We are excited to officially announce the addition to our medicinal mushroom family - Cordyceps Mushroom Powder!
You have probably heard about this unique, long, spindly shaped mushroom from the hit show "The Last of Us". Don't fret - it will not cause an apocalyptic pandemic. We are glad that despite the not so great depiction of Cordyceps mushroom on this show, we have still have had many people reach out and ask when we will carry this powerful mushroom. Cordyceps (also scientifically known as Cordyceps militaris) is a mushroom that has garnered popularity for its wide array of benefits and has especially attracted attention from high performing athletes. In fact, it became popular in the 1990's after a group of Chinese athletes put their Olympic success on the track due to their consumption of a tonic containing cordyceps powder. Cordyceps are found all over the world, but are most commonly found throughout Asia, due to the high density of species found in tropical rain forests. The traditional Cordyceps Sinensis (also known as caterpillar fungas) originates from mountains high up in China.
Cordyceps, just like most medicinal mushrooms, holds a wide range of health benefits. Most commonly, Cordyceps is used as a way to increase endurance and energy levels. This is due to its ability in increasing the body's production of the molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is essential for delivering energy to the muscles. This improves the way your body uses oxygen, which is especially important during exercise. Cordyceps is also known as "Himalayan Viagra" due to its positive effects on sexual stamina enhancement. With its wide array of benefits, there is no question as to why so much attention is given to this spindly mushroom.
