In need of extra energy or fancy living a bit longer? Try the ‘Herb of Life’

It’s the newest and most expensive herb in the world and was featured on Newsnight, on July 19 2005. Cordyceps is known as the ‘Herb of Life’ by the Himalayan people, who have harvested it for thousands of years after noticing that the Yaks who ate it became stronger, more agile and had more energy. They were also more highly sexed.

Considered to be superior to ginseng, Cordyceps is an energy tonic that is also good for alleviating asthma. It enables the body to utilise oxygen more efficiently by opening airways. It has beneficial effects on many bodily functions and has been described by Proof magazine as, ‘A life extender tonic remedy for weakness and fatigue that can reduce cholesterol and artheriosclerosis, improve sexual functioning and minimise the effects of ageing’.

Cordyceps is also used as a sports enhancer and has been researched by The American College of Sports Medicine. The Health Science Institute states: ‘Cordyceps is an extraordinary remedy, dramatically boosting energy levels, improving cardiac and respiratory health, relieving ailing kidneys and supporting the immune system’ . Here in the UK, The Independent and the BBC web site, April 2004, featured a trial which showed that using Cordyceps caused a significant increase in aerobic fitness and reduced body fat by 20%.

Because it is so rare, the wild Cordyceps harvested in Tibet is phenomenally expensive. Asian people, particularly the Chinese, cannot get enough of it. Newsnight highlighted the way gangsters and the army in Tibet are ripping off the native tribes people who harvest it. However, they did not mention that the most potent strain called Cs-4 is now grown in laboratories.
