When it comes to our food and the benefits received, Mother Nature has a funny way of giving us hints as to how that food will help us. It’s as though she is trying to show us the benefits based on the look of the plant, fruit, fungus, nut, etc. For example, walnuts are good for the brain, celery helps with bone strength, tomatoes reduce heart disease and oysters are great for male and female reproductive organs. With that said, cordyceps, with its phallic-like appearance, are no exception to this rule.
What are cordyceps? They are a fascinating type of parasitic fungus that invade various species of insects and eventually replace the host tissue with the fungus’ mycelium, to which the elongated fruit body of the fungus then grows out of the body or head of the unfortunate insect. Crazy, but fortunately for us, these funguses cannot invade the human body, and in fact, have amazing superfood health benefits.
Some of the most sought-after benefits of cordyceps are their ability to increase libido, stamina and circulation, all which come in handy in the bedroom. One of the key active ingredients of cordyceps is adenosine, a nucleic acid which is a crucial component of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a high-energy molecule that stores the energy we need to do pretty much everything. Each action we perform gets the energy it requires for operation directly from stored ATP. Cordyceps significantly boost our body’s ability to produce this important, energy-giving ATP, which is why it’s considered a superfood darling for everyone from athletes looking to boost their stamina and performance to the elderly seeking to stay active. It also serves as an effective stimulant, giving a boost similar to caffeine but minus the jittery, sleep-depriving side effects.
Cordyceps have also been shown to boost testosterone levels, which are crucial for supporting maximum muscle growth. That’s because cordyceps contains a number of nucleosides like deoxyuridine, thymidine, hypoxanthine and adenosine which play a key role in producing energy and enhancing blood flow. These nucleosides also provide the body with several essential amino acids and sterols that help maintain the elasticity of channels where blood flows through, such as blood vessels, veins and arteries.
For those looking for a little extra boost in the sack, add some of this phallic fungus to your diet and watch your energy and stamina levels increase.
