Researchers at the University of Bradford in the United Kingdom published the results of a study that involved 20 healthy participants and 20 irritable bowel syndrome (IBD) patients. An extract of Chaga mushroom was introduced and the researchers ultimately concluded the Chaga mushroom extract inhibits oxidative DNA damage in lymphocytes of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is caused in part by the presence of stress and free radicals that responded positively to this extract of the Chaga mushroom.
Chaga is a fungus that can be found growing on the decaying sides of birch in the colder regions of the world. It is quite common to Siberia, parts of Northern Canada and even in parts of the United States. Chaga helps to heal lesions in the bark of these trees, and gains vital nutrients in the process that are turned into substances beneficial to the human body. This includes significant amounts of riboflavin and niacin, numerous B vitamins, flavonoids, phenols, minerals, and enzymes. It is one of the world’s densest sources of pantothenic acid, a vitamin necessary for the adrenal glands and digestive organs. Chaga is also high in calcium, zinc, iron, manganese, copper and potassium, all wild-source minerals.
Chaga has been labeled an adaptogen. This is a substance which modifies the human body’s response to stress. Researchers are finding that perhaps as much as 80% of human diseases can be traced to stress – making the intake of Chaga more valuable. Many countries have been using Chaga for decades as a powerful stress-reliever in tea, capsule and tincture forms. A growing number of medical experts are joining the public in supporting the use of organic ingredients to treat human illness over chemical pharmaceuticals.
Other sources reveal that Chaga supports a better functioning immune system, keeping it stimulated and provides other notable antiviral and antibacterial properties that prevent some viruses from fusing to the cell membrane and helping human systems ward off HIV, Influenza, Hepatitis B and more.
Allure Imports, Inc. offers Chaga in two tea forms – Siberian Chaga and Chaga Gold, and as a capsule. Chaga tea is a soothing and refreshing drink that is enjoyable cold or warm.
Allure Imports, Inc. will continue to provide the public with research findings on the medicinal properties of Chaga mushrooms.
