Lion’s Mane Mushrooms are large, white mushrooms with a shaggy appearance which, as the name suggests, resembles a lion’s mane. They tend to grow on fallen hardwood trees in forests across the Northern Hemisphere. Lion’s Mane mushrooms also go by the names of ‘Hericium Erinaceus’ (meaning hedgehog), ‘Yamabushitake’ and the ‘Mountain Priest Mushroom.’
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Lion’s Mane is used as a tonic for supporting general health and longevity. Buddhist Shaolin monks also commonly use Lion’s Mane mushroom powder as a tea, to enhance their brainpower and focus during meditation practices.
Lion’s Mane mushrooms are a rich source of carbohydrates, proteins and crude fibres. They also carry a plethora of nutrients, B and C vitamins, essential amino acids and minerals like zinc, copper and selenium. The fruiting body of Lion’s Mane contains polysaccharides and beta-glucans, which give the mushroom its medicinal qualities; supporting immune health and overall wellness.
Polysaccharides -Long complex chains of carbohydrate molecules that store energy, send cellular information and support the cells and tissue.
Beta Glucans -Sugars that are found within the cell walls of fungi. These are effective in reducing cholesterol levels and strengthening the immune system.
