Organic Cordyceps Powder (50g)
Our organic Cordyceps powder is made from mushrooms we culture, grow and freeze-dry on site offering you the freshest cordyceps powder on the market. The majority of Cordyceps powder/capsules on offer are manufactured from dehydrated mushrooms. While dehydrating mushrooms to preserve them is an age-old tactic, around 20-30% of the medicinal benefits are lost when compared to fresh mushrooms during the dehydrating process. Freeze-drying preserves 99% of the mushrooms benefits offering a far superior product. We harvest our mushrooms and freeze-dry them immediately which brings you the freshest possible products.
Our organic Cordyceps powder is grown using the CS-4 substrate method making it suitable for vegans.
Cordyceps is a genius of parasitic fungi that grows on the larvae of insects (in the wild). When these fungi attack their host, they replace its tissue and sprout long, slender stems that grow outside the host’s body. The remains of the insect and fungi have been hand-collected, dried, and used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries to treat fatigue, sickness, kidney disease and low sex drive. We grow our Cordyceps using the CS-4 method using a vegan-friendly nutrient broth as the substrate.
Cordyceps has seen a recent explosion in the fitness industry. Cordyceps are thought to increase the body’s production of the molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is essential for delivering energy to the muscles. This may improve the way your body uses oxygen, especially during exercise. In one study, researchers tested their effects on exercise capacity in 30 healthy older adults using a stationary bike. Participants received either 3 grams per day of a synthetic strain of Cordyceps called CS-4 or a placebo pill for six weeks. By the end of the study, VO2 max had increased by 7% in participants who had taken CS-4, while participants given the placebo pill showed no change.
On top of Cordyceps ability to increase exercise performance, it’s also anti-inflammatory and high in polysaccharides and beta-glucans making it a fantastic gut-healthy prebiotic. With so many health benefits, it is no wonder that this nootropic mushroom is now being touted as a super mushroom. Why wouldn’t you want to include Organic Cordyceps powder as part of your healthy lifestyle?
