Dong Chong Xia Cao, powder, unsulfured
Cordyceps mycelium (biomass) powder
This is a very powerful herb. It is considered a tonic for the lung and kidney systems in Chinese medicine. It is gentle and may take a while to kick in (unlike Ren Shen which is quicker but shorter acting). The traditional form of cordyceps is very hard to gather and is very, very expensive. Our cordyceps (because it is a fungus) is grown in a hay-like material. No animals or insects were harmed in this biomass process. And quite frankly if you are paying a whole lot for traditionally grown cordyceps you probably are getting a fake, unless you really know the source.
We have had to raise the prices on this. In addition, making capsules has proven to be really problematic and for now we will only ship powder.
I shouldn’t do this but here is a web-page that is pretty good at describing Cordyceps. We at Eagle Herbs disavow any disease claims (particularly the cancer ones) but here it is… Cordyceps>
