Cordyceps Mushrooms


For over 300 years, Cordyceps has been used as a remedy to treat chronic fatigue, low libido and kidney ailments of various kinds. In a more traditional setting, this fungus was made available only through the harvesting of Cordyceps Sinensis wildly which is a specie that grows on caterpillars naturally in the plateau areas of the Tibetan. This wild version, though odd ended up becoming a rare species, with a pound of it being sold for more than $20,000 US Dollars! Luckily, a different specie which we are as powerful was discovered. It is called Cordyceps militaris with the only distinction being that it does not require growth on insects and can be grown organically on soy and rice. This makes it a better option for us.
