W hat is Chaga and what are the Chaga health benefits. Inonotus obliquus is a medicinal mushroom that grows on a birch tree. For thousands of years “Siberian” Chaga was widely used in China, Japan and Russia. Chaga is documented as early as 100 BC as “The King of Herbs”, “A Gift from God” and “Diamond of the forest” Chaga is also referred to in Asian culture as the “Mushroom of Immortality”. It contains one of the highest antioxidant levels of any plant found on earth. It is off the charts on the ORAC scale. ORAC stand for Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity.
Chaga also contains very high levels of SOD which stands for Superoxide Dismutase, an enzyme that greatly protects against serious oxide damage. Studies have shown that SOD acts as both an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory in the body, neutralizing the free radicals that can lead to wrinkles and precancerous cell changes. Researchers are currently studying the potential of superoxide dismutase as an anti-aging treatment.
C haga has potent immune supporting properties. Chaga is a rich source of beta glucans, and polysaccharides that are essential nutrients for the immune system.
These polysaccharides have strong anti-inflammatory and immune balancing properties, enhancing the body’s ability to produce natural killer (NK) cells to battle infections or cells that are out of control. (Chaga contains 215 phytonutrients including 29 polysaccharide or beta glucan derivatives)
“Beta glucans are used for high cholesterol, diabetes, cancer, and HIV/AIDS. Beta glucans are also used to boost the immune system in people whose body defences have been weakened by conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, or physical and emotional stress; or by treatments such as radiation or chemotherapy.” Betulinic Acid is known to kill cancer cells and to inhibit tumours.
“The anti-cancer properties of betulin or betulinic acid, a chemical isolated from birch trees is now being studied for use as a chemotherapeutic agent. Chaga contains large amounts of betulinic acid in a form that can be ingested orally, and it also contains the full spectrum of immune-stimulating phytochemicals found in other medicinal mushrooms such as maitake mushroom and shiitake mushroom.”
