Top 3 Benefits of Chaga

Chaga Mushroom

One of the first things you will notice when you read the fine print on our Mushroom Gummies is that every serving contains an equal amount of our four hero ingredients. While you won’t be surprised to hear that all four of those ingredients are indeed mushrooms, what many of our customers don’t realise is that every single one of those mushrooms brings its own benefits and properties to the table.

Chaga is one of the four – and despite making up 25% of our formula, is taking its place under the spotlight for the purpose of this article.

So, let’s get right to it. What is Chaga, what do you need to know about it, and why does it deserve an equal measure in our Mushroom Gummies?

What is Chaga?

Chaga is a fungus which grows on tree trunks and is particularly partial to a birch tree. Not a particularly attractive mushroom at first glance, it seems rather ironic to us that Chaga is such a rich and potent ingredient in aesthetic and beauty supplements – however, with its high antioxidant levels and plant compounds, it is one of the best natural ingredients in our armoury.

Why we love Chaga

Here at Feel Güd, every one of our gummies is made to an exact formula which has been years in the making – taking inspiration from old wives’ tales and traditional remedies and combining that information with more exact sciences and assurances.

Chaga is one of four mushrooms which, when combined, create a gummy which may improve your mood, optimise your productivity, boost your immunity, and provide you with a natural hit of energy.

So... what role does Chaga specifically play? 

1. Chaga is a natural anti-inflammatory which supports immunity

First and foremost, Chaga is recognised as one of the world’s leading natural anti-inflammatory supplements and is up to five times more potent than açai, turmeric, and blueberries – all known antioxidants.

The heavy dose of antioxidants found in Chaga means that it is one of the best natural ingredients for boosting the immune system – aiding the body in the fight against disease, the common cold, inflammation, and subsequent issues which can be caused or exacerbated by inflammation. 

2. Chaga is great for your skin

Skincare enthusiasts listen up – this one’s for you. We probably don’t have to tell you that products which are high in antioxidants are good for the skin. Antioxidants present a whole range of benefits beyond their link to the immune system as mentioned above, protecting the cells from free radical damage and slowing down the process of aging and cell damage.

Antioxidants can also help to protect the skin from UV damage caused by the sun, and when combined with a potent sun cream with a high factor and UV protection can decelerate skin aging as a result of environmental factors.

Other benefits associated with antioxidants – and thus with the consumption of Chaga which is so high in antioxidants – include an improvement in hydration, stimulation in the natural production of collagen, and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. 

3. Chaga lowers blood sugar levels and cholesterol

This article has so far been pretty heavy on the aesthetic benefits of Chaga as well as the optimisation of the immune system – but that doesn’t mean that this mushroom isn’t also working hard beneath the surface.

Chaga has been known to help lower blood sugar levels, making it a potentially beneficial supplement for those living with diabetes. In addition, the links between Chaga and lower cholesterol mean that those who take a regular Chaga supplement may be less likely to develop heart disease. 

The benefits of Chaga for Feel Güd Customers

What all of this tells us is that Chaga presents a plethora of benefits, from aesthetic benefits supporting the natural health and vitalisation of the skin, to an optimised immune system.
