Stop Cancerous Tumor Formation with Cordyceps

Cordyceps mushrooms are parasitic fungi that invade and mummify insects, arthropods, and other mushrooms.  The most well known and revered wild variety is known as Cordyceps Sinensis.  This form of cordyceps infects the larvae of a caterpiller, killing the caterpiller, then grows out of the body of the dead caterpiller.  Cordyceps Sinensis is extremely rare, expensive, and was mainly used by the emperor and upper class of China as an aphrodisiac and longevity tonic.

Today, Cordyceps are medicinally cultivated from wild spores by a fermentation process.  The cultivated versions are supposedly as potent as the wild varieties. The fungus is grown in large tanks and in a few days a large quantity can be produced.  It is only within the last two decades that artificially grown cordyceps have been available.  With a price of 1000 dollars a pound in 2015 for high quality wild mushrooms vs about 100 dollars a pound for farmed mushrooms cordyceps are now affordable for the general population.

Cordyceps are a traditional Asian health tonic used for a variety of health disorders and for enhancing the body’s’ natural immune functioning.  This healing fungus is also beneficial for the respiratory system.  Cordyceps ability to increase ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production and its anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties have shown promise in the treatment of lung disease and cancer.  Research has determined that Cordycepin, the active ingredient in Cordyceps Sinensis, can help destroy cancer cells and inhibit them from spreading, multiplying, and forming tumors.

If you’re stressed Cordyceps also speeds recovery from adrenal depletion.  Health is our only real wealth , so try Cordyceps today for a healthier tomorrow.




It is greatly treasured and has been used for thousands of years in China. Chinese herbalists classify it as an adaptogenic superior tonic herb. Cordyceps is legendary for its immune modulating and energy enhancing abilities. It’s also a potent anti-inflammatory. Cordysceps is a cherished anti-aging agent and a rejuvenator, which is especially beneficial for the elderly. Folk and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) use Cordyceps to successfully treat a wide variety of health problems and only a small select group of herbs are considered (superior) tonic herbs in Chinese Medicine’s Materia Medica.

A key point to keep in mind is that Cordyceps excels at oxygenation. The fungus dilates the airways in the lungs, resulting in increased oxygenation of the blood. Thus more oxygen reaches the cells helping to increase the mitochondria’s energy output.“In addition, both C. sinensis and C. militaris contain unique medicinal components such as specific nucleosides called cordycepin and adenosine. These active ingredients have been proven to play a key role in increasing ATP production and are additionally useful to the cardiovascular system, helping to regulate blood pressure. ATP, or adenosine triphosphate, is the intracellular energy source for your muscles.”

The wild version of Cordyceps or Cordyceps sinensis is only found in the Tibetan Plateau region, which includes parts of Tibet, China, India, Nepal and Butan. Cordyceps sinensis is one species in a genus of hundreds. Other species can be found all over the world [3].

In fact, Cordyceps is one of the most expensive mushrooms in the world. Historically only the emperor and the upper classes of China could afford it. In fact unauthorized procurement of this prized mushroom was punishable by death unless of course it was destined for the emperor and his family.

Most high quality cultivated cordyceps are derived from wild spores either from the sinensis or militaris species.Cultivated versions of Cordyceps are very concentrated, exhibiting the same health enhancing qualities as wild varieties.

“In the last several years, it has become possible to grow a number of fungi by “fermentation” technology. The fungus is literally grown in large tanks, and in just a matter of days a large quantity can be produced. (…) Cordyceps is almost identical to that of the wild variety and pharmacological and clinical studies seems to farther confirm this. The Cordyceps contained in most commercial products is produced by this technology.”

“Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) uses Cordyceps to strengthen and regulate the Kidney and Lung meridians. “Cordyceps is used to strengthen the body and mind at a fundamental level. It is said to be able to increase the “primary motive force for life activities.” – Ron Teeguarden
Lung Strengthener

-Cordyceps is considered a major lung tonic in Chinese herbalism.

-Cordyceps relaxes and opens the airways.
This explains why it has been used traditionally to treat respiratory diseases such as: pneumonia, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary emphysema, and tuberculosis.

-Cordyceps is recognized in Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) as an anti-asthmatic, an expectorant and as a cough suppressant.

“It is especially beneficial to those who suffer chronic lung disease [8], It’s used to combat Lung weakness with cough, wheezing and shortness of breath.”

Research reveals that Cordyceps increases lung capacity and overall oxygen utilization. What has been known in Asia for millennia has now been proven scientifically― Cordyceps improves overall respiratory function.

Based on extensive clinical studies, Cordyseps effectively treats a wide range of respiratory diseases and dysfunctions including: asthma, COPD, and bronchitis or when it was combined with antibiotics it was effective and highly beneficial.

Cordyceps is considered to be one of the best immune modulating and energy enhancing adaptogens in Chinese herbalism.

Because Cordyceps is such a powerful adaptogen, it can assist the body in replenishing the deeper layers of immunity located at the level of the bone marrow reserve.  It’s loaded with“immune supporting polysiaccharides, such as beta-glucans and the antitumor inhibiting CO-1, plus the compound called “cordycepin” is an immunoregulatory active ingredient of Cordyceps sinensis, which is unique to Cordyceps.

Studies indicate many of the polysaccharides and nucleosides found in Cordyceps boost the immune system and demonstrate strong antioxidant, antiviral, and anti-tumor activity.

Cordyceps is commonly used as a restorative tonic for those who are convalescing from an illness or injury, or following an operation, or after giving birth. It helps the patient recover their physical strength, improves appetite, and generally protects the body from any opportunistic infections.

Research indicates that Cordyceps can help the body ward off pathogenic bacteria, fungi, and viruses. In Asia Cordyceps is used to treat fungal infections. Currently research is underway at dozens of institutions in China and Japan to determine Cordyceps’ ability to treat different types of cancer [13].
