Cordyceps Militaris Whole Fruiting Body Medicinal Mushroom Extract 500mg Capsules

  • Product Description

    What Are Cordyceps Militaris Mushroom Capsules?

    Cordyceps militaris is a species of mushroom in the family Clavicipitaceae which has been used in traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicine for centuries. These interesting parasitic fungi usually use insects and arthropods as hosts. As their mycelium grows, it takes over the host’s tissues and long club-like fruiting bodies eventually emerge individually or in cluster form. Cordyceps Militaris is just one species in the family, but is well-known for its aggressive takeover of its host as well as for its purported health benefits.

    Cordyceps Militaris historically has been used as an aphrodisiac, and was first documented in a 15th-century Tibetan text. However, Cordyceps militaris Mushroom Capsules today are used for a variety of health issues.


    Cordyceps Militaris Mushroom Extract Benefits

    Cordyceps militaris Mushroom Extract uses extend well beyond its reputation as a libido booster. Research shows that Cordyceps militaris Mushroom Capsules can be taken to aid in the following areas of health:

    • Combat free radicals and associated cell damage, aging, and death via antioxidants
    • Fight inflammation
    • Combat cancer and abnormal cell proliferation, tumor growth, and metastasis
    • Boost immunity
    • Fight invaders like microbes, viruses, bacteria, and more
    • Aid in reducing fibrosis
    • Fight fatigue
    • Can inhibit human organ transplant rejection


    Cordyceps militaris Mushroom Capsules contain compounds including cordycepin, which are metabolized and then affect various physiological processes as listed above. Most active chemical constituents of the mushroom are found in the fruiting body portion.

    Nootropics Depot and Nammex Provide Organic Cordyceps Whole Fruiting Bodies

    Since most of the active compounds can be found in the fruiting body versus the mycelium, which is more akin to the roots of a tree, it is important to buy Cordyceps militaris Mushroom Extract from a supplier that uses high-quality manufacturing processes.

    Many brands, including some of the most popular, trusted ones, use practices that ultimately deliver an ineffective product. To save money and speed up the process, manufacturers will often grow the Cordyceps militaris Mushroom mycelium on a bed of grain, and then grind the two together and package it before the fruiting body has a chance to develop. That means consumers are missing out on most of the active compounds.

    Nootropics Depot and Nammex provide only organic whole fruiting bodies with low starch content, no pesticides, and the correct percentage of beta-glucans. This not only follows FDA guidelines but ensures our customers receive an effective nootropic compound.


    Beta-Glugan (β-Glucan) content: 30%

    1. I notice it helping me in the gym.

      I'm convinced that it helps when I'm doing exercise. I have also noticed an increase in confidence and sociability. In my experience, it is similar to Ashwagandha, but without the excessive calm and indifference I sometimes experience with the latter.

      Very recommended indeed. Specially if you are dealing with physical fatigue. Its benefits at this particular regard are well documented:

      "Two week CM administration significantly delayed fatigue phenomenon which is confirmed via rotating rod test, forced swimming test and forced running test. Compared to nontreated mouse, CM administration increased ATP levels and antioxidative enzymes activity and reduced the levels of lactic acid, lactic dehydrogenase, malondialdehyde, and reactive oxygen species. Further data suggests that CM-induced fatigue recovery is mainly through activating 5′-AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and protein kinase B (AKT)/mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathways and regulating serum hormone level. Moreover, CM-enhanced the phosphorylation of AMPK contributes to its antioxidant effect. Our data provides experimental evidence in supporting clinical use of CM as an effective agent against fatigue."

    2. Great for energy, mood, and motivation

      This is probably the most effective thing I've tried so far in my nootropics research. I didn't expect these non-lab created natural substances to be so effective, but they are. I hate inconvenience/I'm lazy so these capsules are the best choice for me.

      I get great energy and motivation when I take these. It combines very well with the GS-15-4 ginseng extract to really get productive. My usual problem is getting focused and motivated to start working on things--these really help with it. Seems to give a slight uplift to mood as well. I usually run in the morning and taking the Cordyceps/Ginseng combo amps my energy level up during exercise.

      Some other things I've tried with Cordyceps:
      Teacrine - A bit too intensely stimulating with a full dose of Cordyceps, half dose is fine
      Phenylpiracetam - Stimulating but gave me anxiety

    3. Just WOW

      I was blown away a how effective these capsules were. I take one when I wake up, and I am stimulated, focused, and in a good mood all day. I never knew mushrooms could be so effective. This is going to be a staple for me for a long time. If you are curious, try this! You will not be disappointed. on 20th Oct 2016
