Cordyceps – An Amazing Adaptogen

For centuries, Cordyceps was available only to the royal families of Asia. Wildcrafted from the most remote parts of the Himalayas, it was so rare that it sold for up to $35,000 per pound. Cordyceps enhances energy, vigor, stamina, and libido.


Cordyceps is a major adaptogen, meaning that it helps you deal with stress, tension, and fatigue. Herbalists believe that its nutrients promote the body’s natural balance and supports already healthy liver function, respiration, and inflammatory processes. For these reasons, holistic health systems say it promotes longevity.

Cordyceps Sinensis vs. Cordyceps Militaris

The Cordyceps that was wildcrafted in the ancient past was the species called “sinensis.” Because its rarity has raised concerns of it becoming an endangered species, it almost never finds its way into the United States. Today, some companies claim to have spores of the original species, but the products they make from it are mycelium grown on grain.


In recent years, Cordyceps militaris has taken center stage. The nutritional profiles of militaris and sinensis are similar enough that practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine consider them interchangeable. Militaris mushrooms are rich in both Beta-D-glucans and Cordycepin, a factor thought to be responsible for many of Cordyceps’ special benefits.

MyPure™ Cordyceps

Each capsule of MyPure™ Cordyceps provides 500 mg of our 1:1 extract of 100% non-GMO, certified organic Cordyceps militaris mushrooms, and provides more Cordyceps nutrition than two capsules of Cordyceps mycelia grown on grain. The mushrooms are hot water treated to break down the cell walls and maximize nutrient bioavailability. We know of no finer Cordyceps product.*

MUSHROOMS VS MYCELIUM

For thousands of years, mushrooms have been used by the world’s great holistic traditions for their health benefits. Today, countless Americans use them as supplements. However, most “mushroom” products are not mushrooms at all. They are mycelia. 


Mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of fungi that grow up through the ground. Mycelia are root-like structures that grow underground. Because mycelia that grows in the wild are too fragile to harvest, those in supplements are grown in plastic bags on rice or other grains. As they mature, they become part of the grain. Because they cannot later be separated, what ends up in your capsule is over 50% grain.


Mushroom benefits stem from mushroom nutrition, and mushroom fruiting bodies provide more of it than grain grown mycelia. The fruiting bodies provide:

ü More vitamins & minerals  

ü  More ergothioneines

ü  More di- & triterpenes

ü  Over 20 times more immune enhancing Beta-(1,3) (1,6)-D-Glucans. 


To get the real mushroom nutrition you want, make sure your label reads, “100% Mushroom Fruiting Bodies” and is standardized to 20% to 40% beta-glucans

Great supplements start with quality ingredients. At Pure Essence, we certify the purity, potency and integrity of all of our ingredients.

Is MyPure™ Cordyceps/MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X safe to take if you have kidney stones?

Some mushrooms, like those in our MyPure™ formulas, do contain trace amounts of oxalates and salicylates, which are known to cause kidney stones. However, this amount is very minimal – ½ mg per one capsule.


The typical dietary intake of oxalates is from 200 to 300 mg per day and comes mostly from beans, green leafy vegetables, coffee, etc. Those at risk for kidney stones are advised to keep daily oxalate intake at no more than 100 mg. Given these recommendations, the oxalates in MyPure™ mushroom formulas are insignificant.*


Dietary salicylates come mostly from fruits, vegetables, coffee, and spices, but are also found in meats, fish, and fowl. Like oxalates, they’re present in all healthy foods. Typical American diets provide from 10 to 200 mg of daily salicylates. Those with salicylate sensitivity (a very rare issue) should keep salicylates in the lower range. Fresh mushrooms contain about .1 to .25 mg of salicylates per 100 grams. Each capsule of MyPure™ Cordyceps/Cordyceps 4x would be expected to contain about 1/20th that amount. In other words, it would take from 800 to 1600 capsules to get to 10 mg of total salicylates.*


MyPure™ mushroom formulas are not a significant source of oxalates or salicylates. However, if you have specific issues with these dietary factors, you should consult your health care professional before using any product that might contain them.*

How do you determine the total mg amount of mushrooms in MyPure™ Cordyceps/MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X?

The basics of mushroom extraction are simple. Unnecessary factors are removed to concentrate mushroom nutrition into a smaller space. In a 1:1 extract, only water is removed. Since mushrooms are over 90% water, a 1:1 extract is about 10 times more concentrated than a fresh mushroom. In other words, a 500 mg capsule represents about 5000 mg of fresh mushroom nutrition.


Stronger extracts delete other factors, like indigestible fibers. These factors may constitute up to 90% of mushroom powder after water is removed and increase the concentration by another factor of 10. This would mean that a 500 mg capsule could contain as much nutrition as 50,000 mg of fresh mushrooms.

Extracts are expressed as ratios to give a basic concept of how much fresh food nutrition the extract contains. To determine the fresh mushroom nutrition equivalent found in MyPure™ Cordyceps or MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X, first, multiply the first number of the ratio by 10 (to represent the removal of water). Then multiply that number by the amount of the extract that is present in the capsule.


Example:

1. MyPure™ Cordyceps contains 500 mg of cordyceps 1:1 extract.

Step one – multiply the first number of the extract ratio by 10.

1 x 10 = 10

Step two – multiply the amounts of each extract present by the numbers derived from step one.

500 mg x 10 = 5,000 mg


2. MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X contains 300 mg of cordyceps 1:1 extract and 200 mg of cordyceps 10:1 extract.

Step one – multiply the first number of the extract ratio by 10.

1 x 10 = 10 and 10 x 10 = 100

Step two – multiply the amounts of each extract present by the numbers derived from step one.

(300 mg x 10 = 3,000 mg) + (200 mg x 100 = 20,000 mg) = 23,000 mg

The labels of our products do not list these numbers because they can be confusing. However, these are the real approximations of fresh mushroom nutrition represented in each capsule.

Should MyPure™ Cordyceps/MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X be taken in the morning or at night?

MyPure™ Cordyceps/MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X can be taken at any time of the day. Cordyceps isn't a stimulant but is an adaptogen that helps to maintain constant energy levels. For that reason, you might want to consider taking it earlier in the day.

Where do the cordyceps in MyPure™ Cordyceps/MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X come from?

The cordyceps used in MyPure™ Cordyceps/MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X are sourced from China. China, in fact, is the only practical source of real, certified organic, non-GMO mushroom fruiting bodies. Cordyceps grown in the United States for use in supplements are not fruiting bodies but mycelia grown on grain.


While mushroom fruiting bodies are the parts of fungal organisms that grow above ground, mycelia are the filament-like root structure that grows beneath. The mycelium used by major American supplement manufacturers is grown in factories in plastic bags on rice, corn, rye, or other grain. As the mycelium grows, it becomes one with the grain. The result is a product that is up to 60% grain. Studies show that mushroom fruiting bodies have up to 20 times more immune factors than mycelia grown on grain.


In case you’re concerned about the mushroom quality because they come from China, every batch is tested for pesticides, heavy metals, potency, purity, etc. There are no finer mushrooms on the planet.

What are the cordyceps mushrooms in MyPure™ Cordyceps/MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X grown on?

The cordyceps mushrooms we use in MyPure™ Cordyceps/MyPure™ Cordyceps 4X are grown on rice or barley – not on silkworms.
