Regular price R 185.00
Cordyceps liquid dual-extract (30% alcohol).
- Cordyceps (Ophiocordyceps militaris)* dual-extract
- Non-chlorinated water
- Food-grade, Organic ethanol (Karoo Agave spirit, Leonisa Blanco)
This liquid extract is created by first soaking locally-grown cordyceps mushrooms and myceliated brown rice in 43% alcohol for a minimum of four weeks. The cordyceps pieces are then removed from the alcohol and gently simmered in non-chlorinated water for 2-4 hours. Finally, the tincture and hot-water extractions are filtered and combined to create a potent elixir of bioavailable compounds with a total alcohol content of 30%.
A single 50 ml bottle of dual-extract should last approximately 50 days, with a daily dosage of 20 drops. We recommend dropping your dosage into warm water to evaporate the alcohol before drinking for those who may have alcohol sensitivities.
Cordyceps is known as the most expensive fungus on the market today. The wild-harvested cousin of C. militaris, Ophiocordyceps Sinensis, is found in the Himalayan mountain foothills and fetches over $20 000 per kilogram.
Luckily for us, commercial strains of Cordyceps militaris have been bred and developed to be cultivated commercially on various grains under certain conditions that allow for it to be available at a lower price and be produced with higher levels of Cordycepin and adenosine. These two compounds are part of what makes Cordyceps so interesting, especially for athletes and people looking to overcome low libido, low energy and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Scientific studies have shown Cordyceps improve endurance and energy levels by increasing ATP synthesis and oxygen utilisation, helping athletes perform better at explosive strength and endurance-based sports.
Cordyceps is also used as an aphrodisiac for both men and women and has increased libido and fertility.
We use Cordyceps for long-lasting, sustained, adaptogenic energy that promotes a healthy immune response, endocrine function, and improved endurance. This mushroom is also used as a natural anti-inflammatory and liver tonic. We recommend taking this mushroom before exercise, surfing, hiking or any physical activity.
Other benefits include immuno-modulating effects, improves circulation, cardiovascular health and cognitive performance.
When to take Cordyceps?
The short answer and personal preference is every day and as often as possible! Before exercise, training and any physical activity is a great time to consume Cordyceps. That being said, we can all benefit from sustained, adaptogenic energy in our work and everyday life. Imagine all we can do with seemingly limitless energy and faster recovery between sets, sessions and (life)cycles?
