What is cordyceps extract?

Our Cordyceps extract is a purified and dehydrated mix of the active ingredients found within Cordyceps mushrooms. 

The dual extraction method that our supplier uses combines hot water extraction and alcohol extraction to obtain a broader spectrum of bioactive compounds from Cordyceps mushrooms. First, the mushrooms are simmered in water to extract water-soluble compounds, followed by soaking in alcohol to extract alcohol-soluble constituents.
