More on this Organic Wild Chaga Mushroom:
Chaga is another ‘unusual’ fungus that grows mainly on birch trees, primarily in Northern Europe, America and Siberia. The birch tree adds nutrients to the already nutrients dense fungus. In fact, Chaga has one of the highest ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value of any known food. The ORAC value measures the capacity of any food to neutralise harmful free radicals, thus preventing oxidative damage. Oxidative damage to our DNA has major implications with cancer for instance. The main antioxidant in Chaga is Super-Oxide Dismutase (SOD), which is an enzyme that reduces free radicals damage, caused by stress, poor diet etc.
Chaga isn’t often thought of when talking about nootropic supplements, but thanks to those important anti-aging(13) benefits, it makes this mushroom great for supporting brain health, especially if taken over long periods of time. In fact, Chaga may have ability to keep neurons healthy by fighting off the damaging effects of stress(14), toxins and aging. Unfortunately, as we age our brain cells naturally begin to deteriorate.
Chaga also contains B vitamins and beta-glucan, which makes it useful in boosting energy and immune function.
