Bhutan Cordyceps healing power advices? Producing Cs-4 in this manner will ensure that the end product has a compound profile that is similar to that of wild harvested fruiting bodies. A cheaper, but way less effective way to produce Cs-4 is to grow the mycelium out on grain, similar to the production of grain spawn as done in commercial mushroom farming operations. Once the mycelium has colonized the grain, the grain is pulverized and dried- without first separating the mycelium from the grain! This results in an end product that is mostly starch, not anything closely resembling pure mycelium. Of course, there will still be most of the same beneficial compounds as in the pure mycelium, but in significantly lower concentrations.
Cordyceps harvesters will then dry the cordyceps, grade them accordingly and send them to the local auction markets before it becomes available to the rest of the economy. Auctions are restricted to registered Bhutanese traders. Auctions are conducted in the township of Bumthang, Wangduephordang, Gasa, Paro, Thimphu, Lhuneshe and Trashiyangtse typically at the Gup Office (county mayor).

Certain varieties of Cordyceps grow parasitically on the caterpillars of particular moths. Some species of Cordyceps are called “winter worm” (these mushrooms grow on a caterpillar, after killing it and filling it with mycelium) and “summer grass”. These endangered mushrooms only occurs in the high mountains (the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau) in southwestern China and Tibet. Fortunately, the mycelia of Cordyceps sinensis can also be grown domestically, using a substrate such as rice. See even more info on Bhutan Cordyceps Green Tea.
Potential anti-tumour effects: Preliminary studies propose that cordyceps may offer protection against cancer and inhibit the growth of certain types of cancer cells including lung, colon, skin and liver cancers. According to a study published in Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology in 2008, a cordyceps extract was able to trigger apoptosis (cell death) in breast cancer cells in test tube studies. Similar results have been seen with colon cancer cells. The cordycepins in the cordyceps appear to be toxic to leukemia cells. Studies in mice have also shown that cordyceps have anti-tumour effects on lymphoma, melanoma and lung cancer.
Health benefits and medicinal uses of Cordyceps? There are many claimed health benefits of Cordyceps – the likely reason why they are very expensive. Cordyceps are touted to have possible anti-cancer properties. Researchers at the University of Nottingham found that cordycepin, a compound extracted from Cordyceps, effectively stopped the growth of several types of cancers. At low doses, Cordycepin interfered with the production of proteins required for cell multiplication and tumour growth. At higher doses, Cordycepin directly induced cell death.
