Lion's Mane Folklore

A food staple for 100's of years in Japanese and Chinese culture, the Lion's Mane mushroom benefits were legendary. Historically reserved only for royalty, its tender white flesh tastes similar to seafood and compliments many different types of cuisine. In North America, native Indian tribes used it as an antihemorrhagic agent to stop bleeding, applying it to the wound in dried and pulverized form.

For The Brain And Nervous System

Also known as the 'Smart Mushroom', Lion's Mane has garnered an excellent reputation for brain and neurological health. Lion's Mane is fairly unique in its ability to increase activity of the Nerve Growth Factor (NGF)[1], a natural compound that supports nerve repair and regeneration. It has thus demonstrated great potential to activate peripheral nerve regeneration in cases of damage or tauma.[2] Lion's Mane also offers enhanced cognitive function and mood,[3] and is often used to promote mental clarity, focus, and memory. In a clinical study conducted in Japan, Lion's Mane shined for its ability to improve cognitive function in a group of elderly Japanese that had been diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment.[4]
