Chaga August 29 2013

Traditional use

 

Chaga has been used for centuries as traditional medicine and in rituals for people around the world, such as Woodland Cree in North America, Ostyaks in West Siberia and Ainu people in Hokkaido island, as well as others in Northern China and Korea.

We are now rediscovering those wonderful benefits.

 

Properties

 

Chaga is useful in the treatment of gastritis, gastrointestinal problems and stomac ulcers, thanks to betulinic acid and phytosterols.

 

 

Chaga is chock-full of several antioxidants

 

- Polyphenols, useful in the prevention of degenerative disease.

 

- Super oxide dismutases, naturally present in our body but decreases with age. They protect our body against the destructive effects of uncontrolled oxidation and free radicals.

 

Anti-inflammatory properties are linked to antioxidants and immune supporting properties.

Chaga has a positive effect on inflammation

such as arthritis and degenerative arthritis.

 

Sclerotium, the black outside layer of the Chaga; contain a massive amount of melanin, giving you a very high level of antioxidants.

 

 

 

Strong anti-aging properties

 

Antioxidants are a powerful anti-aging tool. They help your skin and hair look better and your organs stay healthier.

 

Great for the immune system

 

The Beta-D-Glucans help to regulate your immune system and normalize an overactive immune system, (which may cause allergies and many auto-immune diseases as lupus and psoriasis).

 

Medicine made from betulinic acid present in the birch tree’s chaga are currently being researched for their anti-HIV properties.

 

Lowers cholesterol

 

Chaga polysaccharides ß-glucans have a positive effect on cholesterol levels; by normalizing those levels they contribute to lower high blood pressure and promote a healthy cardio-vascular system with less plaque and stronger arteries.

 

Helps cancer treatment

 

Chaga is effective in supporting standard cancer treatments such as chemo-therapy. It helps compensate the devastating side effect these treatments can have such as nausea, insomnia, poor appetite, fatigue, etc. It helps preventing metastasis. Chaga can significantly contribute to the quality of life during and after treatment.

 

 

 

Chaga also has an anti-cancer and anti-tumoral potential, in particular during the early stages of cancer due to betulinic acid and phytosterols.



Other use

 

Chaga can also be smoked in powder or used as encent in rituals and ceremonies.

Chaga is a great coffee substitute, with no stimulant effect.

Chaga can also be used in smoothies, salsa or other culinary preparation.

 

 

Sustainable harvest

All our harvest results from birches of the Laurentian, because Chaga of birch tree is superior-quality.

Our
Chaga is harvested in respect of the environment. Only Chaga of mature tree is collected, and only Chagas from 3 or 4 years are taken. A piece of the mycélium is always left on the tree, and the young Chagas are left so they can reach maturity.
