CHAGA

MEDICINE FROM THE FOREST

What is Chaga?

Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus) is a mushroom that typically grows on birch trees in colder climates across the Northern Hemisphere. It should only be harvested is colder climates for its max health properties. (1)

 

What health benefits does Chaga offer to health?

The health benefits of Chaga are numerous, many of which can be attributed to its immune-boosting ingredients and antioxidants. (1)

Chaga has been consumed for centuries in the East and is well known for its health enhancing benefits. More recently, Chaga has gained popularity in the West, where its numerous health benefits are now recognized by many health gurus. (1)

 

Chaga's Health Benefits

Immune System Support

Chaga has an abundance of Beta-D-Glucans that help balance the response of the body’s immune system. This means that Chaga helps boosts the immune system when necessary, but also slows it down when it is overactive. This makes Chaga a natural Biological Response Modifier (BRM). Research has also shown that Chaga activates immune cells responsible for combating cancer initiation. (1)

 

Soothing Properties

Chaga supports the integrity of blood vessels and provides soothing properties in times of irritation. This can be helpful for those suffering from pain, neuropathy, and even diabetes. (1)

Normalizes Blood Pressure and Cholesterol Levels

Studies have shown that the betulinic acid found in Chaga is able to break down LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) in the bloodstream. (1)

SODs

SODs are another important antioxidant present in Chaga. SOD refers to a group of enzymes called Super Oxide Dismutase. These enzymes play an important role in protecting our body against the destructive effects of uncontrolled oxidation and free radicals. SOD potency is measured by the S-ORAC score. (1)

Ulcers and Gastritis

Due to its immune-boosting properties, Chaga has long been used to support gastrointestinal health in Eastern cultures. Most ulcers are caused by bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori, so a well-functioning immune system can fight off this pathogen. Ulcers may be soothed by the use of Chaga, depending on the severity and the patient. (1)
