Benefits of Cordyceps Mushroom
Cordyceps mushroom (Cordyceps militaris) has a long history of use as a longevity promoting and life-enhancing superfood. Its broad range of benefits includes being a superb athlete’s tonic for building physical strength and power, increasing vitality and mental energy, and boosting immunity and libido.
Cordyceps Mushrooms Are Adaptogenic
Cordyceps mushrooms are adaptogens. If you aren’t familiar with adaptogens, they are plants or, in this case, mushrooms that help to normalize the body, especially during times of stress. They support your body so that it can better cope with whatever stress you’re experiencing.
This mushroom, like other adaptogens, “assists the body in creating and maintaining balance during times of stress.”
Other adaptogens include American Ginseng, Reishi, Eleuthero, Schisandra, Holy Basil, and Ashwagandha.
Cordyceps Mushrooms Provide Antioxidant Support*
Antioxidants are important for overall health, as they minimize cell damage from free radicals, thus also minimizing oxidative stress. Cordyceps mushrooms are a good source of antioxidant support.
In Herbal Medicine: Biomolecular and Clinical Aspects, authors Bao-qin Lin and Shao-ping Li share, “There is increasing evidence that Cordyceps has antioxidant activity.
And, from the results of a study on antioxidant activity, we see that “Cordyceps, in general, possesses a strong anti-oxidation activity in all assays tested.”
Cordyceps Mushrooms Support Male Reproductive Health*
Cordyceps’ antioxidant effect also impacts male reproductive health. One study “showed evidence that C. militaris may be able to protect testicles against oxidative damage” from BPA, a plasticizer
But that’s not all that Cordyceps mushrooms do for male reproductive health. Lin and Li note that both wild and cultivated Cordyceps have been shown to support reproductive activity and help with impaired reproductive function.
Meanwhile, the results of an animal study “indicate that supplementation with [Cordyceps militaris] improves sperm quality and quantity in rats.” While this study was performed on rats, Cordyceps are believed to support normal, healthy male fertility in humans. However, further human clinical studies are needed to confirm this finding.
Cordyceps Mushrooms Support the Immune System*
One of our favorite Cordyceps mushroom benefits is that it supports the immune system in a variety of ways.
As we mentioned, this mushroom was traditionally used to treat the lungs. Lin and Li suggest that this is thanks to “immune activation, particularly the promotion of innate immunity.” But the benefits of Cordyceps for the immune system go even further—all the way down to your gut.
Your gut flora actually has a lot to do with immune health, and there is evidence that Cordyceps sinensis can help regulate intestinal bacteria by improving [gastrointestinal-associated lymphoid tissue], systemic immunity, or both.”
Cordyceps Mushrooms Support Healthy Stamina and Energy
In addition to the general support that Cordyceps provides for overall health, this mushroom is most well-known for promoting healthy energy levels. It also supports physical stamina, even enhancing “cellular energy in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
This is of interest especially for athletes and older adults. One study administered Cordyceps sinensis to older adults, and both the metabolic threshold and the ventilatory threshold showed signs of increase after 12 weeks.
The study suggests that Cordyceps sinensis “improves exercise performance and might contribute to wellness in healthy older subjects.
May Improve Liver Function
Hepatitis B virus (hepatitis B) can cause the swelling (inflammation) of the liver. However, according to some early proof – taking Cordyceps orally might better liver function in hepatitis B patients.
Possible Benefits for Heart Health
Fresh studies are growingly showing the benefits of Cordyceps to the heart’s health. In China (since 1964) only C. sinensis has been recorded officially as an herbal drug in Chinese pharmacopoeia
The results of another study which used the Langendorff mouse heart model, showed a repressive role of C. sinensis in ischemic contracture. According to researchers, the results indicate that C. sinensis affords cardioprotection possibly through enhanced adenosine receptor activation
