Besides Chaga, Reishi and Co., Hericium also joins the ranks of superfood mushrooms. It is a rare mushroom native to ancient forests of Europe, China, Japan and North America. Its coral-like appearance earned the Hericium Erinaceus mushroom very fanciful names. It is also called hedgehog spiny beard, also monkey head mushroom, lion's mane or jap. yamabushitake.
