Cordyceps sinensis is a medicinal fungus with a wide range of uses; originating in the Himalayas, it grows at altitudes above 3,000 metres and has been used in China for approximately two thousand years. In traditional Chinese medicine, it is considered a powerful tonic for the kidneys, home to our vital energy.


Cordyceps has always been considered one of nature’s most powerful remedies. In traditional Chinese medicine, it was used for immune system support and to aid recovery in situations of convalescence, even after severely debilitating illnesses.
It is now considered an anti-ageing, adaptogenic tonic that improves cellular energy use and production, and aerobic cellular metabolism, giving the body greater resistance.
Cordyceps Sinensis contains proteins, peptides and all essential amino acids, polysaccharides and glycoproteins with immunomodulatory effects, sterols, including ergosterol (vitamin D precursor), nucleoside analogues, polyunsaturated fatty acids, vitamins, including B1, B2, B12, E and K, and various minerals. Numerous clinical studies have shown that Cordyceps improves liver function (activation of the Kupffer cells), and regulates liver enzyme levels and the lipid profile.

Physiological effect:

Researchers at Aloha Medicinals started to study growing methods about five years ago. The aim of the project was to achieve natural growth conditions in the laboratory, in order to maintain the characteristics and properties that make it so effective.
Biochemical tests carried out by the Integrated Biomolecule Inc. laboratory in Tucson (Arizona), showed that the Cordyceps produced by Aloha Medicinals contains up to 4 times the concentration of nucleotides and 5 times the concentration of all the active ingredients of the wild harvested species (Cleaver P, Holliday JC, Powers ML. Novel method for growing Cordyceps sinensis on a substrate and novel method for hybridizing different strains of Cordyceps sinensis. United States patent application US 20060014267. 2006).
