Have you been wondering how to rev up your immunity for this fall and winter? I am going to share my favorite drink recipe that will not only build on the immunity you have but provide resilience and adaptability through the rest of the year. Here’s the breakdown of ingredients:
Wild harvested Chaga Mushroom Tea 1 1/2 cups
Grass Fed colostrum 1 Tbsp
Organic maple syrup 1 tsp (to taste)
Organic cream 2 Tbsp
Blend all ingredients thoroughly until mixed, I always make my chaga tea ahead of time and store it in the fridge. To make chaga tea bring 3 liters of water to a rapid boil with approximately 4 Tbsp of chaga powder let boil for about 2 1/2 hours. This ensures the breakdown of the chitin in the chaga mushroom and extracts the medicinal compounds. Chaga can be consumed on its own but if paired with a powerful immune system regulator such as colostrum it makes potent immuno stack of nutrients. For more health benefits on chaga and colostrum see the blog post Top 5 Supplements for Immune System Modulation.
This drink is one that I consume daily, especially as the sun and vitamin D starts to fade away for the winter, it will ensure that you are getting vital immune system function all fall and winter. It’s fantastic to drink at the end of a day and ease into a full night of sleep, because chaga is known for its ability to calm the nervous system. With a solid night’s sleep and this drink by your side your immune system will be able to whether anything that is thrown at you this coming fall and winter.
