Cordyceps

January 28, 2019 2 min read 1 Comment

Found in the highlands of Nepal, Tibet, and China, cordyceps is often called the “caterpillar mushroom.” In our formulation, we use cordyceps’ adaptogenic ability to decrease fatigue and increase physical endurance. Studies have also shown that cordyceps protects the skin against ultraviolet radiation damage (the sun!).
