Cordyceps mushrooms are believed to have been discovered around 2000 years ago and have been used ever since in Chinese and Tibetan medicine. The fungus originally only grew in high altitude areas of the himalayan mountain.
The mushroom, in its original form, has fascinated mycologists for many years due to the unique way in which they take their form. A large majority of Cordyceps are grown on the larvae of insects, particularly caterpillars; attacking the animal and ultimately taking over the caterpillar’s body and using it as a host. However we have opted for the vegan variation of the mushroom. Cordyceps can be cultivated with only plants.
By law, we cannot discuss the ‘benefits’ of the Cordyceps Mushroom but the growth in popularity of the product in the UK over the last few years speaks for itself! We find it is as popular with our sponsored athletes as we do with parents of some of our staff.
If you’re interested in trying Cordyceps, we would recommend doing some research and seeing if it is the right mushroom capsule for you. If not, take a look at our vast array of mushroom capsules, we are sure you will find what you’re looking for.
Many companies have opted to use the full mushroom within their products as opposed to an extract. Using the full mushroom results in the finished product likely not containing enough of the active ingredient. This is why we only use extract.
Although there is only 400mg of extract contained within the capsule, there’s 15x the amount of active ingredient stored in it (6000mg)! This is why we say the product is made using a 15:1 Extract.
The only thing magic about these mushrooms is their premium quality! None of our mushroom capsules contain any compound that will give any psychoactive effects to users.
