How Cordycep mushrooms can help you

Powerful Immune Booster

Cordyceps stimulates the immune system by increasing the number and boosting the activity of natural killer cells (a type of white blood cell) by up to 74%, which protect the body from viruses and bacteria.

Sexual Health

Also known as “Himalayan Viagra”, Cordyceps highly influences the release of testosterone by increasing the blood circulation, thus enhancing erectile function, virility and stamina. Good for women who may be in the menopause, this is because it enhances the biosynthesis of the steroid hormones cortisol, estrogen and testosterone.

Respiratory System

Discovered by the Yak herders of Tibet, Cordyceps has since been found to enhance cells’ ability to utilise oxygen, thus assisting the herders at high altitudes where oxygen is in shorter supply. Extensive studies in humans have proven it useful for; bronchitis, asthma, coughs and emphysema.

Liver & Kidney Health

Studies have found it normalises liver enzymes, can inhibit steatohepatitis and retard cirrhosis. A particular study consisting of 22 patients stricken with post hepatic cirrhosis. After consuming 6-9 grams of Cordyceps per day for 3 months, all of the individuals in the study experienced dramatic liver function improvement.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Cordyceps has been widely used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. Of the many benefits associated with this weird and wonderful fungus, it was mainly used to protect the liver, improve kidney function, alleviate symptoms of respiratory illness and to enhance libido. It was also recommended as a tonic for “all illness”, with the ability to improve energy, endurance, stamina, appetite and disrupted sleep patterns.

Enhances Athletic Performance

Another benefit of increasing the cells’ ability to utilise oxygen is the effect it has on athletic performance. This was famously seen at the 1993 Chinese National Games, where the Women’s Field and Track team broke 9 world records. The governing sports authorities suspected some performance enhancing drugs had been used, it was freely admitted by the coach that the secret to their success was the Cordyceps he had been giving the team. The double effect of the increased ATP and better oxygen utilisation go hand in hand to increase energy and stamina, giving more fuel to burn and more oxygen to burn it with.

Promotes Longevity

Powerfully antioxidant, Cordyceps increases the action of Super-Oxide-Dismutase (SOD), a potent antioxidant in the body. SOD will quench the free radicals and other toxins that can cause premature aging and degenerative diseases.

Folklore and History

According to legend, yak herders in the Himalayas of Tibet and Nepal noticed that when their yaks grazed on a certain mushroom, they suddenly become very energetic and playful. The herders investigated what they were eating and the strange and mysterious Cordyceps caterpillar-mushroom was discovered.

The first written record of Cordyceps was made during the Tang Dynasty (620AD). It quickly became prized by the ruling emperors of China for its healing and longevity properties. Physicians of the Ming dynasty are said to have used this fungus to make powerful tonics. From the 1400’s onwards, Tibetan scholars wrote extensively about Cordyceps.

Cordyceps were brought to Europe by a French priest – residing as a guest of the Chinese Emperor, he was introduced to Cordyceps and their revitalizing powers. In 1757 Cordyceps made its first appearance in a European medical text – New Compilation of Materia Medica. From that point on, scientists have been fascinated by the health properties of Cordyceps.

Cordyceps Sinensis is just one member of the massive Cordyceps family, comprising of over 400 members. All Cordyceps are endoparasitoids, meaning the spores infect a host insect, taking over the body, culminating in the fruiting body sprouting from the insects brain. Each species will only invade a single species of insect. Cordyceps Sinensis invades the larvae of the Chongcao bat moth which hibernates for the winter underground in a cocoon. Its mycelium mummifies the body of the larvae whilst it is asleep and when the spring comes a single thin stroma sprouts from the head and pushes upwards like a single blade of iridescent blue grass. Land rich in Cordyceps can apparently be easily identified – that’s where the yaks prefer to graze!
