In response to stress and pollutants, our bodies produce what are called “free radicals”, unstable molecules which can damage cells and DNA in a process called “oxidation”. Chaga is very rich in antioxidants that protect your cells from the oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
A diverse array of herbal and fungi medicines are classified as adaptogens. Their non-toxic, normalizing effect on the body may help to restore normal physiologic function and protect the body from stress-induced dysfunction.
Research suggests that Chaga stimulates bile flow, which is important in the body’s processes for digesting fat. It has also been known to reduce inflammation in the digestive tract.
Fungal polysaccharides, found in Chaga, have immunomodulating properties: they support balanced immune functioning. Not only do they support a sluggish immune system to ward off illness, they can also work to suppress the hyperactive immune functioning associated with inflammation and allergies.
Cover and simmer.
Do not boil.
Adults(18+) may consume one cup (250ml) of chaga tea per day.
Leftover Chaga tea can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Strained Chaga nuggets should be stored in the freezer until next use. Chaga nuggets can be reused 2–3 times.
