Ultra Cordyceps Plus contains a strain of pure cultivated Cordyceps sinensis recognized by the Chinese government as very similar to wild Cordyceps sinensis. Highly valued in China as a food and tonic herb, wild Cordyceps is a black, blade-shaped fungus found mainly above 13,000 feet in a mountainous region of China known as the Qinghai-Tibetan Highlands. Also called “Chinese caterpillar fungus,” wild Cordyceps grows on, and derives nutrients from, several species of caterpillars. Because wild Cordyceps is rare and difficult to harvest, due to its harsh growing environment, efforts have been made to cultivate Cordyceps mycelia for commercial application.
Ultra Cordyceps Plus contains an award-winning strain of Cordyceps mycelia standardized by HPLC for consistent potency. It contains a minimum level of 8% cordycepic acid, a polysaccharide considered to be the major active component. Cordyceps contains many other ingredients, including proteins, peptides, polysaccharides, nucleic acids such as adenosine, fatty acids, sterols, vitamins and minerals.
Ginkgo Biloba Extract
Ginkgo biloba extract is derived from the Ginkgo biloba leaf. Considered to be the oldest living plant species, Ginkgo is a large tree that has thrived on the earth since before the last Ice Age. Ginkgo leaves contain flavonoid-like substances called “flavonglycosides,” which, along with other constituents known as “terpene lactones,” give Ginkgo its beneficial properties. The Ginkgo biloba extract in Ultra Cordyceps Plus is guaranteed to contain no less than 24% flavonglycosides and 6% terpene lactones.
Artichoke Leaf Extract
Artichoke leaf contains various organic acids, including cynarin. The artichoke leaf extract in Ultra Cordyceps Plus supplies 2% to 5% cynarin.
