If you’ve read my blog post, Chaga Medicinal Mushrooms for Crohn’s and Colitis, you already know the numerous benefits of chaga mushrooms!

My physician first told me about this secret weapon and its benefits for ulcerative colitis (which I suffered from) during one of my office visits. He mentioned that new studies have shown that it can help induce remission in UC patients and can help in healing other IBD/gut conditions. It has been a game-changer for me, and I am so excited to share my experiences with you!

What are some of Chaga’s benefits?

  • Very high in antioxidants

If you’re interested in learning more about chaga, I highly recommend reading my blog post!

**Always consult your doctor, naturopath, or medical professional before beginning a new supplement. Medications that slow blood clotting (Anticoagulant / Antiplatelet drugs) can interact with Chaga. Taking Chaga along with medications that also slow blood clotting might increase the risk of bruising and bleeding. Chaga mushrooms can also lower blood sugar, which can make it dangerous for those taking insulin or other blood sugar-lowering medications.
