NOT A COMMON CORDYCEPS POWDER SUPPLEMENT: OUR CORDYCEPS CS-4 EXTRACT
Our product does not contain an ordinary Cordyceps powder but a highly dosed CS-4 extract (10:1). Thanks to the high extract ratio, we can put the equivalent of 5000 mg dried Cordyceps into one capsule. Our extract is derived from the mycelium which is obtained through fermentation and not through mummification of insect larvae. Hence, our product is completely vegan. Also, this form of production offers the possibility of standardization to bioactive compounds that are enriched in the mushroom’s mycelium.
Cordyceps is one of the best-known medicinal mushrooms. It has been an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 2000 years. The underlying reason is certainly the high concentration of valuable bioactive ingredients, including polysaccharides – which is why we chose an extract that is standardized to 40% polysaccharides. Our Cordyceps CS-4 comes from China, where the tradition around the medicinal mushrooms was born.
SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR
The polysaccharides found in Cordyceps are thought to have various health benefits, especially with regards to immune system function.
GOOD TO KNOW
- We recommend taking the product preferably in the morning on an empty stomach with plenty of water.
- The first documentation of the use of Cordyceps in Chinese folk medicine dates back to 1760 BC. However, Cordyceps only became famous in 1993, during the Chinese National Games in Beijing where several Chinese runners broke track and field records. These records remained unbeaten for 23 years and their coach claimed that his team's success was due to a tonic based on C. sinensis and turtle blood: This preparation passed the doping tests so the use of this unknown fungus began to spread around the world.
