Organic Chaga 10:1 Extract Description:
Chaga mushroom (scientific name: Inonotus obliquus, if you’re into that kind of knowledge) has been grown in cold climates in the Northern hemisphere for centuries. Most chaga is grown on the sides of birch trees in Russia, Siberia, Scandinavia, Canada, or the northernmost parts of the United States (chaga loves the cold). Mógū uses only wild Chaga from Russia!
Chaga doesn’t look like a typical mushroom. It grows off the side of the birch tree, and looks similar to a big piece of charcoal. It is not eaten as a food, but strictly for its medicinal purposes and needs to be extracted before ingestion. All medicinal mushrooms require extraction with hot water and/or alcohol (ideally, both) to get all the beneficial compounds out. Mógū does both extraction procedures separately and blends the finished products together to prevent dilution.
What do researchers claim about Chaga?
The main areas in which chaga mushroom has been studied for its health benefits are with cancer prevention and treatment, immune system function, and antimicrobial/antiviral activity.
This fungi is considered to have the highest antioxidant levels of anything found in nature due to its rich source in beta-glucans, betulinic acid, melanin, and superoxide dismutase.
One of chaga’s main claims to fame is its benefits for supporting the immune system. Chaga has been shown to modulate the immune system by promoting the formation of helpful cytokines. Cytokines can either be pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory, and we want more of the anti-inflammatory. By promoting the formation of beneficial cytokines — specialized proteins that regulate the immune system — chaga stimulates white blood cells, which are essential for fighting off harmful bacteria or viruses.
