Cordyceps sinensis, Dong Chong Xia Cao, ถั่งเช่า, or summer-grass winter-worm, originating in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau of China and Tibet at a high altitude of about 10,000 feet above sea level, is a fungus that grows on specific species of moths’ larvae. It has been widely used as traditional Chinese herbal medicine for more than 2,000 years. The Chinese emperors believed that it would guarantee longevity.
Cordyceps was put on the global map in 1993 when the Chinese women’s track team, which won multiple Olympic gold medals, claimed the use of Cordyceps as an energy stimulant. In the recent years, there are several test studies that showed the benefits of Cordyceps in overall wellness.
CORDYTHAI’s main ingredient is cordyceps extract, harvested from cultivated Cordyceps sinensis in a nutrient-rich liquid culture using patented technology horizontal bio-fermentor. CORDYTHAI is in capsules ready to take form, no grain, high in purity extract. That means our Cordyceps are cruelty free, vegan, and 99% matched to wild C. sinensis. Researchers have found that the mycelia of domestic C. sinensis varieties contain the same pharmacological components and medicinal properties as the original wild Cordyceps.
By using an advanced in-house lab, not only are we able to ensure safe levels of heavy metal and air-borne pathogens, we can maintain control over the medicinal extract purity cordycepin level, thus, delivering only the best quality cordyceps product to our customers.
