Cordyceps is a well known and extensively studied adaptogen. Adaptogens are plants that help us adapt to high stress and counter many of the health consequences of being under stress. Traditional Chinese medicine has favored adaptogenic materials as part of a number of “key tonics” and many of these include Cordyceps. Alone it may support energy, immune and respiratory function, strength, endurance and recovery.*
MRM’s Cordyceps 750mg contains the natural CS-4 strain that most closely matches the Cordyceps Sinensis, which is highly regarded and grows atop the high plateaus of Tibet. Many call it the caterpillar fungus because it grows out of the body of caterpillars in the high mountain regions of China. MRM uses only a premium vegan Cordyceps extract that has been standardized for the active compounds Cordyceptic Acid and Adenosine. Our cordyceps is grown using modern controlled culturing techniques to ensure potency and consistency in every bottle.
Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis) originally comes from the high elevation regions of China. This “Chinese Caterpillar” fungus has been used as an adaptogen in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Its use in the west has been primarily confined to energy production dynamics with applications in athletic performance enhancement and overall health.* Research supports that cordyceps sinensis may improve exercise performance and contribute to wellness in healthy adults.*The active components of cordyceps are still being studied, but current research indicates the adenosine, unique polysaccharides, amino acids, and a unique compound cordyceptic acid, are responsible for its therapeutic potential.
The CS-4 strain is the most researched strain. Cordyceps has been shown to increase glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase, two enzymes that act as antioxidants in the human body that can protect against oxidative stress.* Research in the areas of immune function are promising as it shows possibility of offering immune support in specific times of need.*
