USE CHAGA TO: Ward off the com­mon cold Have shiny, thick hair and glow­ing skin Lower in­flam­ma­tion caused by a busy, stress­ful life

If reishi is the queen of mush­rooms, then chaga is the big daddy, the im­pla­ca­ble and re­spected fa­ther of the mush­room world. The first recorded us­age of chaga dates to 17th- cen­tury Rus­sia, where it was widely used in folk medicine to treat every­thing from can­cers to gas­troin­testi­nal is­sues.

Like reishi, chaga has as­ton­ish­ing im­muno-mod­u­lat­ing pow­ers. Chaga polysac­cha­rides, specif­i­cally its beta-g lu cans, have the abil­ity to boost the pro­duc­tion of lym­pho­cytes ( white blood cell that reg­u­lates the im­mune re­sponse to in­fec­tious micro­organ­isms and other for­eign sub­stances). Chaga is also a rich source of an­tiox­i­dants. In fact, one dose of dual- ex­tracted chaga ( the typ­i­cal amount found in

a sin­gle cup of strong chaga tea) packs the same num­ber of an­tiox­i­dants as 30 pounds of car­rots.

For me, chaga has proven it­self to be a health mir­a­cle. I travel ex­ten­sively for busi­ness, so I am con­stantly ex­posed to diff er­ent kinds of germs. When­ever I feel the inkling of a cold com­ing on, I dou­ble my daily dose of chaga ( which is 1,000– 2,000 mg of strong chaga ex­tract). As a re­sult, I haven’t been sick in al­most a decade. I’m not claim­ing to be su­per­hu­man, but chaga has been re­mark­ably eff ec­tive at pro­tect­ing me against the com­mon cold. Ed­i­tor’s Prod­uct Pick: North Amer­i­can Herb & Spice Cha­gaMax
