The Energy Mushroom
Cordyceps mushrooms have been used traditionally for energy and fatigue and contain natural precursors to ATP, our cellular energy.
Unlike Cordyceps sinensis, the caterpillar fungus, Cordyceps militaris can be organically cultivated without the use of any insects.
This mushroom and its specific ingredient, cordycepin, have attracted much attention with multiple health-promoting properties including anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antidiabetic, and antiobesity activities. It increases the production of ATP, the compound that promotes cellular energy. It will help your furry friend increase their stamina to run and play. Cordyceps stimulates the production of ATP with precursor compounds like cordycepin. If your pet is lethargic, introducing Cordyceps extracts into his daily life could improve your pet’s level of energy.
Additionally, Cordyceps supports the respiratory system. It can lessen the severity of lung problems and can help diminish the symptoms of breathing-related issues, such as allergies or chronic lung disease.
Studies also show Cordycep mushrooms have impressive antitumor properties by regulating tumor microenvironment via suppressing tumor metastasis-related pathways.
Cordyceps militaris may show good promise in protecting against chronic kidney disease, improved kidney function and controlled the blood levels of urinal protein, BUN, and creatinine.
- Pets with energy or recovery needs
- i.e. competitive or working animals or lethargic pets
- May be helpful for pets with tumors
- Pets with respiratory or lung issues
- a particularly good choice for cats who may be experiencing respiratory issues due to use of the litter box
- Pets with Kidney concerns
- can be used in conjunction with conventional treatments
What Are Cordyceps Mushrooms?
Cordyceps mushrooms are parasitic fungi that include over 400 different species. They grow all over the world in countries like China, Japan, India, the United States, Australia, Peru, Bolivia, and many more. They typically infect insects and arthropods, with each species of Cordyceps infecting a very specific bug.
The life cycle begins with Cordyceps spores landing on the insect. The spore germinates, and small thread-like filaments called hyphae will begin to grow inside the insect and turn into mycelium. The mycelium (the fungi’s root-like structure that will develop into a mushroom) continues to consume the insect from the inside.
When the fungal mycelium fully consumes the insect and the environmental conditions are correct, a blade-like mushroom (fruiting body) is produced from the insect’s head. The mushroom then releases spores and the life cycle starts over. As you can imagine, this lifecycle can make cultivation and harvest rather difficult. However, there is currently one type of Cordyceps species that can be commercially cultivated at scale to produce a mushroom (fruiting body), and it is becoming quite popular for use in supplements. This is Cordyceps militaris.
Cordyceps militaris is known as Scarlet Club Fungus, or Caterpillar Killer in the U.S. It is the Cordyceps species that can grow on the largest variety of insects and can be found widely in North America and Asia. They are commonly found in the mountains, in bogs.
This Cordyceps variety can be commercially cultivated at scale rather easily. By using Cordyceps militaris, for the first time, true Cordyceps mushroom extracts can be made.
From A Chinese Medicine Perspective:
Yǒnɡ Chónɡ Cǎo & Dong Chong Xia Cao
Energetics: Slightly warm
Meridians: Lung and kidney
Function: Tones lung yin and kidney yang, augments essence, stops cough and reduces phlegm
Cordyceps is considered a jing tonic by nourishing yin, boosting yang, and supporting kidney essence. Essence is considered to be the elixir of life in TCM. Essence comes from lifestyle (post-natal qi: breathing, diet, meditation, mushrooms and herbs) or from energetic reserves we are born with (pre-natal qi). Cordyceps is considered to be placed on equal value with other valued tonics like ginseng, reishi and deer antler velvet.
Directions for Use in Pets: ¼ teaspoon for each 20-40 pounds of body weight daily, or as recommended by your veterinarian.
Servings (1/4 TSP) per Pouch: 120
When there is greater need by a pet, escalating that wellness amount 2-4 times can have a stronger effect. Can be given with or without food.
