New Roots Herbal Chaga
Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is a woody mushroom that grows on birch trees and has a black, scarred outer surface that resembles burnt charcoal, with a light interior. It is found in Russia on black birches, and on white birches in parts of Canada, Japan, and northern Scandinavia.
The primary active compounds in chaga are triterpenes, sterols, and polysaccharides, agents that are all known to strengthen immune function and cellular health. Triterpenes, that give chaga a bitter taste, exert a strong immune-strenghtening influence by increasing the body’s resistance to disease and by lowering cholesterol levels.* Chaga also contains inotodiol, a compound that aids in destroying abnormal cells.* Much of the research on chaga is focused on its ability to improve immune response, to lower high blood sugar, and to combat abnormal and mutagenic cell growth.* Chaga shows the capacity to not only stimulate immune response, but also to reduce inflammation.* Its ability to multitask on so many levels renders it a powerful adaptogen.*
Chaga strengthens the immune system and possesses strong antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties.* Chaga is anti-inflammatory, relieves pain, purifies the blood, and protects the liver.* In addition to being a rich source of antioxidants, this remarkable fungus is considered to be an adaptogen that supports overall wellbeing.* Although a relative newcomer, this unique mushroom is gaining popularity as an important addition to the medicinal mushroom category.
