CHAGA ACTIONS
SKIN HEALTH
MISTY DAY PLANT POTIONS
Interestingly chaga can look like a scaly outcrop on a smooth
surface – like psoriasis. Chaga is highly antioxidant and contains
melanin which is thought to protect against environmental UV
damage in the skin. A 1973 Russian study showed a complete
resolution of psoriasis in 50 subjects treated with a chaga decoction.
There is anecdotal information to suggest that chaga reduces the
redness associated with sunburn but the evidence lacking. Dont
ditch your sunscreen just yet!
THIRD EYE OPENING
From a more esoteric side, melanin ín chaga is thought to help to
nourish and decalcify the pineal gland or third eye, awakening
intuition and oneness. The pineal gland also secretes melatonin which
is like a very gentle sedative so probably helpful for enhancing sleep
quality. Some think of chaga as a gateway between the dreamworld
and the reality world.
ADAPTOGEN
Chaga is thought to have qualities consistent with adaptogens.
Adaptogens are herbs which help to bring the body into balance,
especially during times of physical, emotional or environmental stress.
