Traditional uses of Lion’s Mane:

Lion’s Mane is a mushroom with unique properties that protects the nervous system and supports its development and regeneration. It is known for its neuroprotective and neuroregenerative properties.

They stimulate the NGF nerve growth factor necessary for the neuronal survival, and stimulates the myelination process (production of myelin sheaths – responsible for protection and nutrition – around the axons of nerve cells). Buhner recommends Lion’s mane in its protocol extended with Lyme disease to reduce neurological symptoms and restore neuronal structures.

In addition, taking Lion’s mane is advisable for any problems on the part of the digestive system. It shows a soothing effect in stomach ulcers and in pre-cancerous conditions of the digestive system.


Lion’s mane should not be used by pregnant women and while breastfeeding. It should not be used with psychiatric drugs, antidepressants, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s medicines, and with anticoagulants. Lion’ s mane should not be used by transplant recipients who take prescription immunosuppresive drugs to prevent rejection of the transplant.
