LIONS MANE Organic Mushroom Powder | Hericium erinaceus

SKU: Lions Mane Mushroom Hericium erinaceus
PriceFrom AU$16.00
  • Known in Latin as Hericium erinaceus, Lions Mane is native to North America, Europe and Asia, although it’s not cultivated widely in areas outside of Asia. It’s sometimes referred to as Hedgehog Mushroom, Yamabushitake or Houtou and it belongs to the Tooth Fungus or Hydnoid Fungi  group.


    Lions Mane mushrooms have long, dangling spines that are usually greater than a centimeter in length. Unlike most mushroom species, which have spines that project from a branch, the spines of Hericium erinaceus project outward, giving it that unique look of a lion’s mane.


    These mushrooms grow on both living and dead broadleaf trees and are common in the late summer and winter months.


    It has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal mushroom, especially among traditional Chinese medicine practitioners.


    Like many powerfully beneficial foods, Lions Mane mushroom has been known for some time in parts of Asia to be great for various body functions and conditions. Used in Japan for centuries and possibly millennia, the odd-looking fungus is revered by Buddhist monks and understood to be almost a mystical source of nutrition.


    A sect of Buddhist monks known as the Yamabushi wear a garment known as the 'Suzukake', fashioned from many long strands of fur, that bears a striking resemblance to the Lions Mane mushroom and probably accounts for why the mushroom is known in some areas as the Yamabushitake. Some sources state that it was reserved for royalty at different times in the past.
