Cordyceps

How does Cordyceps work?

Cordyceps might improve immunity by stimulating cells and specific chemicals in the immune system. It may also have activity against cancer cells and may shrink tumor size, particularly with lung or skin cancers.

Are there safety concerns?

Cordyceps seems to be safe for most people.

Do not use cordyceps if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You have an immune system disorder such as multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus, SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), or other immune system conditions called "autoimmune disease."
