Health Benefits of Cordyceps Mushroom 

Cordyceps mushroom is a genus of ascomycete fungi that includes about 400 described

species. These mushrooms have a long history as rare and exotic medicinal fungi. They

have been a highly regarded cornerstone of traditional Chinese medicine for

centuries; that apparently have a number of far reaching medicinal effects. Cordyceps

mushrooms have been used to treat conditions including respiration and pulmonary

diseases; renal,liver, and cardiovascular diseases; hyposexuality and hyperlipidemia. It is

also used in the treatment of immune disorders and as an adjunct to modern cancer

therapies (chemotherapy, radiation treatment and surgery). C. sinensis and C. militaris

are the most common in use among the Cordyceps genus. Alongside other medicinal

mushrooms, Cordyceps is a powerful immune booster. It stimulates the immune system

by increasing the number and boosting the activity of natural killer cells (a type of white

blood cell), which protect the body from viruses and bacteria. A recent study showed

that Cordyceps increased the levels of these cells by 74% in healthy individuals. A

number of polysaccharides found in Cordyceps are also believed to play an important

role in enhancing the immune system by increasing its defensive power.

Respiratory System: Discovered by the Yak herders of Tibet, Cordyceps has since been

found to enhance cells’ ability to utilise oxygen, thus assisting the herders at high

altitudes where oxygen is in shorter supply. This effect is thought to protect the lungs,

make it easier to breathe and improve respiratory function in general. Extensive studies

in humans have proven it useful for; bronchitis, asthma, coughs and emphysema.

Enhances Athletic Performance: Another benefit of increasing the cells’ ability to utilise

oxygen is the effect it has on athletic performance. This was famously seen at the 1993

Chinese National Games, where the Women’s Field and Track team broke 9 world

records – not just by a little bit but by startling amounts! The governing sports

authorities suspected some performance enhancing drugs had been used, however it

was freely admitted by the coach that the secret to their success was the Cordyceps he

had been giving the team. Recent research has confirmed that Cordyceps usage also

increases cellular ATP levels, the molecule that actually releases energy into the cell. The

double effect of the increased ATP and better oxygen utilisation go hand in hand to

increase energy and stamina, giving more fuel to burn and more oxygen to burn it with.

Promotes Longevity: Powerfully antioxidant, Cordyceps increases the action of

Super-Oxide-Dismutase (SOD), a potent antioxidant in the body. SOD will quench the

free radicals and other toxins that can cause premature aging and degenerative diseases.

Liver & Kidney Health: Cordyceps benefits the liver by increasing the efficient function

of this important organ. Studies have found it normalises liver enzymes, can inhibit

steatohepatitis and retard cirrhosis. There is one particular study consisting of 22

patients stricken with post hepatic cirrhosis. After consuming 6-9 grams of Cordyceps per

day for 3 months, all of the individuals in the study experienced dramatic liver function

improvement. Renal function has also been shown to be improved by supplementation

with Cordyceps – a study with 51 patients suffering chronic renal failure showed that the

administration of 3–5g per day of Cordyceps sinensis significantly improved the kidney

and immune functions of the patients.

Sexual Health: Also known as “Himalayan Viagra” and “The Sexual Potentiator”,

Cordyceps highly influences the release of testosterone by increasing the blood

circulation, thus enhancing erectile function, virility and stamina. It is especially good for

women who may be in the menopause or post-menopausal – this is partly because it

enhances the biosynthesis of the steroid hormones cortisol, estrogen and testosterone.
