Currently, you can purchase medicinal mushrooms fresh, powdered, in capsule form, in tinctures, and more. So, which form is the best, and how should you take it?
What Is the Best Time of Day to Take Cordyceps?
However, it's important to understand that these mushrooms are fundamentally different from many pharmaceutical drugs.
There isn't a concrete answer as to how long it takes for Cordyceps to work, since everyone is different.
How Often Should You Take Cordyceps?
The most there is to go on, by deduction of the existing research, is that regular dosing of Cordyceps appears to be safe up to a year of consumption.
Different Ways to Consume Cordyceps Mushrooms and Their Dosages
Some more specific recommendations for using the various Cordyceps products are listed below.
Raw and Fresh Cordyceps
Although more difficult to find than extracts you are still able to purchase whole fruiting bodies of this fungus. No matter how you choose to prepare them, it's important to remember that in order to get the benefits of mushrooms, you need to break down the outer layer of chitin first using heat.
As such, here are the popular ways of using fresh Cordyceps:
- Steeped in tea - The benefits and simplicity of Cordyceps tea have been widely utilised by many traditional medical practitioners throughout history. Simply boil a dosage of Cordyceps in water for a few minutes, then lower temperature to simmering and continue steeping for another 15 minutes. Extract the fruiting bodies, save them for cooking or dispose of them, add honey and other tea spices to taste, and then enjoy.
- Cooked in food - Like regular mushrooms, Cordyceps can be enjoyed cooked into a meal of your choice. Some popular options are pastas and soups.
As for the recommended dosages of refined Cordyceps extracts, they should be listed on the product, and they can come in any of the following forms:
- Cordyceps drops - Whether these are made through extraction of alcohol (tinctures), hot water, or cold-pressed, all can be taken sublingually.
- Cordyceps supplements - Cordyceps as a supplement can either be in the form of powdered extracts that are added to food or mixed with beverages, or packaged in capsules.
