Cordyceps Mushroom Powder by Daiba Fungi


What is cordyceps?

Cordyceps is a kind of fungi found all over the world. Some of the rarest kinds are at higher altitudes in the Himalayan regions of China, Nepal, Tibet and India. In total, there have been more than 750 species of cordyceps identified. Of those, scientists have identified at least 35 kinds that have had some potential health benefits and medicinal properties.

What makes cordyceps particularly interesting is that they’re parasitic in nature. Each species of cordyceps targets a specific, unique insect. For example, one species of cordyceps can infect a specific type of carpenter ant. But that same species of cordyceps doesn’t have any effect on other kinds of ants even across regions. Other insects that have been targeted by cordyceps include spiders, moths, and dragonflies.

Here’s how it works: A cordyceps spore lands on and infects its host. It then starts to spread mycelia (or tendrils) throughout the insect’s body. Those tendrils replace the host’s internal tissues and feed off its nutrients. Once the insect is fully paralyzed or dead, the cordyceps fungus erupts out of the insect’s body with a fruiting body (the visible reproductive structure of cordyceps). This fruiting body then spreads its spores to other insects of the same species.



There are plenty of products that use cordyceps. These products include supplements in the form of capsules, powders, teas and even mushroom coffee. 



Benefits of Cordyceps


So, why throw cordyceps in your soup in the first place? A few studies have pointed to some potential health benefits to eating certain kinds of cordyceps, specifically C. sinensis or C. militaris. 



Anti-inflammatory properties

A review of several research studies suggests cordyceps contain a bioactive component called cordycepin. This can help with inflammation related to asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, hepatitis and more. In fact, cordycepin has been identified as a potential nutraceutical (a food that contains medicinal benefit). Lab studies suggest cordycepin and cordyceps polysaccharide can have additional positive effects on obesity (a condition often associated with chronic low-grade inflammation).


Increase exercise performance

Reduced inflammation may also help boost exercise performance.

When you’re exercising, you’re causing inflammation throughout your body, by decreasing that, you’re going to perform much better.

One study followed 28 individuals who participated in high-intensity exercise over the course of three weeks while consuming a mushroom blend that contained cordyceps. That study showed significant improvement in VO2 max (a measurement of how much oxygen your body absorbs and uses while working out).


Anti-aging properties

Cordyceps have long been used in traditional Chinese medicine among older populations to provide energy, reduce fatigue and boost libido and sex drive. In fact, it’s been referred to as “Himalayan Viagra” because of these effects. It has traditionally been used alongside ginseng and Rhodiola rosea to help reduce fatigue. Scientists believe this is because cordycepin may help regulate energy metabolism.


Regulate Blood Sugar

When it comes to anti-diabetic properties, Cordyceps seems to have high potential. Lab studies suggest cordyceps could reduce blood sugar and improve insulin resistance. It may even help with dyslipidemia (elevated cholesterol or fats in the blood).

To date, there have been no significant clinical trials that have studied the relationship between cordyceps and blood sugar in people. It’s important that you don’t take these small lab studies as medical advice. Instead, you should talk to your healthcare provider about alternative ways to lower your blood sugar.
