Cordyceps fungus has the ability to increase the ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) production in human cell's mitochondria, thus increasing the energy levels of people using it. It is especially good for people who are involved in athletics or enjoy vigorous sports.
Compounds found in cordyceps are classified as HDP "Host Defense Potentiators". These compounds include: hemicellulose, polysaccharides, polysaccharide-peptides, nucleosides, triterpeniods, complex starches, and other metabolites. Combinations of these compounds are now believed to target the human immune system as well as aid in neuron transmission, metabolism, hormonal balance and nutrient and oxygen transport. They support the development of lymphoid stem cells and other important body defense responses.
Chinese athletes who used Cordyceps in their athletic training program surprised everyone including sports authorities when they broke the 10,000 meter World track record in 1993.
