Apollo’s Lyre Cordyceps tinctures are hand-crafted in small batches and blessed with healing mantras throughout the entire production process. Both the fruiting bodies and the mycelial biomass (organic brown rice) are used in a double extraction process that extracts all the beneficial constituents of the mushroom. The first extraction is with alcohol, which pulls out the triterpenes (found naturally in plants, having anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-viral compounds) and the second extraction is with hot water, which pulls out the beta-glucans (polysaccharides which support immune health, gut microbiome, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels).
