Cordyceps Mycelium in Traditional Chinese Medicine

Cordyceps strengthens Kidney Yang and augments Jing. This makes Cordyceps ideal to treat impotence, decreased libido, and sore lower back and weak lower extremities. Jing is directly related to reproductive health and fertility, as well as longevity. Herbs like Dong Chong Xia Cao are used to improve sexual function, increase fertility, and promote long life.*

Cordyceps also benefits the Lungs and is used to increase lung capacity. It is traditionally used to treat asthma and other chronic respiratory diseases. Because it strongly benefits lung health, it also improves (according to TCM) the immune system; it is used to prevent respiratory disease.*

Ultimately, Cordyceps is highly prized in TCM due to its balanced nature. It strengthens the Kidney Yang without damaging the Kidney Yin. It improves longevity without causing disharmony.*
