Lions Mane - Known for its neuroprotective properties and has also been shown to improve mild cognitive impairment. Estrogen is the master regulator for ensuring the brain works as it should. This mushroom protects both the brain and has anti-inflammatory properties.




Why is cordyceps great in helping women with the menopause?


Phytoestrogens are compounds that naturally occur in plants. “Phyto-” is a Greek root word meaning “plant.” Estrogen is a female hormone that regulates functions in both women and men. When we add in phytoestrogens, our bodies may respond as if our own estrogen were present. In a nutshell, phytoestrogens could serve as a type of natural hormone replacement therapy. This is especially the case with phytoestrogen supplements. Because they mimic your body’s own estrogen, phytoestrogens accomplish some of the same things.


Cordyceps mushroom is a medicinal mushroom native to Asia. This mushroom has over 400 different species, although it is two specific species that are known for their medicinal benefits. These species are called Cordyceps Sinensis and Cordyceps militaris, with each of them having specific health benefits.


Cordyceps is a fungus that grows out of the larval body of an insect at altitudes about 3800m to create a powerfully healing medicinal mushroom (though not technically a mushroom, most practitioners classify it under that heading). Mother Nature is truly incredible!


Cordyceps (both the sinensis and militaris strains) itself has been mentioned in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Tibetan healing textbooks for centuries, if not millennia.


Often used as an all over curative medicine due to claims that it improves energy, appetite, stamina, libido, endurance, and sleeping patterns, this study(1) found that traditional and folk healers used cordyceps mushroom to treat at least 21 different ailments.


Possible Benefits of Cordyceps


  • May Support Chronic Kidney Disease


Studies have shown that not only does cordyceps sinensis improve renal and immune function in those with chronic renal failure it may also help reduce the dosage of anti-rejection drugs in those undergoing kidney transplants. It also shows promise in the treatment and prevention of renal fibrosis.


  • May Improve Integrity of the Digestive Tract


Since roughly 70% of the immune system resides in and around the digestive tract, if it is constantly on high alert due to foreign proteins and toxins, it can have a huge impact on your energy, mental health, skin health, and hormone balance.


  • Could Boost energy levels


Both cordyceps militaris and sinensis have demonstrated promise in reducing physical fatigue, possibly by increasing your natural production of master antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione


  • May Help Balance Blood Sugar


There is a lot you can do nutritionally to support stable blood sugar and stay insulin sensitive. Cordyceps militaris and sinensis have both been shown to stimulate the release of insulin and down-regulate its metabolism to keep glucose levels stable


  • Possible Liver support


Cordyceps sinensis has some hepato-protective benefits to add to its impressive list of functions. This study found that it helped protect the liver from damage through mitochondrial support and the prevention of liver cell apoptosis


  • May Boost Exercise & Athletic Performance


One of the most promising is that it actually increases cellular ATP (a molecule that stores and supplies energy within the cell), while decreasing the production of lactic acid and other reactive oxygen species that cause muscle fatigue


  • Could Balance Immune function


Both the cordyceps militaris and sinensis strains were shown to improve immune function by protecting the body against oxidative stress(27) and to harmonize the balance and effect of the TH1 and TH2 immune systems respectively


  • Sexual function


It’s long been used to support sexual function and cure erectile dysfunction in China and Tibet. Animal studies on the same topic show promise in terms of its aphrodisiac, sexual function, and sperm production (amount and quality) properties.


This tincture is double extracted with purified water and alcohol(1:3.5 ratio), which means that it has gone through two processes of extraction to get the powerful compounds from the mushroom.
