Imagine a fungus that can control minds, make its host do what it wants & then ultimately consume it from the inside out - that's exactly what the cordyceps mushroom is - but its not all just horror when it comes to this fungus, its actually one of the most powerful medicinal mushrooms on this planet. Folklore states that 1,500 years ago, Tibetan yakherders noticed something very strange going on with their herds. During the summer months, the austere Tibetan highlands grew thick with tall meadow grasses that made terrific yak-fodder, & so the shepherds took their animals up into the mountains to graze on luscious pastures. It came to the attention of the Tibetans that mountaingrazed animals grew stronger & lived longer than those that consumed the grasses at lower elevations. At first they thought it was the robust mountain grass that was responsible, but then an unknown shepherd stumbled upon the answer - Cordyceps This fungus grew in the high-altitude meadows & yaks that consumed it during their grazing were markedly healthier than their peers Cordyceps is an entomopathogenic fungus that attacks & colonizes many insects that hibernate just below the soil surface during the cold Tibetan winter. By summertime, the fungus consumes the entire insect & shoots out a small, club-shaped fruiting body that emerges from the soil to spread its spores.
Of more than 400 species of Cordyceps discovered, two have become the focus of health research: Cordyceps sinensis & Cordyceps militaris. Cordyceps mushrooms are filled with powerful phytochemicals - of particular interest are adenosine, cordycepic acid, ophiocordin & finally the nucleoside, cordycepin. The protein bound polysaccharides CP-1, CP-2 as well CO-N, SN-C & CO-1 have also been identified. One of cordyceps main claims to fame is its unmatched ability to increase energy & combat fatigue - it does this by increasing production of the molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is essential for delivering energy to the muscles. This also improves the way our bodies use oxygen, especially during exercise. Coryceps also has a wonderful ability to increasing libido & sexual function, it highly influences the release of testosterone, increase blood circulation, & also enhance erectile function, virility & stamina
It is especially good for women who may be in the menopause or post-menopausal - this is partly because it enhances the biosynthesis of the steroid hormones cortisol, estrogen & testosterone. Cordyceps has immunostimulating & immunoregulating activity, notably its polysaccharides have been found to stimulate phagocytotic function & macrophage activity. Many studies have also found that normal T-cells are not affected by cordyceps while defective Tcells are - thus validating its ability at boosting suppressed immune function The protein bound polysaccharides have been found to have anti tumor activity, CO-N & SN-C both stimulate the immune system - CO-N has a direct cytocindal action on many tumors including ehrlich carcinoma, sarcoma 180 & leukemia to name a few Cordyceps has also been proven to be a tonic for lung & kidney health, it increases sperm production, stimulates the endocrine system, & has owerful antibacterial activity.
