It is an ancient medicine known to traditional Himalayan healers as Yarsa gumba (winter worm, summer grass). It is recommended for ‘all illnesses’ as a tonic, because cordy, as we lovingly refer to it, is claimed to improve energy, appetite, stamina, libido, endurance and sleeping patterns. Wild cordy is a rare combo of caterpillar and fungus, found at altitudes about 3,800m. Yak herders noticed their yaks consumed the cordyceps as they grazed and the yaks became very strong and virile. This is how the locals knew to use cordyceps medicinally.  This what Taoist philosophy is all about, using nature as the best teacher.

At DXN Company we choose to use a cultivated strain of cordyceps, as the wild one is crazy-expensive. The advantage here is the process is highly standardized and the final product is pure mycelium, without the residual grains or substrates you get by using solid-state fermentation (mycelium on grain).

We love it for overall energy by building power and stamina, tones lungs (you got asthma? Hit the cordy), oxygenates blood, supports immunity (especially in the cases of auto-immunity), anti-viral (especially for the lungs) and anti-fungal, great postpartum recovery, athletic recovery via increasing oxygen uptake, high-stress executives, modulating cholesterol levels, supports libido, balances kidney, strengthens knees and lower back.

Along with athletes, cordyceps is traditionally used by mothers post-partum as well as the elderly seeking to rebuild their foundational energy and resilience.
