One of the more well-known medicinal mushrooms, cordyceps have been used in traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicines for their immune strengthening and natural energy giving properties, they also have very few if any, adverse effects.

Interesting Historical notes: Over 1500 years ago, the meadow region of the Tibetan Himalayan Mountains were covered with a variety of grasses and flowering plants. Cattle and sheep grazed in this area and particularly drawn to an unusual mushroom-like grass. In time, the herdsmen began to see a marked difference in the strength and agility of their herds.

They were curious about the ingredients of this grass and wondered if perhaps that was the cause of the increased vigor and vitality of the animals. Word spread quickly and a few traditional Chinese doctors began gathering some of this grass to treat their patients. The grasses proved to have many medicinal functions for a variety of diseases for which previously they were unable to treat. It is believed that this is how Cordyceps was discovered.

Word of the unusual and somewhat mysterious effects spread worldwide and passed from generation to generation. More than 1000 years later, the Ming Dynasty’s court physicians began a study of the Cordyceps formula and eventually improved on its usage. Cordyceps became a respected drug. It was named ‘Dong Chong Xia Cao Tochukas’, or winter-worm summer grass.

Today, after studies have been conducted with modern techniques, we know that Cordyceps is a parasite which invades the body of caterpillars and eats the soft tissue.
