Medicinal Mushroom Cordyceps Sinensis for Energy, Stamina and Disease Resistance
Research has validated much of what herbalists around the world have known for thousands of years about the benefits of consuming medicinal mushrooms. Studies have shown that a type of polysaccharide found in mushrooms, called beta-glucans, have the ability to modulate the immune system by lowering an over-active immune response, or stimulating an under-active immune response. When used over a period of time, beta-glucans build, strengthen and balance the immune system. Triterpenes, another class of compounds found in mushrooms, help the body deal with stress by regulating and normalizing bodily functions, while also helping to increase oxygen uptake and supporting liver function.
How can a mushroom address an overactive and underactive immune system you ask?
Well...Cordyceps sinensis mushroom for instance is an adaptogenic herb. This means that when taken regularly it has the ability to seek out what is wrong in the body and then go to work mending, balancing and repairing. It has the uncanny ability to fix whatever imbalances exist. Adaptogens train the body how to cope with external stressors, so that it can more effectively resist disease. Cordyceps can strengthen immune system function, increase physical performance, and improve overall vitality. It is often referred to as the anti- aging mushroom.
Cordyceps has been used as a natural medicine for thousands of years. Cordyceps mushrooms grow only in the high-elevation mountain regions of the world (most wild specimens are found in China and other parts of the Himalayan range), and thus were a rare treasure sought by ancient healers and herbalists.
Mushrooms are a remarkably healing superfood capable of dramatically boosting energy levels, warding off a staggering variety of diseases, and optimizing the entire body for performance and longevity.
Researchers have discovered that when the body undergoes stress of any kind, whether emotional or physiological, it creates free radicals in the body. Cordyceps is powerful enough to combat these free radicals with ease. The free-radical-fighting ability of cordyceps mushroom has been shown to improve functioning of the brain, heart, immune system, reproductive system, all by supercharging the body’s natural detoxification mechanisms.
We all know that chronic inflammation is a leading risk factor for nearly every prevalent disease. It’s not surprising, then, that some of cordyceps’ anti-aging power is attributed to the anti-inflammatory compounds it contains. These compounds have been shown to protect nearly every bodily system, to heal autoimmune diseases, and even to fight cancer.
And that’s still just the tip of the iceberg.
Cordyceps can be successfully used to treat a wide array of health challenges including bronchitis and other respiratory conditions, chronic fatigue syndrome, kidney disease, heart disease, high cholesterol, bladder infections and other urinary problems, reproductive issues, coughs, colds, flus, hepatitis B and other viruses, circulation issues, muscle weakness, and more.
They even act as a natural aphrodisiac, fight diabetes, and improve liver function. So regardless of what aspect of your health you’d like to improve, supplementing with cordyceps mushrooms may help.
