Why Cordyceps Is Still Our Favourite Herb And Should Be Yours Too

IF YOU FIND THIS ARTICLE HELPFUL SHARE AND HELP OTHERS!

Cordyceps is still our favourite herb and we think you should seriously consider adding it to your health supplement arsenal.

In the not so distant past whilst living what could only be described as a less than healthy life style in London, I found myself constantly lacking energy and feeling completely run down.

So I decided to take myself down to a reputable Chinese herbalist instead of visiting a regular Doctor who would have likely told me that I was technically healthy.

The Chinese Doctor gave me a short acupuncture session then recommended that I take a pack of Cordyceps away with me too. He told me it would “give me more energy” whatever that meant.

I followed the instructions on the packet and took my strange capsules twice a day before breakfast and dinner.

Not expecting much to change or for this Cordyceps stuff to do a thing, I was very surprised when after a few days I felt a million times better.

I then understood what this old Chinese doctor meant when he said they would “give me more energy” as this was exactly what it did!

Whatever Cordyceps was it had worked and my brain made a note of the name, a big bright note with a big gold star next to it!


Now some 15 years later from that first meeting with our humble Cordyceps, I am very pleased to be now selling what is probably a Cordyceps extract that is not only many times stronger, but also a purer herb than the one I took originally.

At Vitalherbs we made it our mission to only sell organic medicinal mushrooms to increase purity as well as to maintain the natural profile of the herbs.

Making sure that everything that is within a wild herb can be translated across to one cultivated commercially or as close as can be possible!

Rich in all the essentials such as cordycepin, polysaccharides and beta d glucans our organic Cordyceps extract is  also made from the fruiting body of the cordyceps Militaris fungus never the mycelium, as many companies seem to do these days.

We believe that keeping things as close to how nature intended is of paramount importance, so our organic Cordyceps extract powder is grown on silk worm larvae. To maintain, as much as we can, how it would have grown if in its natural state.

Extraction Process

The Cordyceps Militaris fungus that is grown is put through a hot water extraction technique, this process makes sure that almost all the polysaccharides and cordycepins are taken from Militaris fungus leaving nothing behind.

From our perspective not all herbal extracts are created equal and we pride ourselves on creating a organic Cordyceps extract powder that not only says it’s amazing but can prove these claims.

So to back up our claims of purity and strength all our medicinal mushroom extracts come with a detailed analysis that is made at the time of production. Below is the analysis for our Cordyceps Militaris extract.

CORDYCEPS IN THE NEWS

In 1993, three Chinese athletes set new world records in the National
Games in China. Their coach attributed their success to intensive
supplementation of the Cordyceps mushroom due to it’s ability to
increase endurance and improve lung function. 

More recently Cordyceps has been getting a lot of attention for its
ability to aid in endurance sports such as long distance running and
cycling, helping with recovery times from training. Rich Roll being a
great example of the new found interest in this amazing mushroom.

Rich Roll has been vegan since 2006, and was awarded the title of one of
2009’s ’25 Fittest Guys in the World’ by Men’s Fitness Magazine. He
is best known for his participation in the Ultraman World Championships,
which involves a 6.2 mile swim, 261.4 mile cycle and 52.4 mile run over
3 days.

SCIENTIFIC STUDIES

Several studies have shown Cordyceps extract to increase Natural Killer (NK) cells, our body’s first line of defense against infections and illness. In in-vitro study, Cordyceps significantly enhance the NK cell activity in healthy individuals as well as in patients with leukemia.

According to a study published in Chinese J Integrated Traditional Western Med, Cordyceps enhanced the NK cell activity in healthy individuals by 74% and increased the NK activity of leukemia patients by 400%. Similar improvements of NK cell activities were found in patients with melanoma cancer.

100% ORGANIC!

Our Cordyceps extract powder is 100% organic and is made from the fruiting body of the Cordyceps Militaris mushroom and not the mycelium. Because of this production method our Organic Cordyceps extract contains more of the beneficial beta-D-glucans found within the structure of the fruiting body.

It also has high level of cordycepin another important element without which the health benefits of Cordyceps diminishes.

Do not be fooled by quality claims with no analysis to back them up, all our organic mushroom extracts come with a analysis sheet!
