Powerful Adaptogen Mushroom
Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that help the body resist stressors of all kinds, whether physical, chemical or biological. These herbs and roots have been administered for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions.
In the wild, cordyceps is rare. Historically it was reserved for the use of the emperor and royal family in ancient China and first recorded use in the 15th Century. The Cordyceps mushroom contains immunostimulating polysaccharides, amino acids, fatty acids, polyamines, and ecdysterone. Cordyceps are traditionally used to help the body handle stress, support healthy immune and vascular systems, sustain energy and has been used to help normalize sexual function.
