Benefits of ultra Cordyceps plus extract
The active component of cordyceps is a substance known as “cordycepin”. It is a derivative of the nucleoside called adenosine and performs almost the same functions as adenosine in the body. Cordyceps extract is also a rich source of vitamins (E, K, B1, B2 and B12), essential amino acids, several sugars and polysaccharides, sterols, proteins and other elements.
The beneficial role of cordyceps extracts has long been established in the traditional medicinal practices. Especially notable are its uses in improving male virility. The health benefits of cordyceps extracts are listed below.
Cordyceps extract have been proved to boost energy and performance levels. They do so by enhancing the supply of nutrients to the body. The resilience and endurance of the body is also known to improve by cordyceps.
This increase in resilience is believed to be due to increase in the concentration of skeletal muscle metabolic regulators, formation of new blood vessels for increased oxygen and nutrient supply to tissues (Angiogenesis) and enhanced glucose and lactate uptake by the cells.
Respiration has also been shown to improve as a result of cordyceps intake. This is why athletes and sportsmen incorporate cordyceps supplements in their diet to improve their performance and to build up their stamina. It is also known to enhance learning, memory and concentration.
Better lung functions
Cordyceps is known to improve the oxygen absorption by the lung alveoli by 40% (Lou Y et al.; 1996). It is known to alleviate the symptoms of many respiratory diseases like asthma, bronchitis, COPD, pulmonary edema etc. In asthmatics, it is especially beneficial as it causes the bronchi to dilate, thereby facilitating the respiration by easing the bouts of cough. It also has some anti-inflammatory properties that benefits people suffering from inflammatory lung conditions like bronchitis.
Improved liver health
Cordyceps extracts work wonders to improve the liver health. It has been successfully used in the treatment of hepatitis B as an adjuvant to antiviral therapy. In one study, remarkable improvement in liver function was seen in patients suffering from liver cirrhosis. It is also beneficial for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C.
Better sexual health
Cordyceps extracts are beneficial for both male and female sexual health. The deoxyadenosine and corycepic acid present in the fungus helps in dilating the blood vessels and causes an increase in the flow of blood towards the genitalia, thereby improving the libido. It enhances the sexual desire. It is used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. Due to its ability to enhance the sex drive, it is used as a supplement to improve the overall sexual performance by both males and females.
Improved cardiovascular health
The cordyceps extracts have anti-oxidant properties that help to lower the levels of “bad cholesterols” within the body, thereby preventing the cardiovascular disorders. This is because it prevents the deposition of bad cholesterol as plaque in the blood vessels so that the blood vessels do not get clogged, thereby maintaining the blood supply to heart and other vital organs. In this way, it significantly lowers the risk of stroke, coronary heart disease (CHD), angina and myocardial infarction.
Cordyceps extract have been shown to have an inhibitory effect on the growth of certain cancers. One study showed it to be effective against fibrosarcoma (Ng and Wang; 2005), lymphoma, breast cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, melanoma, prostate cancer and lung cancer.
These anti-tumor effects are believed to be due to its cytotoxic effects against the rapidly proliferating cancer cells. It is also known to induce apoptosis in the tumor cells (Buenz et al. 2005). Activation of Bax, caspase-3 and/or -9, -8; inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2); and nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) protein expression and down regulation of Bcl-2 are the other mechanisms by which cordyceps extract cause tumor suppression (Yang, and Li; 2008).
Cordyceps is known to potentiate the effects of the immune system within the body. It improves the phagocytic function of the macrophages. It also causes increased production of cytokines and other immune mediators within the body (Kim et al. 2006) and protect against invasion by various pathogens like bacteria, viruses etc. It plays important role in in cellular and humoral immune responses of adaptive immunity.
