Cordyceps

“The Anti-Aging Treasure”

Cordyceps is a premium booster for the nervous system, metabolism, and immunity. It helps to increase the oxygen intake ability of red blood cells. This property will improve physical performance, reduce fatigue and oxidative stress whilst increasing respiratory capacity and overall energy.

How

Cordyceps

can help you:

Cordyceps offers a wide range of health benefits. Research has shown its powerful effect to improve kidney, adrenal, brain, pancreatic and hormonal health. For athletes and fitness junkies, this herb should be the staple adaptogen, as it trumps almost every other option.

Athletic Performance

  • A few animal studies have shown cordyceps feeding to increase the ratio of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to inorganic phosphate (Pi) in the liver by 45-55% - an effect that may be viewed as beneficial in terms of energy state and potential for performance enhancement (1).
  • Mice fed cordyceps and subjected to an extreme low oxygen environment, were able to utilize oxygen more efficiently (30-50% increase), better tolerate acidosis and hypoxia (lack of oxygen) and live 2-3 times longer than a control group (2).
  • A number of Chinese clinical studies, primarily in elderly patients with fatigue, cordyceps-treated patients reported significant improvements in their level of fatigue, ability to tolerate cold temperatures (3).
  • In double-blind, placebo controlled trial in humans, cordyceps has significantly improved aerobic capacity in healthy elderly volunteers in cycling ergometer tests and significantly increased maximal oxygen intake and total ventilation capacity during incremental work-rate cycling (4).

Nootropic/Brain Performance

  • One of the key constituents was shown produce a Rapid and Robust Antidepressant Effect via Enhancing Prefrontal AMPA Receptor Signaling Pathway (5).
  • Results suggest that Cordyceps may elicit an antidepressant-like effect by affecting the adrenergic and dopaminergic systems, but not by affecting the serotonergic system. This therefore means Cordyceps may enhance aspects of motivation and attention (6).
  • Cordyceps polypeptide may improve learning and memory by scavenging oxygen free radicals, preventing oxidative damage, and protecting the nervous system (7).
  • Cordyceps alleviates short-term memory impairment. It showed therapeutic effects through inhibiting cerebral ischemia-induced cell death in the brain (8).

Longevity

  • Improved insulin sensitivity due to cordyceps has been demonstrated in both normal rats and humans. These effects are presumably mediated by the polysaccharide fraction of cordyceps, and multiple polysaccharides from cordyceps which reduce blood sugar in diabetic mice have been identified (9).
  • Cordyceps prolongs the lifespan of fruit flies through an anti-oxidative stress pathway involving the upregulation of SOD1 and CAT activity and the inhibition of lipofuscin accumulation in the brain (10).
  • Cordyceps inhibits oxidative damage and reduces inflammatory cytokine levels. In addition, it possess anti-inflammatory activities, coupled with strong analgesic properties (11).
  • One month of Cordyceps consumption resulted in signficantly lower triglycerides and total cholesterol. The production of HDL cholesterol increased ± 30% after treatment with Cordyceps. This is very interesting, as high HDL levels reduce the risk for heart diseases (12).

Cordyceps has been a long-term staple in my life for many years. It consistently improves my immune system, energy levels and workout tolerance. I find it can make me much more decisive, and also improves libido (no surprise here). I have tested various Cordyceps extracts, and this one is definitely the strongest and fastest acting.
