Mushrooms, a research paper by by Christopher Hobbs, L.Ac., A.H.G.
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 bodys 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 ones immune system in a highly prepared state
ready for combat against cancer like cells.
