Cordyceps sinensis (Berk.) Sacc.
Plant Family: Clavicipitaceae
Use of Cordyceps sinensis dates back to the 15th century in traditional Tibetan and Chinese medicines. The wild form of Cordyceps is rare and expensive; consequently, a strain isolated from the wild form is now cultivated and commonly used. The type offered by Mountain Rose Herbs is organically grown in the United States. Our Cordyceps consists of the dried mycelium and fruiting bodies that are cultivated on organic rice.
