Lion's Mane mushrooms - Hericium erinaceus - are quite unique, from the pom-pom like shape, to the way that it cooks. Before you go to slice up your Lion's Mane, try gently pulling it apart with your fingers. It shreds just like chicken breast and is very easy to cook with. It holds its shape throughout cooking, it has a slight lobster-like taste to it, but it seems to absorb flavor of everything else like most mushrooms.
Lion's Mane is commonly found in nootropic supplements today, enhancing brain functions. It, like most mushrooms is also thought to contain anti-cancer properties. Lion's Mane is a powerful brain food, stimulating nerve growth factor (NGF) production. NGF aids in maintaining neurons. Along with producing NGF, Lion's Mane alleviates symptoms of neuro-degenerative diseases.
This mushroom has also shown to reduce feelings of irritability and anxiety, which also suggests it may work for mild symptoms of depression. Lion's Mane is rich in antioxidants, improving gut health and supporting cardiovascular health. This is truly one amazing 'shroom.
