Cordyceps Mushroom History
Wild Ophiocordyceps Sinensis is a rare and expensive Chinese herb. It consists of a caterpillar and a blade-like mushroom body growing from one end. Its common Chinese name is “Winter worm, summer grass”. Due to the high cost of this herb, the Chinese produce the mycelium of this mushroom in liquid fermentation tanks. This pure mycelium product is primarily known as Cs-4. The authenticity of Cordyceps mycelium cultured from wild Cordyceps is not certain. Multiple cultures have been isolated from wild Cordyceps, and none have produced the mushroom, a standard pre-requisite for identity determination.
A large body of research has demonstrated that Cordyceps militaris has similar active compounds and activities to C. sinensis. Today, it is cultivated on substrates free from any insects Cordyceps Mushroom Uses.
Our mushroom extracts are commonly used as nutraceuticals, dietary and nutritional supplements. Traditionally Cordyceps are used for fatigue, general weakness, improved respiratory function. They also a component ingredient of nutritional supplements and vitamins. Mushroom extracts are also included in many food products including but not limited to meal replacement and energy bars, snack bars, fruit and vegetable based drinks, milk and creamer based beverages, sauces and seasonings, chocolates, teas, and coffee and coffee substitutes.
Not All Medicinal Mushrooms Products are Created Equal
U.S. lab-grown Cordyceps is mycelium grown on grain. Analysis has low levels of beta-glucan and very high levels of starch. Indivita only uses 100% organic fruiting bodies, rigorously tested and guaranteed for active compounds.
