Cordyceps

Cordyceps, a genus of Ascomyte (Sac Fungi), are endoparasitions (parasitic on insects, arthopods and other fungi). There are approximately 400 species found worldwide. However, Cordyceps renamed Ophiocordyceps Sinensis are natives of alpine humid climatic zones of Asia (particularly Nepal, China, Bhutan, Korea, Vietnam and Thailand). Cordyceps means 'club-headed'; Kordyle is derived from Greek meaning 'Club' and ceps from Latin meaning 'head'. It is called Yartsa Gunbu in Tibetan, Yarsa Gumba in Nepali and Sanjiwani Buti in Sanskrit. The Cordyceps fungus attacks the host (caterpillar) and eventually replaces the host tissue as mycelium invades it. It is a paramount source of biochemicals with pharmacological and biological properties like Cordycepin, an immunosuppressive drug helpful in organ transplants. Holistic Health (Pvt) Ltd. has brought Cordyceps in capsule form, which is comfortable to carry and use.
