  • Promotes strong immune system
  • Potent antioxidants
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Anti-Cancer properties

Chaga mushrooms, also known as “black gold” due to its cork-like orange tissue, are known for their antioxidant content. In fact, they have one of the highest if not THE highest antioxidant content of any other food. Chaga mushrooms have an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) value of 146,700.

Wild Chaga grows naturally in the vast forests of Russia, northern China and northern climatic zones in general where birch make up the primary tree species. Even though Chaga is commonly referred to as a mushroom, it is actually a sterile conk, a hardened mass of wood and mycelium with an amorphous shape and dark pigmented outer layer. It has been estimated that the chaga conk is approximately 10% mycelium. A tree pathogen known as a canker, Chaga slowly causes birch trees to decay and die. For hundreds of years Chaga has been wildcrafted and utilized by the people of northern Europe and Russia.

US lab-grown Chaga is not sclerotia but mycelium grown on grain. Analysis has shown that US Chaga mycelium on grain has low levels of beta-glucan and very high levels of starch. We only use 100% organic sclerotia which are rigorously tested and guaranteed for active compounds. 

Beta (1-3),(1-6)-glucans Greater than 10%
Triterpenoids present
Starch Less than 3%

Chaga Uses

Birch trees contain precursor compounds such as the triterpenoid betulin. Chaga draws betulin and other precursors directly from the birch tree and turns them into inotodiol, trametenolic acid and betulinic acid. Chaga needs the tree-bound precursors to synthesize the triterpenoids for which it is famous. Chaga is traditionally used for stomach illnesses and immunity issues.

Chaga is powerful, because it contains the nutrients—the force of actual trees. Because of their special, biologically potent substances, trees live long, far longer than herbs. Some trees live as long as 10,000 years or more. Thus, they are the most powerful living beings in the world. Concentrating this power, chaga contains numerous B vitamins, flavonoids, phenols, minerals, and enzymes. It is also one of the world’s densest sources of pantothenic acid, and this vitamin is needed by the adrenal glands as well as digestive organs. It also contains riboflavin and niacin in significant amounts.

Chaga contains wild-source minerals and is particularly high in copper, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc, and iron. Yet, its most potent ingredient is a special substance known as superoxide dismutase (SOD). This is an enzyme with great potency. Its function is to halt oxidation, especially the toxicity of a free radical known as singlet oxygen. This is the type of oxygen which is responsible for oxidizing and damaging the tissues, which results in aging.

    Best chaga extract I've had

    Posted by la0508 on 1st Jul 2019

    This is a dual extract of chaga, which means it contains the alcohol soluble components like betulinic acid, a strong fighter of certain cancers--colon and melanoma for example. Water extracts taste bitter, but good. Dual extracts taste like dirt, unfortunately. Not a good addition to coffee. BUT,,,TAKE IT AND A FEW HOURS LATER YOU WILL FIND YOU HAVE A LOT MORE STAMINA. I found that I was able to do things without experiencing the exhaustion afterwards that I was formerly feeling. This extract is good, and worth buying. I'm here for my second purchase.
