Organic Ophiocordyceps Sinensis Mycellium Extract
Raw Transformational Power
When the Chinese National Womens Track and Field team broke NINE world records in 1993, they were accused of cheating….
Illegal drugs to enhance their performance.
However the athletes secret wasn’t a synthetic hormone to boost their physical capacities to new heights, nor was it some “miracle” exercise routine (though their coach was well known for pushing them to the limit… there is no substitute for hard work!).
A huge debate ensued and after much scrutiny, it was found that the athletes weren’t taking drugs at all.
Instead the world found they were taking a rarefied extract of a Chinese herb, known as “Caterpillar Fungus” (AKA, Ophiocordyceps Sinensis)… an herb used for hundreds of years in Chinese and Tibetan medicine.
What are the benefits?
Modern day research has illuminated much of what has been known for hundreds of years, that Cordyceps is one of the most potent ways of increasing stamina, endurance and raw physical power.
For generations, Ophiocordyceps Sinensis (or just simply Cordyceps Mushroom) has been used to alleviate fatigue, increase libido and boost overall health.
Some of the many benefits of cordyceps include:
Traditionally used as a powerful stamina tonic
Supports proper immune function
Helps improve overall kidney and lung function
May help boost free testosterone
Ophiocordyceps Sinensis (Chinese: Dong Chong Xia Cao) has a somewhat mysterious history and arrived in the Chinese medicine system most likely from Tibetan medicine (where it is called Yarsta Gunbu).
The rough terrain of the Tibetan plateau seems to give rise to herbs that have extremely potent adaptogenic action, and cordyceps is no exception…
From helping to balance blood sugar levels to the potential of protecting the kidneys from malfunction, Cordyceps has many more uses than just sports performance (which it excels at!).
However, for those seeking peak performance, Cordyceps has been known to:
Increase immunity (More than half of the studies between 1991 to 1997 related to cordyceps were on its immunomodulatory activity)…
Increase VO2 max in those with reduced breathing capacity…
Powerfully motivate sex drive by increasing testosterone…
Reduce recovery time from strenuous physical activity…
Having the ability to bestow such superhuman powers, one wonders why this herb isn’t more well known…
Well, that could have something to do with the ASTRONOMICAL cost the wild mushroom comes at (currently upwards of $250 per GRAM!)… in addition to the black market trade that has erupted from the massive demand for the wild mushroom (certainly not ethical).
So, what is the aspiring superhuman to do? Break the bank for superior performance?
The Technology Behind Corydceps Power
Fortunately modern science has presented us with a more cost effective solution… one that comes as close as possible to replicating the power of real, wild Ophiocordyceps Sinensis.
The problem is that the cordyceps mushroom has always been collected in the wild by hand. Only recently has there been progress in creating a sustainable and standardized way to get this awesome herb out to the masses.
Advanced mushroom cultivation and fermentation technology has been developed to unlock the power of cordyceps by growing it on a polysaccharide rich medium.
While this doesn’t allow for us to use the fruiting bodies (yet), it is currently the most effective way of getting a high quality mycellium extract that is pure, organic and without mold, bacteria and other contaminants (very common in wild cordyceps).
Cordyceps Power is the preeminent ophiocordyceps extract using this technology, finally making a high quality organic extract (not just ineffective mycellium powder as most other products are made of) available.
By starting with the original strain used in Tibetan and Chinese medicine, fermenting the liquid medium upon which it is grown, and then extracting the resultant “mushroom broth” at a 10:1 ratio, we end up with a powerful and standardized extract you will feel within minutes of your first dose.
This process allows for optimal absorption of the cordycepin (cordycepin-3′-deoxyadenosine), adenosine (the stuff that metabolic energy is made of!), mannitol, fatty acids, amino acids, beta 1-3 glucan polysaccharides, and various sterols inherent in true cordyceps.
Suggested use and recipe: Take 1/2 teaspoon 2 to 3 times per day with water, juice or a meal. Traditional herbal combinations include rhodiola and ginseng (though the vast majority of consumption is just done with the singular herb). Always remember to start with smaller amounts and work your way up over the course of a few weeks to get the best results!
