MEDICINAL PROPERTIES OF SIBERIAN CHAGA
CHAGA MUSHROOM - THE MYSTERIOUS HEALER
The chaga mushroom has many known and undiscovered health benefits. Numerous studies in Russia and abroad have proven the therapeutic effect of chaga preparations, but the mechanism of the healing effect of chaga on the human body is still not fully understood. Scientists find it particularly difficult to explain the ability of chaga to improve the condition of patients with autoimmune diseases, because, in fact, it contradicts modern medical knowledge about immunity. In other words, it is still a mystery how chaga can improve immunity, but at the same time bring relief to patients with autoimmune diseases for whom immunomodulatory drugs are contraindicated.
CHAGA IS A POWERFUL NATURAL ADAPTOGEN.
Chaga balances the immune system, optimizing the body's natural resistance to disease and infection. Chaga is a natural modifier of the body's biological responses. The amazing properties of Chaga allow it not only to stimulate the human immune system when necessary, but also to suppress it when it is overactive. In other words, Chaga normalizes (adapts) immune function and is therefore classified as an adaptogen. This effect that chaga has on the immune system is mainly due to the polysaccharides (beta-glucans) contained in chaga, but many researchers believe that it is actually the synergy between several, if not all, of chaga's constituents that is responsible for its wide range of adaptogenic properties. The amazing healing properties of chaga allow it to be used to neutralize the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs, to compensate for the age-related decline in the body's immune function, to neutralize genetic immune disorders (as well as many autoimmune diseases), and to combat the stresses of modern life. Stress (mental, physical, chemical, environmental - change of seasons, urban life, pollution, etc.) has a huge negative impact on our body's ability to resist disease.
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AND ANTIVIRAL PROPERTIES OF CHAGA
These properties of chaga are of course related to its ability to strengthen the human immune system. In addition, the antioxidants contained in chaga in large quantities have a significant anti-inflammatory effect. Betulinic acid (a unique component of chaga) is currently being researched to study the possibility of making an anti-AIDS drug based on it.
ANTI-ULCER AND ANTI-GASTRIC PROPERTIES OF CHAGA
In folk medicine, chaga mushroom has long been used as a remedy for gastritis and other GI diseases. The use of chaga extract quickly brings relief from the symptoms accompanying these diseases. Pain disappears and normalizes the digestive tract. Within a week of using the extract disappear problems with constipation. In addition, contained in the chaga betulinic acid and phytosterols, also determine the healing properties of chaga extract. It is known that most ulcers and gastritis are caused by bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori. An organism with a healthy immune system is able to cope with this pathogenic bacteria on its own, just give it this opportunity by strengthening your immune system.
CHAGA IN ONCOLOGY
As an adjuvant in cancer treatment, chaga reduces the side effects of chemotherapy and other toxic drugs. The efficacy of chaga extract when used in combination with standard methods of cancer treatment, radio- and chemotherapy has been proven. Chaga compensates for the destructive effect of these methods on the immune system, helps to avoid the development of metastases (cancer cells that travel with the blood throughout the body are neutralized by the immune system before they cause harm). Due to these properties, chaga significantly improves the quality of life of patients before and after undergoing sessions of traditional oncology treatment. Moreover, studies show that chaga mushroom itself has anti-cancer properties, especially in the early stages of cancer. Some of the phytosterols and betulinic acid contained in chaga have shown their ability to directly destroy cancer cells. However, due to what exactly this happens, at the moment science is unknown, there are several theories, but so far none of them is not taken as an axiom. Chaga, it seems to have to study for a long time to finally understand the principle of its action. So, in the treatment of oncology chaga has both indirect (stimulates immunity to fight cancer cells) and direct (causing apoptosis - programmed death of cancer cells). It should be noted that the antitumor effect was noted only in the extract of chaga, made by aqueous extraction in factory conditions. The infusion obtained by a single soaking of chaga alone was shown to have no effect on tumors. This is important to know in order to avoid ineffective use of chaga preparations.
OANTIOXIDANT, REGENERATING AND REJUVENATING PROPERTIES OF CHAGA
A high quality chaga extract must necessarily include the sclerotium (the black, cracked outer layer of the chaga). This is very important, as this layer contains an array of specific mushroom melatonin, which makes a quality chaga extract contain a very high amount of antioxidants, thus turning chaga into a powerful rejuvenating tool. Studies on the effects of chaga extract on DNA cells have proven its regenerative and repairing ability. Virtually the entire body benefits from the use of chaga, a person begins to look better over time (skin and hair), and their internal organs perform their functions more efficiently.
The antioxidant "power" of chaga or any other plant product is determined by the ORAC-value.
CHAGA NORMALIZES CHOLESTEROL LEVELS
Chaga has a favorable effect on the cardiovascular system, maintains normal blood pressure. Studies have shown that betulinic acid (a component found only in chaga and birch bark) is able to break down "bad" cholesterol in the bloodstream. In addition, ß-glucans, which are part of the polysaccharides found in chaga, have also been shown to have a positive effect on cholesterol levels. By reducing cholesterol levels, chaga thus reduces increased pressure in the blood vessels and contributes to the health of the entire cardiovascular system: the number of blood clots and cholesterol plaques is reduced and the arterial walls become stronger.
ABSENCE OF SIDE EFFECTS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS
One of the many benefits of chaga is that it has no side effects whatsoever. Chaga simply stimulates the body to heal itself. There are no chemical or hormonal imbalances associated with the use of chaga. This makes medicinal mushrooms like chaga an ideal product for everyone. The only contraindication is the use of chaga extract together with immunosuppressants, which are usually prescribed to patients after organ transplantation. Chaga can neutralise the effects of these drugs.
