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.
Principally found in the high altitudes of Western China, these original Planetary products, Full Spectrum Cordyceps 450 and Cordyceps Power CS-4, utilize specially prepared cordyceps mycelia. Full Spectrum Cordyceps 450 provides the same amount of cordyceps CS-4 extract (standardized to 0.1% adenosine) used in pharmacological studies. This is combined with cordyceps mycelia, grown on organic brown rice from spores originally gathered in the Himalayas. This combination insures a full spectrum of important cordyceps constituents. Cordyceps Power CS-4 utilizes the same CS-4 cordyceps, and is further combined with other renowned tonifiers of Chinese herbalism, including astragalus root, adenophora root, eucommia bark, Siberian ginseng root, atractylodes root, and ginger root.
