Worm or weed? Cordyceps is neither of them. It is one kind of fungi like mushroom. And this kind of fungus contains some unique nutritional compositions, so it is known as the King of Chinese traditional medicine since antiquity. Over 400 species of Cordyceps fungus have been found all around the world, but only the Cordyceps sinensis which is parasitic on Hepialidae (i.e. bat moth) is recognized in Traditional Chinese medicine. Cordyceps mentioned in Chinese traditional medical books and other relevant research materials are all refer to Cordyceps Sinensis. In Japan, however, Cordyceps fungus is broadly defined as Cordyceps Sinensis by researchers.
In Japan, Cordyceps Militaris is broadly defined as “Cordyceps Sinensis”, which could be cultivated easily. But actually, Cordyceps Militaris and Cordyceps Sinensis are two different fungi. The fungus of our company is originated from the Tibetan plateau and it is the only Cordyceps Sinensis which is recognized in Traditional Chinese medicine.
Hypha is the most essential composition of Cordyceps Sinensis. Hyphae of Cordyceps Sinensis appear hoary inside larvae bat moth and fill up the mycelium. Hyphae of Fujiwara Cordyceps Sinensis share the same species and it could be identified from its colour.
Cordyceps Militaris, also known as cordyceps flower, is some kind of fungus parasitic on silkworm chrysalis. Easy to be artificially cultivated, Cordyceps Militaris is advertised as an alternate of Cordyceps Sinensis. These two fungi are different from their colour, scent and flavor, so basically saying, Cordyceps Militaris is not genuine Cordyceps Sinensis.
Genuine Cordyceps Sinensis only.

We provide technology to factory in origin and signed contract with it. Raw materials are sterilized in accordance with Japanese regulations, imported via regulated channel and pass JFRL safety and composition test. Products are manufactured by GMP certified factory in Japan.
In recent years, wild Cordyceps Sinensis once again aroused public concern. Overharvesting leads to less output of wild Cordyceps Sinensis. High quality mycelia with full hyphae are more precious. Fujiwara Corps uses biotechnology to produce Cordyceps Sinensis with hyphae from premium fresh cordyceps and realizes a safe and stable production.

可以被简单培养的蛹虫草（Cordyceps Militaris）在日本的广义的定义下被认知为“冬虫夏草”。但是蛹虫草本来就与冬虫夏草是不同菌种。本公司所用的菌种是产地为中国青藏高原的唯一被中国汉方中药认可的中华冬虫夏草菌（Cordyceps Sinensis）。
