Cordyceps Select™ contains a researched form of an ancient tonic mushroom. Each capsule provides 500 mg of Cordyceps sinensis as pure Cs-4 mycelia extract, a form of cordyceps which is produced via controlled fermentation on a rice substrate, rather than the natural caterpillar fungus that grows in Tibet. The two forms of cordyceps have been shown to offer equal effectiveness, functioning via multiple mechanisms of action for use in numerous applications.
CORDYCEPS SINENSIS is a fascinating medicinal mushroom. It has been used as an aphrodisiac and longevity tonic in traditional Chinese medicine since at least 200 BCE. In recent decades, cordyceps has become a popular dietary supplement for promoting energy and endurance, boosting immunity, supporting healthy blood sugar control and addressing many other conditions, from neoplasms to libido.

Cs-4 cordyceps extract and its primary bioactive compound, cordycepin, have been the subject of numerous clinical studies investigating its potential benefits on a variety of outcomes. Chief among these include helping optimize a healthy inflammation and immune system response and helping to enhancing insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism. The polysaccharide cordycepin has been shown to protect a wide variety of cells throughout the body by providing powerful antioxidant activity.
Cordyceps appears to have an adaptogenic effect on the immune system, increasing or inhibiting immune activity as needed. For example, cordyceps (as Cs-4) has been suggested to help support intestinal immune activity by promoting the function of gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT), and to inhibit an overactive immune response by preventing lymphocyte infiltration into tissues. Research suggests cordycepin may work synergistically with other compounds naturally present in cordyceps to help support a healthy immune response via mechanisms such as increased macrophage activity, modulation of phagocytosis and cytokine regulation.
Most human research on Cs-4 has been conducted in China where the extract has been studied in thousands of patients. No reports of adverse events are noted in the medical literature, suggesting an extremely high safety profile and efficacy potential for Cordyceps Select™.
