Caterpillar mushroom from China: Viagra from the Himalayas


Precious Himalayan Viagra: The Chinese caterpillar mushroom - a potency miracle cure

The Chinese caterpillar mushrooms with their shriveled bodies and their heads that look like twigs don't really look appetizing. However, this fungus, which can only be found in the Himalayan region, is considered a miracle cure for potency problems, cancer, tumors and viruses. Because of its rarity, it costs almost as much as gold.

For many, the caterpillar mushroom also has the name "Viagra from the Himalayas" due to its potency-increasing effect. It is even said to help with cancer. "In the past the demand was not that big, but since we know what it is worth, there is a lot of controversy about it among the neighbors," said Zande Gongba, dealer of this rare animal. Recently, two people were killed when it came to the right to who can collect on the hills around Tongren. Recently there were photos on the Internet showing villagers armed with machetes facing dozens of police officers. "Violation contradicts the beliefs of everyone who believes in karma and Buddhism," warned the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of the Tibetans, from exile to his countrymen. "We know that's not a good thing, but that's life and it has to go on," Gongba comments on the riots while sitting in a dark and dirty room under a picture of the Dalai Lama.

Butterflies serve as hosts
The Chinese also call it "winter worm, summer grass". He attacks his victim, the caterpillar, and eats it so far from the inside. Collecting the caterpillar mushrooms is hard work and is often done by the sons of poor farmers. Depending on the season, people in this very poor region earn more than two euros for a mushroom. They are sold at higher prices. The buyers also include the Chinese upper class, who not only use the caterpillar fungus as medicine, but also as an addition to various dishes at luxurious dinner parties.

These are the new cheap Viagras
But it is precisely the healing power of the parasite that has led millions of Chinese to spend huge sums. "We have stomach and breast cancer patients who are basically cured after ingesting half a kilo of caterpillars," says Yang Mengxian, the runs the largest mushroom shop in Tongren. "Others have problems with reproduction. They cook the mushroom with a chicken to make a soup that they drink once a week. This gives them a great sex life and no longer a problem having a child." From a scientific point of view, the effects of the fungus cannot yet be confirmed. But that does not detract from hysteria. The entrepreneur Shen Tong from the eastern province of Zhejiang has already converted the equivalent of caterpillar mushrooms. The 49-year-old drinks a cup of tea every day, which he prepares from five caterpillar mushrooms. "It tastes and smells fishy," says the entrepreneur, who costs the drink 23 euros a day. "You have to take the caterpillar fungi regularly over a long period of time, at least three years. Only then will the healing powers develop. However, it is very unlikely that he will be a serious competitor for pharmaceutically manufactured Viagra in the future. (Fr)
