Lion's Mane
(Hericium erinaceus)

Lion's Mane, or Hericium – the best mushroom for those who work and earn their living with their minds every day. The world's top scientists say that this mushroom restores brain cell function, and these mushrooms could be used for treating Alzheimer's disease. In particular, Paul Stamets and other leading scientists prove that the Lion's Mane restores brain cell functions and keeps neurons plastic. This mushroom helps young people to enhance their mental acuity and help elderly people restore brain functions and prevent sclerosis.

In turn, Oriental medicine claims that eating Lion's Mane promotes brain nutrition and healthy functioning of the nervous system.

Outwardly, hericium looks like a lion's mane, which is why it has that name. It has a sweetish taste with a light mushroom flavor. The mushroom is absolutely safe for the body and has no psychoactive effects, but at the same time actively helps neurons to work.
The composition of Lion's Mane contains substances that activate the synthesis of the NGF protein: gericenones, beta-D-glucans, cyanide derivatives, provitamin D, and erynacins. Moreover, substances such as arabitinol, D-threitol, and palmitic acid have an antioxidant effect.

Interesting fact: in the late 1990s, laboratories in Germany isolated the substance erynacin E, a compound that stimulates the growth of nerve cells, from Lion's Mane. Thus, the mushroom has great potential: scientists believe that in the future, it may help in treating many diseases of the central nervous system, which were previously considered incurable.
