Chaga is a mushroom that grows in the forests of Northern Siberia and Northern Canada. Chaga is highly prized in Russian herbalism with the modern clinical research validating many of the health benefits described in the Russian sources.
Chaga is unique among medicinal mushrooms and may be one of the most important anti-aging supplements yet discovered*. Like all medicinal mushrooms Chaga contains the non-linear, complex polysaccharides that give the Chaga extracts potent immune supporting properties.* However, Chaga also has an extremely high ORAC value (antioxidant properties), similar to that of blueberry extracts.*
Chaga also has melanin compounds that nourish the skin and hair. The betulin and betulinic acid compounds, similar to the triterpenes found in Reishi, also have immune supporting properties.*
Chaga is a mushroom that must be wild crafted as only those mushrooms harvested from living birch trees will have the full compliment of active compounds Chaga is famous for. Our Chaga extract is the only Chaga supplement available in North America that contains guaranteed levels of all the active compounds described in the scientific research, including the non-linear polysaccharides, betulin and betulinic acids.
