How Can Cordyceps Really Provide All Those Benefits?

Do you want the long answer or the short answer? If you want the full scoop and research on exactly how Cordyceps works it's magic you need to read this article –

Ancient Cordyceps in The Modern World by John Holliday

The article provides you with 63 pages of science and research on Cordyceps.

If you want a slightly shorter answer, here are the highlights on how Cordyceps provides health benefits…

Cordyceps is An Adaptogen Herb

Adaptogen herbs are a very special category of herbs. Adaptogens must be nontoxic, cause few if any side effects and help build resistance to all areas of stress that may effect our body. In other words, adaptogen herbs treat our body as a whole and provide health benefits by getting our body in perfect balance.

Organic Cordyceps is classified as an adaptogen herb, so it provides the above health benefits by making sure our body is fully equipped to deal with any stressors we face. Each day we are bombarded with many forms of stress – mental, physical and biological – Cordyceps keeps all those stressors in check.

Cordyceps Increases Cellular Energy Levels – That is a Good Thing!

We don't want to put you to sleep with too much biology here, but here is the quick story. Every cell in our body has these amazing little cellular structures called mitochondria. The mitochondria are responsible for converting the nutrients from the food we eat into energy. The specific substance that the mitochondria creates from the nutrients we eat is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Think of ATP as the fuel that our body needs to run on.

If we are producing ample ATP, our cells have energy and everything in the body is working well. On the other hand, if our Mitochondria is damaged and we are not getting all the ATP that we need, bad things happen in the body. It is like trying to run your car on gas fumes – it just doesn't work well.

Enter our friend Cordyceps! Cordyceps can increase the storage of ATP in the liver and also help repair damaged mitochondria. This combination leads to improved ATP levels in the body and this leads to the body functioning much better.

Cordyceps Also Repairs DNA and Improves Oxygen Capacity

As an adaptogen herb, Cordyceps provides a number of additional benefits. Cordyceps can help repair DNA and increase oxygen capacity. In fact, athletes have seen great success in using Cordyceps to increase oxygen capacity and improve sprinting times. In 1993 at the Chinese National Games the Chinese Women's Track and Field team shattered 9 world records. What did the coach attribute the success to? A cordyceps drink the athletes used that year.

As the world renown Medicine Hunter, Chris Kilham points out, you don't need to be an athlete to enjoy the benefits of Cordyceps...

"In elderly patients, cordyceps improved a number of quality of life parameters, including general physical condition, mental health, appetite, vitality, sexual drive and cardiac function. In effect, cordyceps helps to turn back the aging clock.

Remarkably, no down side or side effects are known for cordyceps. Is there an all-around supplementary super agent? Cordyceps is ample evidence that the answer is yes."
