History of Cordyceps Sinensis Medicinal Mushroom
From the mountains of Himalaya to your local supplement store, the Cordyceps sinensis mushroom has been used for thousands of years in ancient Tibetan and Chinese medicine. Initially found only at attitudes of 7000 meters in the Himalayan Mountains its unusual history deserves a brief introduction.
Called by locals the “worm-in-winter” caterpillar; it dies every winter on the high plateaus of the mountains in Tibet. From the carcass of the caterpillar a mushroom called the Cordyceps sinensis springs forth in the spring initially using the dead host of the caterpillar as its only nutrient.
This mushroom is an extraordinarily hardy plant from a family of mushrooms with fascinating natural bioactive ingredients and properties found in no other herbs. It is because they live in the severely harsh environments found at high, cold and arid mountains (over 15,000 ft), the Cordyceps sinensis mushroom have evolved a complex chemistry that is found nowhere else in nature.
