Cordyceps helps to increase the oxygen intake ability of red blood cells so it is helpful to boost energy, stamnia, vitality, respiratory capacity, physical performance, and antioxidant activity. It is also supports a healthy libido and cholesterol level(s).
A large body of research as well as traditional use has demonstrated that Cordyceps militaris has similar active compounds and activities to Ophiocordyceps sinensis. Today, for the first time, C. militaris fruiting bodies, rather than mycelium, are available. Cordyceps is traditionally used for fatigue and improved respiratory function.
Like all medicinal mushrooms, Cordyceps is adaptogenic, meaning it can also improve the body’s stress response and promote recovery from stress.

Additional Benefits of Davina’s Mushrooms
- 100% Organic or Wildcrafted/Wild-harvested Mushrooms Extracts!
- 100% Mushroom fruiting bodies (not mycelium, the mushroom root system).
- Hot water extracted or Dual Extracted (Hot water + Alcohol). Still contains all non-water soluble components.
- Mushrooms require extraction to break down the indigestible chitin barrier to make their bioactive compounds bioavailable to our bodies.
- Hot water extracts still contain all of the mushroom fiber so nothing is lost in the extraction process and all of the non-water soluble components are still present even though it is a hot water extract.
- All non-water soluble components (like triterpenes) in the mushrooms are still included in the extract.
- 3rd Party verified for beta-glucans. This ensures potency and effectiveness.
- Beta-glucans are the most researched and main beneficial compound in mushrooms, yet very few companies measure them to show they are present.
- No Grain Fillers–Just mushrooms!
- Many ‘mushroom’ products on the market contain high levels of grain fillers–upwards of 70% starch. So you’re paying for grains, not mushrooms. Unlike myceliated grain alternatives, our products contain absolutely no grains or starch fillers.
- Unlike most companies, we actually list active compounds and ingredients in our mushroom extracts.
- Certified Kosher, Gluten-Free, Non-GMO, Vegan
- Pet Friendly. Healthy and safe for your pets too. Prescribed by many holistic veterinarians.
- A holistic vet who prescribes mushroom products recommends 1/8 tsp twice daily for small dogs. Scale the dosage up or down accordingly to your pet’s size. If they do not like the taste, break the servings into smaller doses more frequently over the day.
Consult a physician before use of this product for children, if you are pregnant or nursing, have a medical condition, and/or are taking prescription medications.
