For thousands of years, Chinese medicine has made use of a strange mushroom for the sake of improving many maladies. This mushroom is a blend of fungus and insect larvae. It is called Cordyceps sinensis or Aweto.
Today, it is found in an array of supplements which are in capsule format or liquid tinctures. It is capable of doing many things for one's health.
It is a powerful antioxidant. For this reason, it is believed to fight off cancer cells in the body. It also fights of hepatitis. It is thought that this aspect of the supplement is also what makes it fantastic at keeping the immune system healthy and functioning optimally.
It also has properties that make it what some scientists call an adaptogen. What this means is that it is capable of working the adrenal glands so that they never get overloaded with stress. When the body has less stress, the immune system stays healthier.
This mushroom often comes in supplements that include other herbs and vitamins. It is important to check all ingredients on the produc t label. Sometimes, this supplement is used to keep blood glucose levels even in diabetes.
If you want to use it for immune system health, you want to find a formulation that is designed for that purpose. While you will likely get all the benefits from the supplement even if it is designed for something like diabetes, it is best to choose one specifically for the needs you have.
Enjoy the amino acids, vitamins E and K in the Cordyceps sinensis for optimal immune system functions, too. While this supplement helps keep the immune system healthy as an antioxidant, an adaptogen and a vitamin rich food, it also helps boost endurance levels. Because it will give you more energy to work out longer, you can enjoy the immune system benefits of staying active as well.
There are very few, if any, side effects. The most common are GI tract issues. However, these are mild. It is basically a very safe supplement to take.
You could also try and take it as the mushroom itself. However, this mushroom grows in high altitudes in Asia and is quite rare. As a result it is very expensive. You can trust that the artificially cultivated mushrooms that make up most supplements are just as effective as the real thing. Plus, they offer the same nutrients.
