Lions Mane (Hericium erinaceus) is an impressive looking mushroom! It grows on wood stumps and logs in North America, Asia and Europe, and is usually found in late summer and fall. It is also called Hedgehog mushroom with good reason. As it grows it develops elongated spikes that look like a hedgehog or Lions Mane. It can grow quite large and may weigh up to one pound.
It is eaten as a delicacy and has a mild flavor. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has used this species for centuries for its positive benefits, and to maintain “Qi”, a person’s vital energy. Modern science is investigating this mushroom’s ability to support cognitive function* and a healthy nervous system*, as well as a healthy immune response*.
