Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis) is one of the most valued tonics of ancient Chinese herbalism. According to traditional Chinese texts, cordyceps was used for the purpose of "strengthening the energy of life," and in particular to "build the gate of vitality." Today it is widely gaining recognition as a premier tonifier of world-class athletes. Cordyceps recently received wide attention when Chinese runners, after taking this traditional ingredient, broke the 1,500 and 10,000-meter long distance world records, both within a short period of time.
