What Is Cordyceps Mushroom Extract?

Cordyceps fungus belongs to the Clavicipitaceae family and many Cordyceps mushroom species are used in traditional Tibetan and Chinese medicine. Cordyceps militaris is one of the more studied and utilized Cordyceps fungus species. Cordyceps militaris and other related Cordyceps fungus species are classified as endoparasitoid fungi, which means they are basically parasites. However, Cordyceps militaris, the species used for our Cordyceps mushroom extracts, does not need a host to grow and is able to grow on a substrate. In fact, Cordyceps militaris also contains much more Cordycepin than Cordyceps sinensis and other types of Cordyceps fungus, making it the preferred Cordyceps species for a Cordyceps supplement!

Cordyceps militaris mushrooms have a fruiting body that is elongated and finger-like. They can appear individually or they can grow as a cluster. The name ‘Cordyceps’ is derived from the Greek word “kordyle”, which means ‘club’. The Latin stem “ceps” loosely translates to “head”, which describes the Cordyceps fruiting body’s club-like appearance. Some of the first written records of Cordyceps mushroom benefits were from 15th century Tibetan medical texts, where Cordyceps mushrooms were used to enhance many aspects of health, and allowing better adaptation to high altitudes. At the time, Cordyceps mushroom was referred to as Yartsa gunbu, it was later named to Cordyceps sinensis. This species is currently referred to as OphioCordyceps sinensis. Now that we have access to modern research, many of the ancient Tibetan uses, are now being verified by science and many other Cordyceps extract uses have been discovered through modern research too.

Evidence shows that Cordyceps mushroom benefits extend to many areas of health. These areas of health include immune system health, cellular health, cardiovascular health and cognitive health. These Cordyceps benefits can be traced to one of the main bioactives in Cordyceps militaris, a unique compound called cordycepin. Cordyceps militaris in particular, contains a particularly high concentration of cordycepin in comparison to other Cordyceps species. So what Cordyceps health benefits does Cordycepin produce?

What is 10:1 Cordyceps Extract?

It’s a common misconception that a 10:1 extract means ten times more potent than 1:1 extracts. However, 10:1 does not mean that the extract is exactly ten times stronger than the 1:1, but that the Cordyceps 10:1 mushroom extract tends to demonstrate more cognitive benefits than other Cordyceps health benefits. It’s important to note that the 10:1 ratio only indicates how much raw material is used to make one unit of the final extract. The 10:1 really means that 10 pounds of raw Cordyceps mushroom is processed to make 1 pound of 10:1 Cordyceps powder extract.

Our 10:1 extract is a dual water/ethanol extract, which concentrates both water and ethanol soluble compounds. First, Cordyceps mushroom is treated with hot water to break down the chitin. Breaking down the chitin allows the water soluble compounds to be better absorbed. Then ethanol is used to extract the ethanol soluble compounds. Since most of the Cordyceps militaris extract is comprised of the ethanol soluble compounds, the 10:1 Cordyceps militaris extract carries higher concentrations of ethanol soluble compounds and lower concentrations of water soluble compounds. The primary ethanol soluble compound in Cordyceps militaris is cordycepin. Cordycepin is said to be responsible for the energizing and cognition enhancing Cordyceps benefits, making the Cordyceps 10:1 extract exceptionally energizing!

Additionally, Nootropics Depot’s 10:1 Cordyceps militaris extract has a higher cordycepin content than the 1:1 since It is a dual water/ethanol extract. Some of the insoluble compounds such as beta-glucans are discarded in this process which leads to changes in the effect profile. This is due to cordycepin being more ethanol soluble, and beta-glucans being more water soluble. Since none of the material is lost in the 1:1, you get the most beta glucans, however, the cordycepin content is less concentrated. The Nootropics Depot 10:1 Cordyceps extract concentrates more of the ethanol-soluble compounds like cordycepin, resulting in more energy and endurance promoting as well as cognition and mood supporting effects. However, the beta glucan content is lower in the end product as a result.

    I love this product. I prefer it to the other cordyceps ND offers. I get great energy and endurance from it without the edginess I can sometimes get from the other capsules. This is a staple in my regimen.

    I had high hopes for these but...

    I had high hopes for these Cordyceps capsules, especially due to the fascinating nature of the Cordyceps themselves. I gave 3 stars because I didn't notice any bad effects from taking these, but unfortunately I really just didn't notice any effects at all. Of course please keep in mind that each person has different reactions and tolerances to things. just because these didn't have any effect for me doesn't mean they won't for you.

    Still testing, so far so good

    I'm about a month into it, and I'd like to have a few more months on and off to do a real review but at this point I do notice an increase in workout endurance, and an increase in the physical response that arises from lusty thoughts or seeing someone very attractive. Neither are mind blowing or overpowering but it is noticeable and I approve. I find for workout strength/endurance I notice more from Maca, but everybody's body is different and I bet they'd make a very very nice stack together. Product came fast as always, and after much research this product does seem to actually live up to what one would hope from a cordyceps supplement, while many others seem to be pretty bunk.
