Hericium erinaceus, a well known edible mushroom, has numerous biological activities. Especially hericenones and erinacines isolated from its fruiting body stimulate nerve growth factor (NGF) synthesis, which expects H. erinaceus to have some effects on brain functions and autonomic nervous system. Herein, we investigated the clinical effects of H. erinaceus on menopause, depression, sleep quality and indefinite complaints, using the Kupperman Menopausal Index (KMI), the Center for… Expand
Therapeutic Potential of Hericium erinaceus for Depressive Disorder
TLDR
This article critically reviews the current literature on the potential benefits of H. erinaceus as a treatment for depressive disorder as well as its mechanisms underlying the antidepressant-like activities. Expand
Improvement of cognitive functions by oral intake of Hericium erinaceus.
TLDR
It is speculated that various chemical compounds in the mushroom have multiple effects to the brain neural networks and improve cognitive functions and oral intake of H. erinaceus is safe and convenient method for dementia prevention so far. Expand
Marked improvement of neurocognitive impairment after treatment with compounds from Hericium erinaceum: A case study of recurrent depressive disorder
Hericium erinaceum (HE; “Yamabushitake” in Japanese) is an edible mushroom that was named after the pom-poms worn by traditional warrior monks or the Yamabushi. HE has numerous multifunctionalExpand
Amycenone, a nootropic found in Hericium erinaceum
TLDR
Amycenone, which is an activator of brain function that is obtained from extracts of the Yamabushitake, has been found to pass through the blood–brain barrier, and its safety as a health food is currently being ascertained. Expand
Anti-obesity activity of Yamabushitake (Hericium erinaceus) powder in ovariectomized mice, and its potentially active compounds
TLDR
It is suggested that H. erinaceus has an anti-obesity effect during menopause because it decreases the ability to absorb lipids. Expand
Potential Antidepressant Effects of Scutellaria baicalensis, Hericium erinaceus and Rhodiola rosea
TLDR
These three traditional folk medicinal herbs target the main biochemical events that are implicated in mental disorders, mimicking, to some extent, the mechanisms of action of conventional antidepressants and mood stabilizers with a wide margin of tolerability. Expand
Improving effects of the mushroom Yamabushitake ( Hericium erinaceus ) on mild cognitive impairment : a double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial
A double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled trial was performed on 50to 80-yearold Japanese men and women diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment in order to examine the efficacy of oralExpand
A comprehensive review of the therapeutic effects of Hericium erinaceus in neurodegenerative disease
TLDR
H. erinaceus can be considered as useful therapeutic agents in the management and/or treatment of neurodegeneration diseases, however, this review focuses on in vitro, in vivo and clinical trials for neurodegerative disease. Expand
Hericium erinaceus Extract Reduces Anxiety and Depressive Behaviors by Promoting Hippocampal Neurogenesis in the Adult Mouse Brain.
TLDR
Results indicate that chronic HE administration can exert anxiolytic and antidepressant-like effects, possibly by enhancing adult hippocampal neurogenesis by enhancing hippocampal progenitors by HE treatment. Expand
Hericium erinaceus Improves Mood and Sleep Disorders in Patients Affected by Overweight or Obesity: Could Circulating Pro-BDNF and BDNF Be Potential Biomarkers?
TLDR
Whether a Hericium erinaceus treatment improved depression, anxiety, sleep, and binge eating disorders after 8 weeks of supplementation in subjects affected by overweight or obesity under a low calorie diet regimen is assessed. Expand

The Blatt-Kupperman menopausal index: a critique.
TLDR
The Blatt-Kupperman menopausal index has been used widely in studies of climacteric symptoms, but it now needs to be reassessed, and modern psychometrics has led to the publication of reliable and valid scales. Expand
Hypolipidemic Effect of an Exo-biopolymer Produced from a Submerged Mycelial Culture of Hericium erinaceus
The hypolipidemic effect of an exo-biopolymer produced from a submerged mycelial culture of Hericium erinaceus was investigated in dietary-induced hyperlipidemic rats. Hypolipidemic effects wereExpand
Hericenones C, D and E, stimulators of nerve growth factor (NGF)-synthesis, from the mushroom Hericium erinaceum
Abstract Novel compounds, hericenones C ( 3 ), D ( 4 ) and ( 5 ) were isolated from the mushroom Hericium erinaceum . These structures were determined by interpretation of the spectral data, andExpand
An endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-suppressive compound and its analogues from the mushroom Hericium erinaceum.
TLDR
Three new compounds were isolated from the mushroom Hericium erinaceum and showed the protective activity against endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-dependent Neuro2a cell death, however, compounds 2 and 3 did not. Expand
Soluble components of Hericium erinaceum induce NK cell activation via production of interleukin-12 in mice splenocytes
TLDR
WEHE indirectly activates the cytolytic ability of NK cells via the induction of IL-12 in total splenocytes, and possibly via other immuno-mediators or cellular components. Expand
Dilinoleoyl-phosphatidylethanolamine from Hericium erinaceum protects against ER stress-dependent Neuro2a cell death via protein kinase C pathway.
TLDR
Dilinoleoyl-phosphatidylethanolamine (DLPE) was one of the molecules effective at reducing ER stress-dependent cell death in the mouse neuroblastoma cell line Neuro2a cells, concluding that DLPE has potential as a protective molecule inER stress-induced cell death. Expand

Effects of denaturation and amino acid modification on fluorescence spectrum and hemagglutinating activity of Hericium erinaceum Lectin.
TLDR
A sialic acid-binding lectin, isolated from fresh fruiting bodies of Hericium erinaceum, was treated with various temperature and pH and it was found that the hemagglutinating activity of HEL was relatively steady below 60 degrees and at pH from 6 to 11, and the change of hemag GLUTinating activity was relative to thechange of hydrophobic areas where tryptophan residues located.
