Endorsements of Chaga

John Pezzuto of the University of Chicago is quoted as “ the activity of the Betulinic acid is one of the most promising discoveries amongst 2500 plant extracts studied.” The Betulinic acid contained in Chaga covers the full spectrum of immune stimulating effects found in similar medicinal mushrooms such as Maitake and Shiitake mushrooms.

Russian and Japanese medical professionals both contend Chaga is 100 times more effective than Ganoderma Lucidum or Phellinus Linteus. The International Agriculture Development Institute in Korea confirms such claims.

The Japanese Cancer Society claims Chaga plays an important role in combating cancer. Chaga reinforces the membrane of the cancer cells from spreading, prevents thrombi formation aiding in the fusion of medication, and its joint usage with pharmacology drugs and chemotherapy diminishes their side effects.

The Gandodelan A-B is responsible for blood sugar maintenance. Chaga activates the immunity system and arrests the excess production of allergen. Gandodelan A-B does lower blood sugar content quickly, in white mice clinical studies, by 60-89% in seven hours.

Chaga contains high levels of Beta Glucan – polysaccharides, a proven and potent anti cancer agent. Maitake does as well and many clinical studies attest to its potent anti viral and anti tumor effects. The Beta Glucans are powerful immune boosters, not by killing virus or cancer cells directly, but by stimulating the body’s ability to setup cellular defenses.

Numerous studies also indicate a 50% reduction in glycemic peaks are achieved due to the Beta Glucan effects on cholesterol levels.

There are over 1600 research papers on Beta Glucan activity including studies from Harvard Medical School, National Cancer Institute, the Department of Agriculture and others. These studies prove Beta Glucan are external immunomodulators to keep one’s immune system in a highly prepared state ready for combat against cancer like cells.
