    Cordyceps sinensis.
    Its beneficial effects on the human organism




    Cordyceps sinensis is classified as a “higher fungus”. It grows naturally in Tibetan highlands, about 4,000 meters above sea level. When during the warm season a Cordyceps spore falls onto the body of a particular butterfly larva (Hepialide), then it germinates during spring time. First the fungus grows using the larva as its source of nutrients, later, when from below the ground it reaches the surface, it connects to the roots of grass growing on the Tibetan plateaus and starts taking nutrients from them. Due to the extreme climatic conditions in Tibet and a reduced level of oxygen in those high elevations, Cordyceps possesses an amazing capacity for storing energy.

    In the Eastern hemisphere Cordyceps has always been considered as the most valuable of all plants. In the past Cordyceps was especially valued by emperors and their families. In China they used to call Cordyceps "a gift from God" and "wonder talisman" because none of the other plants have more healing properties than Cordyceps.

    Cordyceps serves as a potent antioxidant. It contains beta-carotene (provitamin A), vitamins E and C, many minerals, selenium, zinc, co-enzyme Q 10, immunomodulating polysaccharides, and many other important and precious substances.
    Cordyceps contains 77 micro- and macronutrients, more than 80 types of enzymes, essential amino acids, and unsaturated fatty acids. Scientific research has shown that due to its unique polysaccharide complex Cordyceps has a very strong favorable biological effect on the immune system.
    Cordyceps is the only plant on this planet which, besides the specific protection from cancer and its dampening effect on its progression, has also an anti-tumor effect (Yoshida and co-authors, J., 1989; Nakamura, K. and co-authors, 1999).

    Cordyceps increases the body’s resistance against various internal and external influences and shows strong anti-allergic properties.
    It has been observed that use of Cordyceps products induces certain self-purifying mechanisms within the human body, with toxic substances naturally being eliminated from the physiology, such as intestinal poisons, drug residues, radionuclides, heavy metals, salts, and others.
    Cordyceps is a natural antibiotic and inhibits the pneumococci, staphylococci, streptococci, and many other germs from multiplying. It also affects a variety of viruses, including adenovirus, influenza, hepatitis, herpes (cold sores), and atypical pneumonia.
    Cordyceps products, as part of the combination therapy, are given to people carrying HIV.

    Cordyceps has a powerful impact on protozoa (chlamydia, urea plasma, trichomonas, etc.), helminthes (worms), and fungi.
    It has been shown that Cordyceps treats cardiovascular diseases effectively. It helps in regulating the blood flow, makes the blood vessel walls become more elastic, and reduces the risk of clogging of blood vessels. In addition, it normalizes the micro flora of the skin, throat and respiratory tract. Cordyceps normalizes kidney function and regulates metabolism.

    It is very much recommended to use Cordyceps products if you don't want an acute inflammation turn into a chronic disease.
    When used in combination with conventional medications, Cordyceps often significantly increases the effectiveness of such conventional treatments and reduces potential side effects. Cordyceps products rejuvenate the entire body and its system functions and triggers selfregulating mechanisms.
    Cordyceps is widely used as a means for prevention of disease and promotion of health.
