Cordyceps Mushrooms - Adaptogenic Mushrooms for Functional Wellness- Troomy Nootropics in Whittier, CA

Cordyceps mushrooms can be a life-changing addition to your daily routine.

As a leading adaptogenic mushroom species, cordyceps militaris have been recognized for the past several thousand years in eastern cultures until they recently made their shift west. 

Today, these mushrooms are available as extracts in gummies, supplements, coffees, and more. The trick is finding if cordyceps are the right mushrooms for you, or if there are some others you might want to try.

What are Adaptogenic Mushrooms?

You might have heard of these around your office or in school. Adaptogenic mushrooms are a handful of the most health-supportive medicinal mushrooms available today that originally were used in easter cultures more, especially in traditional Chinese medicine. That includes the chaga mushroom, the reishi mushroom, cordyceps sinensis, and a few others that have a variety of support focuses.

Cordyceps leads the rest of adaptogenic mushrooms in support for daily energy, but others can be great for your immune system, sleep habits, and more. Check out the rest of our mushrooms we use in Troomy blends here if you're looking to learn a bit more about how they're different.

Mushroom Extract vs Raw Mushrooms

Raw mushrooms are nice to have on hand if you can. The tough part is just keeping them fresh, which makes extracts in gummies and supplements a quality alternative.

Mushroom Extract in Gummies

You can grab a gummy and go, or throw a mushroom powder in a shake and drink it on the way to work. Either case, there's a bit more efficiency, you don't have to worry about freshness, and still get the same dietary impact for the most part.

What Makes Cordyceps GREAT?

Energy Boosting Properties

Can't help but love a little extra energy, right? With the boost of adenosine triphosphate production (or ATP for short), your body's able to deliver energy faster with better oxygen distribution. This creates strong support for athletes particularly, but really can help anyone looking to get the most out of their everyday activity.

No Caffeine, No Crash

If you have cordyceps raw or in a caffeine-free gummy for example, you can get that natural energy boost you're looking for without losing any part of your day to low energy.


Feeling younger's such a tough find. Luckily, cordyceps possess strong anti-aging properties that could keep them as reliable relievers for keeping your lungs, skin, colon, and other affected areas feeling strong.

Heart Health

Healthy heart support in what you eat is also more difficult to find than ever. With how loaded some meals are in carbs, fats, and sugars, you have to be so careful if you're trying to eat well. Adaptogenic mushrooms like cordyceps sinensis promote better heart health and overall wellness.

FAQ on Cordyceps

Can I consume cordyceps safely?

Yes! Cordyceps sinensis is generally pretty safe to consume. If you have lingering conditions like lung cancer, diabetes, or chronic kidney disease, the potential health benefits might need to be considered ahead of you giving them a try.

Can I learn how to grow cordyceps?

Yes you can! It's a lot of work, but it's worth doing it if you want to have them on hand regularly and fresh. If you want to work in the health and wellness space using cordyceps, it's an excellent natural boost to desserts, dinners, and other fun meals.

Will I see cordyceps at the grocery store?

Definitely not, for the most part. There will be a handful of grocery stores that'll carry these, but your best bet is going to a farmer's market or buying online, usually.

Same goes for the majority of adaptogenic mushrooms or mushroom extracts you're looking for. Chances are, only a handful will be at even the highest-profile organic markets. Once you find a consistent spot that you can get them online or in-person, make sure you keep track of their inventory and such when you go in so you can plan around your schedule best.

Can I put these mushrooms in coffee?

Absolutely. Usually you'll want to try a blend of coffee that's been made with cordyceps already to ensure you get the flavor right. Although, if you want to experiment on your own, go for it. It can be fun to give a whirl with cordyceps and other functional mushrooms.

What are cordyceps mushroom coffee benefits?

Who doesn't love coffee? Coffee's a daily part of most of our lives, and adaptogenic mushroom coffee like cordyceps sinensis is no different. 

What are side effects of cordyceps?

There aren't any major risks that have been found in studies associated with cordyceps sinensis. However, you might get the occasional upset stomach or a bit of nausea if your body isn't used to that kind of support. Also, avoid overusing them in your diet. Too much of anything can be overwhelming to the body.
