High quality Cordyceps Sinensis online store? There are hundreds of different species of Cordyceps found all over the world. There are two main species, however, that are of interest for human consumption- Cordyceps sinensis and Cordyceps militaris. There is also an effective version of Cordyceps mycelium grown in large liquid vats known as CS-4 that is worth learning about. Cordyceps sinensis is the most well known species, famous for its powerful medicinal properties. When people use the term “Cordyceps” they are often referring to sinensis. It is commonly called the caterpillar fungus, due to the fact that is uses the insect as a host before eventually fruiting from its head. You can clearly see the caterpillar in images of harvested sinesis.

Certain varieties of Cordyceps grow parasitically on the caterpillars of particular moths. Some species of Cordyceps are called “winter worm” (these mushrooms grow on a caterpillar, after killing it and filling it with mycelium) and “summer grass”. These endangered mushrooms only occurs in the high mountains (the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau) in southwestern China and Tibet. Fortunately, the mycelia of Cordyceps sinensis can also be grown domestically, using a substrate such as rice. Researchers have found that the mycelia of domestic Cordyceps sinensis varieties contain the same pharmacological components and medicinal properties as the original, wild Cordyceps. This also applies to (domestic) mycelia of Cordyceps militaris.

Cordyceps have been widely used in traditional chinese medicine (TCM) and some branches of herbalism for centuries. There are many health benefits associated with cordyceps. Cordyceps is a genus of parasitic fungi that attaches itself on insects and other arthropods as hosts. Each species of cordyceps typically infects a very specific bug. The genus has approximately 400 species that can be found worldwide. The most renowned Cordyceps species is cordyceps sinensis (currently officially known as ophiocordyceps sinensis) which infects the caterpillar of Hepialus moth. Cordyceps usually thrive at an altitude above 3800 meters in the mountainous Himalayan Plateau of Bhutan, India, Nepal, Tibet and Chinese provinces. In Tibet, cordyceps are known as Yarsamgumba or yartsa gunbu, in China, it is called literally winter worm and in Bhutan, it’s known as Yartsa Goenbub.

Cordyceps collection has greatly improved the lives of the people. Moreover, in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, cordyceps is believed to fight fatigue, have anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. After the legalisation of the harvesting of cordyceps by the Royal Government of Bhutan in 2004, it has been harvested extensively in the preserved pristine alpine meadows of Bhutan. “In the past, all our household income was dependent on agricultural works and we used to plough our fields with oxen. Now, after the legalisation of Cordyceps collection, everyone is well off. Every household has 2 to 3 cars now. Each year, there are about 3 new houses constructed here,” Dorji Tenpa from Nangsiphel said. Find more information at https://cordycepssinensis.org/.
