The health benefits of Lion's Mane mushrooms

Lion's Mane mushroom is an edible and medicinal mushroom that has been cultivated for use in Vietnam, China and Japan, and believed by some to have benefits to treat neurological dis-eases.

The mushroom has a unique appearance, resembling a cheerleader's "pom pom" with tentacles that hang down like teeth. Those teeth are used to make and release spores, which are the seeds that allow it to reproduce.
