A delicious and healthy blend of organic* Canadian Chaga and organic* true ceylon cinnamon. A naturally caffeine free tea blend contain active compounds that protect and boost the immune system.
Organic Chaga Mushrooms are becoming increasingly known for their ability to inhibit tumor growth. Chaga is rich in antioxidants like Beta Glucan and polysaccharides like Betulinic acid which aid in cell death within a tumor. Chaga also helps to modulate the immune system and increase cellular energy and the growth of healthy cells. Chaga is a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-viral helping to reduce post operative infections by as much as 30%.
True ceylon cinnamon is loaded with known anti-oxidants like polyphenols helping to protect the body from oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
Cinnamon also has anti-inflammatory properties which help the body to fight infections and repair itself.
Cinnamon has been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease, the world's most common cause of premature death. In people with type 2 diabetes, 1 gram or about half a teaspoon of cinnamon per day has been shown to have beneficial effects on blood markers. Cinnamon is also known to help reduce blood sugar levels and has an anti-diabetic effect.
Cinnamaldehyde, one of the main active components of cinnamon, may help fight various kinds of infection.
Not all cinnamon is created equal. The Cassia variety contains significant amounts of a compound called coumarin, which is believed to be harmful in large doses.
All cinnamon should have health benefits, but Cassia may cause problems in large doses due to the coumarin content.
Ceylon ("true" cinnamon) is much better in this regard, and studies show that it’s much lower in coumarin than the Cassia variety
