Lion's Mane (Hericium Erinaceus) or bearded hedgehog is a tasty, edible mushroom, originating from Asia and North America. It owes its name to the spherical mycelium, covered with long icicles that resemble the mane of the king of animals. In China and Japan, it is treated as an exclusive delicacy, while in Europe it is systematically gaining popularity as a medical fungus.
The bearded hedgehog is characterized by a high content of valuable nutrients. It provides a lot of protein, it is rich in microelements (including iron, potassium, zinc, selenium) and polysaccharides. In addition, many biologically and pharmacologically active compounds can be found in its mycelium and fruiting bodies. The most valuable are diterpenoids, to which belong unique erinacins and hericenons. Scientific research indicates that there is no one specific compound responsible for the healing properties of the lion’s mane. This is rather due to the synergy of action of individual components.
