Why I Prefer Cordyceps To Improve Energy Levels
Panax ginseng has its place. It is one of the strongest energy tonics you can take. It should not be taken long term though. You should see an acupuncturist to find out which ginseng formula is right for you.
Ginseng is always combined in herbal formulas for best effect. I like Ginseng Revitalizer from Planetary formulas. It is a good, balanced Chinese formula.
Ginseng is only taken as long as it is needed. It is not an herb to be trifled with.
The herb I recommend most to be taken long term is Cordyceps. Cordyceps is a superior kidney tonic. It also strengthens the lung energy. This herb can be taken as a tonic for longer than Panax ginseng. I strengthens and rejuvenates your body over time.
Cordyceps can also be effective for incontinence and libido. But, there is no downside to taking it like there is horny goat weed.
I hate it that horny goat weed is taken as a single herb. It is not used like that in Chinese medicine. In Chinese medicine, it is taken only in formulas and for a very short period of time.
I personally have taken cordyceps long term and I also put my parents on it to improve energy and improve kidney energy. If your kidney energy is weak, it is a Chinese medicine energetic diagnosis. It can be treated using acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Common symptoms of Kidney energy weakness are:
- Frequent urination
- Waking at night to urinate
- Low Back pain
- Knee pain and weakness
There are other symptoms, but those are the most common. Cordyceps can be used to improve kidney energy. It is my favorite energy tonic.
