List of APIs in Cordyceps Militaris

  • Cordycepin

Cordycepin, or 3'-deoxyadenosine, is a derivative of the nucleoside adenosine, differing from the latter by the replacement of the hydroxy group in the 3' position with a hydrogen.

  • Adenosine

Adenosine is a molecule found in all living cells and is involved in a number of important biological processes, including energy production and regulation of blood flow.

The amount of adenosine in cordyceps can vary depending on a number of factors, including the species of Cordyceps, the location where it was grown, and the extraction method used. On average, cordyceps contains about 0.3-0.5% adenosine by weight.

  • Polysaccharides

Polysaccharides are major classes of biomolecules. They are long chains of carbohydrate molecules, composed of several smaller monosaccharides. These complex bio-macromolecules functions as an important source of energy in animal cell and form a structural component of a plant cell.
