Cordyceps Extract 30% Organic
Cordyceps, the caterpillar killer
Cordyceps is a fungus and belongs to the genus Ophiocordyceps. The name Cordyceps comes from Ancient Greek and means club. And in Latin it means head. Cordyceps is a parasitic fungus. It grows on a host. The hosts of the cordyceps are the larvae and caterpillars of insects.
The Cordyceps is a traditionally used mushroom in China, which grows at an altitude of 3000 to 5000 metres in the mountain ranges of Tibet in humid environments. Cordyceps is quite rare in the wild. For centuries, the ancient Chinese collected the remains of cordyceps and its host, dried them and used them in traditional medicines. These were used to treat fatigue, nausea, kidney diseases and low libido.
The Cordyceps militaris from which this extract is made is grown on substrates. No live insects are used as hosts.
Two popular Cordyceps species
Of the 400 species of Cordyceps that have been discovered, two are popular because of their positive properties. These are the Cordyceps Militaris and the Cordyceps Sinensis. Both species are very similar, but there are important differences:
- First of all, the Cordyceps Sinensis is rare and can only be cultivated with difficulty. Cordyceps sinensis extract is therefore exclusive and expensive. Cordyceps Militaris, on the other hand, can be easily cultivated and is therefore cheaper and readily available.
- Cordyceps Militaris contains the substance Cordycepin. This substance has several health advantages:
- acts as an antifungal
- prevents cell aging
- has an antiviral effect
- supports your immune system
- stimulates your libido
Specific properties of Cordyceps

Cordyceps Extract vs Cordyceps Powder
The extract is a concentrated version of the powder. To maintain your health you can do fine with cordyceps powder. You use the more powerful cordyceps extract to bring certain things back to normal.
What does 30% extract mean?
30% is the minimum content of polysaccharides. The extraction ratio indicates how much powder is needed to reach this 30%. For Cordyceps, 8-10 kg of powder are needed to get 1 kg of extract with 30% polysaccharides.
Taste, use and dose of Cordyceps Extract
Cordyceps extract powder has a sweet bitter taste. It is similar to that of many mild mushrooms and has that sweet aftertaste of a ripe tomato or a fried onion.
Use cordyceps extract in your tea, yoghurt or smoothie.
- For normal use:
1 time daily half a teaspoon of cordyceps extract per serving.
