Organic Chaga Mushroom Benefits
For centuries Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners have used Chaga Mushroom for general health, longevity, beauty, and as a remedy for the most serious health conditions. In Asian culture, the Chaga Mushroom is referred to as the 'Mushroom of Immortality' used to support a healthy immune system response, supporting a healthy detox response while also supporting a healthy nervous system. Raw Chaga Mushroom is a wonderful source of Melanin supporting youthful looks and vibrant skin. The Chaga Mushroom is known for its wonderful antioxidant properties and supporting a healthy inflammation response.
Today, the Chaga Mushroom is commonly used to support general health. Chaga Mushroom contains large amounts of phytonutrients and immune supporting compounds such as Beta Glycans and polysaccharides which may support the body's ability to set up cellular defenses. It has even been said that the Chaga Mushroom can balance metabolism and one's chi or vital energy levels.
The Chaga Mushroom is native to Western Siberia, Canada, and the USA and typically grows on the trunks of birch trees. Unlike other mushrooms with gills or caps, the Chaga has pores and is irregularly formed looking much like a burnt piece of charcoal. The Chaga is a parasitic mushroom that feeds on the white part of birch tree bark where the immune supporting substances are formed. This white part of the birch bark is also where the Chaga Mushroom obtains the powerful betulinic acid which may support the body’s fight of abnormal and uncontrolled cell division.
