Caterpillar fungus

Caterpillar fungus has been used for over 2000 years for its reputed abilities to treat many diseases related to lungs, kidney, and erectile dysfunction. The fungus is a medicinal mushroom which is highly prized by practitioners of Tibetan medicine, Chinese medicine and traditional folk medicines, in which it is used as a treatment for a variety of ailments.

In traditional Chinese medicine, it is regarded as having an excellent balance of yin and yang as it is considered to be composed of both an animal and a vegetable.
