Some of the many benefits of KINGS & QUEENS WILD HARVESTED CHAGA
- A leading natural adaptogen, CHAGA has a high ORAC value (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) that exceeds that of other known superfoods such as acai berries, blueberries, and pomegranates. ORAC is a measure of the ability of foods and other compounds to subdue oxygen free radicals. This assessment is based on Brunswick Labs performing tests that assign supplements an ORAC score as a way to compare properties between different supplements.*
- Although ignored in the Western world for hundreds of years, today chaga is emerging as a scientifically backed adaptogen. Adaptogens are natural substances that can help the body adapt to stress and help normalize bodily processes. Many are realizing Chaga’s numerous health benefits, and are finding that using it daily is a great way to increase energy without caffeine, fight the detrimental effects of stress on the body, and boost overall well-being.*
- The secret to Chaga’s immune-boosting power is in a chemical structure known as “chromogenic complex.” The chromogenic complex is measured as a percentage of polyphenols, which are the molecules that dissolve in water first (40–45%) during the chaga extraction process.
- Chaga mushroom also contains melanin compounds that may help to nourish the skin and hair, and may also protect the skin and hair from the damage that comes from aging and excessive exposure to the sun. Given this broad range of diverse health benefits Chaga is one of the most useful mushroom extracts for general immune support.*
In 1998, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration allowed the term “adaptogen” to be used as a functional claim for some products. In recent years, the definition has been updated, and adaptogens are now described as a new class of metabolic regulators of natural origin that increase an organism’s ability to adapt to environmental factors and avoid damage caused by them.
Adaptogens are not treatments or cures, but they are unique in their ability to enhance the body’s natural defense mechanisms against the stresses of daily life to support health. Adaptogens work in synergy with normal bodily processes without any serious side effects. The exact mechanisms of adaptogens are complex and not yet well understood, but we do know that they support the immune system and general health of the body. If you’re taking prescription medication, you should check with your doctor to make sure that adaptogens will not interfere with the effects of your medication.*
Adaptogens can help reduce the harmful effects of free radicals, caused by overexposure to the sun, consumption of fatty foods, radiation, pollution, and smoke. Free radicals damage cells, accelerate the aging process and interfere with healthy functioning of the body. Adaptogens help you bounce back faster from external and internal stress, and they also support your body in restoring immune function.*
