Chaga Mushrooms to Improve Your Health

Published on April 25, 2017, in Uncategorized.

Wild-grown Chaga, the best mushroom super food elixir that greatly improves your health and well-being.

Chaga Mushrooms are known for their immune enhancing abilities. They have high levels of anti-oxidants that protect cells from damaging free radicals. These powerful antioxidants fight against bacteria, viruses and inflammatory diseases.

Chaga has immune-modulating properties that make them helpful in treating auto-immune disease.

The Chaga mushroom is also an adaptogen, which helps us cope with stress. Adaptogenic mushrooms bring the body back into balance and have a beneficial effect on the nervous system, immune system, the GI tract, the cardiovascular system and the endocrine system.

Adaptogens support the body’s system over time and therefore need to be taken for a minimum of two months to develop the full effect of their healing power.

Enjoy a cup or more of Chaga tea/elixir daily. The best Chaga mushroom tea has a pleasant taste with a hint of vanilla. The mouth-feel resembles a blend between black tea and coffee without the caffeine or any other stimulant.

It is an excellent alternative for people who must stop drinking coffee due to adrenal fatigue or other reasons.

Chaga makes a great base for a healthy Chai drink and kombucha. Chaga kombucha can be made at home. By itself, this kombucha has a very smooth taste. It can also be blended with fruit for an added sparkling effect.

What are the Silica benefits in Diatomaceous Earth?

Diatomaceous Earth and Silica Benefits

The Silica benefits in Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE) are numerous.

Silica supplementation not only improves the appearance of hair, skin and nails, it is also an important trace mineral needed by humans to survive and thrive.

Silica is a necessary component for healthy tendons, cartilage, blood vessels, and bones. It contributes to the health of almost all vital organs, including heart, liver and lungs.

In the past, humans consumed enough silica in their food. The silica once found in food is being minimized by modern farming techniques that deplete the soil and by the over processing of foods.

Silica is water-soluble and does not remain in the body for very long, supplementing with diatomaceous earth is therefore beneficial. As little as a heaping teaspoon per day in water, juice or a healthy smoothie will give you all the silica you need.

Along with the Silica benefits, Diatomaceous Earth also removes harmful organisms from the digestive tract, stimulates digestion and increases absorption of nutrients.

Chaga Mushrooms Immune Boosting Super Food.

Published on April 17, 2017, in Chaga Mushrooms.

For those who aren’t familiar with Chaga, it is a mushroom that grows on birch trees in the coldest climates. By flourishing and surviving in these extreme conditions, Chaga possess profoundly powerful health benefits:

When properly brewed Chaga has a sublime flavor, smooth and rich. It will give you an energy boost without any caffeine.

Chaga supports and balances the immune system. This super food has an abundance of Beta-D-Glucans that make it a natural Biological Response Modifier (BRM). These substances stimulate or suppress the immune system to help the body fight cancer, infection and other diseases.

Chaga supports the integrity of the blood vessels and provides soothing properties when they are irritated. This can help those suffering from pain, neuropathy and other diabetic symptoms.

Chaga is an incomparable source of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). It is one of the strongest antioxidative enzymes know. SOD is essential for the function of all human cells. In its absence the body degenerates. It is rarely found in any other edible substance.

Saponin glycodises, known for their emulsification, are found in Chaga. These dissolve certain types of fat. In healthy cells they make the membranes more fluid. However, in diseased cells, the emulsification actions serve a different function. They destroy the cell membranes of diseased tissues by breaking down or dissolving them.

Chaga contains more melanin than any other food or herb known. It contains pigments similar to those found in the human body making it a sound nutritional source. Many body systems require melanin to function properly. Having a source of melanin lightens the body’s processing load.

Turmeric and Diatomaceous Earth for Arthritis

Published on April 5, 2017, in Natural Remedies.

For best results, if available, use freshly grated turmeric. Use only Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth that has a high concentration (minimum 85%) of the mineral Silica.

The Asian spice, Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and supports systemic detoxification in those with arthritis.

Curcumin is a component of turmeric. Circulating free radicals are responsible for much of the inflammation and joint damage that occurs with arthritis, the antioxidants in curcumin helps neutralize free radicals.

Turmeric reduces the severity of joint pain. However, unlike Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth, Turmeric does not appear to help joint stiffness or improve joint function.

The Silica in Diatomaceous Earth (DE) helps relieve arthritis pain naturally by reducing inflammation in the joints. Silica also increases the production of collagen to lubricate joints and rejuvenate the elasticity of tissues to restore the natural flexibility in joints.

Add Turmeric and Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth to your daily juicing or smoothie routine, both blend especially well when combined with either carrot, mango, pineapple or papaya recipes.

For every (2) two juicing or smoothie servings, add 1/2 tablespoon of Diatomaceous Earth and 1/2 tablespoon of finely grated fresh turmeric or 1 teaspoon organic tumeric powder. You can use up to 1 tablespoon of the DE and grated turmeric if you would like a more pungent taste and added benefits.

Not all Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is the same

Only a few (less than 10) of the 600 Diatomaceous Earth mines in the United States and Canada are rated USDA Food Grade.

The Food Grade designation measures the percentage of crystalline silica present as well as the parts per million of heavy metals. Mines exceeding the maximum allowances can’t be rated Food Grade.

Even the Diatomaceous Earth from the different Food Grade mines is not identical.

Depending on where it is extracted and how it is processed, the end product can vary from dark, smelly and bad tasting to a product like Lumino’s that is whitish, odorless and neutral tasting.

Redish or brownish DE contains a heavier concentration of other minerals such as iron or a higher percentage of clay. The amount of silica present is also variable. Lumino Wellness DE contains 92% silica along with other trace minerals and moisture.

Some manufacturers list DE as an inert ingredient. The active ingredients are a variety of oils, herbs and fragrances that have an overwhelming smell, which may cause sensitivity issues.

All Lumino Wellness DE products are 100% Food Grade Fresh Water Diatomaceous Earth, with only one exception, Lumino’s EPA Registered Diatomaceous Earth for Pets.
