Cordyceps are kind of ascomycete fungi known to humanity for more than 5000 years.
Cordyceps is a source of substances with proven pharmacological properties (eg. Cordycepin).
In the composition of Cordyceps have been detected 77 trace minerals, over 80 ferments, many essential amino acids and unsaturated fatty acids, polysaccharides, beta-carotene (provitamin A), vitamin E and C, zinc and selenium.
All Cordyceps species (more than 300), are endoparasitoids, parasitic mainly on insects and other arthropods (they are thus entomopathogenic fungi); a few are parasitic on other fungi.
The best-known species of the genus is Cordyceps Sinensis. A significant number of them can be found in Japan, Korea, and Thailand.
