Cordyceps Mushroom Extract
Cordyceps is a genus of fungi with a long history of use in traditional medicinal systems for a wide range of benefits and has become popular as a supplement for healthy aging, athletic performance support, and cardiovascular support.
Our Cordyceps supplement is an extract standardized to 7% polysaccharides and is prepared from the entire fruiting body and mycellium of the Cordyceps Mushroom.
While Cordyceps is safe at doses over 2000 mg, and sometimes people take doses of up to 3000 mg, side effects are more likely at high doses so we do not recommend taking more than 4 capsules per day.
• Cordyceps can cause increased symptoms in people suffering from autoimmune diseases.
• Cordyceps can slow blood clotting, and thus should be avoided by people with bleeding disorders.
• Cordyceps can increase the risk of bleeding during surgery, so should not be taken for 2 weeks before a surgery.
Cordyceps has numerous interactions with prescription drugs, and while none of these are severe or serious interactions if you are taking any prescription drugs we recommend talking to your physician about potential interactions before taking Cordyceps.
