Cordyceps is actually a fungus that is found on certain species of caterpillars, and it can scraped off in minute amounts, and then it is duplicated in the laboratory to make supplements.
These supplements are showing a rising popularity as they are used from everything from a morning pep pill, to cancer cures, and many other amazing uses of the Cordyceps Sinensis, as it is used and studied, more and more people are becoming aware of it.
Some of the results of tests and studies show that the substance increases stamina, energy and reduces fatigue and stress. It is particularly helpful in the treatment of heart disease, and the prevention of heart problems. It has been shown to actually strengthen our muscles by adding muscle fiber.
The heart is a muscle that beats constantly all of our lives, and when it quits beating, we die. Can you imagine flexing your bicep once every 2 seconds on a constant basis. In actual practice, you would not be able to last the day, yet your heart just keeps beating on and on.
In Chinese medical practice, Cordyceps Sinensis is classified as a tonic which nourishes the body and strengthens all of the bodily functions. For years the substance has been given as an overall "cure-all" because it caused the patient to feel more vital, have better strength and stamina, and just gave a person a better feeling about things.
After substantial study, it has been found the it strengthens the heart muscle to the degree that it beats more regularly with more authority.
Some of the factors that contribute to Cordyceps Sinensis strengthening the heart includes a maximization of the intake of oxygen. Oxygen comes into our bodies through our lungs. As the oxygen enters our lungs, it passes through small sacs located near passing blood capillaries where the oxygen is transferred into red blood cells. It has been shown that the Cordyceps Sinensis enhances this process.
Overall, the substance strengthens the muscles, and that includes the heart, staving off congestive heart failure, or a chronic weakening of the heart muscle itself.
Cordyceps Sinensis also has a relaxing effect on smooth muscle tissue, which is what the heart is, and because of this factor, the blood flow to the heart muscle is increased and more oxygen reaches the heart muscle in this way.
Cordyceps Sinensis also has a great antioxidant ability, and it also protects against abeta-induced neuronal cell death, which can affect the heart.
Cordyceps Sinensis is very helpful in getting rid of excess fluid in the body, which can occur when congestive heart failure occurs. As fluid is taken out of the body, the heart does not have to work so hard.
As far as being healthy for the human heart, Cordyceps Sinensis is a wonderful help in that area.
