On a daily basis, human beings face a whole host of bacteria, viruses and other dangerous pathogens that without our immune system we would not stand the proverbial snowball’s chance in hell. Too many of us wait until we actually display the symptoms of some disease before relying solely – and perhaps too much – on modern science. However, the immune system is not be ignored or taken for granted. We must tend to it like the well oiled machine that it is. One of the lubricants that helps keep the immune system up and running is Chaga. Among the many benefits of this nutrient rich mushroom that many are calling a “superfood” is that it helps to support and strengthen the immune system. Let’s take a look at how it works to support and things that might weaken the immune system.
How Chaga Strengthens Immune System)
For many centuries the herbalists in ancient China have known, without the aid of modern day research methods, the power Chaga possesses in aiding the immune system. Modern science has found Chaga to contain Beta-D-Glucans which help balance the response of the body’s immune system. Beta-D-Glucans are thought to do this by binding to and helping specific immune cells to achieve a well-coordinated attack on their targets (invading cells). Moreover, some preliminary research has shown that Chaga activates immune cells responsible for combating pre-cancerous cells.
Factors that Compromise the Immune System
Of course, it is pointless to rely only on Chaga to strengthen your immune system while ignoring factors that can weaken it. Those things include:
- Lack of sleep
- Poor diet
- Lack of exercise
- Excessive alcohol
- Some medications
- Poor hygiene
- Radiation exposure
Because any combination of these things can weaken and overwhelm the immune system, it is vitally important that we recognize the relationship they have to our overall health. Moreover, we should not rely on medications alone to help us after the fact.
Of course, we recommend that if you are taking prescription medications or on a specific diet that you consult your physician before taking Chaga even though it is considered safe for most individuals. If Chaga has been determined safe for you to consume, we recommend that you have it in a tea once daily to strengthen your immune system against attack from viruses and flu bugs. In addition to Chaga, we also sell colloidal silver gallon.
