How does cordyceps work?
Cordyceps and sport form
Cordyceps in animal studies increased endurance and physical fitness in swimming and accelerated the process of reducing body fat. It activates AMPK kinase (similarly to the famous and forbidden AICAR), thus increasing the amount of ATP in the muscles. In addition, the bioactive components of the myca resin (adenosine, cordycepine) through purinergic receptors stimulate testosterone synthesis in the testes, while reducing the catabolic cortisol concentration and increasing the level of hemoglobin in the blood.
Cordyceps and cancer
Cordyceps is becoming an increasingly effective anticancer drug and it attracts many oncologists seeking evidence and answers to the questions posed. In laboratory conditions, some of the isolated components of maczdżnik killed tumor cells, while studies in humans indicate that it increases the effectiveness of chemotherapy, while reducing the number of side effects. What's more, cordycepine inhibits the uncontrolled growth of cancer cells and interferes with adhering to each other, which also hinders tumor growth.
Cordyceps and the body's resistance
Maczużnik stimulates the immune system: increases the number of T cells (cells in the thymus immune system involved in the formation of specific immunity, largely responsible for the cell's response after the antigen), stimulates the activity of macrophages (cells capable of phagocytosis or absorption and digestion of pathogenic microorganisms), increases the production of interleukin-1 (IL-1, cytokines responsible for the inflammatory process, stimulating the development of B cells and increasing leukocyte activity) and TNF-α (tumor necrosis factor), and also stimulates NK cell activity (Natural Killer).
