Cordyceps: From Michelin Star Restaurants to Your Cupboard

One of the most obvious, yet mysteriously effective additions to your dietary routine ought to be the Cordyceps mushroom. It has been a family dinner staple for thousands of years - even travelled far into Michelin Star level restaurants specialising in oriental cuisine. At Forest Mana, we pick Cordyceps as an essential source of your daily nutrients for a healthy lifestyle for other reasons as well. These have something to do with its prestigious status in Eastern medicine, as well as the newly released scientific headlines which state the addition of a light-on-the-body all-in-one solution to prep our bodies for what is now and what is to come - the continuous public health challenge by a widespread infectious presence. Let’s chat about what Cordyceps mushroom extract powder by Forest Mana can do for you!


Cordyceps Mushroom Extract Powder will improve your physical performance 

If you’re a powerlifter or a high endurance athlete, a study done in 2017 suggests that using Cordyceps militaris as a supplement may improve tolerance to high intensity exercise, and greater benefits may be elicited with consistent chronic supplementation (1).
If you’re an office professional, looking to take the edge off when it comes to managing your energy levels for an after-work workout - Cordyceps fits perfectly in your routine, as well as in your sports bag. 

Cordyceps Mushroom Extract Powder May reduce Physical Fatigue

Speaking of office and fatigue from work, another study suggested another angle on the effect of Cordyceps on physical fatigue in mammals(2).

The study suggests that prolonged use of Cordyceps mushroom extract powder may:

  • Prolong the exhaustive swimming time of mice;
  • Decrease concentrations of serum lactic acid, urea nitrogen, creatine kinase,

aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, and malondialdehyde;

  • Increase liver and muscle glycogen contents;
  • In addition, increase the concentrations of serum superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase, as well as catalase.

The study done on mammals suggested that Cordyceps mushroom extract powder may also have an effect against fatigue (3).


As a ground-breaking addition, another study in elderly people suggested that after taking Cordyceps sinensis for 6 weeks, VO2-max was significantly increased. 

Anti-Aging? Yes please, Cordyceps!

Cordyceps has long been held as an anti-aging traditional Asian mushroom; nowscience has settled on a positive answer to that. The study which confirmed the belief was performed on mammals to demonstrate that Cordyceps has prolonged the live of animals significantly when compared to control groups (4).

Another second study done on animals demonstrated that Cordyceps may improve the brain function and antioxidative enzyme activity in mice with d-galactose-induced senescence and promote sexual function in mammals (5).

Another study found that Cordyceps oral liquid prolongs the lifespan of insects by inhibiting oxidative stress. Therefore, Cordyceps mushroom extract powder - the concentrated substance form, may be explored as a new cutting edge supplement to slow the human aging processes (6).
