Once the most rare and coveted supplement in China was only available to the elite-the emperor and select wealthy individuals. Recently, a massive effort was undertaken and methods were developed to cultivate cordyceps in a controlled environment in order to make its benefits available to the public. Now these unique health benefits are available to everyone through Nature's Sunshine.
When China's national women's track and field team broke several records in 1993, and again one year later, it caused a sensation and raised questions about possible use of performance-enhancing drugs. While no drug residues were detected, the coach did reveal that the team was drinking a tonic made from "cordyceps," a well-known, natural, Chinese supplement.
A natural Chinese supplement, Cordyceps benefits several body systems, including the circulatory, immune, respiratory and glandular systems. In addition, Cordyceps:
- Is traditionally used to help the body build strength, endurance and stamina.
- Offers energizing support to people experiencing fatigue.
- Aids the upper respiratory tract and promotes healthy lung function.
- Supports male potency and female vitality.
- Supports the kidneys.
- Helps the body maintain proper blood viscosity.
- Has properties similar to those of ginseng.
The NSP Advantage
NSP is one of the first companies to make this product available in Western society. Our Cordyceps provides a higher level of purity and more consistent quality and standard than Cordyceps grown in the wild. This is due to the controlled environment and the cultivation processes NSP utilizes. The natural strain of Cordyceps we offer (CS-4) most closely matches that of the wild-crafted Cordyceps sinensis so highly prized that grows atop the high plateaus of Tibet. Other forms of Cordyceps on the market may be different species or strains of Cordyceps and may not offer its complete benefits.
Each capsule contains 530 mg of CS-4 cordyceps, a proprietary strain of Cordyceps sinensis.
Take two or three capsules three times daily with meals. Some people choose to double this serving size in order to get more noticeable results or to shorten the initial three or four weeks it often takes to notice the product's full range of benefits.
Cordyceps is intended for adults, since existing studies have only been conducted on adults. People using immune-suppressing drugs anticoagulant drugs or bronchio-dilators should consult their health-care practitioners before using this product, as serving size adjustments may be required. Pregnant or lactating women should also consult their health-care practitioners before using this product.
