Siberian Chaga "King of Herbs"Jacob
For thousands of years, one of the most important medicinal mushrooms on Earth has been the Chaga mushroom.
This amazing fungus can inhibit free radical oxidation and produce interferons, which help induce repair of DNA damage. They have this capacity, because the substances in the fungi contribute to the decrease of hypoxia and to the increase of the stability of the organism by correcting the metabolism of the cells. In addition to this, it contains anticancer properties such as betulin and betulinic acid.
Many can see this as another in a long line of “miracle cures” that have come and gone in recent decades. However, the difference with the Chaga mushroom, found in Russia, Korea, Eastern Europe, the northern areas of the United States, and the mountains of North Carolina, is that it has been used for thousands of years as medicine. In fact, the first known evidence that Chaga is used by humans comes from the “Ice Man,” a 5,600-year-old man who was found in the Italian Alps last century. It was documented in the Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing in 100 BC and proclaimed by the Chinese monk Shen Nong as a superior class of medicinal herb.
In addition to that, there are countless records of the Chaga mushroom that has been used in folk medicine and botanical medicine in Eastern Europe to treat cancer, ulcers, tuberculosis, and gastritis, since the 16th century.
Not surprisingly, this little herb has been called both “God’s Gift” and “King of Herbs.” It is intended to help preserve the youth of people, promote longevity and stimulate the immune system of the person who takes it regularly, which can be done orally through tea or powder, as well as inhaling it as smoke or apply it to the skin to heal rashes and injuries.
For anyone who is worried about suffering from health problems, or who is worried about old age, this miracle mushroom will calm their fears and, in some cases, help them live a life of over 100 years. While this may seem like empty promises, but unlike other ‘wonderful herbs’, this one has the studies to back it up.
In 1958, studies in Finland and Russia found that the fungus provided a period effect against breast cancer, liver cancer, uterine cancer, gastric cancer, hypertension, and diabetes.
In 1998, another study was conducted, this time in Poland, where researchers discovered that Chaga could inhibit tumor growth because betulin in the fungus selectively worked in tumor cells because the interior pH of tumor tissues was lower than that of normal problems, and Betulinic acid is only active at lower levels. In addition, the previous year it was discovered in another study that betulinic acid induces programmed cell death in tumors.
In 2005, a study found that the Chaga mushroom not only protects against oxidative DNA damage from human lymphocytes, but also has an indirect effect against cancer through immunostimulation.
This incredible mushroom, or King of Herbs, has been used for thousands of years by many cultures around the world. It is not difficult to see why, it is considered one of the best opportunities that people have to derail cancer cells, increase life expectancy and create general feelings of well-being.
More and more, more and more scientists are realizing that nature has the answers to cure the diseases that affect us. They are beginning to look back at the old folk medicines, and they, those “old wives tales” about certain herbs, may have been right.
