For centuries, Cordyceps was available only to the royal families of Asia. Wildcrafted from the most remote parts of the Himalayas, it was so rare that it sold for up to $35,000 per pound. Cordyceps enhances energy, vigor, stamina, and libido.
Cordyceps is a major adaptogen, meaning that it helps you deal with stress, tension, and fatigue. Herbalists believe that its nutrients promote the body’s natural balance and supports already healthy liver function, respiration, and inflammatory processes. For these reasons, holistic health systems say it promotes longevity.
The Cordyceps that was wildcrafted in the ancient past was the species called “sinensis.” Because its rarity has raised concerns of it becoming an endangered species, it almost never finds its way into the United States. Today, some companies claim to have spores of the original species, but the products they make from it are mycelium grown on grain.
In recent years, Cordyceps militaris has taken center stage. The nutritional profiles of militaris and sinensis are similar enough that practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine consider them interchangeable. Militaris mushrooms are rich in both Beta-D-glucans and Cordycepin, a factor thought to be responsible for many of Cordyceps’ special benefits.
MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X provides 300 mg of our 1:1 and 200 mg of our 10:1 extracts. Both extracts are 100% non-GMO, certified organic cordyceps militaris mushrooms that are hot water treated to rupture the mushroom cell walls and maximize nutrient bioavailability. The 1:1 extract provides rich levels of Beta-D-glucans while the 10:1 portion maximizes cordycepin, adenosine, and other valued nutrients. One capsule of MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X provides the equivalent of 2300 total milligrams of raw cordyceps militaris powder, or about 4 and a half times more than the 500 mg present in a capsule of our original, MyPure™ Cordyceps product.*
DOES NOT CONTAIN
For thousands of years, mushrooms have been used by the world’s great holistic traditions for their health benefits. Today, countless Americans use them as supplements.
However, most “mushroom” products are not mushrooms at all. They are mycelia. Mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of fungi that grow up through the ground. Mycelia are root-like structures that grow underground.
Because mycelia that grows in the wild are too fragile to harvest, those in supplements are grown in plastic bags on rice or other grains. As they mature, they become part of the grain. Because they cannot later be separated, what ends up in your capsule is over 50% grain.Mushroom benefits stem from mushroom nutrition, and mushroom fruiting bodies provide more of it than grain grown mycelia. The fruiting bodies provide:
- More vitamins & minerals
- More ergothioneines
- More di- & triterpenes
- Over 20 times more immune enhancing Beta-(1,3) (1,6)-D-Glucans
