The Chaga mushroom is growing quite the reputation amongst modern westerners and for good reason. After all, the Chaga mushroom may be one of the most health giving foods on the planet! While it would not win any beauty contest in demeanor, it would certainly deserve five stars in nutritional content and efficacy.
Now to the benefits:
1. Chaga is a natural immunity booster, an attractive quality-especially in today’s climate. The Chaga mushroom promotes the stimulation of white blood cells which as we know, are used for fighting harmful bacteria and viruses.
2. Chaga mushrooms are also loaded with nutrients such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron, zinc, and copper.
3. Chaga mushrooms are high in antioxidants too, which means that 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.
4. The Chaga mushroom can also help to lower cholesterol and promote healthy weight loss.
The Chaga Mushroom Powder sold in The Mercado is 100% organically grown, has had the cell wall extracted to allow for full absorption into the body, and includes a blend of the sclerotium + mycelium (the fruiting body and the root- all containing medicinal properties.)
