CordyMax® Cs-4® is a proprietary, standardized extract of Cordyceps sinensis mushroom to promote stamina and vitality while reducing fatigue.*
The mushroom Cordyceps sinensis, which produces the proprietary active ingredient in CordyMax® Cs-4®, has a rich, two thousand year history. For generations, Cordyceps sinensis has been considered the premier agent in the Chinese culture for restoring energy, promoting longevity and improving the quality of life. This natural material is extremely rare. The mushroom grows primarily on the Tibetan plateau at altitudes above 14,000 feet and takes five to seven years to complete its life cycle and produce the natural product. Due to the scarcity and high price of Cordyceps sinensis, its use was reserved exclusively for the Emperor’s Palace. For two thousand years, Cordyceps sinensis was virtually unknown in the Western world.*
