Cordyceps: North America

To learn about our ingredients, follow us on a journey... to North America, for Cordyceps

"Cordyceps are a mushroom species from China that have been known to regulate the species of bacteria found within mammalian species. Since the dawn of the “fast food” age, it has been shown that the human gut microbiome has taken a turn for the worse. Beneficial bacteria that aid in digestion and immune function are starting to be replaced by harmful bacteria that can lead to indigestion, Chron’s disease, and contribute to weight gain. While we deal with the pressures of our daily lives, it may be hard for us to find time for a quality meal.

Cordyceps and cordycepin supplements have been shown to reverse the effects of these changes by increasing the abundance of Gammaproteobacteria and other beneficial species, and drastically reduce the number of harmful Clostridia and Bacilli species found within the gut. These changes ultimately led to increased weight loss and regulation, especially in obese subjects. Furthermore, cordyceps have been shown to decrease the effects of obesity on liver and kidney toxicity by altering signaling pathways that contribute to beneficial alteration of gut microbiota and reducing inflammation."
