In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the health benefits of organic foods, natural remedies, and nutritional supplements. One of the most promising natural remedies that we have discovered so far is organic Chaga mushroom tincture. Chaga mushrooms, which grow on the bark of birch trees in cold climates, have been used for centuries in traditional medicine in Russia, Asia, and North America.
Chaga mushroom tincture is a concentrated extract of the mushroom that is made by steeping the mushrooms in alcohol and water. Bristol CBD’s organic Chaga mushroom tincture is triple-extracted with ultrasonic assisted extraction (UAE) technology used alongside the water and alcohol extraction. This process helps to boost the extraction of the beneficial compounds from the mushroom and makes them more bioavailable.
Recent scientific studies have shown that organic Chaga mushroom tincture offers many potential health benefits, including boosting your immune system, reducing inflammation, and fighting cancer.
Boosting Immune System
Chaga mushroom tincture is a natural immune system booster, thanks to its high content of beta-glucans, polysaccharides, and other compounds that stimulate the immune system. Beta-glucans, in particular, have been shown to activate macrophages, which are white blood cells that play a crucial role in defending the body against infection and pathogens. According to some studies, Chaga mushrooms may be even more effective than other popular immune-boosting supplements, such as echinacea or golden seal.
Inflammation is a natural response of the immune system, but chronic inflammation can lead to a range of health problems, including arthritis, allergies, and even heart disease.
Chaga mushrooms contain a number of compounds that have been shown to inhibit the production of inflammatory cytokines, including:
- Betulinic acid: This compound has been shown to inhibit the production of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), a pro-inflammatory cytokine.
- Inotodial: This compound has been shown to inhibit the production of interleukin-1β (IL-1β), another pro-inflammatory cytokine.
- Ergotsterol peroxide: This compound has been shown to inhibit the production of nitric oxide, a gas that contributes to inflammation.
In addition to these compounds, chaga mushroom tincture also contains antioxidants that can help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can contribute to inflammation. Chaga mushroom tincture can help reduce inflammation in your body, thanks to its high levels of antioxidants, including superoxide dismutase, which protects against oxidative stress.
The anti-inflammatory benefits of chaga mushroom tincture have been demonstrated in several studies. For example, one study found that chaga mushroom extract reduced inflammation in rats with arthritis. Another study found that chaga mushroom extract inhibited the growth of inflammatory cells in mice.
Some studies even suggest that Chaga mushrooms may help reduce inflammation in the brain and improve cognitive function.
One of the most exciting potential benefits of Chaga mushroom tincture is its ability to fight cancer cells. Chaga mushrooms contain compounds that have been shown to have anti-cancer properties. These include:
Beta-glucans: These fibers can stimulate the immune system and help it fight cancer cells.
Inotodiol: This compound has been shown to inhibit the growth of cancer cells in test-tube studies.
Betulin: This compound has been shown to reduce inflammation, which is a risk factor for cancer.
Some studies have shown that Chaga mushrooms can inhibit the growth of cancer cells and reduce the side effects of chemotherapy. One study, published in the International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms, found that Chaga mushroom extract was effective in killing human breast cancer cells in vitro.
Another study, published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, showed that Chaga mushroom extract could inhibit the growth of colon cancer cells in mice. However, more human studies are needed to confirm these findings.
Other Benefits of Organic Chaga Mushroom Tincture
Chaga mushroom tincture has also been shown to have other potential health benefits, including improving heart health, reducing stress, and boosting liver function.
One study, published in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine, found that Chaga mushrooms can help lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol levels.
A study published in the journal Phytotherapy Research found that taking 1 gram of chaga mushroom extract daily for 12 weeks lowered total cholesterol and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels by 15% and 28%, respectively. The study also found that chaga mushroom extract reduced inflammation markers.
Another study, published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, showed that Chaga extract could help improve liver function in mice with alcohol-induced liver damage.
Overall, organic Chaga mushroom tincture is a natural and effective way to support your immune system, reduce inflammation, and fight the onset of cancer. With more research studies underway, we anticipate that even more benefits of this ancient fungus will be discovered soon. Organic Chaga mushroom tincture can be found in Bristol CBD’s shop here.
