What is Chaga?
Chaga, or Inonotus obliquus as it's scientifically known, is an extraordinary superfood hailing from the coldest regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Notably found on birch trees, this distinctive entity has a history as fascinating as its touted benefits.
Chaga has a rich history, first discovered by indigenous cultures in Siberia, They revered it as the "Gift from God" and utilized its power to endure harsh winters. Over time, this miraculous find made its way to different cultures across Northern Europe, Asia, and North America, each utilizing it in their traditional medicine for its purported health-enhancing properties. Whether it was used in a warming brew by the Siberians to fend off the cold or by the Japanese as a balance-restoring elixir, Chaga has been woven into the fabric of holistic health practices worldwide. Native nations such as the Cree have used chaga for centuries as a form of Moxibustion treatment to stimulate the body's energy meridians to unlock its spiritual healing properties.
Also known by other names like 'King of Herbs', 'Cinder Conk' and 'Black Gold', owing to its extraordinary nutrient profile and the distinct charcoal-black exterior that encases its golden interior. This rich blend of folklore and recognition stands testament to Chaga's timeless appeal.
While chaga is commonly referred to as a mushroom, it's technically not one. Instead, it's a parasitic fungus that grows on the bark of birch trees. Unlike typical mushrooms that have a fruiting body and gills, chaga forms a distinct, woody mass called a sclerotium. This makes chaga a unique and intriguing natural substance that stands out from other mushrooms.
What does research say so far?
Immune System Support
One of the most well-known benefits of chaga is its ability to boost the immune system. Research shows that chaga contains beta-glucans, which help modulate the immune system by enhancing the immune response when needed and suppressing it when overactive (Mao, Van de Water, Keen & Gershwin, 2015). This adaptogenic property makes chaga an excellent choice for maintaining a healthy immune system.
Chaga has demonstrated genoprotective effects, meaning it has the ability to protect DNA from damage. This is important because DNA damage can lead to mutations, which can contribute to the development of various diseases(5).
Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Effects
Chaga is known for its high antioxidant content, which helps protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. A study published in the International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms found that chaga demonstrated strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, protecting cells from damage and reducing inflammation (Giridharan, Thandavarayan, Sato, Ko & Konishi, 2011). This suggests that chaga may help prevent chronic diseases and support overall health.
Blood Sugar Regulation
Chaga may help regulate blood sugar levels, making it a potential natural remedy for managing diabetes. A study published in the journal Phytotherapy Research found that chaga extract could lower blood sugar levels in diabetic mice (Sun, Zhao, You, & Sun, 2008). Although more research is needed to confirm these effects in humans, these findings support the traditional use of chaga for blood sugar control.
Chaga may also support liver health by protecting it from damage. A study published in the journal PLOS ONE found that chaga could protect the liver from damage caused by the chemotherapy drug cyclophosphamide (Zhong, Xin, Gu & Gao, 2013). The researchers believe that the antioxidative properties of chaga are responsible for its liver-protective effects.
As always, consult with your healthcare practitioner before adding chaga or any new supplement to your regimen.
What is the Anecdotal Experience?
Chaga mushrooms have been used for centuries as a natural remedy to boost immunity, protect DNA from damage, regulate blood sugar levels, support liver health, and provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. But the benefits of Chaga don't stop there. Taking Chaga can also make you feel healthy, strong, peaceful, energetic and invigorated. Many people report improved energy levels after taking Chaga regularly.
It's important to note that everyone's experience with taking Chaga may be different depending on their current health status, diet, sleep cycles and other variables. However, most people who take Chaga tend to experience a boost in their immunity, energy levels and overall sense of well-being.
So how does it work? Chaga contains a unique blend of antioxidants that help reduce inflammation in the body while providing essential nutrients such as Vitamin B2 (riboflavin), Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol), calcium, potassium and zinc. It is an excellent alternative to caffeine or energy drinks because it provides sustained energy without the crash or jitters associated with stimulants.
By taking Chaga regularly you can enjoy its many benefits: improved immunity, increased energy levels and an overall sense of well-being
How is our extract different?
Why strive for change? As a mushroom farmer for a number of years, and having a previous background in health, fitness and supplements, I wanted to fully incorporate the greatness mushrooms have to offer. I began by researching the best practices, which initially led to creating a Lion's Mane dual-extract, a market standard. But from watching the extraction process and mixing the water and alcohol, I noticed something was off and started to ask a lot of questions. The rich color from the separate extractions vanished when mixed. This was due to the alcohol knocking polysaccharides out of solution. I was also receiving feedback from my customers at my farmers markets reporting the Lion's Mane Tincture was hard to take regularly due to the harsh flavor from the alcohol.
From there I sought for how to extract fat-soluble or non-polar compounds without solvents or alcohol, Ultra-sound Assisted Extraction was the solution. This has led to a noticeable significant development in effectiveness of not only the process of extraction, but the delivery of compounds into circulation. This in turn lead to the adoption of Liposomal Delivery, a modern method of micro encapsulation, that allows the compounds to pass through digestion successfully and be absorbed at a higher rate. Common Powders, Pills and non-encapsulated Functional Mushroom supplements can have a 15% absorption rate, Liposomal Delivery can increase this by orders of magnitude.
In an effort to create a more "full-spectrum" extract, meaning it contains more of what you would find in the whole mushroom, Apple Cider Vinegar is added in our process. This allows vitamins and minerals to be included in the final product, water and alcohol do not pull these nutrients effectively.
By recognizing something was missing I was able to recover maintaining the rich color from a proper extraction process and make my customers happy by providing an extract that tastes amazing!
