The magical medicinal mushroom
A Short History of Cordyceps Use
Legend has it that the benefits of Cordyceps were known for more than 1,000 years, and were the best-kept secret of the Chinese emperors for generations. The inhabitants of ancient China traditionally consumed Cordyceps mushrooms by making them into tea and drinking them.
Cordyceps gained world attention in the early 1990’s when Chinese Olympic athletes broke world records, and their coach attributed their success to a diet containing Cordyceps. The western world was curious to learn all about their dietary habits, and the benefits of consuming Cordyceps were revealed.
In many studies, Cordyceps consumption has been shown to aid physical and mental health issues and significantly improve physical sensation and well-being. The global demand for the mushroom has increased ever since, and Cordyceps has been used in various medical indications.
Mycospring’s Cordyceps – Refining Nature
We have been proudly growing and researching Cordyceps mushrooms for more than 15 years. In our mushroom cultivation facility, we incorporate traditional knowledge from the ancient Far East along with innovative technology and have been joined by research fellows from the world’s top research institutes.
At Mycospring, we strictly adhere to chemical-free growth processes. We have developed an exclusive technique for growing Cordyceps in controlled environmental conditions that allow us to maximize the mushroom’s inherent virtues and enhance its qualities without harming any animals, not even insects!
To achieve and maintain the high quality of our products, we perform tests for microbial and chemical contaminants and quality control procedures during the entire production process of the Cordyceps mushroom. As opposed to its natural environment, where Cordyceps may absorb environmental toxins because of the uncontrolled decomposition of substances, we produce our mushrooms in environmentally controlled facilities to minimize contaminants and ensure that each one of our products contains the highest extraction of bioactive compounds and nutrients.
Main benefits of Cordyceps Mushroom
Increases physical activity performance
Cordyceps mushrooms increases the production of the molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is essential for supplying energy to our muscles. As a result, it improves the oxygen we consume during physical activity and improves performance indicators among adults and young people.
According to research, its antioxidant content may explain its anti-aging potential. Antioxidants are molecules that fight the damage caused to skin cells and neutralize free radicals, which inhibit skin aging.
