Frequently Asked Questions
What is Cordyceps+?
Cordyceps sinensis is a medicinal fungus that grows off the mummified remains of the ghost moth caterpillar at altitudes above 14,000 feet in the Himalayan plateau. This caterpillar-fungus fusion has been used for thousands of years in Eastern medicine to improve mental and physical performance, longevity, vitality and immunity. HANAH Cordyceps+ is a combination of Cordyceps sinensis and 7 powerful herbs that work together synergistically to increase the potency of the formula. The 8 additional herbs include: Shilajit, Ashwagandha, Sea buckthorn, Solomon’s seal, Shatavari, Rhododendron, and Pushkarmool.
How do I take Cordyceps+?
For many people, Cordyceps provides a rather noticeable energy boost, so we recommend starting with a small dose and then listen to your body and increase the dosage if required. If it's your first time trying Cordyceps+, we suggest starting with 2 capsules and using it on an as-needed basis for focus, clarity, and stamina. For big days, it’s possible to take 4 capsules total.
Why should I take Cordyceps+?
Cordyceps sinensis has been used for thousands of years in Eastern medicine to improve mental and physical performance, longevity, vitality and immunity. HANAH sources Cordyceps sinensis from the Himalayas of Bhutan where the harvest season is limited to one month to protect the environment and the sustainability of the Cordyceps. Due to the rarity, limited harvesting season and high-cost, the majority of Cordyceps on the market are not genuine wild-harvested Cordyceps sinensis, but rather, are artificially grown in a lab. Some are grown on sterile grain and actually contain more starch than medicinal compounds. There is a big difference between wild and cultivated Cordyceps. Studies have shown that wild Cordyceps are richer in certain chemical and biological components and that the proportions and amounts of certain elements are different, thus impacting efficacy. In a nutshell, wild Cordyceps are rare, precious and more effective.

Please be advised that reactions and sensitivities to herbs and functional mushrooms do vary.

Are Cordyceps compatible with my diet or dietary restrictions?
All HANAH products are completely free of gluten, wheat, soy, caffeine and GMOs. Naturally occurring Cordyceps sinensis acts as a parasitic fungus on a caterpillar, technically making it a non-vegan product.
WARNING: HANAH products are processed in a facility that also processes tree nuts. In addition, the HANAH Coffee Boost line of products contain coconut milk powder, and the FDA classifies coconuts as a tree nut. If you have detailed questions about your individual needs and sensitivities to certain ingredients, it’s always best to consult with an herbalist or healthcare provider.
Can I take Cordyceps with other supplements? What about medications?
Cordyceps+ is generally safe to take with other supplements. However, when it comes to medications, we legally cannot provide any medical advice. We suggest reaching out to your health care practitioner or herbalist if you are concerned about taking our products with other medications or supplements.
What lab tests are done on Cordyceps+?
We rigorously test every batch of product in the country of origin at a licensed reputable independent laboratory for pesticides, microbes, heavy metals, yeast, molds, salmonella and other contaminants. We ensure every batch contains only the highest quality herbs and ingredients.
Are your Cordyceps+ vegan?
In the wild, Cordyceps sinensis acts as a parasitic fungus on a host (a caterpillar), which means that the mycelium feeds on the host's tissues and eventually mummifies it. This is a natural process, just as nature intended. Most companies do not have access to naturally-produced Cordyceps sinensis and use grain to synthetically grow the fungus in place of the natural method. Unfortunately, this method often results in a far less potent version of the fungus. The Cordyceps sinensis used in Cordyceps+ is wild harvested directly from its natural source (the caterpillar) in the high-peak mountains of Bhutan, technically making it a non-vegan product.
Does Cordyceps+ contain stimulants?
Even though it gives an instant energy boost, Cordyceps+ is free of any stimulants. It has 9 herbal ingredients that are naturally harvested by hand and then triple-tested for purity and potency.
