Ergogenic and tonic
Cordyceps sinensis is a medicinal mushroom 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 and improves 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, useful in sport performance.
Micotherapy cordyceps contains a high level of cordycepin, a metabolit that favours the inflammation control and together with specific polysaccharides contributes to the correct production of testosterone and steroid hormones. Cordyceps sinensis contains also 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), reduces osteoarticular inflammation, and promotes libido.
