Lion's mane (Hericium erinaceus) is a type of medicinal mushroom. Long used in traditional Chinese medicine, lion's mane is widely available in supplement form. Scientific research shows that lion's mane contains a number of health-promoting substances, including antioxidants and beta-glucan.
According to a study titled "Neuronal Health – Can Culinary and Medicinal Mushrooms Help?" the culinary mushroom that has been extensively studied for its neurohealth properties is H. erinaceus (Lion's Mane mushroom). The polysaccharides in an aqueous extract of the Lion's mane mushroom could induce neuronal differentiation and promote neuronal survival.

Shiitake mushrooms have long been used in traditional Chinese medicine. They’re also part of the medical traditions of Japan, Korea, and Eastern Russia. In Chinese medicine, shiitake are thought to boost health and longevity, as well as improve circulation. Studies suggest that some of the bioactive compounds in shiitake may protect against cancer and inflammation.
Shiitake mushrooms are a great addition to anyone’s diet and are mainly known for their immune system support,” says dietitian Kait Fortunato. They contain lentinan, which makes our immune system strong, helping to fight off disease and infection. The American Cancer Society says lentinan is believed to stop or slow tumor growth, too, though it notes that more clinical trials are needed to understand the mushrooms’ effectiveness.
Shiitake mushrooms also contain a compound called D-Eritadenine (DEA),” adds Fortuna. DEA helps lower cholesterol and supports cardiovascular health.
Finally, shiitakes are a good source of iron and antioxidants. The iron is key for vegetarians, whose diets may be lacking in it, while antioxidants help reduce free radicals.

Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is a type of mushroom that grows mainly on birch trees in northern Europe, Asia, Canada, and the northeastern United States. Long used in folk medicine, Chaga contains massive amounts of the pigment melanin. When exposed to the sun, the exterior of the mushroom will turn a deep black, while the interior will remain a bright orange-ish color. Chaga also contains among the highest levels of oxalate (a compound linked to kidney stones) of any living organism.
The Chaga mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) is claimed to have beneficial properties for human health, such as anti-bacterial, anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities. The antioxidant effects of the mushroom may be partly explained by protection of cell components against free radicals.
