Cordyceps Side Effects and Warnings

Written by FoundHealth.

Safety Issues

Use of cordyceps does not generally cause apparent side effects. However, comprehensive safety studies have not been reported. In addition, there are two case reports in which cordyceps products contained enough lead to cause lead poisoning. 1 Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, or people with severe liver or kidney disease has not been established.
