Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus)

Lion's Mane

Neuroprotective adaptogen used for mental clarity

Also known as Sheep’s Head, Bear Head, Pom-Pom Blanc, Lion’s Mane is an ancient Chinese medicinal and culinary mushroom. These shaggy edible mushrooms are valued for neurotrophic and neuroprotective properties that are seen to support brain and nerve health.* The famed mycologist Paul Stamets calls them perhaps the world’s first “smart mushrooms.

Lion’s Mane mushrooms are also notable for their polysaccharide components, which help support the immune system. They also are used for heart health, and a general health tonic in many traditional cultures.
