Cordyceps sinensis – Chinese caterpillar fungus
The Cordyceps originally comes from Tibet and grows there at an altitude of 3000 to 5000 meters on the larvae of a butterfly. In the meantime it has been possible to cultivate this rare and expensive fungus.
The areas of application of the Cordyceps in veterinary medicine are very extensive. From the point of view of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), it supports the kidney, which stores the entire life energy according to this medical doctrine and is regarded as the root of life. In kidney dysfunction, Cordyceps improves both kidney function and creatinine clearance. Its beneficial effect on the respiratory organs, the heart and general endurance can promote athletic performance. After sporting exertion, this fungus promotes the regenerative ability of the muscle tissue.
A further field of application of the Cordyceps are hormonal diseases. Due to its regulating effect on the release of hormones from the adrenal cortex, it counteracts stress symptoms and has therefore proven itself well in anxious and stressed animals.
