What is Chaga?

Chaga is one of the best overall wellness mushrooms. It has one of the highest sources of antioxidants on the planet. Antioxidants protect your body from free radical damage. 

Chaga’s beta-glucans (a type of polysaccharide), have the power to boost the production of lymphocytes to balance the immune system. It is immunomodulating, it acts like an adaptogen for the immune system. It’s fantastic to take if you feel like you are becoming ill. 

Chaga also contains triterpenes (anti-infectious agents) that give it anti-bacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory uses. One of chaga’s most abundant triterpenes is betulin, which has anti-tumor and anti-cancer properties. These triterpenes help to restore balance to your entire system.
