Distinctive features of cordyceps military

When collecting military cordyceps on your own, special care should be taken. Due to the fact that the mushroom can be easily confused with its very poisonous compatriots, there is a high probability of making a mistake and, accordingly, getting severe poisoning. So, with what poisonous "relatives" can military cordyceps be confused:
One-sided cordyceps - a yellow mushroom parasitizes on the bodies of dead beetles, which, by the way, are also poisonous. It can be distinguished from military cordyceps by the presence of a cap that grows directly from the body of the host beetle. From each dead beetle, only one hat sprouts, it has no "brothers".

Ophioglossoid cordyceps - the pulp of military turrobium becomes black after being cut. This makes the mushroom very similar to the poisonous black mycelium of a dangerous mushroom. It differs from the edible variety in its truffle type and in that it develops exclusively on caterpillar larvae.
Parasitic cordyceps with gray-ash mycelium. This mushroom is not edible and, accordingly, has no benefit to the human body. Reaching 3,5 cm in height, the fungus begins its development both on pupae and on larvae of any, without exception, insects. Outwardly, it resembles a short process - fingers. Their color is black, and the hat is grayish.

Important! Never start looking for military cordyceps if you are not 100% sure what exactly this fungus looks like and how to distinguish it from its poisonous counterparts!

Appearance of military cordyceps

Military cordyceps is one of the spore varieties of parasitic organisms, in our case - fungi. The leg of the mycelium of the military cordyceps has a cylindrical shape and resembles a process of white or, conversely, bright orange. Cordyceps do not have a hat. The color of the fungus largely depends on where exactly it lives and on which insects it parasitizes. The mushroom is small in size, in the standard it is from 2 to 8 mm, but it is very, very rare to find an eight-centimeter military cordyceps. The fruiting body has a bubbly or tuberous structure.
The cut pulp of the military cordyceps is interesting with a fibrous pulp of a whitish hue. The smell and taste are inconspicuous. The fungus reproduces by spores. Their shape is filiform, cloisonne. Mature spores break up into small cylinders.
Note! The use of the drug should be started only after prior consultation with the doctor.

In many ways, the healing properties of military cordyceps can be explained by its unique chemical composition.
The mushroom contains:
  • amino acids and enzymes;
  • coenzymes;
  • antioxidants;
  • vitamins of groups B, C, PP, K, E;
  • calcium;
  • iron;
  • magnesium.
The fact that the mushroom can still be eaten and, accordingly, it is not poisonous can be explained by the fact that tyrizinase, which is dangerous for the human body, is completely absent in its composition.

Summing up

Taking into account the fact that the properties of a unique mushroom have not yet been studied 100%, the use of biologically active additives with its content should be treated with the utmost care and in no case should the need for prior consultation with the attending physician be ignored.
