5 benefits of Cordyceps medicinal mushrooms 

Known to fight inflammation in the body

A recent study has shown that when cells (human cells) are exposed to Cordyceps mushrooms inflammation is suppressed! Inflammation is caused by so many things, and too much inflammation is the cause of many illnesses. Also, the Teelixir team are so smart they’ve mixed the Cordyceps with the Turmeric which also has all the anti-inflammation properties. Double the goodness!

Increases physical performance 

Cordyceps is actually commonly used by athletes because it’s known to improve performance, build strength, increase endurance, stamina and promote fast recovery. Ummmm, YES PLEASE! It’s known as a ‘life-enhancing’ supplement. Apparently, it helps the body get more oxygen and enhance cellular energy production… meaning you get an energy boost! 

Also boosts libido

Continuing on from the physical preformation benefit. Cordyceps medicinal mushrooms have been long used as a natural libido enhancer. Many studies have in fact shown it helps men with low sex drive in particular! If this is you or your lover, we vote to enjoy a daily cup of Golden Turmeric Latte with Cordyceps and Ginger! A fun little ritual that might lead to even more fun.

Promotes longevity and is anti-aging

We’re 100% not into botox BUT we’re into adding healthy natural supplements that promote longevity and anti-aging! Apparently, Cordyceps is amazing for our skin! It is known to slow the signs of aging because it can help fight free radical damage and then prevent oxidative stress… meaning slowing down wrinkles and age spots. 

Immune booster

Right now it’s officially winter here in Australia so this means the cold and flu season is coming. Ahhhh! No thank you!

This is from the Teelixir blog… fascinating! 

Mushrooms have to fight off the same pathogens, bacteria and viruses that we encounter in life. They have developed a strong defense system in nature against invading bacterias which have shown to be very effective for us humans.
