Commentary and General Applications: Cordyceps sinensis, another famous fungus from the Chinese pharmacopia, has been shown by modem research to promote phagocytosis of peritoneal macrophages, enhance the function of the reticula-endothelial system, and reduce cholesterol levels. In the wild, cordyceps grows in the Himalayas from moth larvae. Its Chinese name - dong chong xia cao - literally means “summer grass, winter worm”.

After many years of effort, a biologist in Northern California has succeeded in taming a rare, wild strain of cordyceps gathered in the mountains of China, persuading it to grow on a substrate of organic whole-grain brown rice under laboratory conditions. Because the cordyceps’ life cycle peaks in both winter and summer, it is considered to have the unique property of balancing the primal powers of Water and Fire in the body, nourishing both yin and yang, soma and psyche. It is an essence tonic that invigorates the breath and guards against premature aging by fostering the body’s capacity to reproduce, grow, and regenerate.
