According to statistics published in the Oxford Journal of Reproductive Health, infertility in South Africa has regional prevalence rates of 30-50%. If after 1 year of unprotected sexual intercourse, a couple is unable to conceive a child, they are considered infertile.

Both men and women experience infertility for a wide variety of reasons. If you and your partner have considered expensive fertility treatments, there is a natural therapy you should try first. Cordyceps medicinal mushrooms have been used to treat infertility in men and women for centuries with very effective results!

Causes of Fertility Problems


Common causes of infertility in men include erectile dysfunction, low sperm count, poor sperm motility, abnormal sperm shape, hormone deficiencies, varicocele, and sexually transmitted diseases. Some overlooked causes of infertility in men include lifestyle factors such as obesity, smoking, and alcoholism.


Common causes of infertility in women include endometriosis, hormone imbalance, anovulation, thyroid dysfunction, hypothalamus dysfunction, pituitary gland malfunction, fallopian tube dysfunction, colitis, and sexually transmitted diseases. Lifestyle also contributes to female infertility. These factors include sedentary lifestyle, obesity, smoking, and alcoholism.

Both men and women may also experience infertility due to a condition called gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley and those who are intolerant to it experience chronic inflammation, gastrointestinal problems, sinus problems, thyroid dysfunction, and unexplained infertility.

Treat infertility with Cordyceps

Another commonly-overlooked factor of infertility in both men and women is endocrine disruptors in the environment. For example, the BPA in plastic and the phthalates in cosmetics and chemical cleaning products can interfere with normal hormone function, leading to infertility.

Medicinal mushrooms are adaptogens, meaning they increase your body’s natural resistance to the everyday stressors of life.

Treat Fertility Problems with Cordyceps Medicinal Mushrooms

Medicinal mushrooms are functional foods that work as medicine in your body. They provide an immune system boost with a rich dose of free-radical fighting antioxidants. Cordyceps medicinal mushrooms have been used specifically for their unique ability to support healthy libido in both men and women. It has also shown to regulate growth hormone production and increase the quality of both sperm and egg count.

Cordyceps medicinal mushrooms can help assist both you and your partner to increase your chances of conception. In addition to using the medicinal mushrooms, it’s important to look into any dietary or lifestyle factors that may be making conception difficult.

Quit smoking, cut back on drinking, and clean up your diet. Too many processed, pre-packaged and convenience foods put chemicals into your body that interfere with normal hormone function. Instead, eat plenty of natural and organic foods, specifically fruit and vegetables and get plenty of exercise.  Even if your workout consists of just a walk around the block as a couple, you’ll be improving your health one step at a time.

Also, take steps to clean up your home environment. Trade in your chemical air fresheners, cosmetics, and cleaning supplies for natural, organic alternatives. The less hormone-disrupting synthetic chemicals in your environment, the better.

Making a few dietary and lifestyle changes along with adding Cordyceps medicinal mushrooms can give you the libido and fertility support you both need to finally conceive that little bundle of joy.
