I hope this newsletter finds you in the best possible situation you can be in as we continue to quarantine and distance.
At the beginning of March, I started drinking a lot of Chaga Mushroom broth and Chaga Mushroom tea to support my immune system. (For all of my Memphis readers, you can purchase the broth and tea at any Raw Girls location.)
I also ordered Chaga extract powder to have at home to add to my coffee, hot tea, and smoothies.
And what I have to report is...this stuff is magic!
Chaga is a mushroom that looks like a piece of coal, but it is basically a nutrient-dense superfood. It has so many documented health benefits, from killing harmful cells to eliminating oxidative stress.
But not all Chaga is not the same! I have tried a few, and will share with you the kind that I love.
Even though I am totally enthralled with the health benefits, I am equally amazed at the benefits to my skin.
Chaga has been known to:
- Restore skin elasticity and aid in collagen production.
- Protect the skin against UV rays
- Slow down the aging process of the skin
- Regenerate the skin
I rarely get this excited about a product, but this one caught my attention for all the obvious reasons.
After two to three weeks of adding it daily to my coffee, hot tea and smoothies, there has been a noticeable change in my skin.
It's apparent to me that it helps in the promotion of collagen, restoring elasticity and smoothing out my skin. And it will also make your hair and nails grow, too.
But it's not immediate.
And it may not be for everyone.
It has a very *earthy* (acquired!) taste. But I have fallen in love with the taste and seriously add it to everything I am drinking that is hot.
Given everything that is going on in our world right now, I wanted to offer a possible way to help keep your body healthy and also get the benefits for your skin.
Please research this topic yourself and determine if it would be something that would benefit you. There is a lot of information out there for you to check out.
The Chaga extract that I am using is Sayan Chaga extract with Shilajit. The dosage is 1/4 teaspoon per cup of tea or coffee. This particular brand has proven to be the purest without any filters.
From our family to yours, stay healthy and continue washing those hands.
Until next time,
