- Hand-picked Canadian Chaga Mushroom
The immune system classifies Chaga as an adaptogenic Biological Response Modifier (BRM); not only it stimulates the immune function when necessary, but can also slow it down when it iss overactive. The beta-glucans is widely known to be responsible for the adaptogenic action, but many researchers believe it is actually the synergy between several, if not all constituents that are responsible for this. Because of this property, Chaga can be used to neutralize the side effects of pharmaceuticals, to compensate the age-related declination of our immune function, and, in general, to help us deal with abrupt stresses that negatively impact our daily functions.
Betulinic acid and the phytosterols in Chaga also play important part in boosting immune system. Betulinic acid, one of the unique components of Chaga, has demonstrated anti-HIV properties. In folk medicine, Chaga was often used to treat gastritis and gastrointestinal related problems. Since most ulcers are caused by bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori, a well functioning immune system will reduce the risk.
A high quality chaga extract includes the sclerotium, the outer layer of Chaga. Sclerotium contains a massive amount of a specific fungi-melanin and antioxidant, boosting your immune system further.
SUPPORTS CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH
There are two forms of cholesterol- LDL (Low-Density Lipoprotein) and HDL (High-Density Lipoprotein). Cholestrol helps with many body functions such as hormone production. However, a high concentration of cholesterol can clog and narrow your artery. HDL could actually work to remove cholesterol from artery, but LDL could be a artery-clogging plague. High LDL could jeopardize your cardiovascular health by constraining the amount of oxygen artery carries to the heart.
Research have suggested that betulinic acid, present at high concentration in Chaga mushroom, can help with breaking down bad cholesterol in the bloodstream. In addition, studies regarding Beta-glucans, a part of the polysaccharides in Chaga have left positive indications that it can lower cholesterol level.
