Yarsagumba: Himalayan Viagra in Nepal – Visit Nepal

Most of you have probably heard of the Cordyceps Mushroom – recently health food craze praised for its ability to boost our immune system for healthy food and improve the way we use oxygen in our bodies, especially during exercise. More than gold for Yarsagumba Is valuable

Yet perhaps very few people know where it comes from.

Of the 400 species of Cordyceps, the most popular is Ophiocordyceps Sinensis (Yarsagumba), which is painstakingly pruned in the mountains of the Himalayas in areas of more than 11,500 feet in Nepal. Yarsagumba is actually the fragile, mummified body of the Himalayan bat moth caterpillar that has been invaded by a fungus.

Because it is already a rare phenomena, such as finding needles in a haystack, coupled with increased demand worldwide (it is regarded as a powerful aphrodisiac in Chinese medicine), more than gold for Yarsagumba Is valuable. We met these Nepali traders in an isolated village of Phu while they were buying from local villagers. They will sell to Chinese buyers for $ 100 / gram. If we wanted to buy on the spot, each of these Lil’ fungal mummies was $10 each.

The potential money promised to his business has become so valuable that local communities have literally killed the Yarsagumba turf. In 2009, seven people were murdered by a local mob in the Nepali village of Ner over Region. The men were attacked with sticks and knives and then their bodies were cut and thrown into the raging river to erase the evidence. Authorities had to trek to the remote village and a two-day hike to the nearest prison to eject 36 suspects.

This cautionary tale is a length that will go to humans to maintain their means to survive and to the possible consequences of our increased consumption of foreign products in a global world.
