Product Description

Cordyceps is a natural fungus that grows on dormant caterpillars in the wintertime. In the spring, the fungus falls to the ground and is ready for harvesting. In this natural state it looks like a plant among all leaves. Cordyceps is harvested as Dongchong Xiacao. After many years of research a method to convert the harvested product into convenient powder for everyday use in capsule form that meets modern needs and requirements has evolved. This product is of natural materials with no synthetic ingredients and has no known side effects, and is suitable for long-term use. Cordyceps is a brown powder with a mildly bitter flavor and a unique strong fragrance.

Cordyceps (Dongchong Xiacao), is a well-known and important ingredient in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is very widely used in both in hospitals as a Chinese Clinical Medicine and as a household remedy. In the Compendium of Materia Medica, the great classic of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Cordyceps is described in detail and is considered potent for strengthening the lungs and fortifying the kidney channels which is responsible for both sexual energy and lower back and joint pains.

The effects of Cordyceps are claimed to include preventing and reducing inflammation, reducing a cough, eliminating phlegm, calming emotions, improving shortness of breath, stimulating sexual functioning, lowering blood cholesterol, increasing the supply of blood to the body, slightly reducing blood pressure, improving the bodies oxygen uptake, and increasing the general functioning of the cell system. It is also used as a standard supplement by a great number of Chinese athletes as a legal way to significantly improve their competitive performance with great effect. Chinese Athletes using this legal supplement have set many world records.

Uses

Cordyceps can strengthen the body's immunity, and treat other conditions resulting from insufficient vitality and compromised immune functions. Cordyceps is widely used for back and joint pains, insomnia, irregular menstruation. Cordyceps is an excellent powerful strengthening tonic for prolonged weakness during convalescence, for individuals with reduced appetite, lowered resistance to infection, problems with the respiratory tract or susceptibility to colds or flu.

The People's Liberation Army Hospital

The Taiwan Pediatric Association

The Veterans General Hospital of Taipei

Cordyceps for Athletes

Athletes looking for a supplement that will give them an edge over their competitors have experimented with everything from amino acids to steroids in their quest to be the best. Chinese athletes have begun using cordyceps supplements to improve their speed and power, and the results are hard to ignore-these athletes are breaking world records and leaving their competitors in the dust. At the Stuttgart World Championships, Chinese women runners took gold medals for the 1,500-, 3,000-, and 10,000-meter events. At the Seventh Chinese National Games the following month in Beijing, these women broke three world records, including cutting 42 seconds off the previous world record for the 10,000 meter race. All drug tests administered to the record-breaking Chinese track team proved negative, and the International Amateur Athletic.

Medicinal Importance

Cordycepin, a compound isolated from the "Caterpillar fungus". The Cordyceps mushrooms have a long history as medicinal fungi. In traditional Chinese medicine, Cordyceps have been used to treat several conditions including cancers for thousand of years. Extracts from both mycelium and fruiting bodies of C. sinensis, C. militaris and other Cordyceps species showed significant anticancer activities by various mechanisms such as, modulating immune system and inducing cell apoptosis. Some polysaccharide components and cordycepin (3'-deoxyadenosine) have been isolated from C. sinensis and C. militaris, which acted as potent anticancer components.

Some work has been published in which Cordyceps sinensis has been used to protect the bone marrow and digestive systems of mice from whole body irradiation. An experiment noted Cordyceps sinensis may protect the liver from damage. An experiment with mice noted the mushroom may have an anti-depressant effect. Researchers have noted that Cordyceps has a hypoglycemic effect and may be beneficial for people with insulin resistance.

Cordyceps was a well kept Chinese secret until the Beijing Olympics in 1993 when the world got to know how cordyceps had boosted the performance of some of the Chinese athletes and enabled them to break world records. However, this wasn’t always a secret, as ancient Chinese texts have always extolled the virtues of cordyceps and outlined its amazing medicinal properties.

Cordyceps sinensis has a number of benefits for overall general health, but there are some specific reasons as to why it is favored by many. Here are some of the benefits provided by cordyceps sinensis:

Improved Immune system – Cordyceps sinensis is commonly used to boost the immune system and make people stronger. Chinese medicine practitioners believe that cordyceps increases the white blood cell count and thus protects the body against viruses and bacteria that cause illnesses. The elderly in Chinese society also use it as a form of ‘super ginseng’ to improve their stamina and health.

Better physical performance – In the context of the Chinese athletes in the Olympics, cordyceps was used to improve their performance and to build up muscle. The results of their performance were there for the whole world to see. Cordyceps helped these sports people by increasing their stamina and energy levels and is now a popular supplement in the sports community.

Improved libido – Here’s good news for those who think they need Viagra. Cordyceps stimulates the production of sex hormones in men and improves sexual function as a result. The regular intake of cordyceps also ensures that female fertility is boosted.

Anti-aging functions – Cordyceps has plenty of antioxidants which prevent the free radicals from oxidizing the cells and thus prevent aging. Also interesting to note is that the composition of cordyceps essentially affects gene clusters and actually reverses the effects of aging. For older patients, cordyceps is a good supplement to keep their minds fresh and revived.

Reducing fatigue - Another amazing function of cordyceps is that it soothes the nervous system and promotes sleep so that people can feel refreshed. It lowers anxiety levels and helps you feel at ease.

Respiratory functions - Cordyceps is an anti-inflammatory substance and can relax the bronchial walls. This makes it a great option for preventing coughs and other respiratory diseases.

Boosting organ performance - Cordyceps ensures that the blood flow to organs such as th e liver and kidneys is increased, thereby making them perform better. Due to this, these organs are able to fight diseases better by keeping chronic kidney disease and hepatitis at bay.

Fighting cancer - Cordyceps affects the development of cell proteins and prevents the formation of mRNA molecules which are essentially required by cancer cells to survive. When these basic needs are eliminated, cancer cells are effectively terminated. It’s interesting to note that cordyceps was used as part of a cancer treatment drug called Cordycepin in the 1950s; however, it did not prove to be that effective.

Side effects

The amount of research that has been conducted on cordyceps is still rather minimal, so it’s definitely not safe for pregnant women or nursing mothers to consume cordyceps. Also, it’s not advisable to give it to children. One of the effects of cordyceps is that it induces weight loss, which might not be viewed as a bad thing by many people. Since cordyceps causes the immune system to become more active, people suffering from autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, or rheumatoid arthritis may find the symptoms to be more pronounced.

Usage

Cordyceps supplements are easily available for those who want the benefits without the hassles. These supplements make it easier to consume the mushroom. However, cordyceps can be converted into a powder as well, which can be used as part of a capsule. Traditionally, cordyceps mushrooms were boiled with chicken and made into a soup. Today, however, it’s easier to sprinkle the brown powder over chicken soup or broth to fortify it immeasurably.
