Cordyceps Extract 300g Organic


There are different strains of Cordyceps, which have got similarities, but are not the same! The traditional Ophiocordyceps sinensis, wild harvested at high altitudes in Tibet, is now classified as an endangered species. We have chosen Cordyceps militaris as the ultimate strain, closest to the the Ophiocordyceps sinensis, which has got high content of active ingredients, can be cultivated via sustainable organic means and is good enough to supply a world demand. We make this extract from fruiting bodies. It is great for performance hence we call it the Qi fuel. Find out why yourself!

Product Description

Cordyceps facts

Cordyceps sinensis, whose correct Latin name is Ophiocordyceps sinensis (Dong Chong Xia Cao) is among the most valued medicinal mushrooms. It is quite different to other fungi in the fact that its preferred substrate is insect. It is usually harvested in very high altitude climate zones, such as the high altitudes of Tibet and Nepal. Unfortunately, due to its medicinal  properties, which led to enormous market demand Ophiocordyceps sinensis has been added to the list of endangered species.

DNA similarities between Cordyceps strains

Several species are widely available on the world market and there is usually confusion around them. The CS-4 strain became very popular especially among people that do physical performance. Its DNA analysis shows it is 70-75% identical to the Ophiocordyceps sinensis.

Cordyceps militaris is on the rise of interest. Its DNA analysis shows it is  80-85% identical to Ophiocordyceps sinensis.  Hirsutella sinensis is a strain, which was shown to be about 95-97% identical to the O.sinensis. But there is more into it.

Cordyceps sinensis vs. Cordyceps militaris

It is useful to know that CS-4/Cordyceps sinensis is mainly grown via SMF(Submerged fermentation), meaning their substrate is liquid and they cannot produce fruiting bodies, the result is only mycelium biomass. Lower quality is even grown via SSF(Solid State Fermentation) which means grains and mycelium together often only dried and encapsulated.

Cordyceps militaris is cultivated via SSF(Solid State Fermentation), and therefore can be controlled via organic means. Also-when grown on solid substrate Cordyceps militaris can produce fruiting bodies without use of any insects, hence the extract from fruiting bodies is richer in beneficial components. Usually the higher content of beta glucans is found in the fruiting bodies of the mushroom organism, not in the mycelium.

We choose Cordyceps militaris

Our organic Cordyceps militaris extract contains substantial levels of beta glucans and cordycepin (3-deoxyadenosine). We choose this particular strain as it can be cultivated  via organic means and most importantly it produces fruiting bodies without insects. Fungi are complex and intelligent organisms. The ability to produce fruting bodies is a sign that the mushroom organism is mature and strong enough. It concentrates high amounts of protective compounds into “the mushroom”.  Of the three species, the life cycle of Cordyceps militaris reflects the life cycle of Ophiocordyceps sinensis, and we believe that this fact if of great importance.

Last but not least-it is the ultimate strain, offering the actives of Ophiocordyceps sinensis and it can sustainably supply a world demand for Cordyceps, and it can be grown on grain substrate to produce its potent fruiting bodies.

Health benefits of Cordyceps militaris

Scientific research shows that Cordyceps species have wide range of of benefits to offer. Here are some:  immune-modulating, increasing the uptake of oxygen, increase blood circulation, kidney supportive, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor. Cordyceps  militaris was evaluated for its anti-inflammatory properties. Many active compounds such as mannitol, ergosterol, polysaccharides, and cordycepin have been identified from Cordyceps militaris.

In TCM Cordyceps is known as able to improve the Qi. That last one we can confirm about our  organic Cordyceps militaris extract on 100%, hence we call it “Qi fuel”.t Product Description
