Cordyceps General Information
Cordyceps sinensis, also called Chinese caterpillar fungus, Dong Chong Xia Caoor or semitake, is a fungus native to the Tibetan plateau in China. Cordyceps is found in isolated places of southwestern China, especially in the provinces of Tibet, Sichuan, Qinghai, Guise, and Yunnan; however, wild Cordyceps from Tibet are thought to be the best in the world. Well known by ancient physicians as a nourishing tonic, Cordyceps is an herb belonging to the fungus category that was thought to be the most effective cure for all illnesses.

The fungus is parasitic and grows in the moth caterpillar. Spores enter the host, germinate, and ultimately kill the larva. Although species of Cordyceps are seen in Europe and the Americas, only the Chinese form has been used medically. Cordyceps has a long history of use in Chinese medicine. Its traditional roles have been restorative, improving the quality of life, and increasing energy and longevity.

Cordyceps Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Cordyceps is best known for its powerful aphrodisiac effects. Recent studies performed at Beijing Medical University of China and in Japan have shown a high success rate among men suffering from impotence. This herb also has anti-aging and healing properties that are equivalent to ginseng and reishi (a Chinese tree bearing a small round fruit with white juicy pulp). Cordyceps is taken to enhance body strength, improve organic functioning in the body, strengthen the immune system, and promote longevity. Cordyceps also helps stimulate the immune system of the elderly so they are better able to resist illness; and with frequent use, it can also prevent senile disorders. Researchers don't know exactly how cordyceps boosts energy and endurance. They theorize that it may help your body use energy more efficiently by increasing blood flow to your liver and other organs and by improving your oxygen use. Cordyceps's antioxidant activity may alleviate fatigue.

Cordyceps is used to strengthen the body and mind at a fundamental level. It is said to be able to increase the "primary motive force for life activities." Cordyceps is one of the primary herbal substances used in tonic herbalism as an anti-aging agent and for the purposes of rejuvenation. Cordyceps replenishes Yin and Yang Jing, restoring the deep energy expended as a result of excessive exertion, adapting to stress or from aging. It is also a very powerful lung tonic, increasing respiratory capacity and efficiency. And, like other tonic mushrooms, Cordyceps is one of the most potent immune modulating agents known to mankind.

Cordyceps Dosage Information
When you read the product label instructions and follow them you receive the best results.

Many pharmacies in the Chinatowns of large cities sell the cordyceps fungus with the caterpillar. But some American practitioners recommend taking the capsule form found in natural food stores instead. It's less expensive, more widely available, and doesn't carry the risk of lead poisoning that some caterpillar-grown cordyceps does; some fungus harvesters attach lead filament to caterpillar-grown cordyceps to increase its weight and price, says Kenneth Jones, a Vancouver, British Columbia-area author of Cordyceps (Sylvan Press, 1997).

To increase your energy and endurance and fight fatigue, take 2 to 3 g a day with meals. You need to take Cordyceps regularly to get results, and you should start to see benefits in one to two months.

Cordyceps Safety & Interaction Information
Safety in pregnant or nursing women is not known. If you are hypersensitive to mushrooms do not take Cordyceps. Side effects seem to be mild. Patients have reported stomach upset, dry mouth and nausea, which go away with use.

Those who have hormone-sensitive disorders, such as breast cancer or prostate cancer should not use Cordyceps Mushroom, and only adults should use it. People who use any prescription medications, but particularly anticoagulant or immune-suppressant drugs, should consult their physicians before using the herb.
