Mushrooms provide a vast array of potential medicinal compounds. Many mushrooms – such as portobello, oyster, reishi and maitake – are well-known for these properties, but the lion’s mane mushroom, in particular, has drawn the attention of researchers for its notable nerve-regenerative properties. – Paul Stamets

Lion’s mane is an edible medicinal mushroom native to Asia, North America, and Europe. It was used for centuries as a general health tonic and treatment, but has more recently been recognized for its neuroprotective qualities and ability to enhance cognitive function. This brain boosting superfood improves memory, focus and concentration, increases energy levels, reduces anxiety and depression, and may even be able to reverse cell degeneration in the brain.
