Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis) is a pocket-like spore-eating edible parasitic fungus. You can also find it under other names, such as caterpillar mushroom (English), Ophiocordyceps sinensis, Dong Chong Xia Cao (winter caterpillar, summer grass), Chinese caterpillar. It belongs to the genus Cordyceps (an estimated 700 species are known), among which we find, for example, C. militaris, C. gunnii, C. liangshamensis.
Cordyceps consists not only of a fungus (representing the plant kingdom) but also of a larva (representing the animal kingdom), ie translated into today's language: 2 in 1. Thanks to this, it can effectively strengthen not only YANG but also YIN and especially the renal essence of Jing, which is the most important part of our body responsible for the state of body, spirit and mind. The renal essence of Jing is, figuratively speaking, a wax on our candle of life, which gradually but irresistibly diminishes and is depleted. In traditional Chinese medicine, there are not many products that supplement and expand the essence of Jing's kidneys without weakening other organs, and cordyceps fulfills this. It is therefore suitable for an organism exhausted by either diseases and drugs or physical or mental work. It is also suitable for a healthy person to maintain health, not only in terms of quantity (longevity) but especially its quality.
Cordyceps is thus considered the best tonic for Jing essence. Cordyceps strengthens the body and mind at a fundamental level. It is said to be able to increase the basic vitality needed for all organs to function. Because it contains both Yin and Yang components, it can be used for a long time, unlike most medicinal plants. It complements the Yin part of the Jing essence and thus restores energy that has been depleted due to increased physical exertion, adaptation to stress or old age. Cordyceps is the primary substance used in Chinese medicine as a tonic for convalescence.
