Chaga mushrooms are gaining increasing attention in holistic healing due to many areas that can be positively impacted, such as: boosting immune system, fighting chronic pain, providing anti-aging benefits, boosting energy, fighting stress, and more.
Another area that is gaining increasing recognition is the way that Chaga mushrooms can help the body fight free radicals. With an extraordinarily high amount of antioxidants in Chaga and a history of the substance being used in the fight against Cancer (in several countries), many women who have a high risk of Breast Cancer are now taking Chaga mushrooms as a proactive measure. In terms of fighting Cancer, some research has even shown Chaga to provide similar outcomes to chemotherapy but without many of the same negative side effects.
This blog is in no way suggesting that people forego treatment recommended by their oncologist for Cancer but looking at the positive results in medical research coupled with the historical data available about how Chaga has been used for centuries to fight illnesses, it’s definitely worthwhile to look at. The medicinal and adaptogen properties help the body’s immune system immensely and help people who are well and otherwise feel more energetic.
Beware of Imitations
Not all Chaga is equally powerful. Some synthetic Chaga is being manufactured / grown in sterile conditions and Chaga from some areas (such as Canadian Chaga and American Chaga) isn’t as potent as Siberian grown wild Chaga. Studies generally reveal that Siberian Chaga mushrooms are the most pure and potent Chaga mushrooms, probably due to the weather and conditions of the Siberian wilderness. While all Chaga may provide benefits for your health, those fighting and/or trying to prevent Cancer should seek out the most powerful Chaga available.
