Cordyceps Sinensis Benefits

Cordyceps Sinensis.... What?

Cordyceps Sinensis is essentially a fungus. It thrives at high altitudes and is usually found in the mountain ranges of Tibet, Nepal and some parts of China. Closely related to, but not quite a mushroom, Cordyceps Sinensis belongs to the Ascomycetes family.

Cordyceps Sinensis has a long history of use as a medicinal fungus. Highly prized by the Emperors of China for its restorative and energizing properties, a pound of wild Cordyceps was valued at 3 pounds of silver. Pretty expensive for something that isn't quite a mushroom.

Although it has a long history of medicinal use in traditional Chinese medicine, Cordyceps Sinensis is also gaining wide recognition in western medicine, with a whole library of clinical studies published on its powers.

Some of the most widely documented Cordyceps Sinensis benefits include:

  • Increases energy, endurance and stamina levels
  • Increased oxygen capacity
  • Combats weakness and fatigue
  • Boosts lung function and capacity
  • Boosts immune system
  • Improves sexual virility

Given its ability to increase stamina levels, Cordyceps is very popular with endurance athletes such as cyclists, long distance runners, triathletes and swimmers.

It's not all about athletes though. Even for a wrinkly like me, Cordyceps Sinensis is an amazing booster, offering benefits such as:

  • General physical condition
  • Mental health
  • Appetite
  • Vitality
  • Sexual drive
  • Cardiac function

Take the time to read this amazing article by Dr. John Holliday, Ancient Cordyceps in the Modern World.

Dr. John has done an amazing amount of work in the field and is one of the foremost authorities on the subject. He also produces one of the most pure and potent Cordyceps Sinensis extracts, the only type used in Acai Revive.

Cordyceps owes its rejuvenating properties to its adaptogen actions.

An adaptogen is a herb that provides overall health benefits without any harsh side effects. Adaptogens must comply with the following:

  1. Must be nontoxic and cause very few, if any, side effects
  2. Produce nonspecific resistance in the body to all types of stress (physical, chemical and biological)
  3. Produce a normalizing influence on the body

Adaptogens have an overall beneficial effect, not to specific ailments, but general health. Cordyceps, like other adaptogens, keeps the body in balance as a whole, not as a collection of separate parts.

Two of the main actions of Cordyceps are its ability to increase oxygen capacity and increase ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) levels. Studies show that Cordyceps increases lung capacity and leads to better oxygen capacity.

ATP is an interesting subject. Without going into a long winded explanation, ATP is essentially the fuel our body runs on. Produce more ATP than we burn and we experience increased energy levels. Stop producing ATP for a matter of seconds, and it's essentially lights out.

ATP is produced naturally in our bodies and typically we have a reserve of around 100 grams at any given moment. This might sound like a lot, but every single function we undertake, burns energy. Dealing with stress, the function of our organs, coping with illness. All these and more need fuel.

It's this ability to increase ATP levels in our bodies that gives Cordyceps its amazing restorative and energizing properties.

acai capsules testimonialsJan, thanks... When we first became interested in a good quality acai supplement, we made the biggest mistake possible and signed up for one of those so called free trials. After being billed $220 for the free trial we managed to cancel but only after endless phone calls to our bank and credit card company. We are still trying to get our money back.

Luckily for us, we decided to give acai another try and after some research we came across your site. Your advice about the acai sounded spot on so we went ahead and tried Perfect Acai. It totally changed our minds.

More energy and new zest. It's like a kick in the pants (a very welcome kick in the pants mind).

Top marks for recommending a quality product from an ethical manufacturer.

Many Thanks
Kim + Brian
