A History of Healing
For hundreds of years, the indigenous peoples of Bhutan, Tibet and Nepal have witnessed the curative power of Cordyceps first-hand. The earliest known documentation on the health benefits of the fungi is by a 13th century physician.
Now Grown in both the lab and the wild, Cordyceps is one of the prized gems of Traditional Chinese Medicine. In the wild, it grows on certain species of caterpillar and is in such limited supply that the Chinese sometimes refer to it as “soft gold”.
