Cordyceps 60 capsules - organic extract from Cordyceps sinensis | Vitals
Vitals Organic Cordyceps sinensis is a fungus that is traditionally used in Chinese herbal medicine. Vitals Cordyceps Cs-4 is cultivated in the USA in an isolated, sparsely populated and very clean area. The cultivation of Cordyceps occurs in sterile spaces on a bed of rice. Organic Cordyceps consists of mycelium of the funghi that have the highest concentration of phytonutrients and is similar to the traditional Chinese Cordyceps. The biomass of the entire growing medium and mycelia in this product provide a broad spectrum of physiologically active compounds.
Cordyceps has been traditionally used in Chinese medicine for strengthening Qi (energy). The modern use of cordyceps includes energy enhancement, stamina and immune function.

Influence of the moon on our behaviour
For the longest time, people have felt the influence of the (full) moon on their behaviour.
Especially on cloudless nights, many of us feel an urge to go outside and enjoy watching the full moon. Some will even go so far that they will go on a nightly hike or bike ride.
If this urge still persists today, how influential must the moon it have been in the past when we only could rely on light of the sun, moon and fire?
This is why so many people believe how lunar cycles can and do influence many other aspects of our behaviour and health.
The most persistent one is about its influence on menstruation cycles, fertility and even on the gender of babies. It's not too difficult to understand where this belief comes from: after all, a lunar cycle is almost as long as the average menstruation cycle.
However, until recently, scientists haven't been able to confirm most of the claims.
Only a short while ago it was confirmed how indeed, the full moon does have an impact on the length of our sleep. Even those who live in an urbanized environment, feel the effect of the full moon on their sleep cycle, even though it is far less pronounced than for indigenous people living without artificial light.
About time to explore whether the moon cycle really affects other aspects of our health and/or behaviour.
Tips and tricks to keep your house cool without airconditioning
After having survived the hottest two weeks of the past century, and hearing about the deliberate choice to switch of the power in some areas of California as it became impossible to match the demand for electricity, due to the massive use of airconditioning, this week's topic had to be about how to keep your house and yourself cool without needing to rely on energy-guzzling airconditioning.
How to make better food and lifestyle choices
Particulate matter and your healthAs the Dutch government decided to move away from natural fossilized energy sources, we are moving towards solar and wind energy.
Because solar and wind energy cannot provide all energy and a decision to also move away from natural gas, biomass plants seemed to be the perfect solution.
Biomass is plant or animal material used for energy production (electricity or heat). It can be purposely grown energy crops, wood or forest residues, waste from food crops (wheat straw), horticulture (yard waste), food processing (corn cobs), animal farming (manure, rich in nitrogen and phosphorus), or human waste from sewage plants.
Burning plant-derived biomass releases CO2, but it has still been classified as a renewable energy source in the EU and UN legal frameworks because photosynthesis cycles the CO2 back into new crops. In some cases, this recycling of CO2 from plants to atmosphere and back into plants can even be CO2 negative, as a relatively large portion of the CO2 is moved to the soil during each cycle.
However, over the past few months it has become clear how a lot of biomass comes from trees, that were previously pristine forests in the USA or the Baltics.
While in the best case, the use of biomass could even be CO2 negative, burning biomass will result in excessive CO2 output locally as well as of particulate matter.
This is why almost overnight, due to negative public opinion, politicians changed their mind. Too late though, there are already few hundred biomass plants that are being constructed due to substantial subsidies that were handed out, so we can expect a substantial worsening of air quality in the upcoming decade(s) because of the increased amount of particulate matter.
How to prevent getting sick from the flu
You can prevent germs from making you ill in two ways: prevent entry into the body by careful hygiene, and if they do get in, make sure your body’s natural immune system is able to fight these germs, so they self-destruct before overwhelming the system.
Most flu germs are spread in two ways:
- touching such as hand-to-hand contact
- droplet spread when germs ride along on tiny water droplets that are sneezed or coughed into the air
Try these flu prevention tips to avoid person-to-person spread:
- avoid shaking hands, but bow or give a head nod
- avoid nose-picking as the nose is a breeding ground for germs
- sneeze into a disposable handkerchief and if you don't have one available, sneeze inside your elbow
- shun coughers and sneezers as much as possible.
- avoid crowded rooms
Magic mushrooms: boosting immunity and fighting inflammation
As we transition from summer into autumn, our thoughts automatically go to walks in the forest to enjoy the beautiful foliage and by consequence to the many beautiful mushrooms that flourish in this moist yet warm season.
There's a good reason mushrooms are so popular in nearly every world cuisine.
While low in carbohydrates and calories, mushrooms are a great source of B-vitamins, trace minerals, fiber and even offer some protein.
But mushrooms offer more, they have anti-inflammatory properties and contains high levels of beta-glucans that keep immune cells alert, plus a powerful antioxidant called ergothioneine that helps lower body-wide inflammation.
The medicinal use of mushrooms has a very long tradition in Asian countries that dates back thousands of years. Although their use in the Western Hemisphere only started increasing in the past several decades, numerous recent studies show that they are vital, biologically active compounds with significant benefits to health.
Usefulness of herbal medicine in modern timesNatural plant products have been used throughout human history for various purposes. In fact, written records of the use of herbal medicine date back more than 5000 years, and for much of history, herbal medicine was the only medicine.
Today, plants are being used to treat a number of health concerns and conditions, including allergies, arthritis, migraines, fatigue, skin infections, wounds, burns, gastrointestinal issues and even cancer, proving that it’s true that food is medicine. These herbs are less expensive and they’re a safer means of treatment than conventional medications, which is why so many people are choosing to go back to this traditional idea of medicine.
Breathe in, breathe out!Did you ever notice you don't have equal air flow through each nostril? Most people alternate between breathing through the left and the right nostril. The only time you are vividly aware of the existence of such a cycle is when you have congestion in just one side of the nose, which results in only being able to breathe more easily every few hours and then feel congested in the other period.
Take 1 or 2 tablets twice a day or as directed by your qualified health care consultant.
Take for at least 4-6 weeks for maximum benefits.
