R&R Cultivation's Chaga Powder is naturally and sustainable harvested locally here in Minnesota supporting local foragers. This buzzworthy product has actually been used for centuries for a variety of medicinal purposes. In addition, Chaga mushrooms are rich in a number of vitamins, minerals and nutrients. These include vitamin D, B-complex vitamins, iron, zinc, fiber, amino acids, and calcium.
The Chaga mushroom has gained traction as a supplement recently due to its numerous potential health benefits. Doctors, alternative medicine advocates, and researchers are all increasingly interested in this mushroom; past studies have yielded some promising results. Here are some of the purported benefits of this impressive mushroom.
Supporting the Immune System
Chaga mushrooms may support immune health. Some research on mice suggests that Chaga mushrooms help regulate the production of cytokines, proteins in the blood that play a vital role in stimulating white blood cells.
Too much inflammation can lead to chronic health problems in the body. Some illnesses have definitively been linked to inflammation, and others – including depression – may be partly due to chronic inflammation. Chaga’s role in regulating cytokines may also help control inflammation, which means it could help fight autoimmune conditions.
This amazing product is recognized as one of the world's best sources of antioxidants. Oxidative stress is what causes the physical signs of aging: wrinkles, dull skin, gray hair, and more. The antioxidants in Chaga mushrooms could slow or reverse the visible signs of aging caused by oxidative stress.
Add a teaspoon of our Chaga mushroom powder to your morning coffee, protein shake, or tea to gain its benefits. You can also steep the powder in hot water as you would a tea if you would like to consume the Chaga on its own. A bit of honey or sugar in this tea makes it a very healthy and enjoyable drink morning, noon, or night! For added creaminess, you can also turn your Chaga tea into a latte.
