Cordyceps sinensis – What is it? An entomopathic ascomycetes fungus from high elevations in the Himalayas mountains
Quality Issues in Cordyceps 80% of Chinese Cordyceps is Adulterated..or Counterfeit! Adulteration with Polysaccharides in Cordyceps is Difficult..to Detect No Universally Accepted Test Protocols
How To Accomplished This Goal Develop Analytical Methods to Determine ‘Quality Index’ Determine Optimum Substrate Composition Modified Culture Parameters for Target Compounds Create New Hybrid Strains
Determination of which compounds to test for! 1 st Step in creating the World Best Cordyceps: Target Compounds for Analysis and Standardization They Need to be Unique to Cordyceps They Need to be Cheaply and Accurately Detected They Need to be Difficult to Counterfeit or Adulterate
Prototypical Chemical Markers for Cordyceps - HEAA Altered Adenosine-type Nucleosides which are found nowhere else in Nature Hydroxy - Ethyl - Adenosine - Analogs
Hydroxy-Ethyl Adenosine Found only in Cordyceps and impossible to counterfeit!
HEA Analogs Adenosine Cordycepin Dideoxyadenosine
By using these HEAA compounds as the ‘Quality Index’ standard, a simple and repeatable analytical method by which all Cordyceps can be graded and compared has been established.
What about testing for other compounds? Cordycepic Acid? Not a Unique Compound – There is More Cordycepic Acid in Cranberries than in Cordyceps! Polysaccharides? Impossible to Detect Adulteration with Cheap Polysaccharides like Corn Starch! Structural Determination too Expensive!

2 nd Step in Creating the Worlds Best Cordyceps Replicate the Natural Growth Conditions!
Cordyceps Hybrid is the only Cordyceps grown in specially designed Low-Oxygen, Low Temperature environment!
Cordyceps Hybrid is: Grown Only in Glass Glass Containers – Not plastic or Metal! Grown at Only 50% atmospheric Oxygen! Grown at Nearly Freezing Temperatures – Only 4° 4° C! Grown for 6 months! Not Fermented 4 or 5 days as in China! 100% USDA Certified Organic! Special Culture Techniques
3 rd step in creating the Worlds Best Cordyceps: HYBRIDIZATION
What are Hybridized Strains? Super-Strains of Cordyceps, cross bred to increase production of the target medicinal compounds. Non-GMO and Certified Organic!
HEAA increase through Hybridization
Cordyceps Hybrid is MORE POTENT than Wild Cordyceps!
Comparing Cordyceps Hybrid to Chinese CS-4
Where are these Hybrid Cordyceps Strains Available?
