The Details

New Chapter LifeShield Mind Force passed all quality reviews and recorded 525 mg of lion’s mane (hericium erinaceus) per serving.

As far as lion’s mane products go, we aren’t going to lie — it’s not our favorite lion’s mane supplement. We really like the fact that this brand adds in a couple of the other beneficial mushrooms such as reishi and chaga mushroom, but we wish it wouldn’t have so many ‘other’ ingredients in its formula. Sure, all the ingredients used are of high quality, organic even.

The other ingredients: Capsule (pullulan [Aureobasidium pullulans], carrageenan, water and potassium chloride) and organic brown rice are what set off our alarm. Specifically the carrageenan. Most of the top rated lion’s mane products we reviewed do not have this ingredient in their formula. Thus, this product received a penalty in its ingredients and quality scores.

If you can get past that, however, we think you’ll like this supplement. It’s not terribly price, and it’ll work for a majority of people looking to try out different brands. So if you’re a big fan of organic quality ingredients or products from New Chapter, we think you should try it out.

New Chapter LifeShield Mind Force is no doubt one of the more popular supplement brands out there. Besides the plant based capsules, this supplement contains several other of the beneficial mushrooms you may be interested in. On that of that they’re all organic active ingredients too.

There are a number of factors that affect the ingredient rating during our review. Seeing ingredients in a formula that other top ranked products don’t have is usually not a good sign for the supplement. The use of carrageenan and organic brown rice are usually ingredients most supplement takers hate seeing in their supplements. Thus, New Chapter LifeShield Mind Force takes a hit on its overall ingredient rating for using these types of ingredients.

A supplement with poor dosage and potency will not give you those benefits you’ve been reading about. New Chapter LifeShield Mind Force does an okay job with dosage, however, compared to more potent brands, it falls short.
