Cordyceps can increase oxygen supply and blood flow

Did you know that there is a mushroom that can support heart, kidney, immune system and liver function? Were you aware that this same mushroom is also able to increase energy, stamina and endurance, all while being a powerful antioxidant and aphrodisiac that can increase sex drive and help impotence? In addition, the powerful fungus can increase oxygen supply and blood flow throughout the body. The special, medicinal mushroom is called cordyceps sinensis and has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries.

Cordyceps – also known as the Chinese caterpillar fungus –can be found in health food stores, Chinese specialty stores, and at online retailers. While cordyceps are now produced in Western countries as well, the most potent cordyceps are thought to come from the Tibetan regions. The mushroom can be found in its wild state (sometimes still attached to the caterpillar), or bought in the supplemental forms of extract, tincture and capsule.
