HISTORY OF CORDYCEPS
More than 1500 years ago in the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet, the lush meadows close to the snow line were covered with many flowering plants and grasses. The local herdsmen who liked this area for herding, gradually noticed that when their cattle and sheep chewed a particular grass, they became very strong. Even old yaks showed signs of being younger, and had increased natural vigor. Little did they suspect that this "grass" actually was a parasitic fungus which invades the body of caterpillars and eats the soft tissue. The "grass" part is the fruiting body of this mushroom. It is called Cordyceps sinensis.
Was it possible that small grass contained some mysterious ingredient? Some traditional Chinese doctors started to gather them as medication for their patients. To their surprise, the grasses did wonders for several diseases for which they did not previously have any cure. And so the medicinal powers of Cordyceps sinensis were discovered. Its mysterious health effects were passed from one generation to another.
More than 1000 years later, in the Ming Dynasty, the emperor's court physicians studied the Cordyceps formula, and using their own experience and wisdom, improved on their usage. Cordyceps then became a respected TMC (Traditional Chinese Medicine) drug but was available only for the Imperial Palace. The common people had no authorization to use Cordyceps. The Chinese named it Dong Chong Yia Cao, or "winter-worm, summer grass".
