Precautions Excessive use may cause mild diarrhea, dry mouth, and nausea
FLAVOR: They have a mild nutty flavor, with earthiness still coming through. It has a very pleasant taste and almost a hint of sweetness to it. It reminds me of flax. It is really good. Use it like you would flax. I really like it. I mixed it in with my reishi and chaga drinks, but it is too grainy to do it. However, if you want to follow the directions online, that is fine as well.
Precaution: Excessive use may cause mild diarrhea, dry mouth, and nausea. If you have low blood sugar or an auto-immune disorder, do not use,since Cordyceps tends to lower blood sugar and significantly increase immunity. Which is good news for most people, but not really studied for those with these conditions.
Typical Preparation: Use like you would ground flax, some say to put it in juice or make tea out of it, but I disagree because it is too grainy to do that, so just check out the different ways to use ground flax seed. Unlike ground flax, cordycep does not lose it's potency from being ground. Cordycep is an extremely safe mushroom with only mild digestive upsets being reported after taking large doses. We recommend that you take 1 gram a day. You can mix it in with a smoothy.
