Inflammation is an important part of your immune system’s response to infection, injury, and a less commonly known source – processed foods. Inflammation is your body’s way of quickly yelling, “Immune system! Come help over here!” when you physically hurt yourself or when a bacterial/viral invader attacks. Without inflammation, your wounds would linger on and infections would get out of control because your immune system wouldn’t get the message to step in.
The problem we’re seeing for millions of people today is the inflammatory response in their body never stops. It isn’t just happening when they get a cut or breathe in their neighbor’s flu virus, it’s a chronic situation because of the foods they eat all day long.
Chronic inflammation has been linked to heart disease and/or stroke, and may also lead to autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
So what's the solution?
Many studies over the past few decades have demonstrated Chaga Mushroom's antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, antioxidant, and hepatoprotective (liver-protective) properties, making it a powerful herb to have in your health and beauty repertoire.
Chaga contains beta glucans which have been shown to reduce inflammation and promote immune function. Chaga also rates among the highest in antioxidants on the ORAC chart, and is rich in melanin which works to keep skin supple and reduce wrinkles.
In addition to all this, Chaga is an adaptogen and helps the body combat stress, balancing all the body systems so hormones don't shift into overdrive, which taxes the adrenals and causes unnecessary damage and fatigue.
