NOW Foods 750MG Cordyceps Interactions
Cordyceps is used for strengthening your immune system, treat coughs, kidney disorders, high cholesterol and improving liver function. Also may be good for heart patients or keeping your heart healthy.
I started taking this product several years ago for my immune system support and it has been great in “helping” keeping my cholesterol in the proper range. People use various supplements for varied reasons. I am on a lot of heart medications and they drain a lot of energy and vitamins in my body. So my pharmacist recommended this product as a good supplement and it really helped me feel much better. It helps in many ways, but I cant say for certain in what area. I just feel stronger & healthier when I take it. ( In fact i even stopped it for 6 mos. so I can see the difference ).
This brand is recognized as a very good one and well rated.
