Dr. Cass Ingram discusses how to use Chaga.

Wild chaga is the richest known source of that all-important antioxidant enzyme which protects the body tissues, SOD (superoxide dismutase). It is also a dense source of melanin, beta glucan, biological sterols, vitamin D2, and rare trace minerals. These rare trace minerals incude rubidiium, cesium, and germanium. This is what makes wild chaga an ideal whole food supplement to support a healthy anti-aging and whole body function response, the optimal daily adaptogen and immune potentiator.

Google Scholar is my favorite research site for exploring the scientific studies. Here the results of my most recent look at the studies.

Remember, Chaga is a food. Chaga is not a drug. These scientific studies reveal the powerful benefits to be found in nature. Discussion of the studies does not create a drug claim. All benefits discussed are nutritional only.*

368 – Fortify and Optimize Your Immune Response

Your body comes with its own built in defense system that is always on surveillance to protect you from immune challenges and more by responding to attacks as they happen. Sometimes that is not enough. The challenge two-fold. The first step is to fortify our nutrition in order to support our natural immune function.* For many people this is works very well. So this would be considered as foundational.

But even the most diligent natural health consumer will be exposed to something at sometime and begin to experience symptoms of the emerging threat. The best response is to begin your program to bolster your immune system for an increased and immediate defense. I have found that if I begin my emergency protocol AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, then I most often can stop or blunt the effects. The longer one waits, the greater the risk of being affected to a greater degree. Time is of the essence.
