Cordyceps is a blend of cordyceps sinensis and Hepialus armoricanus from the high elevation regions of China. This "Chinese Caterpillar" herb belongs to the fungus category and has been used as an adaptogen (for ch'i) in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Its use in this country has been primarily confined to energy production dynamics with applications in athletic enhancement. Research has shown an increase in liver ATP:Pi (inorganic phosphate) ratio indicating more energy within the liver for metabolism. Other areas of benefit are increasing SOD (an overall antioxidant) activity, strengthening immune function, kidney function and improving glucose metabolism.
The active components of this product are not well defined but current research indicates the nucleotides (adenosine), polysaccharides, cordycepin and amino acids are responsible for its therapeutic potential. This material is standardized to contain a minimum of 0.2% adenosine and 7% cordycepic acid. Research indicates cordyceps has a very low incidence of toxicity.
