woman runner training for marathonCodyceps helps with sports performance

You may have heard of the wonders of Cordyceps as a result of the controversy with China’s national women’s track and field team. Cordyceps came into the public spotlight after the Chinese track and field team of 1993 broke several records whilst using this sensational herb. At first the team was accused of illicit drug use, but upon testing and further questioning they found that the trainer had the team supplementing with Cordyceps. Clinical trials and scientific literature affirm Cordyceps ability to assist with endurance, exercise performance and general wellbeing.

Cordyceps: a tonic for the Respiratory System

Apart from endurance, exercise performance and general wellbeing, Cordyceps is a traditional Chinese restorative tonic for convalescence, especially where there are respiratory issues such as a cough. Its benefit is primarily due to Cordycep’s relaxing and restorative effect on the respiratory system. The use of Cordyceps to assist with respiratory health is centuries old and even today the Chinese consider Cordyceps a tonic to nourish the lungs and to dispel phlegm.
