* We use a pure mycelium product called Cs-4 for our SuperFeast Cordyceps. This is a cultivated strain of Ophiocordyceps sinensis formerly known as Cordyceps sinensis. You can read more about why we use this strain on ourFAQ page. There are several members of the Cordyceps family such as Cordyceps Militaris which contains the active constituent cordycepin. SuperFeast Cordyceps CS-4 primarily contains cordyceptic acid (7%), and adenosine (0.3%). These constituents are responsible for Cordyceps anti-inflammatory, immunological, energy producing, and antioxidant activities.
