Why does Cordyceps Pro contain milk?

That is a great question! 👏

One of the ingredients in our Cordyceps Pro adaptogen blend is full-spectrum KSM-66 ashwagandha which is prepared according to traditional Ayurvedic principles. This solvent-free, green process involves treating the organically grown ashwagandha root with milk prior to processing.

What is the benefit of using traditionally prepared KSM-66 ashwagandha?

We chose to feature this ingredient in Cordyceps Pro when it became available several years ago because this is what allows the full benefits of this remarkable herb to be extracted and experienced by those who use it. 🌿

Here is a small sample of some of the clinically studied benefits of full-spectrum KSM-66 ashwagandha:

For stress and anxiety

For memory and cognitive function

For cardio-respiratory endurance

For thyroid health

For male sexual function/fertility

For female sexual function/fertility

While the actual likelihood of any milk or milk protein ending up in the final product is extremely low, we felt that it was important to disclose this on our packaging. 

This was also when we updated our label certifications and removed the Certified Vegan logo. The current version of Cordyceps Pro is certified Paleo-Friendly, is vegetarian safe, stimulant-free, and 3rd party lab tested for quality and purity. 

If you'd like to see our full 3rd party testing data (heavy metals, common allergens, microbes, and more) for Cordyceps Pro we also list it here
