The supplement industry is filled with trends that come and go, and over the past few years the topic of mushrooms has become one that is front and center. Cordyceps is the latest mushroom trend, but did you know it’s been around for centuries? Mdrive’s founder was an industry pioneer in bringing cordyceps to the market in America after personally trying some at a Chinese Embassy over 20 years ago. Below I’ll discuss everything you need to know about this powerful mushroom!



Originally called the Chinese caterpillar fungus, cordyceps was originally found in the higher altitudes of Tibetan plateaus of China. It is a parasitic fungus that grows in the moth caterpillar.

Cordyceps is a type of mushroom that has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. It is known for its immune-boosting and energy-enhancing properties.

In the 1993 Chinese National games a group of Chinese athletes broke nine world records, their secret? Cordyceps.

Why Is Cordyceps Trending?

I’d like to believe that it’s trending because it’s a centuries old ingredient that supports immunity and energy, but in reality it is going viral because of the HBO show The Last of Us. The show is set in a post pandemic world where cordyceps parasites infected and ravaged mankind into a zombie apocalypse.

Is Cordyceps Safe?

Let’s separate fiction and reality. Cordyceps has over 21 clinically approved benefits on human health. And for what it’s worth, I have personally taken cordyceps through my daily Mdrive formula. Some of those benefits include:



Side Effects:

Cordyceps is considered safe when taken in recommended doses. However, there are a few reported side effects, and we always recommend consulting a physician before adding supplements to your routine. Potential side effects include:


Cordyceps come in numerous forms and variations, and the potential benefits can vary greatly depending on the individual.. Webmd cites using 3-6 grams daily for using the powder format. Our formulas use a concentrated proprietary cordyceps extract and the formulas include a range from 100-500mgs.

It's easy to look at the winners standing proudly on stage or confidently at the top of a podium. What you don't see in that moment is the scars, sacrifices, and ultimately the failures that precluded that moment. It may surprise you that the CEO's, NBA MVP's, and world renowned scientists aren't all that different from you and me.

Creatine turns into creatine phosphate, which helps make a substance called adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

Nitric oxide is a molecule produced in the blood vessels' lining, the endothelium.

The endothelium is sensitive to chemical and physical conditions in our blood vessels, so when it senses the need for increased blood resulting from conditions such as low cholesterol or physical activity, it increases the production of nitric oxide.
