“Lion’s mane mushrooms are increasingly studied for their neuroprotective effects. Two novel classes of Nerve Growth Factors (NGFs) — molecules stimulating the differentiation and re-myelination of neurons — have been discovered in this mushroom so far. These cyathane derivatives are termed “hericenones” and “erinacines.” The levels of these compounds can vary substantially between strains, based on the measurements our team has conducted.” From: Huffington Post Blog

Lion’s Mane may be hard to find as a food, but it is can often be found in capsules at your local nutritional or organic store.  You may also be able to grow it yourself.
