The Side Effects of Cordyceps

In our last lesson we learned that pure Organic Corcyceps is an Adaptogen herb with some strong health benefits. Now it is time to ask the question that no one ever wants to hear - Are there any side effects from eating Cordyceps that we need to be aware of?

Would You Like an Insect or Stick With Your Cordyceps?

Cordyceps is a fungus that grows on another substance. In the wild mountains of Tibet, Cordyceps was known to invade the body of insects (like caterpillars) and grow on the insects. Now, in truth by the time the Cordyceps was picked, the insect it grew on was basically gone, but you have to admit – still pretty gross!

Maybe you don't need to worry about live insects in Cordyceps, but you may need to watch out for a nail or a stick. Some people will try to get Cordyceps to grow around a stick or a pin – you better hope they remove the stick before you eat it!

Wait, Cordyceps Sounds Gross Now, Why Would I Want It?

If you are getting Cordyceps from the wild you do need to be careful and worry about the side effects of eating whatever was the host for the cordyceps fungus. The good news is you can now get cultivated Organic Cordyceps that is grown on harmless rice or seeds and fully lab tested. In fact, some cultivated Organic Cordyceps is actually 5 times more potent than wild Cordyceps (more on this later).

Cultivated Cordyceps Sounds Better, Does it Have Any Side Effects?

First, a word from our lawyers…. You should always consult with your doctor before starting any supplement program. Nothing on this site should be taken as specific medical advice. We are not doctors and we can not give medical advice. I know this all sounds very legal, but it really makes sense to only take medical advice from your doctor, who knows your specific situation.

Generally speaking, pure Organic Cultivated Cordyceps Sinensis does not produce any serious side effects. Cordyceps has been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine and for over 60 years here in the Western World. In addition, remember that Cordyceps is an Adaptogen Herb and by definition adaptogen herbs can not create serious side effects.

Are There Any People Who Should Not Use Pure Organic Cordyceps?

People with an autoimmune disease, such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, or lupus, should avoid Cordyceps as it could stimulate your immune system and make your condition worse.

Women who are pregnant or nursing should always consult with their doctor before using any new supplements.

Again, this is not meant to be complete medical advice, we just wanted to highlight some examples of where Cordyceps could do more harm than good. For the vast majority of people, taking Cordyceps will be a positive experience.

How Do I Go About Getting Cordyceps Into My Diet?

Not so fast! Clearly Organic Cordyceps has potential health benefits with very limited side effects, but we still need to determine if Organic Cordyceps can pass our Outstanding Organic Ingredient Test!
