Comments from Mr. Steven Horne, RH (AHG)
Cordyceps is a fungus that grows on caterpillars in high mountain areas. The adaptogenic and health -promoting benefits of cordyceps make it one of the most highly prized herbs in both Tibetan and Chinese medicine.
Cordyceps is a tonic, which means it enhances the underlying reserves, giving it anti-aging and vitality strengthening properties.
One study done on this herb suggested that it enhances production of mitochondrial adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the universal molecule that powers cellular functions.
Research shows that cordyceps can enhance athletic performance, reduce fatigue and balance blood sugar levels, making it another useful tonic for people who have diabetes or metabolic syndrome.
It enhances lung health and is a very useful tonic for anyone with chronic lung diseases like COPD and asthma.
Dose is 2 capsules twice daily.
