What does Cordyceps do? 

Let's start by understanding what cordyceps mushroom supplements are and why they've become so popular.

For thousands of years, healers in Asian cultures have used medicinal mushrooms for their health benefits. Now, with the rise of interest in nutrient-dense foods, more people are turning to medicinal mushrooms as a natural way to improve their health.

Cordyceps mushrooms are a particularly well-known species of medicinal mushroom, with Cordyceps sinensis being the most recognized. These mushrooms are believed to offer a wide range of health benefits, including increased energy, improved immune system function, appetite, stamina, and endurance.

Traditionally, Cordyceps sinensis mushrooms were harvested from the wild in the alpine regions of the Tibetan plateau. However, as their popularity grew, so did the demand for them. Unfortunately, the wild supply couldn't keep up, causing a significant price increase. Today, one kilogram of Cordyceps sinensis can easily cost $20,000, making it the most expensive mushroom in the world. It's no wonder that many people refer to Cordyceps as "Himalayan gold."
