Cordyceps Supplement – A Vegan Choice for Energy Support*

Take Cordyceps to support your to-do list*

The benefits of the Cordyceps mushroom have received more attention here in the fast-paced Western world in recent years.* Cordyceps has been found to potentially support energy and immune function.* This strange mushroom often gets a lot of attention when people learn that: in nature, is found growing outside the body of different insects. One of the questions we often get about our Cordyceps for mushroom regeneration is if we grow the mushroom on insects.

Short answer: no, we do not grow our Cordyceps mushroom on insects. We grow it in an organic, vegan substrate consisting of rice and other nutrients.

A unique mushroom genus: Cordyceps in the Wild

Cordyceps is a striking orange mushroom that snakes its way up under the brush of leaves or moss. Below ground, Cordyceps fruits outside the body of an insect. Cordyceps colonizes an insect’s body, slowly conquering its nervous system and spreading its mycelium throughout its interior until one fateful day when it is ready to fruit its mushroom and spread its spores to other intolerant insects. Curiously, it appears that some species of Cordyceps are specialized to infect certain species of insects, too.

Cordyceps has been used for over 1,000 years in China, where it is a national treasure and tonic.* Ancient stories tell of a strange mushroom growing in the Himalayan mountains that seemed to support energy and sexual vigor in animals.* Curious about what it was making their animals so lively, people discovered the mysterious Cordyceps mushroom.

There are over 680 documented species of Cordyceps. In Asia, the main species of Cordyceps used is Cordyceps sinensis. In North America, a common species of Cordyceps is Cordyceps militarisand that’s what we grow here at AdaptogenShrooms.​
