Chaga is an herbal plant that grows on the outside of birch trees in Siberia and northern regions of Canada. It is a very hard, crusty formation that resembles burned charcoal. How it grows is almost cancer-like as it draws nutrients from the tree to grow, but it doesn’t kill the tree. What it will do is provide amazing healing power to mankind including killing cancer. Nature sure confounds the wisest of researchers and continues to amaze us.
I was introduced to Chaga by Dr. Cass Ingram as he is a strong proponent of the herb and its healing powers. Chaga is rich in antioxidants called phenols. In research, it this property has shown to have very positive anti-inflammatory and immune boosting effects. There still needs to more research done on Chaga and its properties, but past Russian studies have shown it cured psoriasis, a condition that still baffles doctors today. A recent study showed Chaga inhibiting liver cancer cell growth and may help in killing other forms of cancer. Again more studies need to be done.
Chaga is an herb I take every day. Yes, I understand the immune boosting effects, but many don’t write about one of the most amazing effects from taking Chaga daily. The energy, stamina and endurance it gives a person very remarkable. People who take it like me feel they have gotten their life back. Want to hear something even more remarkable about Chaga? This herb actually increases your motivation to get things done. Are you avoiding cleaning that closet you keep walking by? Well, Chaga has the ability to motivate us in doing things we keep avoiding. I called this herb the ultimate ‘anti-procrastinating’ home remedy. Need an extra kick in the morning to get through the Monday morning blues, count them gone once Chaga enters your system. What I’ve personally found out is that Chaga works in as little as thirty minutes to get you going.
We all look at remedies and foods to increase our energy, but with stress, anxiety, fear and depression are so rampant in our society, we need a little kick in the behind to move us forward. Chaga is the kick we all need. Once your motivating gets turned on, you find yourself getting things done and you ignore the things that stress you out. When we get things done, we feel better and we feel accomplished, even if we just conquered that messy closet. Who knows, it could motivate you to inspire mankind or win the Nobel Prize. Just give Chaga credit in your acceptance speech, it’s that good.
North American Herb & Spice produces a product called Chag-O-Charge which is their powder version. They have many Chaga products in liquid extract, capsules and even a chocolate chunk form. The Chag-O-Charge is considered more tea-like, but I add mine in my morning smoothie. Some people add a teaspoon to their morning cup of coffee. Either way, it works.
Chag-O-Charge wild forest tea is wild, raw chaga mushroom concentrate harvested from wild birch trees. Fortified with white birch bark and purple maca, it is a potent source of antioxidants and nutrients. Chaga mushroom contains powerful active compounds such as sterols. polyphenols, betulin, and betulinic acid, the benefits of which are well documented. Chag-O-Charge is a source of vital trace minerals such as copper, iron, magnesium, and potassium, as well as B vitamins. It is also a top source of the antioxidant SOD (superoxide dismutase). Chaga has the highest ORAC and SOD levels of any mushroom and has been used as a whole food for centuries.
I’ve taken many anti-aging nutrients to help keep me young as long as possible and they all have their unique ways to help me do that, but Chaga is one that contains the SOD that we need to keep from losing those rungs on the DNA ladder. The longer we keep our DNA healthy, the longer we live. Take a look at the giant tortoise, the longest living being on Earth. They have very high levels of SOD and that’s because they produce the antioxidant enzyme internally. Now, we can all add the powerful SOD naturally by taking Chaga on a daily basis.
I’ve taken Chaga for a few years now and I this is one supplement I always tell everyone about because it works. If you read the third paragraph above, you’ll see the number reason why I take it. The motivational energy cannot be overlooked. Even Dr. Cass Ingram tells me it’s the very thing that keeps him going too. If your zest for life has left you, try the Chag-O-Charge and get that pep back into your step. Can man move mountains? Yes, when every cell of his body contains Chaga.
