Origins of lion’s mane mushroom
This mushroom with a weirdly distinct appearance was first discovered and used in China and Japan around 2000 years ago.
It’s famous for its long whitish spines that come out from the body, forming a shaggy looking clump that resembles a lion's mane.
Aside from its look, it’s also notorious for having so many nicknames. In China, it’s dubbed hou tou gu. In Japan, it’s named yamabushitake after the Yamabushi monks who used the mushroom for meditation. And in other parts of the world, it’s sometimes called hedgehog mushroom, pompom mushroom, monkey head mushroom, and so much more.
Health benefits of lion’s mane
Lion’s mane mushroom has as many health benefits as it has many nicknames. Below are only some of the recognized potential health benefits of this fantastic fungus:
1. May help boost cognitive health
Some of our cognitive abilities deteriorate as we age. It’s the natural way of life. As people reach their golden years, they’re more susceptible to memory loss and other cognitive diseases.
This is where the lion’s mane may be able to work its magic. This mushroom contains two very special compounds called the hericenones and erinacines.
These compounds can help stimulate the growth of brain cells, improving the mental functioning of elders.
2. May help improve gut health
Lion’s mane mushroom may benefit not just your brain, but also your stomach.
In a study conducted in 2015, the polysaccharide in lion’s mane mushroom extract was proven to be an active ingredient in protecting the stomach from gastric ulcers.
The component can help to prevent the growth of Helicobacter pylori in the digestive tracts. This bacteria is responsible for stomach and duodenal ulcers.
3. It may also help reduce inflammation
Inflammation and oxidative stress are some of the culprits of several illnesses that we suffer from. While these are natural responses of the body, they can still impact our health negatively.
