Which medicinal mushroom is the best?

Medicinal mushrooms seem like small miracles - their therapeutic properties seem to cover almost the full spectrum of human health and well-being. And this is not exaggerated. The majority of antibiotics, several chemo-therapeutic agents, most anti-cholesterol medication (statins) and some anti-HIV medication are based on fungi. Cyclosporin, a drug without which organ transplants would be impossible, is derived from a fungus as well. And so on.

In fact, most mushrooms have only been researched for a small number of therapeutic applications. The chart below gives an indication of the existing research results of the therapeutic properties that were investigated so far.

Please take notice: 'immune balancing' covers a lot of health problems, including many allergies and auto-immune related diseases. These have not been listed separately. This overview is also not complete - we will update it and refine it when more data becomes available.

Be aware of the fact that if a property is left blank for a particular mushroom this only means that this property so far has not been investigated in depth.

These results have all been achieved with extracted mushroom products (extraction using e.g. hot water, ethanol, methanol, fermentation or combinations of these) - they are not applicable to biomass or un-extracted, dried and powdered mushroom products or tinctures.

Why choose a Cordyceps product ?

Science has been researching medicinal mushrooms for decades. Below we've listed the main targets in Cordyceps research***.
Take notice: this list should not be interpreted as a list of medical claims! For an extensive background click here  ( page opens in new window ).

  • • Effect on physical performance and endurance

    Clinical trials and other research indicated that Cordyceps helps to increase the oxygen intake ability of red blood cells. This property will improve physical performance, reduce fatigue and oxidative stress and can increase respiratory capacity.

    This specific property is due to the presence of cordycepin (3'-deoxyadenosine) in particular, which stimulates the production of ATP, ther main source of energy in our body.

    ORIVeDA Cordyceps SM contains over 1% of cordycepin, which is over three times more than the best of the rest.

    This makes Cordyceps SM a good choice for the elderly (it is already very popular in SE-Asia in particular, as it is said to improve the quality of life significantly) and athletes.

  • • The effect on the libido of both men and women

    A traditional belief that has been investigated thoroughly in both animal and clinical tests. Apart from the assumed effect on sex-drive an increased synthesis of 17-OH corticosteroids and 17-ketosteroids and a massive reduction in the production of abnormal spermatozoa was noted. During a toxicity test with rabbits an increase was found in the size of the testicles together with an significant increase in sperm count.

    This effect is usually attributed to cordycepin, just like the effect on physical performance.

    ORIVeDA Cordyceps SM contains over 1% of cordycepin, which is over three times more than the best of the rest.

  • • The effect on cholesterol-levels and related cardiovascular effects

    After 30 days of treatment triglycerides and total cholesterol was significantly lower. The production of HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) increased ± 30% after treatment with Cordyceps. This is very interesting, as high HDL levels reduce the risk for heart diseases by e.g. removing LDL (bad) cholesterol from where it doesn't belong. For more info, check this link.

    Clinical trials indicated an improvement of ECG and clinical symptoms in patients with ischemic heart diseases or chronic heart failures and a decrease of anoxia of the heart. Blood/blood plasma viscosity was reduced. Heart arrhythmia's improved (confirmed by ECG).

    Cordyceps is thought to improve the blood circulation to essential organs, decrease platelet aggregation and has potentially an anti-thrombotic and blood thinning effect because of the presence of adenosine (although the levels in OTC dietary supplements are low) and cordycepin (3'-deoxyadenosine)

  • • The effect on kidney functions

    A series of clinical trials confirmed the protective role of Cordyceps against kidney toxicity associated with amino glycoside antibiotics (kanamycin, amikacin, gentamicin) and cyclosporin A. In general Cordyceps extracts improved the kidney functions in people with renal dysfunction. An increase in SOD-production (anti oxidant function) has been reported.

  • • Cordyceps and respiratory problems

    Another traditional use that has been investigated in depth during research and clinical trials. Patients with chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma or pulmonary heart disease might benefit from Cordyceps use; the lung function was said to improve. This is attributed to cordycepin in particular.

  • • Cordyceps and liver problems

    Cordyceps might help to reduce hepatitis-B viral load, according to some reports. In some patients with hepatitis B and patients with post-hepatitis cirrhosis turbidity blood tests returned to normal. Improvement was also seen in patients with post-schistosomiasis cirrhosis. These are very promising results!

  • • Cordyceps as an immune modulator

    The use of very pure Cordyceps extracts can increase the production of interferon, e.g. However, compared against other medicinal mushrooms CS is not outstanding as an immune modulator, because the level of beta-glucan is relatively low (± 9 - 10%).

  • • Side effects and safety

    In all the literature (and this is a lot!) no side effects or any signs of toxicity were reported. Even in very high doses (10 grams p/kg of body weight, during several months) no differences in heart rate, temperature, metabolism and general physical condition were found.
    People using blood thinners and/or anti-thrombotic medication should be aware that Cordyceps contains some adenosine. Adenosine has a blood thinning effect, and the combination with this type of medication might cause unforeseen effects.

Why choose the ORIVeDA Cordyceps SM extract ?

Oriveda Cordyceps SM is not only the therapeutically most potent Cordyceps extract commercially available but also the only fully certified Cordyceps extract worldwide (ISO 9001:2008; cGMP and HACCP). Safety and therapeutic potential are therefore guaranteed.

It has been extracted using both hot water and alcohol, resulting in a premium full spectrum product with 100% bioavailability of the main bio-actives, while maintaining their original synergy.

more details..

The CS-4 mycelium strain of Cordyceps sinensis is the most researched form (over 98% of all research) and was found to be the most potent and effective strain (therapeutically speaking), even out-classing wild Cordyceps in terms of the presence of nucleosides such as adenosine.

ORIVeDA Cordyceps SM contains 66.6% of premium 'deep layer cultivated' CS-4 extract (starch-free).

In Cordyceps militaris the cordycepin nucleoside has been the main subject of research in the past decades. It is an important bioactive compound and a marker for Cordyceps militaris's quality.

ORIVeDA Cordyceps SM contains 33.4% of dual extracted Cordyceps militaris fruiting body and the supplement as a whole contains ≥ 1% of bioavailable cordycepin.

Summarizing: Cordyceps SM combines a premium CS-4 mycelium extract with a premium Cordyceps militaris fruiting body extract. The outcome is a blend that includes the best of both worlds.

When compared against run-of-the-mill Cordyceps extracts the revitalising and libido enhancing properties have improved in particular, together with the kidney- and lung-protective properties.

Thanks to advanced pharmaceutical techniques the guaranteed levels of bioavailable(!) bio-actives in our Cordyceps SM extract are the highest in the world. Verifiable - see the Supplement Facts label or !


NB - Some American producers are stating that CS-4 is not genuine Cordyceps sinensis (suggesting it is best avoided).

However, even if it is true it is actually irrelevant, as all major research over the past 40 years has been performed with the CS-4 strain, and those research results speak for themselves - they are excellent.

The reputation of Cordyceps sinensis as a dietary supplement is based almost exclusively on the CS-4 research. Their 'genuine' product however has a research track-record of zero, and on top of that is not even extracted, making therapeutic effects unpredictable at best.
