Is Chaga anti inflammatory?
Because chaga can be used to start fires, it is also known as the “tinder fungus.” Chaga is rich in natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phenols, containing the compounds betulin and betulinic acid – which derive directly from host birch trees.
Chaga Tea and Sleep. The reason chaga tea may help you achieve a better night's rest is that studies have shown that it may help reduce stress and anxiety. Those with stress or anxiety may have a harder time sleeping. So by reducing these negative influences, it's easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.
- TRUTH: The old saying that 'lightning never strikes the same place twice' is another myth that any veteran storm observer or researcher has seen nature defy. Lightning can strike any location more than once. In fact, given enough time, it is actually inevitable.
- Heavy equipment such as bulldozers and backhoes with rollover canopies are safe during thunderstorms, but riding mowers and golf carts are not. While a car provides some protection from lightning, as the metal frame directs lightning currents to the ground, vehicles can still be damaged by a strike.
- In strong electric fields, rubber tires actually become more conductive than insulating. You're safe in a car because the lightning will travel around the surface of the vehicle and then go to ground. This occurs because the vehicle acts like a Faraday cage.
Bring 12 cups of water almost to boiling point (175 degrees or 80 C. )- turn down to low & add one of the following: 1- Chaga Tea Bag or 1/4 cup Tea Grind and steep approx. 5-8 hrs. Chaga Chunks weigh out 1.3 oz. for a 12 cup pot and steep for 6-8 hrs.
- Chaga mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) is a fungi that grows on birch trees and is the most potent antioxidant on this planet. It tops the other famous antioxidants such as green tea, moringa tree and many more.
- Chaga mushroom is an adaptogen. Chaga mushroom tea has a pleasant and oh so slightly bitter taste with a hint of vanilla and reminds of a blend between strong black tea and coffee without the nervous jitter as it does not contain caffeine or any other stimulants.
- It grows perennially, and can be found year-round. Poisonous look-alikes: There are no poisonous look-alikes to this fungus. There are other non-chaga cankers that grow on other species of tree, so do not harvest chaga from any species but birch (Betula species).
