Cordyceps is an adaptogen, not a stimulant, so it helps you produce and maintain constant energy levels. Coffee, for example, can give you an energy spike, followed by a crash; cordyceps, on the other hand, helps your body produce its own long-lasting energy. A compound in cordyceps called cordycepin is an adenosine analogue that increases the rate at which ADP (adenosine diphosphate) transforms into ATP (adenosine triphosphate). This matters because ATPs are tiny "molecular batteries" our bodies use to store and transport energy; more ATPs means more energy … and cordyceps has been shown to increase ATP levels by up to 50 percent!
Cordyceps is also able to increase your maximum oxygen intake (VO2 max). This is also why many asthma patients and people who have quit smoking have gotten really good results with it. Increased breathing capacity helps with all the daily tasks as well. Cordyceps is believed to be the remedy for fatigue, which is why it has also been used to recover from severe illness or surgery. Thus, it is the perfect nutrition for people whose energy levels have been down for a long period of time. Athletes also see great results in recovering from hard workouts.

The main ingredient in our Cordyceps elixir is, of course, pure cordyceps mushroom! 1500 mg of the most potent cordyceps CS-4 extract with at least 40% polysaccharides (15%+ beta-glucans) and 15% cordycepic acid. No starch, sugars or any fillers at all.
To make sure that you are able to get the most out of the mushroom we dual extracted it for you. This means that all of the active water- and fat-soluble components have been made bioavailable with boiling water and alcohol, respectively. After removing the alcohol and concentrating the extract we spray-dry it back to powder.
We use the cultivated Cs-4 strain of cordyceps which is the form that most of the studies have been made with. The mycelium is cultivated by liquid fermentation in an optimal nutrient solution that contains amino acids and sugars for it to feed on. We don’t use caterpillars in our production methods and our product is suitable for vegans. There are no grains in our process either.
Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng) is one of the most well known and valued herbs used by mankind. It is a potent energy tonic and an adaptogen which also supports respiratory functions and it works like a charm together with cordyceps to get you going! There is 200mg of strong ginseng extract in each packet, made from a combination of both roots and aerial parts of the plant.
Harmonizing and naturally sweet licorice brings an unique touch to the cordyceps mushroom. Licorice is used in more formulations than any other herb in Chinese herbalism because of its ability to enhance and smooth out the effects of other herbs and mushrooms. There is 200 mg of licorice root extract in each packet (contains only less than 0.9 mg of glycyrrhizin acid).
Delicious mint leaf is in the combo for a nice touch to the taste and for its soothing effects on the stomach.
Those beautiful, deep red vitamin C bombs - rose hips - have always been close to our hearts. As kids we used to take the “itching powder” from the inside of the fruits, later on we started eating them as energizing road side snacks, and now we wanted to include them with our mushrooms to increase the absorption. Each packet has 30 mg of natural vitamin C from the rose hip extract (50% RDI), which makes it easier for your body to intake the mushrooms.
We add a pinch of stevia leaf extract for a little calorie-free sweetness. The amount is less than 0.2% as our stevia is high-quality concentrated extract without any metallic aftertaste. It is just enough to round out the flavour but not too sweet at all!
