Cordyceps Sinensis has been appreciated for many centuries in traditional chinese medicine in nature it is found only at high altitudes on the himalayan plateau and is thus difficult to harvest. Because of such difficulties,cordyceps has always been one of the most expensive medicinal herbs.
Its high price had relegated its availability almost exclusively to members of Emperors court and others among the Chinese nobility and historically beyond the reach of the average of the Chinese subject.
Modern cultivation techniques have made the mycelium of this caterpillar borne fungus and more radical available, lowering its cost on the world market, and allowing for more in depth research into its medicinal potential.
Cordyceps has been found to contain a broad range of effective bio active compounds sinensis polysaccharide, cordyceps sinensis acid, cordycepin and adenosine that are beneficial to many human conditions.
