Lion’s Mane mushrooms have been used extensively in Asia for many years, owing to both their culinary delights, and their medicinal properties. Also known as yamabushitake or Hericium erinaceus, they feature long, shaggy spines, much like their name suggests. While studies into the benefits of medicinal mushrooms are not prolific, Lion’s Mane mushrooms have shown extremely promising results in clinical trials looking at cognitive improvements in humans.
They are a rich source of antioxidants and contain the polysaccharide beta gluten, which is a soluble fibre that supports the health of the heart and the digestive system. In traditional Chinese medicine, Lion’s Mane mushrooms are championed for their ability to support the immune system, digestive health and brain function.
Turkey tail mushrooms, also known as Trametes versicolor, are an inedible species of white rot fungus, renowned for their powerful medicinal properties. Like Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail is not only rich in antioxidants, but was also found to contain 35 different phenolic compounds in a 2017 study. Antioxidants reduce the progression of oxidative stress in the body caused by free radicals, and protect from disease.
In Chinese medicine Turkey Tail has long been hailed for its immune supporting and cancer fighting potential, which is now scientifically supported and attributed to the presence of polysaccharopeptides. Turkey Tail has been shown to have anti-tumor and antimicrobial properties in clinical studies.
