Chaga mushrooms are rich in a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, including:
- B-complex vitamins
- vitamin D
- amino acids
Slow the aging process:
Oxidative stress causes physical signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and gray hair. Exposure to sun, pollution, and other sources of damage create too many free radicals for the body to neutralize, which accelerates the aging process of the skin.
In theory, supplying the body with more antioxidants could slow the aging process, or even reverse visible signs of aging.
Although no research has conclusively linked chaga to anti-aging benefits, its effectiveness in fighting other forms of oxidative stress suggests that it could also fight aging.
Preventing and fighting cancer
Chaga is rich in antioxidants, which are chemicals that help prevent cell damage caused by free radicals or oxidants. When the body is unable to produce enough antioxidants to prevent this damage, oxidative stress occurs. Oxidative stress can cause cancer and a host of other health problems.
Lowering blood pressure
Research suggests that oxidative stress is a contributing factor for high blood pressure . People with high blood pressure are more prone to heart attacks, stroke, and other cardiovascular health issues.
Supporting the immune system
Cytokines are the immune system's chemical messengers. They are proteins that play a vital role in stimulating white blood cells, which are the immune system's first line of defense against a range of illnesses.
Chaga's role in regulating cytokine production may also help control inflammation. This points to a role for chaga in fighting autoimmune conditions and possibly some other disease.
Chaga mushrooms could prevent them from experiencing the side effects of other treatments, such as chemotherapy, radiation, and various medications prescribed for chronic illnesses.
Black Pepper: Black pepper ties the whole recipe together. Boosting the bodies ability to absorb Gingerol and Curcumin. Black pepper is an essential boost in this powerhouse brew.
Black pepper contains a compound, piperine, which inhibits the metabolic breakdown of turmeric compounds in the gut and the liver. This allows higher levels of turmeric compounds to remain in the body (i.e., it increases its bioavailability), which may increase the effects of turmeric and ginger.
Now that you have a better idea of how our Fire with Fire Tea works, here's what makes our tea different from commercial brands:
The Fresh Factor: Each ingredient is harvest FRESH.
Our ginger and turmeric are harvested, shredded and dried all with in ONE WEEK of shipping. They are so fresh that they retain their fragrance, and most importantly, their potency. These ingredients have not been shipped from overseas and left to sit in a warehouse for years before they arrive at your door.
Our cayenne peppers are grown organically and harvested and dried summer and autumn.
Our Reishi & Turkey Tail Mushrooms are grown and harvested fresh each month. When available you can order your Fresh (not dried) which is something that's not available to most of the world.
You won't find WHOLE, FRESH ingredients like this anywhere. That's what Starfish Honey is all about.
I started growing my own mushrooms when I was unable to find them whole and FRESH & WHOLE anywhere on the internet. I wanted to make my medicines FRESH. I want to see, touch, smell my mushrooms. I didn't want powders (which can LEGALLY contain fillers. I didn't want extracts, because WHO is extracting them? From where? and how long ago? The only way I could be 100% certain that I was using REAL Reishi mushrooms was to grow them myself. And so I did.
VEGAN OPTION: Use Raw Agave in place of Honey.
BUCKWHEAT HONEY is my favorite to add for it's flavor and rich consistency.
LEMON: Fresh Lemon will add flavor and turn your cup of tea the most gorgeous amber color you've ever seen.
OUR TEA BAGS ARE ALL NATURAL - NO CHLORINE - NO CHEMICAL PROCESSING
Directions: Pour boiling water over your tea bag, into your cup. Steep from 5-20 minutes. Unlike conventional tea, you cannot steep this brew too long. The longer the better.
OTHER HELPFUL TIPS:
START SLOW! I know you're eager to put the fire of chronic pain OUT. Start slow with this powerful medicine. Give your body a chance to react, a chance to get used to these new ingredients. The most noticeable effect on beginners (I'm speaking from my own experience here) is the change in bathroom business. It's normal, it's to be expected. Your experience in the bathroom after the first few days of taking this tea will let you know if you're using too much, too little or just the right amount. Don't worry... it's not that bad. I just want to make sure you know that it's totally normal.
Who slipped Viagra into my tea?
Men, Don't alarmed by the incredible increase of blood flow to certain areas of your body. This is a natural side effect of ginger. Don't fight it... ENJOY it. This effect doesn't fade away with time and use. It will always have that HUGE effect. That's just what fresh ginger does.
Women: Don't be jealous! It works for us too.... just a little differently.
Hey now.... I'm sharing this information because NO ONE ELSE does.

The botanical materia medics, wares and recipes of this website are NOT INTENDED TO REPLACE THE SERVICES OF PHYSICIANS.
By all means see a physician when a condition requires his services.
There is ample proof that that botanical medicines have been used for thousands of years, and it is reasonable to believe that they were also used by primitive man to survive diseases, and the rigors of aging.
None of these products have been evaluated by the FDA.
Many botanicals offered at Starfish Honey are recognized in the United States and foreign pharmacopias. Many of them have been discarded for stronger, more certain, synthetic drugs, or other reasons.
Modern science is now reevaluating many of the old time botanicals, and searching jungles and distant places to seek remedies from aboriginal races.
The future of human medicine may very well rest in the methods of our ancient ancestors.
