Cordyceps Sinensis and Health
The risk of cognitive decline and dementia increases with age. Researchers have found a significant increase in the activity of antioxidant enzymes (glutathione peroxidase, superoxidedismutase, catalase), whose activity was decreased by the aging process. The (ultra) structure of the hippocampus, a brain area in which degenerative changes had occurred, increased strongly by supplementation with Cordyceps.
The research suggests that Cordyceps sinensis helps keep the brains healthy with age, both structurally and functionally, partly by improving the antioxidant status....
