Supercharge yourself with Cordyceps

Updated: Oct 28, 2022

What is cordyceps?

Cordyceps is also called caterpillar fungus as it is a parasitic fungus and lives on certain types of caterpillars. It comes from China where it grows at high altitude and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine. For a long time, this mushroom has been considered a luxury product as it is very rare. Since no difference in quality has been seen between the wild growing and the cultivated mushroom, it has become cheaper and demand is high.

Why is cordyceps good?

Cordyceps has been important in holistic medicine for centuries and has long been known for its anti-aging health promoting properties.

In recent years, research on the Cordyceps mushroom has found properties such as:

  • It improves athletic performance,

  • Promotes heart health

  • Reduces inflammation and infections

  • Fights free radicals

Cordyceps fight disease and have been used for centuries to reduce respiratory symptoms, coughs, colds, liver damage and more.

It is believed that the many anti-inflammatory benefits of Cordyceps stem from their ability to positively influence the immune system, combat oxidative stress and stimulate protective cells that keep the body free from mutations and infections. Studies have found that Cordyceps can be used as a cancer treatment in some cases as the mushroom naturally counteracts the growth of tumors and cancer cells.
