Cordyceps helps to boost immune function and has anti-aging effects. When I say ‘anti-aging’ I’m not talking about the concept society uses these days to resist the natural beautiful aging process. Anti-aging for herbs is all about the emphasis on protection and defense. Cordyceps helps fight inflammation and reduce oxidative damage, both of which contribute to chronic disease and cognitive decline. Cordyceps improves the activity of antioxidants including superoxide dismutase and glutathione. Cordyceps contains adenosine, a nucleic acid that is a component needed to make ATP, the body’s source of energy, making Cordyceps an herb that can improves physical ability, endurance and stamina. Cordyceps increases oxygen uptake, and can help alleviate symptoms of respiratory conditions like bronchitis, asthma and coughs.
