A note from @The_Smile_Enthuisiast, longevity coach and co-creator of our Medicinal Herbal Blends.
Chaga is an incredibly powerful medicinal mushroom that is highly sought after due to its phenomenal levels of antioxidants and healing properties. The antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and healing compounds found in chaga are easily and quickly assimilated and utilized by the body.
Chaga is rich in Vitamins A, C, B, D, and E, and minerals such as manganese, iron, calcium, zinc, and selenium. It also contains potent anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-candida, and anti-parasite properties. So for me, this is more of a “preventative” tool that I use often (but not daily). I also really admire chaga for being rich in beta-glucans, which can dramatically strengthen and reinforce my immune system, plus it also contains some hefty anti-inflammatory properties.
So what other sort of symptoms or conditions would I use chaga mushroom for?
CANCER! Chaga is one of the best sources of betulinic acid which is known to kill cancer cells on contact, and is particularly beneficial for colon, stomach, endometrial, lung, breast, and prostate cancer. Chaga is one of the top anti-cancer and anti-tumor foods, and is highly valued in a variety of natural cancer treatments and preventative protocols.
I would also bring chaga into my life if I suffered with any of the following…chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, irritable bowl syndrome, Crohn's disease, lymphoma, bursitis, shingles, HIV, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS, gout, scleroderma, osteoarthritis, cataracts and PCOS. Since chaga has tremendous anti-inflammatory properties, I would consume it regularly if I suffered with IBS, arthritis, colitis, cystitis, tendonitis, edema, asthma, celiac disease, and acne.
