Cordyceps Extract is a phenomenal world-class herb, which has earned its reputation in the forefront of Chinese herbalism due to its multitude of functions and benefits.
There are fossils that indicate the species of Cordyceps has been present in nature for over 48 million years. In ancient China, Cordyceps was referred to as “the animal that turned into a plant and back to animal again.” It wasn’t until a group of yak herders witnessed its effects on their herd that it was considered for human consumption.
These herders saw that after their yaks had consumed the vegetation containing this fungus, not only were they stronger and more resistant to high altitudes, but also healthier, longer lived, and with mating activity that had become more productive and frequent.
After putting two and two together, one brave herdsman experimented for himself. Immediately he experienced the remarkable effects Cordyceps had on his stamina, immune functions, and sexual drive, and thus, it spread like wildfire, becoming the hottest herbal commodity in the country.
Cordyceps restores Jing, the body's deepest energy reserve. Jing is responsible for brain function, fertility/reproductive health, body strength, immune function, bone development, and overall energetic output. It is both pre-natal and post-natal and synonymous in Chinese medicine as "pre-heaven" or "post-heaven."
This means jing is a combination of our quality of genetics inherited from our parent's lifestyles and genes, as well as our own nutrition and lifestyle. Thus, Jing has to do with who we are at our core. Cordyceps is THE Jing tonic to take, as it strengthens the kidneys without being too heating or drying like most Jing tonics.
Our Cordyeps is a potent, concentrated dual extract - not merely ground up raw mycelium. It has been 3rd party lab tested to contain 30% polysaccharides, 22% cordycepic acid and 0.15% adenosine. Through our extraction process, these active constituents are extracted from our Organic Cordyceps, and then concentrated to a 14 to 1 ratio. This means that FOURTEEN pounds of whole cordyceps is concentrated down into one pound of extract. This results in far more potency, bio-availability, and efficacy in less space.
We have had a relationship with our distributor for many years, and not only know exactly where our herbs grow, but ensure the purity and potency with 3rd party lab testing. We are involved in every step of the process and proud to take the extra effort to ensure the quality so you don’t have to. Our products are grown organically, extracted purely, and secured in their respective packaging without the use of any fillers.
"Since taking the cordyceps daily, I’ve eliminated the lag and crash and usually just have a smooth and predictable curve of energy that leaves me feeling good at the end of the day rather than exhausted. This cordyceps is potent and reliable." - Nicholas F.
"With the addition of the cordyceps my productivity levels are unreal! I can't wait until the Duanwood Reishi is added to this." - Mark M.
"I love combining your Organic Cordyceps extract with Reishi before studying for exams. I feel that the Cordyceps activates my mind, boosts my memory and gives me the mental stamina to keep going while the Reishi reduces my stress and helps me calm down, I feel a million times smarter and more collected on both these herbs, and my grades have gone up since taking them." - Kim, Pacific College of Oriental Medicine Grad school student
