blood flow and delivers more oxygen throughout the
body, which naturally increases liver function and enhances the
liver's ability to fend off diseases like hepatitis as well as
the condition of high
regulates cholesterol metabolism, and high
cholesterol can be a symptom of liver dysfunction.
Promoting liver health and function can reduce the bad
cholesterol and increase the level of good cholesterol.
There is a large
body of research confirming the benefits of Cordyceps on liver function.
And, in Asia,
Cordyceps is commonly used as an adjunct in the treatment of
hepatitis B and C.
In one clinical study,
Cordyceps was used with the antiviral lamivudine for the treatment
of hepatitis B. The group receiving Cordyceps had much better
outcomes in a shorter period of time than the control group, which was
treated by lamivudine alone.
In another study
of 22 patients with post-hepatic cirrhosis, all
patients showed dramatic improvement in liver function after three months of 6-9 grams of Cordyceps
(high cholesterol) is a result of metabolic dysfunction and an indicator of increased cardiovascular risk. The
liver is responsible for cholesterol production and
elimination; therefore, it stands to reason that any disorder of the
liver could affect the blood levels of cholesterol and triglyceride.
Through many formal trials and clinical
observations, administration of Cordyceps has been associated with
cholesterol and triglyceride reduction and a healthy increase in the
ratio of HDL
to LDL cholesterol.
