Cordyceps militaris

Our mycological laboratory has been preparing this product for a long time. We are one of the first companies outside of China to grow Cordyceps militaris fruiting bodies. At KÄÄPÄ Biotech we grow Cordyceps in our organic certified laboratory in organic and vegan substrate. 

Research shows that Cordyceps militaris species contain high levels of the compound cordycepin, known for a variety of beneficial properties. Cordyceps is used to raise energy levels, and to increase VO₂max. Cordyceps is an extremely effective mushroom: unlike caffeine which stimulates the central nervous system, cordyceps increases ATP availability on mitochondrial level. ATP is essential for delivering energy to the muscles.
