Oriveda's focus is on selling well-researched medicinal mushroom extracts of superior quality.

As a business we are focused on providing our customers with the best possible products, value-for-money and service. We are serving customers in over 85 countries.

Our business is based on common sense and pragmatism. We feel that every claim of quality should be backed up with hard facts.

All our products are tested by independent objective laboratories, not just for safety but in particular for active ingredients. You don't have to take our word for it when we claim premium quality - you can verify it. We share our test reports with our customers.

• Therapeutically speaking, ORIVeDA extracts are the most powerful extracts available worldwide, with guaranteed levels of the most important bioactive components and the highest bioavailability possible. And this is not just a marketing statement.

Our authorized supplement facts labels and Google make it easy to compare our products with others. As said, our Certificates of Analysis from independent third party laboratories are available here.

• Since we started as a business we have always emphasized the use of extracts, being the only reliable way to accomplish therapeutic effects.

Already in 2012 we started specifying beta-glucans (the main active ingredient of most medicinal mushrooms) on our supplement fact labels. This was a time when 95 % of mushroom supplements had zero specifications (not being extracted) and the rest mentioned 'polysaccharides' at best, a broad term covering a lot of non-bioactive compounds, in the core unsuitable as a quality marker. Currently beta-glucans are widely accepted as a quality marker, using an AOAC-validated test method.

• We are the first ones specifiying cordycepin as a quality marker for Cordyceps and the first and only ones to specify the NGF-promoting compounds for which Lion's Mane is known - the terpenes. In short, we have set and pointed out quality standards since we started. This approach makes it easy for consumers to choose the right stuff and they're less likely to be deceived by marketing tricks. Make sure to check our FAQ for additional details.

• The value-for-money you get with our products is excellent. Not only are our prices often lower than others, but the level of bioavailable active ingredients in our extracts is also much higher, in some instances over three times higher than the best of the rest. So, instead of spending $ 90 on “product X” you only have to spend $ 30 on our product for the same therapeutic potential.
And on top of that, as said before, we guarantee the bioavailability of the bioactives; your body can absorb and digest them 100%, so the therapeutic potential is maximal. And all these claims can be verified - objective third party test results are available here.

• In SE-Asia medicinal mushrooms have been used for many centuries. These countries therefore contain probably the best-informed and most critical consumers. We are proud to be able to claim that we are currently the only Western company selling mushroom extracts on a large scale to this region.
• A lot of the research on which our products' reputation is built is available and can be downloaded for free from the resources-section of our site.

• We ship to almost all countries in the world, except warzones.With only a few exceptions, shipping is free for website orders, worldwide. We usually ship orders the next day.

• We offer maximum personal service: we are online 7 days a week and your questions will be answered in great detail. Those questions are important: they help us develop new ideas and products. Keep them coming!

• Our newsletter (2 - 3 times p/year) is offering more than just updates and marketing. We often include complete monographs related to our product-line and include discounts for subscribers. Register today!

ORIVeDA 's Cordyceps C+

Oriveda C+ over 1.3% cordycepin

Cordyceps contains several unique bioactive compounds not found in noteworthy amounts in other mushrooms. Because of that it can be considered a league of its own.

In Cordyceps C+ the emphasis is on exactly those compounds that are unique for Cordyceps; cordycepin, adenosine and several other nucleosides. Not on beta-glucan; for beta-glucan (immune support) Oriveda has developed a dedicated product, the CCCE® beta-glucan formula.

If you buy a Cordyceps supplement because it lists a high level of beta-glucans (or polysaccharides) you are not spending your money wisely. It's logical that a premium Cordyceps supplement should specify Cordyceps-specific marker compounds.

A Cordyceps supplement with a high level of glucans will be low on the Cordyceps-specific, really interesting compounds… they cannot co-exist in the same supplement in high levels.

Since the 15th century Cordyceps has always been heralded as being a revitaliser and is traditionally used often in case of lung-related health-problems in particular.

The compound in Cordyceps that is mainly responsible for these properties is cordycepin (3’-deoxyadenosine), a nucleoside. Research has investigated cordycepin and its potential effects in depth - this includes immunomodulatory, anti-cancer, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and the anti-microbial potential of cordycepin. It is also included in HIV-research.

The chemical structure of Cordycepin is very similar to ATP (Adenosine-Tri-Phosphate) and pure adenosine (which is also present in Cordyceps). ATP is the most important energy provider in our body; it must be present for muscles to contract. To be blunt: no ATP means no heartbeat!

Among the most significant known effects of ATP are increased blood flow and vasodilation (opening up your blood vessels); and increasing e.g. the ability to absorb oxygen in the blood stream via the lungs. This results in more energy and vitality.

The production of ATP in the body is decreasing with age, and research showed that supplementation with synthetic ATP has no effect. Now this is where it gets interesting; recent research papers confirm the old belief that Cordyceps improves vitality. Put in scientific terminology: it enhances cellular energy in the form of ATP. A side effect is that it also appears to improve libido in both men and women.

Cordyceps supplementation with a high level of cordycepin will help to restore and maintain vitality and increase physical endurance. For the elderly and athletes taking such a supplement is worth considering.

The CS-4 mycelium strain of Cordyceps sinensis is the most researched form (over 98% of all research) and was found to be the most potent and effective strain (therapeutically speaking), even out-classing wild natural Cordyceps in terms of the presence of nucleosides such as adenosine.

Although cordycepin is present in Cordyceps sinensis CS-4 the quantities are very low (± 0.1 % at best). In Cordyceps militaris, a related species the level of cordycepin is much higher, but only in fruiting bodies.

In Cordyceps militaris the cordycepin nucleoside has been the main subject of research in the past decades. It is an important bioactive compound and a marker for Cordyceps militaris's quality.

Oriveda C+ is a combination of 66.6 % Cordyceps CS-4 mycelium extract and 33.4% Cordyceps militaris (CM) fruiting body extract. The level of cordycepin is > 1%, making it the most potent Cordyceps extract currently on the market, outclassing the best of the rest at least 3 times. We have objective third party lab tests to prove this claim.

Summarizing: Cordyceps C+ combines a premium CS-4 mycelium extract with a premium Cordyceps militaris fruiting body extract. The outcome is a blend that includes the best of both worlds. It is also the first of its kind that is optimised for Cordyceps-specific compounds instead of the usual polysaccharides or beta-glucans.

When compared against run-of-the-mill Cordyceps products the revitalising and libido-enhancing potential has improved in particular, together with the kidney- and lung-protective properties.


NB - Some American producers are stating that CS-4 is not genuine Cordyceps sinensis (suggesting it is best avoided).

However, even if it is true it is irrelevant, as all major research over the past 40 years has been performed with the CS-4 strain, and those research results speak for themselves - they are excellent.

The reputation of Cordyceps sinensis as a dietary supplement is based almost exclusively on the CS-4 research. Their 'genuine' product however has a research track-record of zero, and on top of that is not extracted, making therapeutic effects unpredictable at best because the bioavailability is unpredictable in such products.
