Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is a parasitic fungus commonly found in cold climates, typically in Siberia, Alaska and Northern Canada. Commonly found attached to birch trees, the infection eventually kills the tree and the mushroom soon dies after. However, this fungus is highly concentrated with minerals, vitamins, and nutrients, making Chaga a superfood.
Often used to brew tea, health benefits include:
|Boosts immune function. Chaga is famous for its high antioxidant content and Beta-D-Glucans, compounds that are important for balancing the immune response in the body.||Helps keep inflammation at bay. Chaga tea is filled with antioxidants that fight against free radicals and stop them from damaging your body cells.|
|Improves gastrointestinal health. Chaga tea can help treat digestion problems by regulating bile production, improving food breakdown.||Helps in detoxification. Chaga assists in the digestion and expulsion of toxins and synthetic materials from the body.|
|Regulates blood pressure. The high levels of antioxidants in chaga tea may help reduce oxidative stress, which is one of the leading causes of high blood pressure.||Fights against infections. Chaga contains strong antiviral and antibacterial properties, which may stop you from getting viral and bacterial infections.|
