Our Chaga Mushroom Dual Extract processes responsibly wildcrafted sclerotia (fungal mycelium) of the Chaga (Inonotus obliquus
) mushroom through a lengthy hot water (distilled water) and alcohol (USDA Certified Organic pharmaceutical grade USP) extraction process. Our full spectrum dual extract is manufactured in our FDA registered, state and federally inspected manufacturing kitchen for our USDA Certified Organic farm in Woodbury, TN and bottled in premium Miron ultra-violet glass for superior preservation (shelf life of 1 year).
Chaga mushrooms have been used as folk medicine in Russia for centuries, more recently in treating the side effects of cancer treatments. Extracts of Chaga mycelium reduce oxidative stresses that lead to many diseases with one of the highest antioxident values of any herb and high concentrations of melanin, ergosterol (vitamin D2) and anti-aging enzymes SuperOxide Dismutase
(SOD). Studies of Chaga also show antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Compounds from both hot water and alcohol extractions, including polysaccharides and terpenes (betulinic acids, phytosterols), have anti-cancer properties and make Chaga a great candidate as an adjunct therapy. Chaga helps balance the immune system response to allergies as well as overactive auto-immune responses. There are no known side effects or contraindicators.*
Our Chaga Dual Extract comes in two size: 100 ml (3.38 oz. - ten servings $35)
and 200 ml (6.76 oz. 20 servings $60)
. Use in tea, coffee or infuse into baked goods, candy or other food products to add the health benefits of Chaga mushrooms to your diet. Chaga has a mild bitter flavor that dilutes with full servings of food and drink.Powder capsules vs. liquid extract:
The reason it is not recommended people eat Chaga mushrooms is because the body cannot digest the tough, chitinous tissue of the woody mushroom. Powder capsules that simply grind the mycelium of this mushroom into a capsule are certainly the easiest, most widely available and marketed, but this process does not make the beneficial compounds bio-available to the human body and creates inconsistent comparisons between powdered capsules. Dual extracts
that combine the hot water and alcohol extractions make the full spectrum of beneficial
compounds more bio-available than powdered capsules created as described here.
Liquid extracts are used in studies and more consistent because of a
standardized process of manufacturing. Liquid extracts are
also a preferred ancient method of extraction.OUR LABEL:
