Chaga mushrooms and benefits

Chaga is not the prettiest mushroom, but it sure has incredible health and healing benefits. Its main claim to fame is its high amount of antioxidants.

  • Antioxidant & anti-inflammatory properties: Chaga can slow aging by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation – two hallmark processes contributing to aging.
  • Improves cholesterol levels: Chaga can reduce LDL and increase HDL cholesterol levels, which is known to be beneficial for heart health.
  • Anti-cancer effect: Due to its antioxidant properties, and the triterpenes and β-glucans Chaga increases the body’s ability to fight cancer.
  • Other effects: Like many of the other mushrooms, Chaga improves blood glucose levels and boosts the immune system thanks to its high amount of β-glucans.
