Based on these theories, most of researchers paid attention to the anamorph
of Chinese Cordyceps, and its metabolites, such as cordycepin, cordycepic acid and other nucleosides, etc., but ignored the active constituent from other endogenetic fungi.
Candida is the most representative, but that occurs because there are a great number of asexual phase (anamorph
) species classified in this genus, which is a polyphyletic group [5,16].
Some traditional Chinese therapies include using Hirsutella sinensis (the anamorph
of Cordyceps sinensis), Antrodia cinnamomea, and Ganoderma lucidum as an energy booster; water mycelium extracts of this fungus have been known to reduce LPS-induced endotoxemia when used on high-fat diet mice  (Table 1).
sinensis and its anamorph
possess a variety of biologically effective compounds with extensive pharmacological effects .
