    Hedgehog hydne, in Japan Yamabushitake (mountain monk mushrooms) or Houtou, has been used for a long time in traditional medicine and for example in China against stomach pain and certain cancers. Polysaccharides with anti-tumor properties have been studied for more than 30 years. It is used for the regeneration of nerves (myelin producer) and against senility.
