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 sometimes used for a variety of health issues.

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.
