What are Cordyceps Capsules
Nammex Certified Organic Cordyceps militaris whole fruiting body mushroom extract (>25% Beta-Glucans and 0.2% Cordycepin).
Prized for their natural ability to fight free radicals, infections, and inflammation, cordyceps are impressive disease-fighting mushrooms that have been used for centuries to reduce symptoms of respiratory disorders, coughs, colds, liver damage and much more. As a true “superfood,” the cordyceps mushroom can slow the effects of aging and stress, help keep the body free from disease and boost energy levels to keep you going all day long.
Cordyceps fungus is sometimes called the caterpillar fungus; it’s parasitic in nature because it grows on a type of caterpillar and then winds up eating its own host! The base of the mushroom forms from the insect’s larva and is dark brown to black, attaching itself to the organism and growing about six inches long. Once it fully matures, cordyceps actually consume more than 90 percent of the infected insect. They then swell up and enlarge to become about 300–500 milligrams in weight.
The first people to discover the many benefits of cordyceps initially observed animals eating the wild fungus and growing strong in the process. Farmers and herders began to use the fungus in powder form to make tonics and teas. Some of the first uses for these tonics were increasing milk production and improving the reproductive capacity of livestock. Later on, people began drying cordyceps in sunlight to preserve their potent benefits.
It’s believed that the many anti-inflammatory benefits of cordyceps stem from their ability to positively affect the immune system, fighting oxidative stress and stimulating protective cells that keep the body free from mutations and infections.
Additionally, research shows that cordyceps can act as mild stimulants or “adaptogen herbs,” fighting stress and fatigue while also naturally increasing energy levels.
Benefits of Cordyceps
Cordyceps has a number of well-reported benefits, they are as follows:
Improves Athletic Performance
A 2010 study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine demonstrated that supplementation with Cs-4 (Cordyceps Sinensis) improved exercise performance and contributed to overall markers of wellness in older adults. (9) Considered an energizing adaptogen like other superfood herbs such as maca or cacao, cordyceps are often used to help fight fatigue, treat muscle aches and prevent weakness.
Supports Heart Health
Recent research has found a strong link between cordyceps and heart health, with studies showing that it could help protect the heart against damage and lower cholesterol levels to prevent coronary heart disease.
Cordyceps are jam-packed with antioxidants that can help fight free radical damage, prevent oxidative stress and help slow the signs of aging to optimize your health. Although research on the anti-aging effects of this medicinal mushroom is primarily limited to animal studies, research shows that it can boost brain function, enhance memory and may even extend longevity.
