The benefits of using a tincture compared to an encapsulated powder or tea is that tinctures are specifically designed to maximize the bioavailability of Cordyceps' benefits. This is because of the following dual extraction process:
(1) Ethanol extract - The tincture process begins by soaking ground Cordyceps militaris in 99% alcohol for 4-6 weeks. This releases the compounds in the mushroom that are not water soluble, increasing their bioavailability. After the soak, the Cordyceps solids are removed by filtration.
(2) Hot water extract - Our hot water extract starts by taking fresh ground Cordyceps (i.e. new, fresh Cordyceps- not the same Cordyceps that has already been soaked in alcohol) and simmering it in distilled water for 24 full hours. After the simmer is complete, the Cordyceps solids are removed by filtration.
(3) The third and final step is combining 1 part of the alcohol extract to 3.5 parts of the hot water extract. The finished solution contains approximately 70mg Cordyceps solutes per ml of extract.
Instructions for Use: We suggest using 25 drops (1 dropper full) of Cordyceps tincture twice per day, which equates to 1.25ml per serving, or 87.5mg Cordyceps per serving, and 175mg Cordyceps per day. Though most people prefer to mix their Cordyceps tincture into a favorite beverage or smoothie, if you're brave, you can put drops under your tongue.
A daily regimen is important: If used as directed, a 2oz bottle will last 24 days and a 4oz bottle will last 48 days.
