A personal development and neuroscience enthusiast, David Longacre—the founder of Nature’s Rise—combined his passion for mental health and fitness to create holistic solutions to some of the most common health issues. He started the company to bring awareness to the magical world of beneficial mushrooms.
David Longacre has been researching beneficial mushrooms for over 4 years and starting a company that would allow people to take advantage of his knowledge seemed like the perfect fit. After using organic mushrooms for years and reaping their benefits, David thought it would be ideal to bring more awareness and help others benefit from mushroom products.
The story below is narrated by David Longacre who explains how he came up with the idea of Nature’s Rise:
“I have been an entrepreneur for more than 12 years. My inspiration for entrepreneurship came from my passion and understanding of the mind. What most people don’t know, however, is that I also have a deep passion for mental health, brain science, psychology, neurology, and cognitive sciences.
My journey into this field started 7+years ago when my passion for self-development helped shape who I am today as both an entrepreneur with a deep understanding of business strategy but also someone passionate about understanding human behavior through different lenses: cognitive sciences/neurology.
As a busy entrepreneur running two businesses, I started experiencing sleep and focus problems which started causing anxiety as well. To get back on track with my health while running both two businesses effectively I had to find solutions for these issues quickly before they got worse!
Combining fitness, meditation, and beneficial mushrooms worked wonders for me. The combo eliminated my anxiety, improved my sleep, and enhanced my performance.
Although I have known that mushrooms have medical benefits for decades, I waited too long before taking advantage of their nutritional and healing powers. I was listening to a holistic health professional on a podcast who recommended Lion’s mane to listeners dealing with issues like trouble sleeping and anxiety. After listening to the podcast, I immediately ordered Lion’s Mane online.
Within the next few weeks, my memory and outlook on life improved. As I began to heal my mind and body, it felt as if a weight had been lifted from me. My anxiety melted away with each passing day until all that remained was an exciting sense of purpose for what is ahead in this new chapter of life! I found myself operating at full potential after years of slacking off and underperforming in my two entrepreneurial ventures.
What surprised me the most is that when my memory cleared up—thanks to Lion’s Mane—I started recalling things that had disappeared from my memory years ago.
I have been taking Lion’s Mane mushroom since I experienced its full power. In the 4 years I have used lion’s mane mushroom, I have experienced maximum clarity in my life, managed to focus and expand my businesses, and accomplished goals I never thought would be possible.
Seeing how Lion’s Mane had impacted my life made me gain a lot of interest in other medicinal mushrooms. Over the years, I have explored a wide variety of other mushrooms—including, Chaga, Cordyceps, Reishi, and Turkey Tail.
Each of these mushrooms has had a positive impact on my life and overall health. I have been combining the mushrooms in my morning smoothie. The results of consuming the 5 mushrooms—Lion’s mane, Chaga, Reishi, Turkey Tail, and Cordyceps—have included better sleep, better memory, better focus, improved clarity, and much more.
Nowadays, I rarely enjoy my morning smoothie alone. When my wife realized the benefits I was enjoying thanks to these beneficial mushrooms, she started adding a teaspoon of each mushroom to her smoothie too. I even told my 65 year old Mom the powerful benefits of Lion’s Mane and it has been dramatically helping her memory and cognitive function.”
Dedicated to Quality
“I started Nature’s Rise for one simple reason: to control the quality of supplements and foods I use. The goal was to create my dream formulas and share these with the entire world. If it doesn't meet my high standards, then Nature's Rise does not produce it! Our products have to meet all my standards first—and I have extremely high standards when it comes to what I put in my mouth.”
