Cordyceps sinensis is a parasitic fungus that grows on caterpillar larvae native to the high-altitude regions of China, Nepal, and Tibet. This superfood has been well known for centuries in Chinese herbal medicine, and especially intriguing to modern medical researchers for its ability to inhibit the growth, division, and proliferation of cancer cells in the body as well.
