We Care For the Environment

Cordyceps Sinensis is a fungus that grows on the back of a particular caterpillar (the larvae of ghost moths) and has been used as an effective tonic and aphrodisiac in traditional Chinese Medicine.

What is Cordyceps Sinensis?

Cordyceps Sinensis (also hailed as Himalayan Gold) is one of the most well-known mushrooms in the wild fungus family. It is an entomogenous fungus with lots of ethnopharmacological properties and it is found at high altitudes (above 3,500 m in the Himalayan region). This fungus is highly prized in the traditional medicinal system of China, Nepal, and India. At present, it is extensively used in Western countries as a supplement touting many health benefits including, optimal sexual function in men and immune system support. Other common names for Cordyceps include dong chong xia cao in Chinese, tochukaso in Japanese and caterpillar fungus, vegetable wasps and plant worms in English. *

How could Cordyceps Support My Health?

For many years, nature has been the key provider of effective health tonics.These days, we are also discovering and making use of important fungus. One such fungus with enormous healing benefits is Cordyceps Sinensis. *

Cordyceps is generally used to support optimal sexual function, night sweating, blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, tiredness, respiratory support, heart rhythm, and a healthy liver. *

Traditionally, Cordyceps has been used as a aphrodisiac for both men and women. Due to its positive effects on libido, this fungus has attracted a great deal of interest worldwide. In men, it may improve the function of Leydig cells in the testicles vi a sterols which helps support healthy hormone production. Impaired Leydig cells (which indicate low testosterone) are at present affecting a large proportion of middle-aged men. *

A single bioactive compound with steroidogenic potential in this miraculous mushroom is the reason for its exceptional demand. This extract can help support low libido, erectile health, semen volume, lethargy and healthy lean muscle mass. 3g per day for 40 days has shown to significantly boost testosterone levels [11] and also increase the weight (size) of male reproductive organs. *

As women age, it is common for sexual desire to decrease. Cordyceps can help support healthy hormone levels in women as they age, while supporting a positive change in mood and improving libido and desire. Night sweats are also more common in women, and Cordyceps can help by promoting natural hormone levels, bringing sleep and our natural sweat response back into balance. *

Stage IV bladder cancer is also referred to as "metastatic" bladder cancer. There is currently no cure through Western medicine. Research suggests that Cordyceps may support bladder health and as well as a healthy life span. Cordyceps is a natural immune support that can directly activate our innate immune response. It also supports cell homeostasis. Inflammation molecules are suppressed in people with cancer. *

Cordyceps supports the production of natural protector cells. It supports the healthy management of cell mass growth, especially relevant to promoting breast health. Cordyceps induces apoptosis (the management of a healthy cell network) by activating caspases, and may support healthy mitochondrial membrane permeability, specifically in breast cells. The current anti-cancer drugs available in the market are more toxic and possess a multitude of side effects and complications that threaten a patient's overall health and lifespan. Cordyceps is truly Himalayan Gold when it comes to supporting cell health (including live and skin cells) without any adverse side effects. *

One of the extraordinary benefits of consuming Cordyceps is healthy management of plasma cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL (bad cholesterol). A long-term, high-fat diet can cause significant liver damage and Cordyceps can prevent a decrease in blood lipid concentration and helps to improve liver function. *

By continuous consumption of Cordyceps for six weeks, there is an improvement in the stabilization of transplanted kidneys. Chronic kidney disease is a condition where the kidneys gradually lose their function and rapidly leads to deleterious effects in distant organs like the heart and liver. 2g per day of Cordyceps can substantially support healthy kidney function and maintain good health while supporting an active immune system. *

By continuous consumption of Cordyceps for six months, you may support the a healthy response to human immunodeficiency virus-infected cells via the inhibition of reverse transcriptase. As a naturally occurring bacterial support agent, Cordycepin (the bioactive compound in Cordyceps) is very useful in supporting a homeostasis growth of pathogens without adverse effects on the growth of normal gut flora (e.g. lactic acid-producing bacteria).*

Nutritive Value

These are some of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients found in Cordyceps:

Cordyceps is a good source of Vitamin B1, B2, B12, E, and K and essential minerals like K, Na, Ca, Mg, Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn, Pi, Se, Al, Si, Ni, Sr, Ti, Cr, Ga.

Proteins like cadaverine, spermidine, spermine, putrescine, flazin , perlolyrine, cordymin and essential amino acids, such as aspartic acid, threonine, serine, glutamate, proline, glycine, valine, methionine, isoleucine, leucine, tyrosine, phenylalanine, lysine, histidine, cystine, cysteine and tryptophan have been identified in Cordyceps.

Cordyceps is also rich in ergosterol, cerevisterol, α-sitosterol, ergosteryl-3-O-α-D-glucopyranoside, ergosterol peroxide, 3-O-ferulylcycloartenol, daucosterol, stigmasterol, stigmasterol 3-oacetate, fungisterol, cholesterol, campesterol, and dihydro brassicasterol.

Polysaccharides (such as d-mannitol), fatty acids, natural plant phenolics, and nucleosides are the active components in Cordyceps. High concentrations of Cordycepin (3'-deoxyadenosine) is a derivative of the nucleoside adenosine. Guanosine and uridine are also abundant in Cordyceps.

Suggested Usage / Dosage

The recommended dosage for this extract is 2 g daily for a minimum of 9 weeks.

Interactions / Side Effects

People with autoimmune diseases and bleeding disorders are strictly advised not to consume Cordyceps.
