Recommended Daily Dose:
 2 Capsules, 3 times a Day

(Individual Dosage May Vary. Please Your Consult Health Care Professional)


Original Herb and Traditional Use:

      Cordyceps sinensis is the stroma of Cordyceps sinensis (Berk.) Sacc. (Ascomycetes) together with the host larva of Hepialus armoricanus Oberthur (Hepialidae). Originally, it was found only in a small area of Qinghai province of China. Since it is very rare and expensive, Chinese scientists have found a way to cultivate it and make it more accessible through mor than 20 years of intensive study. The cultivated version of this product is made from the dried mycelia powder of Cephalosporium sinensis Chen. sp., isolated from fresh Cordyceps sinensis (Berk) Sacc through submerged fermentation in a liquid medium. It is available in a homogenous, high-quality, and consistently effective form. Its capsule version is easy to administer.

     According to TCM, cordyceps is considered warm-propertied with a sweet, acrid taste. It nourishes the lungs; tonifies the kidneys, vital essence, and vital energy (qi); balances the body; and resolves phlegm. It is used in to treat general debility following prolonged illness, especially in elderly patients.

Chemical Composition:

Among other constituents, cordyceps contains 17 amino acids, 10 trace elements, D-mannitol, and ergosterol.


The Beijing Institute of Materia Medica of the Chinese Medical Academy made extensive pharmacological studies of Cordyceps sinensis and found that the cultivated version has the same chemical components and the same physiological effects as the natural product. Its remarkable therapeutic effects have been confirmed in many controlled, well-designed studies carried out by medical schools in Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, and other provinces of China. Its therapeutic effects on the liver have been extensively studied in China. Its toxicity is very low; in therapeutic doses, virtually no toxicity has been observed. Besides its therapeutic effects on the liver, cordyceps has the following pharmacological actions: immune-system-enhancing, anti-inflammatory, anti-asthmatic, elevation of high-density lipoproteins (HDL), reduction of blood cholesterol, reduction of platelet aggregation, stimulation of blood supply to the heart and brain, anti-neoplastic (anti-tumor), and enhancement of phagocytosis of macrophages.
