Cordyceps Benefits

Nowadays Cordyceps Sinensis is something new, special, and hardly familiar to the Western world. Scientists have not managed to study it properly for the time being. The greatest source of information about Cordyceps is its motherland – China, where researchers have already been working for some time on the unclosing the secrets and mysteries of the fungus.

The further statements about health benefits of the mushroom are the results of the numerous Chinese trials of Cordyceps; therefore, they are at first hand.

Enhancing and strengthening of the immune system. Cordyceps is supposed to increase the number of the Natural Killer Cells, which are responsible for the body defense against viruses and bacteria. Some trials show that the fungus works effectively in the leukemia stricken individuals.

Improving sexual function in men and increasing libido by stimulating the production of sex hormones. Cordyceps may also be a means for fighting female infertility.

Building muscles and improving physical performance. Those Chinese athletes, who use Cordyceps, tend to show better results than the other sportsmen.

Providing anti-aging and fatigue reducing effects. The fungus works as an antioxidant and increases cellular formation, especially in the elderly patients. It also promotes more restful sleep, soothes the nervous system, and reduces anxiety, thus working as a sedative.

Improving the respiratory function. Cordyceps shows good results in fighting against cough, chronic bronchitis and asthma, since it relaxes bronchial walls and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Enhancing cellular oxygen uptake. This benefits all the body systems, giving them more energy and vitality.

Benefiting vascular system by improving circulation, regulating blood pressure, and strengthening the heart muscle.

Protecting liver and kidneys. Cordyceps improves blood flow to these organs (as well as to the others), which results in their better activity and ability to fight the diseases, including Hepatitis and chronic kidney disease.

Some people may think of the fungi as of something disgusting and ugly. However, the mushrooms do not look so when in a tablet or a capsule. Moreover, Cordyceps will definitely become even attractive to those, who have no trust in the pharmaceutical drugs any more. 2-4 grams (some people consume even up to 9 grams) of the mushrooms per day – it is nor an exorbitant price for the health improvement, which may become obvious as soon as in 1-2 months.

Cordyceps is said to be safe and has no side effects. However, pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as children are not recommended to use it, since no studies have been conducted in such persons.

Luckily, time, progress, and the growing demands of the modern society make the scientists keep on working on the unsolved problems and open questions of today. That gives us hopes that soon Cordyceps will become an open book easy to read and understand for all the people.

So, you're eating a fungus that, in Brazil, takes over the brains of ants and spreads through bite and kills the host. Basically, you're eating zombie-ant fungus.

I feel like I got under control, it is not completely better, but huge improvement. Also I don't get sick with colds or flu and feel physically stronger. Did anyone hear about any other herbs that could improve Meniere's? I am not sure if I can buy even better quality somewhere. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I hold an M.S. in Oriental Medicine. Cordyceps pinyin name is "dong chong xia cao". Japanese name: "tochukaso". Korean name: "tongch'unghach'o". In chinese medical terms it augments the kidneys and tonifies the yang. Is good for impotence, sore and weak lower back and lower extremities caused by Kidney yang deficiency. It strengthens kidney yang & lung yin, gets rid of phlegm, can be used for chronic cough, wheezing, or consumptive coughs with bloody sputum. It strengthens both yin and yang so therefore it is safe to use for a long period of time. If you want to mix it with another herb, better to consult a chinese herbalist. Thanks.

If you have cancer or virus infections (HHV6, EBV etc) you should be taking the below listed mushrooms.
1. Coriolus Versicolor - 6 tablets x 500 mg for 1st 15 days and then 3 tablets x 500 mg there after.

2. Cordyceps Sinensis - 6 tablets x 500 mg for 1st 15 days and then 3 tablets x 500 mg there after.

If your not seeing results it may be the brand you are taking. I would stick with GNC or a trusted brand since the products are not FDA approved....Hope this helps
