The Japanese name for Lion´s mane – yamabushitake – refers to the hermit Buddhist monks of Shugendo sect, whose ornamental garments are said to resemble the mushroom… It has been eaten and used medicinally in the East for centuries, and we are just beginning to understand its potential now in the West.

Much of the current interest around Lion´s mane is due to its effect on the brain and nervous system. Modern research has focused on its utility in cognitive function, support to mental clarity, concentration and productivity. Compounds unique to the Lions mane family known as hericenones and erinacenes have been shown to stimulate nerve growth factor (NGF) production. Hence it has been donned “brain food”! Interestingly, when the mushrooms are young, they are pink in colour and resemble little brains…

In traditional Eastern systems of medicine however, Lion´s mane was always used as a gut medicine – treating gastritis, gut cancers, gastric ulcers, general debility, etc. rather than for its cognitive benefit.  As we continue to understand the intimate connection between the brain and gut, we realise that the traditional and modern approaches may not be so distinct!
