Cordyceps are a unique parasitic mushroom that literally consumes death to create life by attacking and growing in caterpillar larvae. Wild harvested cordyceps are rare and extremely expensive but our USDA organic grown Cordyceps Sinensis are painstakingly cultivated from the highest quality Tibetan strains, reproducing the same light, temperature, and oxygen levels as its native environment. Our strand has the same genetics of the original, found where it was originally located. The result is a cordyceps with maximum potency and in fact have more active compounds then wild harvested.
Strong evidence exists that Cordyceps can immediately boost production and efficiency of ATP production in our bodies. ATP or Adenosine triphosphate is an organic compound and hydrotrope that's crucial to providing energy to our cellular processes. The result is an immediate boost to general athletic performance in humans regarding efficient energy metabolism resulting in increased endurance, reduced fatigue and quicker recovery. Asian Olympic athletes and world record performances are associated with the use of Cordyceps. This fungi medicine contains active ingredients cordycepin, cordycepic acid, sterols (ergosterol) and have been reported to exert immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and antitumor effects in specific cancers.*
A potent functional mushroom to enhance performance or for chronic disease treatments, a potent adaptogen to add to use as a varietal or in our blends.
Our Cordyceps contains:
mycelium, primordia, fruiting bodies, and extracellular compounds
