RIAVITA CorsyMAX® 12X is an extract of mycelium (fungal filaments) grown from the spores of Cordyceps Sinensis (Tibetan caterpillar fungus) from Tibet, combined with Rhodiola and Ginseng extracts and other ingredients.
Folk observations that the caterpillar fungus (present in Corsymax) has an energizing effect on both animals (e.g. yaks) and humans in general, and is a supporter of a longer, healthier life, have now been supported by scientifically demanding experiments.
In addition to improving vitality, several lesser-known beneficial effects have been identified and studied. For example, the immunomodulatory and anticancer effects – as explained in detail below.
Cordyceps sinensis or Tibetan Caterpillar fungus is a multifaceted medicinal mushroom with a wide range of benefits including immune system support, energy level and sexual boost, and anti-aging.
Panax ginseng extract is used primarily to improve psychological function, exercise performance, and immune function. Traditionally, it was combined with the Caterpillar fungus in many herbal decoctions.
Rhodiola root extract can be used to combat fatigue, reduce stress and increase mental and physical performance and fitness, and resilience.
Astragalus extract is used to protect and strengthen the immune system, preventing colds and upper respiratory infections, and protecting liver health.
Grape seed extract contains strong antioxidants that help alleviate the oxidative stress, inflammation, and tissue damage that associate with chronic conditions.
What is Cordyceps Sinensis?
According to the experience of Tibetans, the fungus Cordyceps Sinensis grows “in the caterpillar in winter, in the grass in summer”.
As can be guessed, the Cordyceps fungus has 2 main life cycles. Its spores attack the caterpillars, in which it lives as a parasite in winter, and then, after the fungus has consumed the nutrients found in the insect, it grows a fruiting body in the summer. In nature, this fungal species grows only in three regions of the Himalayas – Tibet, Nepal, and Bhutan – at altitudes above 3000 meters.
