Cordyceps is one of the super stars of the Radiant Wonder herbal system. This mushroom is an extremely powerful and effective life-enhancing herb. It is used to strengthen the mind and body at a fundamental level (Jing Tonic). Because of its safety for all ages we include Cordyceps sinensis in three of our most important formulas: Brain Tonic, Radiant Immune Defense, and Ultimate Immune Defense. And, because it can stand alone for its tremendous rejuvenating qualities we offer it as one of our few single herbs, Cordyceps.
Cordyceps sinensis is among the safest medicinal foods. In the times of the emperors it was extremely expensive because it was so rare and so valuable. It is considered on the level with Ginseng, Reishi Mushroom, and Deer Antler for its ability to build martial physical strength, mental power, and strong immunity . It is grown in grasslands over 9,000 feet elevation and the highest quality is harvested at the summer equinox before the last snows have melted. This herb supports your deep reserve energy, your Jing.
Cordyceps can restore the deep energy that has been used in adapting to stress, aging or chronic illness. In a number of Chinese clinical studies, primarily in older patients complaining of fatigue, when taking Cordyceps, the same patients reported significant improvements in energy levels, a greater ability to tolerate cold temperatures, enhanced memory and cognitive capacity and renewed sex drive.
Patients with respiratory diseases also reported feeling more dynamic physically. Overall, Cordyceps was 80-90% effective in significantly reducing fatigue in senior subjects.
Cordyceps, considered a Yang Jing tonic in Traditional Chinese Herbalism, helps to strengthen sexual function, which is the traditional use for Yang Jing herbs. In recent studies performed at Beijing Medical University of China and in Japan there was a 64% success rate among men suffering from impotence versus 24% in the placebo group. There were no negative side effects from taking the herb. Considered a Yang Jing herb, Asians consider this type of energy critical for male sexual performance as well as for the developing sperm and the energy of that sperm in their journey to find the egg (sperm motility). Cordyceps also offers such well documented free radical protection for the developing sperm, it is likely to play a role in allowing a maximum number of well formed sperm to develop.

Cordyceps is also recommended for its kidney-protecting effects, especially for people taking potentially nephrotoxic drugs.
Cordyceps is a key ingredient in several of Radiant Wonder formulas that deal with aging and immunity. It is also used in formulas that are designed to strengthen the lungs and can be used by anyone who requires extra energy in order to perform hard physical work, or sports workouts. It is a powerful athletic tonic. It has no steroidal content but it significantly improves performance and muscle building capability.
The American College of Sports Medicine annual meeting in 1999 presented a study which indicated that Cordyceps significantly increases maximal oxygen uptake and anaerobic threshold, which may lead to improved exercise capacity and resistance to fatigue.
Cordyceps has demonstrated powerful action against bacteria, fungus and viruses. It has constituents that have been shown to have a strong anti tumor effect. Maintaining a strong immune system is a key to a long and healthy life.
Many studies have shown this mushroom's ability to stimulate and modulate the immune system and increase red blood cells. As an immune modulator and adaptogen, Cordyceps was shown to boost depressed immune function, but not enhance a normally functioning immune system to the same degree. In published research from China, Cordyceps was reported to have anti-tumor activity against lung cancer in both mice and humans.
In a number of human clinical trials and in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Cordyceps has been shown to improve liver, kidney, cardiovascular, and respiratory functioning. Since these organs and systems can be adversely affected by cancer and its treatments, Cordyceps can contribute to overall health, besides having anti-tumor effects.
