As you guys know, I have been very into medicinal mushrooms lately. I have decided to tell you about each type of mushroom in more detail since it is very interesting and beneficial to one’s health. 

Lion’s Mane Mushroom has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. They are part of the tooth fungus group. They are located in North America, Europe, and Asia and grow in late summer and fall. This type of mushroom is white with hundreds of dangling “spines.” They grow downward in a circular mass off logs and trees.

Other than this mushroom being interesting to look at, they have been used for centuries to enhance brain function and reduce inflammation.  They are an all natural cognitive enhancer, supporting memory and concentration.

It is known as the ‘smart mushroom.’
