Cordyceps in sports
American researchers have found that dietary supplements produced with Cordyceps significantly increase the strength of body muscles and organism endurance. The report on the scientific work has been presented at American Physiologic Society convention. It appeared that the extracts from the Chinese mushroom help body cells to absorb oxygen more efficiently, so athletes can sustain long-term exercise.
Recently Cordyceps products are used for training and various competitions not only by China athletes but also by athletes of the Baltic countries.
Products with Cordyceps usage scheme for athletes
At training athletes are proposed to use 7.5-15.0 ml elixir "Phoenix" or elixir "Sanbao" per day (before breakfast) and one "Linchzhi" capsule before lunch.
