Chaga mushroom is a type of fungus that grows mainly on the bark of birch trees in cold climates, such as Northern Europe, Siberia, Russia, Korea, Northern Canada and Alaska. Chaga produces a woody growth, or conk, which looks similar to a clump of burnt charcoal. However, the inside reveals a softcore with an orange colour. For centuries, it has been used as a traditional remedy, mainly to boost immunity and overall health. They are high in fiber and rich in antioxidants.
Chaga mushrooms also:
Help to fight inflammation (inflammation is a natural response of your immune system. However, long-term inflammation is linked to conditions like heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Studies suggest that Chaga extract can positively impact immunity by reducing long-term inflammation and fighting harmful bacteria and viruses. By promoting the formation of beneficial cytokines — specialised proteins that regulate the immune system — Chaga stimulates white blood cells, which are essential for fighting off harmful bacteria or viruses. What’s more, other studies demonstrate that Chaga can prevent the production of harmful cytokines, which trigger inflammation and are associated with disease (including gut damage))
Help to lower blood sugar levels (a study in obese, diabetic mice observed that Chaga extract reduced blood sugar levels and insulin resistance compared to diabetic mice who did not receive the supplement. In another study in diabetic mice, Chaga supplements led to a 31% decrease in blood sugar levels over three weeks)
Help to lower cholesterol (Chaga extract may also benefit cholesterol levels, reducing the risk of heart disease. In an eight-week study in rats with high cholesterol, Chaga extract reduced “bad” LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol and triglycerides while increasing antioxidant levels. Similar studies gave the same results and observed that — in addition to reducing “bad” LDL cholesterol — chaga increased “good” HDL cholesterol. Researchers believe that the antioxidants present in chaga are responsible for its effects on cholesterol).
