Four Sigma Foods 101 – Cordyceps

Cordyceps is a rare and exotic medicinal fungus, with a wide range of therapeutic uses in traditional Chinese medicine. It is found in the wild only high on the Himalayan Plateau – making it difficult to harvest and quite expensive. The medicinal value of cordyceps has been recognized in China and the Orient for more than 2,000 years. The first known written record of its use comes from China, dating back to 620 A.D., during the Tang Dynasty.

In the West today, cordyceps is most widely used by two groups – athletes and the elderly – to increase energy and reduce fatigue.

At the Chinese National Games in 1993, China’s women’s track and field team broke nine world records, all by substantial margins. These included the 10,000-meter run, accomplished in 29:31:78. The remarkable feat raised speculations that prohibited substances had been used, but the results of rigorous testing were all negative. The team’s coach attributed the success to their use of cordyceps.

Why to Use Cordyceps

Traditional Chinese medicine calls for cordyceps in treating many different ailments, including respiratory and pulmonary diseases, renal, liver and cardiovascular diseases, and hypo-sexuality. Cordyceps is believed by many to be a sovereign remedy for weakness and fatigue; it is often used as a general rejuvenator, to increase vital energy during recovery from serious illness.

In the West today, cordyceps is most widely used by two groups – athletes and the elderly – to increase energy and reduce fatigue.

Like most medicinal mushrooms, cordyceps is also believed to possess anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-cancer properties. It has seen increasing use in cancer treatments, as an adjunct to chemotherapy, radiation therapy and other conventional and traditional methods.

How to Use Cordyceps

Cordyceps is traditionally taken in tea, or eaten whole – by itself, or as an ingredient in various dishes. Today, most Western users take cordyceps in capsule form, or as an alcohol tincture.
