Cordyceps - a rare fungus - is a time-tested immunity booster and a reputed energy and endurance enhancer.
This rare fungus, once reserved only for royalty, still reigns as a potent tonic in Eastern “traditional” medicine. Its future in modern treatments is promising. It contains all the essential amino acids (complete protein), more than 50 types of enzymes and other vital phytonutrients. Since research is limited, we rely on the wisdom of the West for much of what we know about its healing powers.
A formidable fungus
Of all the magical medicinal mushrooms in Mother Nature's plant pantry, the Cordyceps fungus has one of the strangest journeys from spore to survival. It is a parasite that sucks life from caterpillar larva and grows right out of the decayed remains. Something about that struggle causes Cordyceps to create compounds uniquely beneficial to human health. Well-regarded as an immune system supporter and detoxifying catalyst, there's little doubt that we will continue to discover new benefits from this formidable fungus.
