Lion's Mane is a beautiful mushroom. It has been cultivated as a choice edible for many years, and more recently has been explored for it's amazing medicinal qualities. Johns Hopkins University recently found a direct relation between this mushroom and cognitive brain function in rats, as well as reduced neurotoxicity and stimulated nerve growth in their brains. This is a very promising lead in fighting diseases like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and traumatic brain injuries. I am very excited that this mushroom has been performing so well. It is hearty, healthy, and delicious!
