Cordyceps, the caterpillar mushroom, Cordyceps has become a prized addition to the world of training and athletes as it has the ability to boost the body’s production of ATP, a primary source of cellular energy in the body!
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a chemical substance better known as the energy currency of the cell responsible for storing and transferring energy in cells. Research proves that higher ATP production improves physical performance and endurance.
See a study below about Cordyceps and ATP:
Name of study: Enhancement of ATP generation capacity, antioxidant activity and immunomodulatory activities
Author of study: Department of Biochemistry, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Clear Water Bay, Hong Kong, China
Study Conclusion: Cordyceps, highly regarded as a tonifying herb with a dual action of Yin and Yang, stimulates mitochondrial ATP generation and enhances cellular immune responses. Given that impairment in mitochondrial functional ability and antioxidant status, and a decline in immunocompetence, are believed to be critically involved in the development of age-related diseases and the aging process.

Cordyceps is also known for its anti ageing effects, by blocking oxidative stress to the cells and counteracting the decline in bodily functions.
Cordyceps displays immunomodulatory functions, which means that it has the ability to strengthen the response of the immune system and also has the ability to control its aggravated response.
Cordyceps is an adaptogen and an effective nootropic, which means it can enhance cognitive function and prevent neurodegenerative disorders
The Cordyceps Mushroom is also an aphrodisiac (libido enhancer) for both men and women
Cordyceps Mushroom is known by many nicknames ‘zombie fungus’, the ‘caterpillar fungus’ ‘the athletes mushroom and the ‘vegetable caterpillar’. It’s also known as ‘Dong Chong Xia Ca’ in traditional Chinese medicine.
