We all know how it’s saying – the king of all mushrooms arereishi mushrooms, and the queen is chaga. Yes, it is that important, mainly because of its fascinating ability to regulate the processes in the nature and in the human body. Chaga belongs to the group medicinal mushrooms – polypora (Inonotusobliquus).
Recently Russia has conducted research and found that chaga is an excellent adaptogen, immunomodulator, destroys fungi, viruses and tumors, whether malignant or not. It has long been established that chaga destroys candida, which recently claimed to be the basic cause of all cancers.
It contains antioxidant, melanin, beta glucan, betulin / betulinic acid… Chaga, actually, takes these substances from the bark of the tree and deposits them. At the same time, it is extremely powerful and mild. Its most valuable ingredient is the betulinic acid and it normalizes the metabolism and effectively acts on all organs in the human body.
Due to the high amount of melanin, for which Russian researchers found out that protects against radioactive action, chaga is sacrosanct as protection against any kind of radiation. Algae, iodine and reishi are amazing as protection, but chaga is far above them according to its possibilities. For example, raishi mushrooms contain 2% pigment melanin, and chaga even 25%.
Beta-glucan is a modulator of the immune system, and this part of the magic equation of this mushroom is directed at combating fungi and cancer. The beta-glucan is part of polysaccharides which our body needs to function properly. It is located in algae, medicinal mushrooms, goji berries, for example. These basic sugars are rarely activate only with the standard diet, so it is necessary to be added in the form of medicinal mushrooms and minerals.
The chaga, as antioxidant, is far better than aronia, which is famous for this effect of it. Today, chaga takes the first place on the ORAC scale, which measures the level of antioxidants in food products.
This powerful mushroom prevents tumor development and destroys cancer cells, without touching the healthy ones. The chaga is acceptable in chemotherapy in addition to the conventional means, because it strengthens the immune system and alleviates the side effects.
The Russian scientists developed a system of microcapsules, which provides the contents of the chaga to easily penetrate in the skin and to act directly in the hotspot of the disease.
The chaga is a powerful mean against stress, as a causer of almost 90% of all diseases. Once the Soviet government had ordered its athletes and astronauts to use the chaga as adaptogen for improving of the brain and body functions. The ancient people of Asia used chaga for thousands of years for keeping healthy natural balance, believing that rejuvenates, prolongs the life and strengthens the body.
Chaga is also used as food, easily cooked in soup with added vegetables,as tea, dried, powder and as extract. However consumed, chaga shows outstanding results.
Russian Nobel Prize winner celebrated chaga – the famous mushroom extended the life of Alexander Solzhenitsyn for 55 years.
Russian dissident and Nobel Prize winner Alexander Solzhenitsyn, the one who from communist idealism passed bumpy road to spirituality, introduced chaga in the western world through its novel “Cancer ward”, published in 1968. In this autobiographical work we can read the agonizing quest of political dissidents suffering from cancer who were desperately trying to find a cure. The doctor, who gave them the classical medical therapy in the small hospital, accidentally noticed that the villagers from the nearby villages never suffered from this terrible disease, and the only difference from the others was that these were drinking chaga tea, because they had no money to buy real tea. Considering the fact that he wasn’t sure of the treatment results, the doctor to its patients, despite the regular chemotherapy, was giving the chaga tea too, which to Solzhenitsyn from the last stage of cancer led to the extension of his life until 2008. If we remember that this writer is born in 1918, we will realize how big is this success.
