Cordyceps Mushroom Extract Capsules
The “Caterpillar mushroom” (bot. Ophiocordyceps sinensis), also known as Cordyceps, originated in the highland plateaus of Tibet where it grows in caterpillars of the variety Thiratodes. Its Tibetan name “Jartsa Gunbu” means ‘Summergrass-Winterworm’ . This mushroom type has been gathered and used for at least 1000 years and is highly revered in traditional Tibetan and Chinese medicine. The caterpillar mushroom is said to have body strengthening and stabilising properties. Apparently, the successes of the Chinese athletes during the Olympic Games 1992 are believed to have been contributed to the consumption of the fungus. Meanwhile, Cordyceps have been put on the list of restricted doping agents.
The Cordyceps vitality mushroom extract that we offer is produced through a careful hot-water extraction process. Through this process, the extract is about 30 percent higher and richer in polysaccharides, an important active ingredient of the mushroom.
One capsule contains 300 mg dried extract which is made up of 71.4 % mushroom extract, 4.8 % organic Acerola extract - a natural source of Vitamin C which increases the absorption of polysaccharides into the body - as well as silica to prevent humidity. The capsule itself is made from natural cellulose.
