Cordyceps sinensis is een kostbare medicinale paddenstoel die in China en andere Aziatische landen al zeker 2000 jaar wordt geclassificeerd als een tonicum dat het Yin (de structuur) voedt en het Yang (de functie) versterkt, en daarmee de gezondheid en vitaliteit verhoogt. Cordyceps is sinds 1964 officieel geclassificeerd als geneesmiddel in de Chinese farmacopee, en wordt binnen de traditionele Chinese geneeskunde (TCM) onder meer ingezet om vermoeidheid, nachtelijk zweten, lage rugpijn, verminderd libido, impotentie, hyperglycemie, hyperlipidemie, uitputting door ernstige ziekte, luchtwegaandoeningen, hart- en vaatziekten, nierziekten en leverziekten te behandelen. Van oudsher wordt Cordyceps gebruikt om de vruchtbaarheid van mannen en vrouwen te versterken, en het staat vooral bekend als afrodisiacum dat de geslachtsdrift verhoogt bij zowel mannen als vrouwen, vooral als deze minder is geworden met de leeftijd. Dit komt mede doordat Cordyceps de biosynthese verbetert van steroïdhormonen (cortisol, testosteron, oestrogeen), waarvan de productie daalt met het ouder worden.
