Chaga, like most mushrooms, is known to be incredibly nutritious, rich in vitamins, minerals, and an abundance of active nutrients. Chaga tea can provide protein, fiber, copper, calcium, manganese, vitamin D and vitamin B5, merely to name a few of its many nutrients.
Drinking chaga tea is an excellent way to keep your immune system in good shape. A number of chaga’s constituents offer antibacterial, antiseptic and potentially even antiviral effects, which assists the immune system in the elimination of damaging pathogens. Chaga has even shown effectiveness against parasitic worms. Chaga tea is also beneficial for boosting the immune system’s defenses with its polysaccharides, which stimulate the production of white blood cells. The betulinic acid also helps to regulate the immune response through its anti-inflammatory and fever-reducing effects.
