The name cordyceps in Chinese literally means 'winter bug summer herb.' It is an antlered fungus that grows in insect larvae, usually before the insect's cocoon is formed. The short, sticklike fungus has a fat, full, round, yellow-white cross section. It is gathered in the early summer. Although this fungus is found throughout Japan and in China, as well as on the Atlantic seaboard of the United States, it is very difficult to collect from the wild and so is usually grown in laboratories in tissue cultures.
Medicinal mushroom expert Christopher Hobbs writes that in ancient China, cordyceps was used exclusively in the Emperor's palace because it was very scarce. It was prepared by stuffing it into the stomach of a duck, and then slowly roasting the duck over a low flame. Then the cordyceps was removed, and the duck was eaten for eight to ten days.
Mushroom Cordyceps relieves conditions that traditional Chinese (TCM) associates with the kidneys, including high cholesterol and ringing in the ears. The herb is an that has been used as a cure for impotence. It has also been used in cancer treatment. Cordyceps strengthens the immune system of people who have undergone radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or surgery, and helps to strengthen people who have had long-term illnesses or suffer from exhaustion. Cordyceps is known to boost energy levels and increase endurance in athletes.
Benefits of cordyceps for specific health conditions include the following:
Cordyceps is available in tablets and tinctures. You should not use it if you have a hormone-sensitive disorder such as breast cancer (for women) or prostate cancer (for men). Most manufacturers of cordyceps products also caution that the fungus should be used by adults only, and that people who use anticoagulant medications, asthma inhalers, or immunosuppressant medications for lupus, myasthenia gravis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, or Sjögren's syndrome should consult a health-care provider before using the herb.
During cultivation, folic acid is added to the growth medium of certain mushrooms, resulting in a methyfolate rich supplement. Methylfolate is the biological active form of folic acid.
