The Lion's Mane mushroom has long been treasured in Japan and China, both as a culinary delicacy and as an important medicinal mushroom. As a highly prized medicinal mushroom Japanese scientists have studied the Lion's Mane mushroom and have confirmed many diverse and important biological activities. It is a choice edible mushroom when young, and the texture of the cooked mushroom is often compared to seafood. When mature, the mushroom grows a “beard” - hence the name, but is not as flavourful as when it is young.
