Cordyceps is that weird fungus I mentioned earlier that grows out of insects.
If you can get past the fact that it comes from mummified bugs, it has some powerful health benefits.
It has powerful anti-cancer properties, particularly against leukemia.
It also contains lots of antioxidants.
It's one of the best medicinal mushrooms when it comes to managing cholesterol and heart disease.
It doesn't just reduce cholesterol, but it actually dilates the arteries.
That means it's also great for athletes since it strengthens the blood vessels and heart.
