Chaga Extract 30% Polysaccharides Powder
Premium Chaga Extract 30% Polysaccharides Powder. Chaga (Inonotus obliquus), found in Europe, Asia, Canada and Northeastern United States, are found to mainly grow on birch trees and has been long used in folk medication. Chaga contains substantial amounts of the pigment melanin. Exposure to the sun turns the mushroom a deep black colour, whilst the inside remains a bright orange-ish colour. Chaga also contains among the highest levels of oxalate of any living organism.
Alternative practitioners consider that Chaga offers abundant health benefits. Among them, Chaga is believed to fight inflammation, lower blood sugar, lessen blood pressure, improve arthritis, and even avoid or slow the development of cancer.
Chaga is rich in fiber and important nutrients, including vitamin D, iron, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and calcium. Chaga’s high melanin substance has led some to believe that it can bolster the melanin naturally found in the skin, thereby protecting it from sun damage, skin cancer, wrinkles, or aging.
In spite of these properties, there is little proof that Chaga can treat any medical condition. But a number of preliminary studies have hinted at potential benefits.
Chaga may help out, avoid or slow the development of certain liver problems. The Korean research team detailed that a water-based extract of Chaga was able to defend biopsied liver tissue from the oxidative effects of a chemical (tertbutyl hydroperoxide) notorious to cause liver damage.
It might also help lessen the inflammation and oxidative stress that fuels chronic liver diseases, such as viral hepatitis or non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Whether the oral administration of Chaga will have a similar result in humans has yet to be established.
Chaga may help manage or avoid diabetes. The hypothesis is based on the advantageous effects that plant-based polysaccharides contain on blood sugar. Those found in certain mushrooms, such as Chaga, are believed to be especially effective.
According to the research, rats with chemically-induced diabetes achieved near-normal blood sugar levels after being fed an oral solution of Chaga-derived polysaccharides for six weeks. The researchers think that the solution lessens irritation of damaged pancreas cells, allowing the insulin-producing organ to function more normally.
A published study suggests that Chaga may present anti-cancer effects. In a series of test-tube studies involving lung cancer cells, an alcohol extract of Chaga was reported to have triggered apoptosis (programmed cell death) in all cell lines.
