2. What is Cordyceps?

Dong Chong Xia Cao is formed from the Cordyceps parasiting on larva of the swift moth of Hepialidae. In winter, this fungus lives inside the larva's body which is hibernating inside the soil, whereas in the summer, the fruiting body of Cordyceps inside the larva's body protrudes from the soil. This explains the name "Dong Chong Xia Cao" meaning "worm in winter and grass in summer". Dong Chong Xia Cao is a precious nourishing medicinal material and is cherished as one of the three rare nourishing TCM delicacies along with Panax ginseng and Pilose Antler. Previous investigations suggest that Dong Chong Xia Cao has reliable medicinal applications without any known side effects, making it an ideal health food supplement.
