The 'CS-4' strain of Cordyceps was achieved by taking Paecilomyces hepialid Chen and Dai Cs-4 isolated from wild Cordyceps sinensis and producing a viable mushroom with the same chemical composition as the wild Cordyceps variety. This research took many years to complete and has resulted in a mushroom that is no longer destined only for the those who can afford it.
The Cordyceps fungi has a long tradition in Chinese medicine being the chosen supplement for emperors and other royalty. Legend tells how the fungi was discovered by Tibetan herdsman who observed their yak becoming sprightly after consuming a strange 'blue grass'. After experimenting on themselves it was discovered that the 'blue grass' was a fungi that sprouted from the heads of dead caterpillars under the earth. The properties then spread throughout China and was used accordingly by the Chinese upper classes.
The Cordyceps sinensis fungi has a 6 year life cycle and is found in the wild on the Tibetan Plateau. This strange fungi infects the bodies of caterpillars under the earth and sprouts through their heads to break ground resembling a thin blue horn. This is not the Cordyceps that is sold at Indigo Herbs but the wild variety. All Indigo Herbs Cordyceps is lab grown to ensure absolute purity and availability.
