Things You Should Know

Meet the mushroom

To date 700 species of cordyceps have been identified worldwide, in most cases growing parasitically on insect (moth) hosts. The main species Ophiocordyceps sinensis used in traditional medicine comes from a high Tibetan plateau above 3000m, but the other predominant species used throughout the West is Cordyceps militaris, which is what Mushrooms4Life uses for this latte mix. Cordyceps militaris mainly grows in deciduous and mixed forests, and although the fungus is not edible, it is highly sought after for traditional medicine purposes.

As well as polysaccharides and long-chain fatty acids common to many of the medicinal mushrooms, cordyceps contains a special nucleoside-type compound called cordycepin, which has antiviral potential in research and clinical studies. It is similar to another nucleoside called adenosine, which plays a central role in energy metabolism and hormone production, actions also associated with cordyceps.

Traditional uses

Used throughout ancient China and Tibet, cordyceps is valued as a medicine for enhancing vigor and vitality, and for promoting healthy longevity. Traditional healers in Sikkim, a state in northeast India, used cordyceps sinensis as a tonic to improve energy, appetite, stamina, libido, endurance, and healthy sleep patterns.

Both Eastern and Western research studies have attested to cordyceps’ ability to promote exercise endurance and physical performance, with improved cellular energy metabolism. Most studies have concentrated on the use of water-soluble, fermented and ethanolic extracts. 

Did you know? Local sheep and goat herders in northeast India found that the herds which grazed on cordyceps became unusually strong and stout. They also fed cordyceps to the cattle to improve their milk supply!

How To Use IT

Our Organic Cordyceps Beetroot Latte is blended with 100% organic ingredients including cacao powder and beetroot juice for a rich flavour and antioxidant boost. Beetroot is a great source of fibre, folate, minerals such as potassium and manganese, iron and vitamin C.

It also contains coconut milk, with important medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) to support focus and cognition, balance blood sugar and provide that classic latte satisfaction.

Adults: 1-3 servings (1 level tblsp.) per day.

Add one heaped tablespoon to a little hot water or milk of your choice to make a paste, then stir in hot water or milk.

As an adaptogen that helps to support a healthy stress response, cordyceps can be used for extra energy and balance during periods of physical and emotional challenge.
