Got Energy?

Cordyceps sinensis is a fungus that has traditional medicinal uses dating back more than 2,000 years. It was discovered on the Himalayan Plateau by Tibetan farmers who observed livestock that had eaten the tiny fungus exhibited higher energy levels, higher reproduction rate and exceptionally good health. Since then, Cordyceps sinensis has been used in the history of traditional Chinese medicine to treat illnesses related to lungs and kidneys. It has also been used to treat coughs and improve the immune system. Cordyceps sinensis is used as an aphrodisiac and to enhance energy in Chinese medicine without adverse side effects. This Atypical fungus is believed to improve respiratory function, leaving one feeling naturally energized and ready for activities by optimizing the body's utilization of oxygen.

The natural habitat of Cordyceps sinensis is cold, in high elevation and has an extremely unique proliferation method so it is difficult to reproduce in a laboratory. A species of Cordyceps called Cordyceps militaris, has nearly identical effects and can be grown in laboratories.

There have been reports of surprisingly quick results, some feeling energized upon first dose! Whether young or aging adult, many have experienced the benefits of this fungus. This is one that you will likely never find when foraging mushrooms in the wild, so the next best option is a health food store, co-op or perhaps a Naturopathic health provider. It may come powdered and encapsulated or sold in bulk powder. Cordyceps is often formulated with other potent mushroom powders to create a well rounded supplement.
