So, without any more fluff here we go:
What Is Lions Mane Mushroom?
Well, it may not look like a Mushroom, but the Lions Mane Mushroom is certainly part of the fungi family. Generally, the fungi is found growing on hardwoods in forests around Northern Europe, and Asia.
The big shaggy mass is looks like a huge mane growing from the side of the tree, which gives the shroom it’s quite impressive name.
Although the fungi is found here in the UK, it was traditionally used in Indica, China, Japan and other regions across Asia as a natural remedy; like everything, it has been leaked with ‘fertility’ but recored to be used as a booster of ‘vitality’. Which could be the same thing.
In those days, the Mushroom was eaten raw, cooked, dried and ground in a powder to be added to food, or steeped in tea. It was consumed this way for thousands of years before science became involved and started to understand the benefits of Lions Mane significantly better.
What are the Benefits?
We shall keep this section short – there is no point boring you here with intimate sciency details. Although we will need talk about some.
The main benefits of the Lion’s Mane Mushroom are:
- Increased Cognitive Function and Neurone & Nerve Recovery / Development
- Digestive System Protection and Digestive Immune System Support
- Anti-inflammatory and Anti-Oxidant
There is also a clear link between a regular mushroom supplement and a healthy gut biome. This gut biome is incredibly important for your immune system, brain function and other essential regulatory actions. Lion’s Mane is linked to soothing your gut and creating a brilliant environment for the good bacteria which aid digestion, among many other extremely important processes (which we’ve mentioned above).
Reduction in Oxidative Stress
Oxidative stress is something we all, at points, suffer from. It is a build up of ‘free-radicals’ within our bodily system which can cause general inflammation, and chronic health conditions. Lion’s Mane is said to reduce the free radicals in your body which, in itself, keeps your body operating normally.

Is Lions Mane Legal in the UK?
Lion’s Mane’s legal status is currently very clear, to purchase, possess and even grow Lion’s Mane is not illegal in the UK. However, due to the fact that Lion’s mane is extremely rare in the UK, it is illegal to harvest this mushroom if you come across it in the wild.
This is in an attempt to protect the wild mushroom as it is highly protected and has a short shelflife once it is harvested.
