Cordyceps is an extremely safe herb with only mild digestive upsets being reported after taking large doses. We recommend that you take between 2g-5g a day. Just add to a glass of filtered water, a smoothie or sprinkle it on your food.
Not recommended if you have low blood sugar or an auto-immune disorder. Cordyceps tends to lower blood sugar and significantly increase immunity. Which is good news for most people, but is not suitable for people with these conditions.
