Long used in traditional Russian medicine as an adaptogen and blood purifier, Chaga has also been found to be effective against several types of cancer including cervical, breast, lung, stomach, and skin cancers...and also used for a wide treatment of ailments including gastritis, ulcers and tuberculosis. The Chaga mushroom has been used in Russia as a folk medicine since the 16th century and Literary Nobel Prize winner, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, credits Chaga with curing his Cancer. It was approved as an anti-cancer drug in Russia as early as 1955 and has showed anti-viral activity against HIV and influenza.

Recent studies have shown that Chaga Mushroom has very high antioxidant compounds. It is highly recommended that people increase their antioxidant consumption to 7000 ORAC units a day to help lower their risk of Cancer.
ORAC stands for "Oxygen Radical Absorbent Capacity". This is a scale that measures the amount of free oxygen radicals in your body that a food or supplement can absorb. Free oxygen radicals are formed in our body from normal daily living, electro-magnetic radiation, processed foods, electricity, pollution, sun exposure and various other unavoidables. These free radicals bounce around our body beating up on our cell structure and organs, making us more susceptible to diseases and aging faster. As an example, cigarette smoke is full of free radicals. Ever notice how much older smokers look?
Chaga has the highest reported ORAC score found in natural foods. Chaga also has Polysaccharides, that other medicinal mushrooms contain, and Triterpenes only found elsewhere in Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma). So ingesting Chaga Mushroom on a daily basis ensures that you are addressing these free radicals on A DAILY BASIS!
