Cordyceps sinensis is a fungus that parasitize caterpillars, specifically the larva of the hepialid moth. When the fungus parasitizes the larva, its mycelia, which is a mass of branching, threadlike hyphae, fill the entire body of the host and kills it. The entire fungus larva combination is collected for traditional used in herbal medicine for centuries.
Cordyceps are mainly grown in high mountain regions of the world, especially parts of the Himalayas in China, and are actually grown on the backs of caterpillars!

This is mainly due to the anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties of the herb, which can prevent heart arrhythmia and other complications.
Cholesterol Levels: On a similar note, one of the chemical pathways affected by cordyceps is closely related to cholesterol levels. “Bad” cholesterol levels go down and “good” cholesterol levels can go up, effectively protecting the heart, as well as numerous other organ systems that are affected by cholesterol, such as our metabolism and endocrine system. You can help prevent atherosclerosis and subsequent heart attacks and strokes by making cordyceps a part of your weekly herbal treatments.
