History & Culture
Karma’s Cordyceps has been a dream for Karma Tsetar and his family for a very long time. Cordyceps Sinensis and its culture has been in the Tsetar family for 30+ years. This magical little plant/animal combination has been naturally grown in the Himalayas of Nepal for centuries. Cordyceps was known to the Chinese Elite and Royal Families for thousands of years and reserved for only the upper class due to its incredible health and longevity benefits. TheTsetar family is from Dolpo Nepal, a specific region where the highest quality of Cordyceps Sinensis is grown in the world, at an altitude of 5000 Meter’s above sea level.
Cordyceps Sinensis is a way of life in Dolpo where hundreds of townspeople come from all around to make the trek to the mountains to pick this natural occurring herb from the ground. Karma and his father both hand picked the herb for many years with their other family members who are still located in Nepal. After coming to Canada in 2008, Karma and his father were eager to bring Cordyceps Sinensis and its extremely powerful benefits to the Canadian people.
Having seen the major positive health impacts in Eastern cultures, they dreamed of bringing cordyceps awareness to North American’s everyday lives. However, life as a new immigrant in Toronto can be difficult while trying to integrate yourself in the culture, raise a family and work to establish oneself.
In early 2013, Karma Tsetar was introduced to Michael Santonato by a mutual friend. Karma shared his vision for Cordyceps Sinensis and his dreams to bring the powerful herb into North America and its people.
Michael immediately became inspired by Karma’s vision and wanted to help. As soon as that meeting concluded, Michael began planning and taking action on establishing Karma’s Cordyceps in Toronto. He devised plans, and created strategies to launch the little dream into a business that would serve thousands of people, raise health awareness and benefit the overall health consciousness of many.
Michael brings with him a strong background in Operations, Management, Sales and Execution, which made for a perfect match with the passion, knowledge and logistics of Karma’s ability to bring
Cordyceps Sinensis to Canadians.
