Cordyceps Products

Cordyceps Products

Indigo Herbs has long been dedicated to bringing the public unique and sought after plants and herbs. The Cordyceps sinensis fungi has long been a rarity since it only grows naturally on the wild plains of China and Tibet. This has made it very expensive and hard to acquire in western countries. Through scientific research the Cordyceps sinensis fungi can now be bred and grown in laboratory conditions making the this fungi widely available to everybody. Here at Indigo Herbs we are proud to be able to offer you pure Cordyceps CS-4 Powder so you to can benefit from this amazing fungi.

The 'CS-4' strain of Cordyceps was achieved by taking Paecilomyces hepialid Chen and Dai Cs-4 isolated from wild Cordyceps sinensis and producing a viable mushroom with the same chemical composition as the wild Cordyceps variety. This research took many years to complete and has resulted in a mushroom that is no longer destined only for the those who can afford it.

The Cordyceps fungi has a long tradition in Chinese medicine being the chosen supplement for emperors and other royalty. Legend tells how the fungi was discovered by Tibetan herdsman who observed their yak becoming sprightly after consuming a strange 'blue grass'. After experimenting on themselves it was discovered that the 'blue grass' was a fungi that sprouted from the heads of dead caterpillars under the earth. The properties then spread throughout China and was used accordingly by the Chinese upper classes.

The Cordyceps sinensis fungi has a 6 year life cycle and is found in the wild on the Tibetan Plateau. This strange fungi infects the bodies of caterpillars under the earth and sprouts through their heads to break ground resembling a thin blue horn. This is not the Cordyceps that is sold at Indigo Herbs but the wild variety. All Indigo Herbs Cordyceps is lab grown to ensure absolute purity and availability.

At Indigo Herbs we are passionate about premium quality botanicals. Explore the tabs on this page to find out more about the quality, manufacture and suggested use of this herbal powder. We are unable to advise you here on the benefits of our herbal products, however we do recommend you take the opportunity to research the many benefits of this herb.

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

This is a ready to eat powder and can be added to hot or cold water, fruit juice or added to a smoothie.

Serving:

A typical serving of cordyceps can be from 1 to 2 grams up to 3 times a day. To avoid symptoms of detoxification do not to exceed the suggested serving.

1 teaspoon equals 3 grams (1 tsp = 3g)
  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Re-sealable air tight, foil pouch.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

Manufacture Process

The 'CS-4' strain of Cordyceps was achieved by taking the wild Cordeceps strains:

  • Paecilomyces hepialid Chen and Dai Cs-4

Then by a process of liquid fermintation, producing a viable mushroom with the same chemical composition as the wild Cordyceps variety. This research took many years to complete and has resulted in a mushroom that is no longer only destined for those who can afford it. Indigo Herbs Cordyceps CS-4 Powder is not the wild variety but the next best thing.

  • The research resulted in the Cordyceps strain Cs-4.

Cordycepin 0.4%

Cordycepic Acid 13%

Polyaccharide 5.8%

Avoid in individuals with a known allergy or hypersensitivity to cordyceps, mold, or fungi. Cordyceps may cause dry mouth, nausea, loss of appetite, diarrhea or dizziness.

Cordyceps is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women due to a lack of available scientific evidence. Cordyceps may be possibly unsafe in pregnant women, as it may affect steroid hormone levels.
