The historical use of cordyceps as an anti-aging herb in traditional Chinese practices dates back to 1700 BCE. During China’s Chin Dynasty, one emperor is said to have paid an ounce of gold for a three-day supply of the precious fungus. Tibetan scholars recorded detailed descriptions of cordyceps in 15th and 18th century texts. Cordyceps was introduced to Europe at a scientific meeting in Paris in 1726, and was first imported to Japan in 1728.
General vitality support
Due to its wide range of biological actions, it has been used against fatigue, to escalate vitality and to promote longevity, and to support the health of the lungs, the kidneys, the liver, and the cardiovascular system. Cordyceps is known as a “kidney tonic” in traditional Chinese practices, where the kidneys constitute a functional organ system that stores vital energy (or “Jing”). This is significant because under this tradition, cordyceps is regarded as both “Yin-nourishing” and “Yang-invigorating” for a very balancing effect on many facets of human physiology, from sensitivity to cold to respiratory health. Science has confirmed the utility of cordyceps for many purposes, including its anti-fatigue and anti-stress properties
Immune system support
Results of many preclinical studies suggest that cordyceps promotes balanced immune cell function. Among the most interesting of these studies was one that investigated the ability of cordyceps to differentially modulate the activities of different dendrite cell stages—key to balancing control of the homeostatic steady-state of the our immune system. These results suggested that cordyceps bolsters immune function where necessary, yet suppresses over-reactive immune responses. Other immune function results reported by cordyceps researchers include elevation of natural killer cell activity, intestinal T-cell activation, and activation of signalling molecules that support the production of healthy immune proteins.
