleep: Blend of reishi mushroom fruiting bodies, German chamomile, and melatonin to promote relaxation and sleep onset (tincture, 28 servings).
- Think: Blend of the fruiting bodies of lion’s mane mushroom, reishi, shiitake, and chaga, yerba mate, rhodiola, choline, organic cocoa powder, and monk fruit extract. The super-shroom cognitive complex is formulated to give the brain the building blocks it needs to optimize cognitive function and to improve focus and alertness (cognitive complex powder, 30 servings).
About Product Quality

About Adaptogenic Nutraceuticals
Adaptogens are used in herbal medicine to help people cope with physiological stress and return to homeostasis (biological balance). Significant research has shown positive effects of adaptogens with respect to stress reduction, resistance to mental fatigue, and improved attention capacity.
The Doseology line combines adaptogens such as ginger, turmeric, yerba mate, and several mushroom species, with proven functional mushrooms such as lion’s mane, reishi, shiitake, maitake, royal sun, turkey tail, and others. These blended formulations deliver enhanced health and wellness benefits over single-ingredient products, and have a higher market value because of increased user benefits and development challenges.
The Wake, Elevate, and Think products also include mushrooms with nootropic properties. Nootropics are supplements that improve cognitive function, such as attention, memory, creativity, or motivation.
About the Demand and Market Opportunity
The Doseology line is positioned as a high-quality supplement for the growing number of consumers who are concerned about maintaining mental and physical health, or seeking to elevate their cognitive function through biohacking.
Consumer interest in medicinal mushrooms for health benefits is rising, with the global market valued at US$3.56 billion in 2020 and predicted to grow with a CAGR of 7.23% to 2027 (HNY Research). Canadian interest in mushroom products is growing steadily, with a 250 percent increase in search interest for lion’s mane mushroom over the past five years (Google Trends).
The larger nootropics market continues to see strong growth, and is estimated to reach US$6.69 billion by the year 2028, at a CAGR of 12.7% (Marketysers Global Consulting).
