3. Eliminate waste and toxins

Damaged kidneys fail to filter excessive wastes and toxins, leading to a high level of creatinine and urea nitrogen in the blood. Cordyceps can eliminate the immune complexes on the glomerular filtration membrane so as to increase the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). As a result, excessive creatinine and urea nitrogen in the blood can be filtered efficiently.

Apart from the above benefits, cordyceps can also help lower high blood pressure and reduce the risk of complications caused by high potassium in the blood. You should take it under your doctor’s guidance based on your own condition.
