Cordyceps came under international spotlight when Chinese long-distance runners broke many world records in 1993. They attributed their wins to taking Cordyceps, an herb believed to increase physical endurance, decrease fatigue and improve general health.

Cordyceps Sinensis, also known as dong cong xia cao (winter worm, summer grass) contains many active ingredients. These include cordycepin, cordycepic acids, polysaccharides, adenosine, amino acids and ergosterol. The synergistic effects of these components make Cordyceps Sinensis a potent mushroom.

Cordyceps has positive effects on the heart, lungs and kidneys. It also greatly increases the amount of powerful antioxidant enzymes in the body. In addition, it can significantly inhibit tumor growth and elevate immunocytes’ (cell contributing to immune system function) activity, protecting the body against cancer.
