Used in traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicine, Cordyceps Sinensis has recently been discovered in the west for its reported benefits in both health and energy. This medicinal mushroom powder (Bionectria ochroleuca, a fungal isolate from C. sinensis) is cultivated in pristine conditions from spores hand-collected in Nepal. It is an incredible daily anti-inflammatory immune booster and performance-enhancer (with reputed aphrodisiac qualities), currently undergoing extensive research in Asia for a wide range of potential benefits including:
- Energizing, anti-fatigue effects*
- Immune-boosting, cleansing*
- Relaxation of lung and vascular tissue*
- Cholesterol balancing*
- Testosterone enhancing*
- Blood sugar balancing*
- premium quality medicinal mushroom supplement
- whole food medicinal mushroom (no chemical isolates)
- extremely consistent nutritional profile for reliable dosage
- produced by source with decades of expertise
- tested for optimal genetics & absolute purity
- made exclusively from mycelial biomass (for increased bioactive profile)
- dried and processed BELOW 120F for maximum vitality
A 100% aseptic environment is crucial to the cultivation of pure, healthy mushrooms, so the growing chambers and the rice are sterilized at 250 F.
Then the growing medium is inoculated with pure mushroom spawns. This is one of the most crucial steps in creating a high quality final product. Our mushroom spawns are continually lab-tested and carefully nurtured and selected in order to ensure a vigorous and beneficial strain.
Once the spawn have germinated, the mycelial biomass is harvested and dehydrated BELOW 120 F (to protect beneficial compounds from heat and oxidation) then pulverized into a homogenous powder.
Finally, samples undergo rigorous microbial testing before being packaged and shipped to our warehouse for delivery to you!
IS IT CORDYCEPS SINENSIS?
The vast majority of "cordyceps" sold on the international market is, at best, of questionable origin and, at worst, of questionable efficacy and toxicity.
30 years ago, our source traveled to the highlands of Nepal to personally gather fresh cordyceps sinensis to cultivate for the American market. From their samples, they were able to isolate spores (free of microbes and toxins normally found in wild samples of cordyceps) and they began to grow this pure strain in their pristine organic and kosher certified facility.
Over the decades, this very high quality strain has been used by countless big supplement companies, boutique herb suppliers, herbalists, accupuncturists and traditional Chinese medical doctors, who have all reported this exceptional product to have incredibly powerful anti-inflammatory effects.
Recently, due to rampant uncertainty in the international cordyceps supply chain, high-end cultivators began using ribosomal DNA testing to ensure the accuracy of their spores. Our supplier discovered that their decades-old cordyceps strain was not identical to the genetic standard used to define cordyceps sinensis.
In its traditional environment, Cordyceps sinensis exist in a fungal community comprised of more than 500 species of different fungi. Western attempts to domesticate cordyceps spores have led to many different branches in the cordyceps family tree (rather than the blend found in the wild).
Our source discovered that their cultivated variety was Bionectria ochroleuca, a variety that lives in harmony with cordyceps, whose medical potential has recently begun to interest the research community. When they gave the option to their customers to switch to a validated strain of cordyceps, many said they preferred the existing strain and wished to continue using it. Thus, "Cordy-Gen®" was born as the trademark for this specific strain of fungal isolate from Cordyceps sinensis.
The complete description of this product is "mycelial biomass powder from cultured Bionectria ochroleuca, isolated from the fruiting bodies of Cordyceps sinensis collected in the Nepalese Himalayas" or for short "Bionectria ochroleuca, a fungal isolate from C. sinensis."
