Cordyceps Mushroom Benefits
Supports Lung Function
Here are some of the reported health benefits of Cordyceps mushroom:
- Adaptogenic properties
Cordyceps is considered an adaptogen, which means it may help the body adapt to stress and promote overall balance.
- Increased energy and endurance
Cordyceps is believed to enhance physical stamina and improve exercise performance, making it popular among athletes.
- Immune system support
Some studies suggest that Cordyceps may have immunomodulatory effects, supporting the immune system's function.
- Respiratory health
Cordyceps has been used traditionally to support respiratory health and may be beneficial for individuals with certain respiratory conditions.
- Antioxidant activity
Cordyceps contains antioxidants that help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body, protecting cells from oxidative damage.
- Anti-inflammatory effects
There is some evidence suggesting that Cordyceps may possess anti-inflammatory properties.
Cordyceps is earthy, slightly sweet and savory. Pleasant on its own or added to coffee, hot chocolate or a smoothie.
Start with 1/2 a teaspoon in hot water or organic coffee and then build up to 1 teaspoon over about 7 days.
You can add it to porridge, cereal, hot chocolate or a smoothie.
- Wood Grown - not oat grown (for potency and integrity)
- Heavy metal testing on every batch
- Ancient wisdom applied in the extraction process
We are a bit geeky here at ENRICHD and LOVE to read the studies on our beloved mushrooms. Here is a conclusion on a double blind, placebo controlled study on the strain we offer, Cs-4.
"This pilot study suggests that supplementation with Cs-4 (Cordyceps sinensis) improves exercise performance and might contribute to wellness in healthy older subjects.""12 weeks of treatment with Cs-4 resulted in an increase in metabolic threshold of 10.5% and increase in ventilatory threshold of 8.5%. These threshold values are submaximal, non–effort-dependent measures of exercise performance. They were selected by the metabolic measurement system and verified by two independent investigators. A higher metabolic threshold for lactate accumulation indicates better aerobic performance, and that is a subject could perform a higher level of exercise without fatigue."
