Cordyceps militaris is currently the only Cordyceps species to be successfully cultivated via sexual reproduction. It is rich in adenosine, cordycepin, cordycepic acid, cordycepic polysaccharide, superoxide dismutase, 8 essential amino acids and vitamins. The chemical content of adenosine and cordycepin is comparable to that of Ophiocordyceps sinensis which is found in the wild.
The source of Cordyceps militaris used by H&F is from the Cordyceps Research Base at Tsinghua University. The fungal strain is cultivated in a simulated environment based on the physical geography of the Qinghai-Tibetian Plateau under strict quality control guidelines. The cultivated Cordyceps militaris has nutritional content comparable to that of Ophiocordyceps sinensis, and some active compounds are found in higher content in Cordyceps militaris than in Ophiocordyceps sinensis.
