  1. Jennifer,

    Great post here!

    I was very intrigued by the Cordyceps. Honestly, I would have never thought anything from a caterpillar would be beneficial to the human body. The fact that it can be beneficial to athletes is definitely something that should be shared within the fitness community. It seems like something Crossfit enthusiasts would be drooling over! Anyway, keep up the good work!

    And Happy Valentines Day to you too!
