Bhutan Cordyceps healing power advices? According to the coach, regularly ingesting the mushrooms boosted the runners energy, and relaxed the respitory tract, allowing the runners to use oxygen more efficiently and gain a competitive edge. Scientific studies have been done more recently which show that Cordyceps can actually increase “vasodilation” helping to deliver much needed oxygen to the cells of the body during exercise, increasing stamina. This study , for example, showed that athletic performance was increased for older healthy adults by taking Cordyceps over a 12 week period. Another study set out to show the effect of Cordyceps on physical endurance by giving supplemental dose to rats over a period of 15 days and monitoring their ability to swim. The study showed that the group using cordyceps was able to increase their swim times by upwards of 20 minutes- a substantial improvement.
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.
The strengthening of these meridians is said to strengthen the body, making it resilliant against fatigue, night sweats, lower back-pain, decreased libido, impotence, hyperglycemia, severe exhaustion, respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease and even liver diseases. Cordyceps sinensis has been used medicinally in China for over 2000 years, but has only officially been classified as a medicine in Chinese medicine since 1964.

Cordyceps have been widely used in traditional chinese medicine (TCM) and some branches of herbalism for centuries. A lot of research has been conducted to study the powerful benefits of cordyceps. Below are some of the health benefits that have been claimed to be associated with cordyceps. Combating fatigue: Fatigue is the physical or mental exhaustion caused by stresses such as overwork, lack of exercise or lack of sleep. It can also be a symptom resulting from illness, anxiety, medicine, or depression. Cordyceps have been shown to produce antifatigue function and are good to combat tired muscles. Cordyceps are known to help in boosting strength and improving immune system. Studies suggest that cordyceps increase the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a primary source of energy of our cells, particularly muscles. Cordyceps also promote restful sleep and helps to boost energy.
The livelihood of the people of Chhoekhor Toed in Bumthang has been transformed since the collection and sale of Cordyceps in the country was legalised in 2004. A huge amount of money acquired from Cordyceps collection has been spent on household ration, construction of houses and on children’s education. At this time of the year, most houses at Chhoekhor Toed in Bumthang remain locked. Only students and some elderly people can be seen in the villages, as most of the young people are in the mountains, collecting Cordyceps – the prized fungus. See even more details on this website.
