Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis) is known as a powerful tonic which gives the body increased vitality and energy. In a Newsweek interview (Sept. 27, 1993) trainer Ma Junren reported that he contributed the breaking of several long distance running world records to their use of the mushroom Cordyceps sinensis. Cordyceps increases vitality and stamina by: • Improving the cellular energy production; • Improving the utilization of oxygen in the body; • Improving the blood flow in the body, making oxygen and nutrients more rapidly available to all parts of the body. WHAT OTHER BENEFITS IS CORDYCEPS KNOWN FOR? In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Cordyceps is famous for its use as an aphrodisiac. Recent research in China and Japan has shown a 64% success rate among men suffering from sexual dysfunction, vs. 24% in the placebo group; According to TCM, Cordyceps maintains healthy blood circulation. Recently, western scientists have demonstrated that Cordyceps drastically lowers cholesterol concentrations.
