Hey Cacao Community,
Let me tell you a little bit about just some of the amazing health benefits of Chaga Mushroom:
(1) Boosts Your Immune System
Chaga has a reputation of being a natural immunity booster, which has been the subject of several different studies.
The results of these studies on Chaga suggest that this tree mushroom actually promotes the formation of specialised proteins which stimulate white blood cells.
These are essential for fighting harmful bacteria and viruses.
Also, just like other edible mushrooms, Chaga contains a wealth of important nutrients.
These include, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, copper, phosphorus.
All of these nutrients contribute to your overall health and give your body the fuel it needs to thrive.
(2) Reduces Inflammation
Chaga mushrooms are high in antioxidants so they naturally reduce inflammation in the body.
This is very important as long-term inflammation is linked to various diseases, such as heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis and even cancer.
So the anti-inflammatory properties of Chaga may help lower your risk of these diseases.
Both the increased white blood cell production and anti-inflammatory properties are a clear indication that Chaga can help you fight off infections, from minor colds to even more serious illnesses.
By ‘cleaning up’ your system of bad and infected cells and assisting in the growth of healthy ones, Chaga promotes greater efficiency to combat disease.
(3) Lowers Cholesterol Levels
Studies have shown that Chaga extracts have a positive effect on cholesterol levels which reduces the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
These studies showed a decrease in LDL cholesterol levels and also an increase in HDL cholesterol.
LDL – low-density lipoprotein – can form plaques that make heart attacks and strokes more likely.
HDL – high-density lipoprotein – reduces, reuses and recycles LDL.
(4) Helps You Reduce Your Caffeine intake
This is especially true when combined with Ceremonial Cacao!
