ANI Cordyceps

What is Cordyceps?

Cordyceps sinensis, also known as “Dong Chong Xia Cao” in Chinese or “Tochukaso” to the Japanese has a long history of medicinal benefits since ancient times.

In its natural form, Cordyceps is a small fungus that parasitizes on a species of caterpillar at high elevations of the Tibetan plateau. The normal range of this fungus is above 2,000 meters elevation, and it has been found as high as 6,000 meters.

The biological composition of cordyceps is very interesting as even today, there is still debate whether the species of the genus Cordyceps are in fact single organisms or if they are symbiotic colonies of more than one organism due to its unique morphology.

Modern Cultivation of Cordyceps

Due to the rarity of natural cordyceps and the difficulty and cost to harvest from its origin in Tibetan plateau, modern biotechnology has been researching since the 1950s to cultivate cordyceps. Of the two common cultivation methods, Reishilab has identified the solid substrate method as the most ideal in producing cordyceps with the highest bioactive compounds. This cultivation method is also highly popular with growers in Japan and the US.

Cordyceps are cultivated using a mixture of organic grown substrate such as millet, rice and sorghum grain under strict controlled environment similar to its natural habitat. After its growth cycle of about 23 weeks, the cordyceps stroma containing pharmacologically active ingredients will appear on the substrate. Stroma is equivalent to the fungus growing on the caterpillar in the wild which will be harvested minus the substrates or grain residual.

Health benefits of Cordyceps

Codyceps has been used effectively for centuries as a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to rejuvenate and replenish our general health. Modern research has shown that cordyceps helps to support liver, kidney, heart, and the immune system function. It also acts as an anti-oxidant in the body, protecting it from free radical damage. The four main medicinal properties of Cordyceps are :-

  • Cordycepin – Anti-tumor and anti-aging effects, contains anti-oxidants, anti-diabetes (hypoglycemic) & immune booster.
  • Adenosine – Improves oxygen utilization, anti blood coagulation properties to improve blood circulation to the heart, brain and sexual organs, lowers blood pressure, heart beat rate stabilizer and energy booster.
  • Cordycepic Acid (D-Mannitol) – Improves immune function and metabolism. Prevent cerebral haemorrhage, thrombus, myocardial infarction and asthma.
  • Polysaccharides – Increase immunity, enhances detoxification and SOD – (free radical scavenger), oxidation reduction and aging of cells

By adapting the highly effective solid-substrate method, our Cordyceps comes from mycelia grown on vegetable media, not on silkworm carcasses to ensure better contamination control. We believe the mycelia to contain a higher concentration of active compounds than the fruiting bodies of the mushrooms.

Ingredients Each vegetable capsule contains 250mg Cordyceps.
Dosage and Suggested Use 250mg capsule; 1 capsule before meal taken with warm water, 2 times a day.

什么是冬虫夏草?

冬虫夏草 又称冬虫草、它是麦角菌科真菌冬虫夏草寄生在蝙蝠蛾科昆虫幼虫上的子座及幼虫尸体的复合体。冬虫夏草主要生长在高海拔的森林草甸或草坪上;由于土质的缘故,生长在森林草甸上的冬虫夏草颜色以暗黄棕色为主,生长在草原上的冬虫夏草则以黄棕色为主。

虫草是一种昆虫与真菌的结合体。虫是虫草蝙蝠蛾的幼虫,菌是虫草真菌,每当盛夏,海拔2,000米以上的雪山草甸上,冰雪消融,体小身花的蝙蝠蛾便将千千万万个虫卵留在花叶上。继而蛾卵变成小虫,钻进潮湿疏松的土壤里,吸收植物根茎的营养,逐渐将身体养得洁白肥胖。这时,球形的子囊孢子遇到虫草蝙幅蛾幼虫,便钻进虫体内部,吸引其营养,萌发菌丝。当虫草蝙蝠蛾的幼虫食到有虫草真菌的叶子时也会成为虫草。

现代冬虫草培育法

天然冬虫夏草稀有而且昂贵, 由于其在西藏高原的原产地,自五十年代就有许多现代培植技术一直致力于研究培育冬虫夏草。其中普遍的两培植方法,Reishilab选择了采用生产最理想的生物活性化合物的冬虫夏草固体基质的方法。这种培植方法在日本及美国很受欢迎。

冬虫夏草培植需要严格控制的环境中成长加上有机基质混合物,如小米,大米和高粱类似其自然栖息地。大约23周成长期,含有虫草体药理活性成分将出现在基体。基体相当于真菌在野生毛毛虫滋生但是缺少了残余物或粮食.

冬虫夏草功效 药理学现代研究结果中,青海冬虫夏草含有虫草酸约7%,碳水化合物28.9%,脂肪约8.4%,蛋白质约25%,脂肪中82.2%为不饱和脂肪酸,此外,尚含有维生素B12、麦角脂醇、六碳糖醇、生物碱等。据医学科学分析,虫草体内含虫划酸.

冬虫夏草含有虫草素可用于抗癌剂、抗病毒剂、抗氧化剂、核糖核酸抑制剂、生物活性物质、抗真菌剂。虫草素的作用机理,是对小鼠肿瘤细胞系细胞的增殖有很强的抑制作用. 临床上使用虫草素多为辅助治疗恶性肿瘤,症状得到改善的在91.7%以上;主要用于鼻癌、咽癌,肺癌,白血病,脑癌以及其他恶性肿瘤的患者.

虫草酸是一种D–甘露醇,甘露醇能提高血浆渗透压,导致组织内的水分进入血管内,从而减轻组织水肿,补充血浆。虫草酸多用于脑水肿,防治急性肾功能衰竭,有调节心、脑、血管的作用,促进人体的新陈代谢、改善人体的微循环、降血脂、降血压。

虫草多糖的药理试验证明:虫草多糖具有抗肿瘤、抗传染病的功效、增强性功能、补肾壮阳、益精气、防止衰老、延年益寿;对老年人慢性支气管炎、肺源性心脏病有显著的功效。能提高肝脏的解毒能力,起到扶肝的作用。降血糖、降血脂,贫血的患者用于补血,增强脾脏的营养性血流量,虫草多糖、生物活性强,适应性广,还具耐缺氧、镇痛、镇静的作用。
