Cordyceps is a type of mushroom that grows in China at an altitude of 3000 to 5000 metres. After harvesting the mushroom, it is processed into a fine powder. In China, Cordyceps is known as a natural medicine. The mushroom is used for various ailments and for nourishing Ying and Yang. In Chinese the mushroom is also called Winter Worm Summer Grass because in winter the Cordyceps grows on the caterpillar of the moth and in summer, a fungus grows from it that looks like orange grass.
Wild Cordyceps are very rare and therefore very expensive, which is why the majority of Cordyceps are cultivated. For this it is important that the soil has the right composition. Our Cordyceps therefore grows on a nutrient medium of organic rice and organic silkworm protein.
