Lion's Mane Mushroom With a unique flavor alternately described as lobster or shrimp, 134 this gourmet delicacy with its out-of-this-world showy display of cascading 'teeth' also possesses singular health supporting properties - stimulating myelin and nerve regeneration 150, 151 - which upon further study may prove beneficial in a whole series of neurological conditions.  Paul Stamets suggests the possible usefulness of Lion's Mane Mushroom extract in conditions such as Alzheimer's, muscular dystrophy, M.S. and dementia. 134.

Lion's Mane Mushroom is known in the wild from North America, Europe, China and Japan.  It grows on many species of deciduous trees, in particular oak, walnut, beech, maple and sycamore.

The active compounds that have received the most attention for their nerve regenerating properties are named erinacines, a series of low molecular weight molecules that are able to pass through the blood brain barrier - an essential attribute for any health promoting compound expected to be able to effect healing on myelin or nerve tissue. 152, 153, 154

Two Japanese patents exist relating to Lion's Mane Mushroom extracts.  One from the 1990's for an extraction process of these compounds, yielding an extract known as Nerve Growth Stimulant factor. 150, 151  A more recent one from 2004 for a water extract of Lion's Mane Mushroom, 155 also for its nerve regenerating properties.

Although recent research on Lion's Mane Mushroom extract has been on its powerful effect on healing nerve tissue, in Traditional Chinese Health Lion's Mane Mushroom was used primarily for stomach conditions and cancers of the digestive organs.  Two modern studies have confirmed this ancient wisdom.  One done in 1985 showed positive results for treating atrophic gastritis.  Another from a decade later, 1995, showed some ameliorating effect on hepatoma, with a marked life extension of treated patients. 156

In conclusion, three additional health research studies on Lion's Mane Mushroom extract that are worth mentioning have shown it to possess the following properties: Immune stimulating 157; antimicrobial against Aspergillus, Candida, and bacilli 158; and anti-tumoral 159.

In his book "Mycelium Running," health supporting mushroom expert Paul Stamets also lists the following areas where research has shown Lion's Mane extract to have a beneficial effect: Inflammation; Nerve Tonic; Stomach Cancer. 134
