The most important things to know about our Cordyceps mushroom

As you may have heard, we are quite well known for development Cordyceps militaris. In fact, as of April 2019, AdaptogenShrooms is not only the largest, but also the first and only certified organic Cordyceps militaris fruiting farm in the western hemisphere. We’re really proud of this milestone — and all the learning and support from you that helped us get here. We love talking about the Cordyceps mushroom and passing on what we’ve learned about this fiery orange fungus.

This blog post is designed to be a one-stop shop for those interested in learning more about the amazing beauty of the Cordyceps mushroom. As we like to say, Cordyceps is a little orange mushroom with a deep history and a big, bright future.*

What is unique about our Cordyceps mushrooms

The mushroom in our Cordyceps extract is a species known as Cordyceps militaris. This item is both vegan and cruelty free. Here’s a look at some of what makes our Cordyceps mushrooms so great and why we love our Cordyceps extracts.

1. Fruitful bodies forever and ever!

Simply put, the fruiting bodies are the above-ground parts of a mushroom and the mycelium lives underground. It is cheaper and easier to grow mycelium in grains than it is in fruiting bodies, so many products use Cordyceps mycelium. At AdaptogenShrooms, our products use only 100% Cordyceps militaris fruiting bodies, never mycelium. You have our word — and we offer tests to prove it.

2. Certified organic Cordyceps mushrooms

Cordyceps mushroom supplements are not only certified organic, but they are also grown, extracted and sold in the USA. We are certified by Baystate Organic Certifiers, so we follow strict guidelines to maintain this certification.

3. Science, science and more science!

Cordyceps mushrooms contain different active ingredients and must be extracted for your body to access them. We always double the Cordyceps. Ours undergoes a double extraction of water, known as decoction, and alcohol, known as tincture. This is because the active parts of mushrooms are both alcohol and water soluble. To get full-spectrum support from the mushrooms, we extract our Cordyceps with 190-proof alcohol and hot water, then carefully combine them. We follow science and extract our Cordyceps (and all the mushrooms we use) at optimal alcohol percentages, temperatures and lengths.

4. The sky’s the limit when you’re vertically integrated.

From spores to final extracts, we are vertically integrated, so we control quality, purity and potency every step of the way. We grow our own Cordyceps, then export and sell to you.
