The Benefits of Chaga Mushroom
Wild Chaga mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) might be one of the most important adaptogens ever! Its broad range of remarkable benefits makes it one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet. Hailed as “King of the Medicinal Mushrooms”, Chaga has shown through considerable research to have powerful immune boosting, skin nourishing, antioxidant supportive, and energizing effects.
Chaga has a rich history in Siberia Russia where the indigenous folk has been using this top mushroom for thousands of years as a health-promoting tea and tonic. It would serve as the best adaptogenic substance to increase the body's resistance to stress under the cold and harsh Siberian climate. Chaga grows on birch trees, almost exclusively, in birch forests throughout Russia, China, North America, Canada, Japan, and northern Europe. Its favourite birch tree host provides this fungus with high levels of unique compounds (such as beta-glucans, betulin, and betulinic acid) that offer unbelievable benefits for human health.
Chaga is a good source of vitamins and minerals which make it one of the most alkaline foods. Chaga is a top source of antioxidant enzymes, digestive enzymes, polysaccharides (beta-glucans), and other valuable compounds which give Chaga its potent immune boosting properties. Few foods on this earth, if any, have the incredible nutritional profile and the broad spectrum of benefits that Chaga holds. In Chinese medicine, it is referred to as the “gift of God”. The only known side effect of Chaga mushroom is excellent health. Chaga is the superfood of superfoods!
