More about Lion’s Mane:
Known in Latin as Hericium erinaceus, lion’s mane is native to North America, Europe and Asia, although it’s not cultivated widely in areas outside of Asia. It’s sometimes referred to as Hedgehog Mushroom, Yamabushitake or Houtou, and it belongs to the tooth fungus, or hydroid fungi group.
Lion’s mane mushrooms have long, dangling spines that are usually greater than a centimetre in length. Unlike most mushroom species, whose spines project from a branch, the spines of Hericium erinaceus projects outward, giving it that unique look of a lion’s mane. These mushrooms grow on both living and dead broadleaf.
Lion’s mane is known and valued for its neuroprotective capabilities. It promotes cognitive health by enhancing “neurite outgrowth,” which plays a critical role in neural growth while reducing inflammation. Lion’s mane is commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine to maintain Qi, a person’s vital energy, and improve issues affecting the central nervous system. It may be recommended to patients dealing with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, depression, anxiety, insomnia and cognitive impairment.
Adverse Reactions / Interactions:
Lion’s mane mushroom is a generally safe food item. Multiple studies have found it to be non-toxic at different dosages, even over extended periods of time.
There have been isolated reports of lion’s mane mushroom side effects such as contact dermatitis, respiratory distress.
If you choose to eat this mushroom and have any symptoms, such as burning/itching skin, inability to breathe properly and/or swollen lips, consult your doctor immediately.
