QUESTION: WHY DID THE FUNGI LEAVE THE PARTY?
ANSWER: BECAUSE THERE WASN’T MUSHROOM.
Lion’s Mane mushroom, also known as Hericium erinaceus, hou tou gu or yamabushitaki, is a large, whitish, and shaggy mushroom resembling—you guessed it—a Lion’s Mane. This mushroom has culinary and medical applications in some Asian countries, and boasts tons of brain power. Studies show lion’s mane promotes nerve growth, which could aid in the prevention of dementia, and supports memory, concentration, and all-around cognitive function. It’s the smarty-pants of mushrooms, keeping you focused and on-point throughout your day.
