Cordyceps sinensis (Berk.) Sacc.

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 that is cultivated on organic oats.

Parts Used

Whole mushroom and mycelium.

Typical Preparations

Traditionally prepared in Chinese medicine as a broth, it can also be used as an extract, as a tea, or in capsules.
