Cordyceps - Extra Long Market Grade 50g
The Cordyceps mushroom, used for centuries for its health giving properties, is a cornerstone of traditional Chinese medicine and is native to the Himalayas in Nepal and Tibet. It is the most expensive ingredient in traditional Chinese medicine.
Western medicine has recognised the cancer fighting properties of the Chinese Cordyceps and it is under wider investigation for other therapeutic applications.
Due to increased demand, over harvesting and new harvest restrictions the top grades of wild the Chinese Cordyceps have reached prices of over $US100,000 per kilo. In 2016, the Chinese Government banned the sale of The Chinese Cordyceps from certain regions of Tibet due to unacceptable levels of arsenic toxicity.
The Chinese Cordyceps only grows in natural mountain environments and the annual harvest is very limited and is therefore only available to the wealthy. This situation has encouraged the marketing of imitation and adulterated products limiting their clinical efficacy and patient outcomes.
Cordyceps fungi are the source of many powerful medicinal compounds. Cyclosporine which is used for its’ anti-rejection profile in organ transplantation is derived from the family of Cordyceps mushrooms.
Cordyceps gunnii - The “Australian Cordyceps” - The Australian Alternative
Australian Cordyceps has the potential to provide an Australian grown therapeutic equivalent alternative to The Chinese Cordyceps for the Chinese market.
The ‘Australian Cordyceps’ mushroom is a native to NSW, Victoria and Tasmania in Australia. These areas are largely secret pristine native bushland. The mushrooms are untouched by pollution and are clean and green Australian produce.
The chemical composition of the Australian Cordyceps is very similar to The Chinese Cordyceps having all of the medicinal compounds at a lower price. Australian Cordyceps has demonstrated efficacy against cancer cell lines in the petri dish at The Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute in Victoria. Stomach and renal cancer cells were terminated by the extract in 24 hours and an “immortal’ cancer cell line was killed within 72 hours.
Mushrooms Australia harvest and source Australian Cordyceps during the season. The fresh mushrooms are then cleaned, dried, graded and packed for sale throughout the year. Supplies are limited by the amount of fresh mushrooms harvested and are available through “The Great Australian Mushroom Company.”
