Legend is that those who consumed Lion's Mane would have the memory of a lion and the nerves of steel. This mushroom has traditionally been used in China and Japan as a medicinal mushroom as well as for culinary use. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, this species has been prescribed for stomach ailments and for prevention of cancer in the GI tract. Some believe it will improve mental acuity and slow the onset of symptoms associated with dementia. Recent research has identified antioxidant components and other constituents that may aid in the regulation of lipid levels and in the reduction of glucose levels. This research has also found Lion's Mane to contain erinacines - compounds that can stimulate neurons to re-grow.
Some of Lion's Mane medicinal mushroom's most promising (and surprising) benefits include possibly being able to stimulate the synthesis of nerve growth factor, which may help inhibit brain dysfunction associated with Alzheimer's disease and possible other neurological diseases. Studies also confirm many of lion's mane mushroom's traditional uses, supporting the digestive system, and acting as a tonic for the nervous system.
