Listen to the plants: Cordyceps

By Dr. med. Claudia Schmiemann

Cordyceps is a type of fungus that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. It is known for its potential health benefits and has gained popularity as a natural supplement. While more research is needed to fully understand its effects on humans, some of the reported health benefits of cordyceps include:

1. Immune system support: Cordyceps may help boost the immune system by stimulating the production of white blood cells and enhancing the body’s defense against infections.

2. Increased energy and stamina: It is believed that cordyceps can improve energy levels and physical performance, making it a popular supplement among athletes.

3. Respiratory health: Cordyceps has been traditionally used to support respiratory function and may help with conditions like asthma and bronchitis.

4. Anti-inflammatory properties: Some studies suggest that cordyceps may have anti-inflammatory effects, which could be beneficial in managing inflammatory conditions.

5. Antioxidant properties: Cordyceps contains antioxidants that help combat oxidative stress and may protect cells from damage caused by free radicals.

6. Blood sugar regulation: Preliminary research suggests that cordyceps may have a positive impact on blood sugar levels and could be beneficial for people with diabetes.

7. Kidney and liver health: Cordyceps has been used in traditional medicine to support kidney and liver function, though more research is needed in this area.

8. Sexual health: In some traditional practices, cordyceps has been used as an aphrodisiac and to support reproductive health in both men and women.
