Good health is key for both parents and children to lead a happy life. Proactive health habits are the most effective and you can aid a balanced diet with natural supplements that will help you boost your immune system which allows you and your family to avoid getting ill. A stronger immune system produces more antibodies and acts as a natural shield against harmful viruses and bacteria that would otherwise get you sick.
A form of supplements you can easily access is immune system strengthening teas made from Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) which is a type of mushroom that often grows on birch trees in northern Europe and Asia, Canada, and the northeastern United States.
It is safe for consumption for all ages (for young children or course with parental supervision).
Chaga tea contains a variety of substances such as polysaccharides, betulin, betulinic acid, and inotodiol, and is said to offer a number of health benefits.
It looks like burnt charcoal or a charred oversized marshmallow.
Chaga might stimulate the immune system. It contains some chemicals that have antioxidant effects. Chaga might lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
Chaga may also reduce fatigue and inflammation, and increase mental sharpness.
Clinical trials are needed to confirm safety and effectiveness for these uses. In addition, chaga may interact with some drugs and is high in oxalates, which may prevent the absorption of some nutrients and can be toxic in high doses.
Laboratory and animal studies show that chaga can activate some types of immune cells and can inhibit cancer progression.
Chaga tea contains of structural polysaccharides like chitin within its cell walls.
Those polysaccharides are good for you. The antioxidant effects keep you feeling younger and supports your immune system. The immune system is also strengthened by Beta-D-Glucans, which modulate the immune system and help normalize cholesterol levels and blood sugar.
Chaga tea is a very popular way to consume this superfood. It is easy to make, and you can use it every day. It can also be added to your regular tea or coffee. It won’t change the taste too much. Some say it will add a slight “mushroom taste” but compared to other healthy herbs like cinnamon, it doesn’t have a very strong flavor.
