    I think I read that the Chinese use cordyceps in some sort of herbal medicine brew for sexual performance. But then again, there isn't much the Chinese won't use to make a medicinal claim of sexual performance.

    While there is definitely alot of bizarre and scientifically unproven so called natural 'sexual performance' aids (ground up Rhino horn, Tiger penis, etc.), Cordyceps actually have some studies to back up their health enhancing effects.
    TCM (Traditional Chinese Medecine) is being more thoroughly scrutinized due to many of the health promoting substances being found.
