Cordyceps, also known as the energy mushroom, is easily identified by its bright orange finger-like shape. First discovered high in the Himalayas over 2000 years ago, it has been used in Traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicine to promote energy, reduce fatigue, and support the immune system.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Cordyceps are thought to increase the body’s production of the molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate) at the cellular level, which is essential for delivering energy to the muscles. This may improve the way your body uses oxygen, especially during exercise .
Cordyceps are known to be beneficial due to the many bioactive components they contain including nucleotides, beta-glucans, sterols, terpenoids and more! Many of these compounds appear to have potent antioxidant properties and have been reported to strengthen the immune system and help fight inflammation in the body.
One of the main bio-actives in this mushroom is Cordycepin, which was first found in Cordyceps militaris. Cordycepin appears to have widespread pharmacological actions and has been studied for its anti-inflammatory, immunological, antioxidant, and antiviral properties.
