Long Description

Imagine a fungus that can control minds, make its host do what it wants & then ultimately consume it from the inside out - that's exactly what the cordyceps mushroom is - but it’s not all just horror when it comes to this fungus, its actually one of the most powerful medicinal mushrooms on this planet. 

Folklore states that 1,500 years ago, Tibetan yak- herders noticed that mountain- grazed animals grew stronger & lived longer than those that consumed the grasses at lower elevations. At first they thought it was the robust mountain grass that was responsible, but then an unknown shepherd stumbled upon the answer - Cordyceps 

This fungus grew in the high-altitude meadows as entomopathogenic fungi that attacks & colonizes many insects that hibernate just below the soil surface during the cold Tibetan winter. By summertime, the fungus consumes the entire insect & shoots out a small, club-shaped fruiting body that emerges from the soil to spread its spores. Whilst this is how they were discovered this is not how we get our medicines, as a vegan company we assure you no worms were harmed in the making of our Cordyceps extracts. We utilize supremely cultivated Cordyceps Militaris in order to get the best fungi possible. 

Cordyceps mushrooms are filled with powerful phytochemicals - of particular interest are adenosine, cordycepic acid, ophiocordin & finally the nucleoside, cordycepin. The protein bound polysaccharides CP-1, CP-2 as well CO-N, SN-C & CO-1 have also been identified. 

One of cordyceps main claims to fame is its unmatched ability to increase energy & combat fatigue - it does this by increasing production of the molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is essential for delivering energy to the muscles. This also improves the way our bodies use oxygen, especially during exercise. 

Cordyceps also has a wonderful ability to increasing libido & sexual function, it highly influences the release of testosterone, increase blood circulation, & also enhance erectile function, virility & stamina 

It is especially good for women who may be in the menopause or post-menopausal - this is partly because it enhances the biosynthesis of the steroid hormones cortisol, oestrogen & testosterone. 

Cordyceps has immunostimulating & immunoregulating activity, notably its polysaccharides have been found to stimulate phagocytotic function & macrophage activity. Many studies have also found that normal T-cells are not affected by cordyceps while defective T- cells are - thus validating its ability at boosting suppressed immune function.
