If you’ve yet to hear about chaga, then you’re in for a treat. Chaga is a medicinal mushroom that we love dearly and we want to share with you all the wonderful properties today. Read on for chaga mushroom health benefits...

Chaga is renowned as an anti-ageing mushroom with more antioxidants than well-known superfoods açai, pomegranate, and blueberries...

That's right, chaga has more antioxidants than açai!

Used for thousands of years in the Arctic regions, wild chaga is revered for being one the most adaptive substance on the earth. Tribes in its native growing regions use chaga to assist the body's natural capacity to resist stress; in such an extreme climate, adaptive substances are precious!

Chaga is well-regarded in Scandinavia, Russia, China, Japan, Canada and other temperate regions as a health tonic. For the full download on this potent mushie, check out our Incredible Benefits of Chaga Mushroom article.

Chaga, otherwise known as Inonotus obliquus, is a medicinal mushroom that grows on birch trees in temperate climates. It's actually not completely accurate to call it a mushroom - rather, it is the sclerotia of the mushroom that grows on the birch trees and humans harvest for its medicinal value.

Chaga has a symbiotic relationship with the tree on which it grows. What’s most amazing about chaga is that its DNA structure is 30% more human than it is plant! Birch, chaga's preferred host tree, is itself a powerful medicinal plant, and much of the potency of chaga comes from the alchemy that occurs when the birch and the chaga meet. 

 

Chaga's Powerful Benefits

Anti-ageing, supportive to our cells, anti-inflammatory

Chaga is one of the best natural sources of the antioxidant, liver-cleaning, cell membrane-protective, genoprotective, longevity enzyme known as superoxide dismutase (SOD). Chaga contains more SOD than other rich sources such as barley grass, seaweeds, marine oils and even some essential oils. SOD repairs cells and reduces the cellular damage caused by the most common free radical in the body called superoxide. Chaga  is amazing for reducing inflammation, regenerating skin and other tissues in the body (it's great for eczema and psoriasis) and lessening pain associated with conditions such as arthritis, as well as extending life span in those who consume it. SOD is naturally occurring in human tissues, but declines with age, especially after age 30. Chaga now has been studied in nearly 1000 clinical trials, and the health benefits are clear, especially in treating complex illnesses regarding cellular dysfunction.

 

Supports the immune system

Chaga is rich in beta glucans, which help balance the body’s immune response. Chaga is an immuno-modulator, in that it is is useful in both under- and over-active immune conditions (great for autoimmune disease sufferers).

 

Better blood sugar

Chaga has a powerful effect on blood sugar regulation; animal studies show its benefits for reversing Type 2 diabetes in 90% of mice. If that’s not enough, chaga has been shown to protect the intestines, reducing digestive inflammation (great for those suffering IBS and colitis). 

 

Happy intestines

Chaga has been shown to reduce digestive inflammation (great for those suffering from ulcers, gastritis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and colitis). Chaga is also antiparasitic and antiviral, so helps keep the digestive system in tip top condition.

 

Healing nutrients

Chaga is super high in triterpenoids, botulin, trace minerals (copper, chromium, selenium, zinc and more), major minerals (calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and more), vitamins (B2, D2), amino acid complexes and many more.
