Cordyceps has to be one of my favorite Herbs and with all of its powerful health modulating capabilities I am sure it will become one of yours to!
In 1993, three Chinese athletes set new world records in the National Games in China. Their coach attributed their success to intensive training and supplementation with the Cordyceps mushroom.
This story may sound to good to be true but scientific tests have shown that Cordyceps significantly increases maximal oxygen uptake and anaerobic threshold. Not only does it improve endurance and increase energy levels but it is also a adaptogen enabling the body to cope with stress more efficiently.
And there is more! Cordyceps also improves the immune system by increasing lymphocytes and natural killer cells and the production of interleukin. It is being used in the treatment of cancer due to its potent anti-tumor properties.
