It has been specially formulated for those who have a serious interest in maintaining good health, strength & longevity.
Each ingredient is selected from the highest ROYAL or TRIPLE A GRADE raw material.
Cordyceps sinensis, Ginseng & Fresh Royal Jelly are legendary and are all known to be Adaptogens, natural substances, which help the body to adapt and perform more efficiently when under stress of any sort such as physical, chemical or psychological. We refer to these 3 ingredients as the ‘CORDYCEPS GOLD ROYAL 3’.
The CORDYCEPS we use is harvested exclusively for us from the pristine environment of the renowned DOLPA region of the Nepalese High Himalayas by trusted Sherpa communities and has a raw material value well in excess of 3 times the value of pure GOLD!
Our Heaven Fresh™ Korean Red Ginseng is sourced from specially selected 6 year old Panax Ginseng roots and is considered world-wide to be the highest quality ginseng for both purity and efficacy.
Our Pure Fresh Royal Jelly is of the highest possible grade & purity and is known to be one of nature’s richest health foods.
Cordyceps sinensis is renowned for its extensive use in Ayurvedic Medicine and for being one of the most valuable biological resources in the world.
Ayurvedic healing is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems, developed more than 3,000 years ago.
Practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine also prescribe Cordyceps sinensis to improve sexual health & performance, support liver & kidney function, fortify the immune system and maintain general health & well-being.
Cordyceps is more popularly known in the West as ‘Himalayan Viagra’ or the ‘Love Fungus’ and its many health benefits eventually gained world-wide interest in the late 80’s and early 90’s when the Chinese women’s swim team made a big impact in the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea, by winning four silver medals in separate events. In Barcelona, Spain, four years later, they did even better, winning four golds and five silvers, dominating the freestyle sprint events and they have continued to perform at this high level ever since.
Articles started to appear in the press declaring that these amazing performances were due to the use of a special health supplement called Cordyceps sinensis.
Then in 1993, led by Wang Junxia, athletes coached by Ma Junren won the 1500m and 3,000m and completed a 10,000m clean sweep in the world championships in Stuttgart, Germany. A month later, these same athletes set world records for the 1500m, 3,000m and 10,000m in the Chinese national games in Beijing.
Their coach then informed the press that this was due to the inclusion in their diet of a drink containing Cordyceps sinensis.
Research had found that athletes consuming cordyceps sinensis were able to recover from strenuous training much faster than normal, allowing them to train harder and still keep at their peak performance.
In Nepal, Cordyceps sinensis is known as YARSAGUMBA, which translates as ‘summer grass, winter worm’ as it is found in the summer grasslands of the high Himalayas after underground caterpillars of the Himalayan Ghost Moth are invaded by a fungus called Ophiocordyceps sinensis, which then mummifies the caterpillar before pushing up through the soil making it visible to the eye of the Himalayan harvesters.
They are very rare and difficult to find, growing exclusively in the high Himalayan plateau, within isolated patches of alpine grasslands between 3,000 and 5,000 metres.
The search begins in May with some 30,000 people in Dolpa trekking through the mountains for weeks before reaching the natural habitat of Yarsagumba.
Collectors forage on hands and knees, searching every inch of terrain looking out for the magical Cordyceps stalk and this continues daily for over 2 months.
Yarsagumba has become the most precious economic resource for Nepal’s High Himalayan Region and although many scientists have tried to cultivate it in laboratories, simulating Himalayan conditions, they have been unable to do so successfully.
Due to it’s scarcity and world-wide publicity, both the demand and price of Cordyceps sinensis have skyrocketed with the price for authentic Himalayan sourced Cordyceps now fetching well over £100,000 per kilo.

Royal Jelly is one of nature’s richest health foods and is produced by worker bees to feed to their Queen. Within 5 days, the larva, which has been selected to become the Queen, undergoes phenomenal development and increases her weight by as much as 2,000 times.
Perhaps the most extraordinary effect of the Royal Jelly, is the reproductive capacity which the Queen develops, laying up to 2,000 eggs per day during the course of her life and laying over 3 million eggs during her lifetime.
Whereas the worker bees live for 30 – 40 days, the QUEEN will live for 3 – 5 years or 40 times as long as a worker bee!
The QUEEN’S immune system is also very powerful, being practically immune to all the diseases that would normally affect her hive.
The incredible stamina, fertility and long life of the QUEEN is attributed to her exclusive diet of ROYAL JELLY.

The final active ingredient of Pure Himalayan CORDYCEPS GOLD is New Zealand UMF20+ Manuka Honey
Manuka honey is harvested from traditional Maori lands of outstanding natural beauty in New Zealand, where the MANUKA tree grows in abundance. The honey is legendary amongst the Maoris for providing strength, health & vitality.
Modern research shows that it possesses strong anti-bacterial properties and is even effective against antibiotic-resistant MRSA strains. It also possesses anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
It has been traditionally used for wound healing, treating sore throats, preventing tooth decay and various digestive conditions.
A Saudi Arabian study found that Manuka Honey wound dressings, combined with conventional treatment, healed diabetic ulcers more effectively than conventional treatment alone1
Another study showed that it was effective in treating wounds infected by Staphylococcus aureus antibiotic-resistant strains2
A further Greek study showed that Manuka Honey reduced the healing time & disinfected wounds in patients with diabetic leg ulcers3
