Cordyceps Sinensis has a long history of rare and exotic medicinal mushrooms used in Chinese medicine, which is considered to be the elixir of youth and longevity. It grows in the high mountains of south-western China and Tibet and in those regions it is considered to be a natural gift, a talisman that has been created only for Chinese emperors.
Cordyceps Sinensis has the ability to increase the degree of supplying oxygen and its utilization in the cells and thus leads to an improvement of general condition of the body, strength and endurance. A sufficient amount of oxygen in the cells contributes to healthy life and longevity of a person, while the lack of oxygen causes weakness and frequent illness. It is considered that Cordyceps Sinensis has immune-modulatory effect, it increases stored cellular ATP and thus activates energy reserves and prevents exhaustion. It is most commonly used by athletes as it can lead to improvement of performances, increase of endurance and energy, without harmful effects nor is prohibited by doping tests.
This mushroom has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine as a medicine for male and female sexual dysfunction, such as hypolibidinism and impotence. One of the potentially greatest benefits of Cordyceps Sinensis is its anti-tumour effect. An increasing number of oncologists worldwide recommend and use Cordyceps as an adjunct to chemotherapy, radiation and other conventional and traditional methods of cancer treatment, in order to soothe the effects of therapy.
