March 05, 2018 0 Comments

Chaga has been used for centuries by many different people from the Khanty in Siberia, the North American 'Woodland Cree' Tribe and is revered within Traditional Chinese Medicine. A common traditional use was to make a tea and we think its a pretty delicious way to consumer Chaga too!
Chaga has a plethora of health benefits, which are mainly due to the fact that Chaga is one of the top 10 anti-oxidant dense products on the planet. These anti-oxidant compounds have some extraordinary health benefits, including; Immune Support, Anti-inflammatory, Anti-viral, nootropic, blood sugar balance and cholesterol balancing.

Polysaccharides (anti-oxidants)
Chaga’s anti-oxidants (polysaccharides) are responsible for most of its attributed health benefits, protection against radiation is one of those that has been researched, along with balancing the Immune support by supporting the production of natural killer cells, and helping suppress the spread of many types of cancers.
Chaga is also packed with melanin's which are high molecular weight phenolic (anti-oxidant) compounds. Melanin is responsible for the dark surface colour pigment of Chaga. Melanin is present in small amounts in the human body and is needed to facilitate a wide range of health benefits, notably the synthesis of vitamin D and the protection against UV rays via our largest organ - the skin, helping us look healthier on the outside as well as the inside.
Strengthening, balancing, supporting and regulating the immune system, optimising immune response (great for winter).
Helping the body adapt to stress.
Chaga is packed with anti-oxidants with studies suggesting its compounds have the capacity to provide support for the immune system and its ability to modulate it.
