Lion's Mane Mushroom Overview

Lion's Mane Mushroom Lion's mane mushroom (Hericium erinaceus) is a type of edible mushroom that grows on the dead trunks of several species of hardwood tree and is native to North America, Europe, and Asia. It is named for its long, shaggy spines that resemble the mane of a lion. Lion's mane mushroom has been used as a dietary supplement for a number of purported health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants and may have anti-inflammatory properties, which may help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease. It is also believed to have neuroprotective effects and may help to improve cognitive function and memory, which is why it is often marketed as a 'nootropic'. In addition, lion's mane mushroom may have immune-boosting properties and may help to reduce the severity of colds and other infections.
