3. Adrenal Support
This mushroom also offers strong support for the adrenal glands and recovery from adrenal depletion. When weakness and/or a lack of energy are a problem, consuming a Cordyceps tonic can help. A tonic or infusion made with this fungus is a great restorative compound for those who are recovering after a long or serious illness, after surgery, or after giving birth. It helps restore physical strength, is great for improving the appetite, and offers protection from infection.
4. Supports Liver Function
There have been numerous studies showing that consuming Cordyceps can improve the function of the liver. One clinical study that involved subjects who were diagnosed with hepatitis B showed an almost 72 percent improvement in thymol turbidity tests, and an almost 80 percent improvement in their SGPT tests after consuming Cordyceps. Both tests measured enzyme function in the liver. Another study showed that subjects with post-hepatic cirrhosis had dramatic improvement after consuming between 6 to 9 grams of Cordyceps each day for a 3 month period.
