What are Cordyceps mushrooms?
Cordyceps have a unique shape and lifecycle compared to other mushrooms. They have a long thin yellowish stem with a rounded end. In the wild, they can be found growing all over the world out of the bodies of insects. Their lifecycle begins as the spores land on the insect. As they grow, hyphae weave into the body and kill the insect. The Cordyceps fruiting body grows out of the insect’s head. However, most Cordyceps are grown on farms in Asia. Cordyceps mushrooms are high in polysaccharides which have been shown to improve energy and reduce stress.

What are Some Cordyceps Mushroom Benefits?
Studies have been conducted on animals and humans to determine the benefits of Cordyceps. Below are just a few of the studies.

  • Improved Exercise Performance: One study found a 7% increase in VO2 max, a measurement to determine fitness level, from consuming three grams of Cordyceps per day. This mushroom has been shown to boost the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which delivers energy to muscles and can improve the way the body uses oxygen during exercise.
  • Slow the Aging Process: Increased concentrations of antioxidants have shown Cordyceps to have incredible anti-aging properties. Studies have shown improvement in older participants in memory, energy, and sexual drive. Another study found giving Cordyceps to mice helped them to live longer.

Are There Cordyceps Mushroom Side Effects?
One-half teaspoon of pure Cordyceps extract one to three times a day is all that is needed for an effective Cordyceps regimen. If more than that is consumed, side effects such as diarrhea, constipation, and stomach discomfort may occur.

Can Cordyceps Infect Humans?
Experts agree that it is highly implausible for Cordyceps to infect humans, such as in the fictional series “The Last of Us”. Cordyceps cannot take root in human skin, nor do they transfer any kind of infection.

What is Cordyceps Mushroom Powder?
