Cordyceps’ Origin Story
Native to the Himalayan Mountains and revered as one of the most treasured herbs in parts of Nepal, Cordyceps mushrooms are a long-known and dearly held tonic of the Mykot tribe. They have traditionally used Cordyceps to support a healthy libido, energy, and stamina.*
As the story goes, when spring arrived in the high mountains, the people of the Mykot tribe would take their yak herds to graze at higher elevations. The yaks grazed on the fresh spring grass and searched for the Cordyceps sinensis mushroom. Then in a frenzy, they would begin rutting. The herdsmen observed the yaks and wondered what gave the animals their vitality amid such a high elevation. Upon closer examination, the herders discovered that the animals were eating an unusual mushroom, one that grew from the body of dead caterpillars. Curious herdsmen experimented with eating the mushroom. From then on it became a desired foraged fungi, worth its weight in gold.
