Difference Between Cordyceps Sinensis and Cordyceps Sinensis

Pulished on Feb. 07, 2020

Cordyceps extract supplier to share with you:

According to data records: there are more than 350 species of Cordyceps fungi known all over the world, all of which belong to the genus Cordyceps. There are currently 62 species in China. For example, Cordyceps sinensis, Cordyceps asiatica, Cordyceps liangshanense, Cordyceps militaris, Cordyceps militaris, Cicada flower, etc.

In taxonomy, these fungi belonging to Cordyceps have a close relationship, but the similar relationship is not necessarily similar in function. For example, the medical book records: Cordyceps sinensis is used to nourish the kidney and lungs; Cordyceps asiatica is used to treat tuberculosis and hemoptysis; Liangshan Cordyceps has been used in medicine to replace Cordyceps sinensis in medicine, but in recent years, it has been basically defined as false Cordyceps sinensis in medicine; Cordyceps is used for women's blood circulation and menstruation; Cicada flower has a soothing effect and is used to treat children's scares.

In Cordyceps, Cordyceps is first recorded in Wang Ang's "Compendium of Materia Medica" (1694), and "Medicinal Herbal Preparation" mentioned "Cordyceps militaris, Gan Ping, protecting the lungs and kidneys, stopping blood and phlegm, and preventing cough. Cordyceps militaris, which was first published in the "Compendium of Xinhua Compendium of Materia Medica", has a "sweet taste, flat sex", and has the functions of "reinforcing the lungs and kidneys, replenishing the essence, stopping bleeding and reducing phlegm."

However, Cordyceps militaris and Cordyceps sinensis are significantly different.

Cordyceps only refers to the area that grows on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and its edges. Cordyceps is not artificially cultivated. It is the Cordyceps mycelium that penetrates into the larvae of the bat moth and consumes the nutrients inside. In the summer of the next year, the form of grass is formed.

Cordyceps militaris is generally produced in Jilin, Hebei, Shaanxi and other provinces. Cordyceps militaris is also known as Cordyceps militaris. The source is mainly the artificially cultivated Cordyceps militaris. Mycelium of Cordyceps militaris is an asexual Paecilomyces militaris. After maturity, the spores spread and spread with the wind, fall on suitable insect bodies, and begin to germinate mycelium. While the mycelium continues to develop, it begins to spread into the worm, so the maggots will be infected by fungi and break down the tissues in the maggot. The two grow differently.

Rare is expensive, and this rule is also believed in health products. Experiments have shown that Cordyceps sinensis and Cordyceps sinensis, the main health ingredient, Cordycepin.

Cordycepin, as the main component of Cordyceps, is particularly noticeable in the field of anti-cancer, and the internationally renowned academic journal "Cell Chemical Biology" published this latest research result online: the anti-cancer star-" Cordyceps sinensis does not contain pentastatin and cordycepin with anti-cancer effects!

Penestatin was first identified in bacteria in 1974 and was later proven to be a strong inhibitor of adenosine deaminase. Commercial drugs. Until this time, scientists discovered another identity of penstatin, the "natural protector" of cordycepin, whose innate mission was to protect the structural stability of the synthesized cordycepin. These two kinds of adenosine molecules are synthesized by the same gene cluster, and they function as a "protector" and a "protected person".

Cordyceps militaris extract biosynthesis mechanism in cordyceps sinensis and other cordyceps species cannot actually synthesize cordycepin and pentostatin.
