What is Chaga Mushroom and what are the health benefits.
Inonotus obliquus is a medicinal mushroom that grows on a birch tree. For thousands of years it was widely used in China, Japan and Russia. Chaga is documented as early as 100 BC as “The King of Herbs”, “A Gift from God” “Diamond of the forest” and also referred to in Asian culture as the “Mushroom of Immortality”. It contains one of the highest antioxidant levels of any plant found on earth. It is off the charts on the ORAC scale. ORAC stand for Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity.
It also contains very high levels of SOD which stands for Superoxide Dismutase, an enzyme that greatly protects against serious oxide damage. Studies have shown that SOD acts as both an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory in the body, neutralizing the free radicals that can lead to wrinkles and precancerous cell changes. Researchers are currently studying the potential of superoxide dismutase as an anti-aging treatment.
Chaga Mushroom has potent immune supporting properties and is a rich source of beta glucans, and polysaccharides that are essential nutrients for the immune system.
These polysaccharides have strong anti-inflammatory and immune balancing properties, enhancing the body’s ability to produce natural killer (NK) cells to battle infections or cells that are out of control. (contains 215 phytonutrients including 29 polysaccharide or beta glucan derivatives)
“Beta glucans are used for high cholesterol, diabetes, cancer, and HIV/AIDS. Beta glucans are also used to boost the immune system in people whose body defences have been weakened by conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, or physical and emotional stress; or by treatments such as radiation or chemotherapy.” Betulinic Acid is known to kill cancer cells and to inhibit tumours.
“The anti-cancer properties of betulin or betulinic acid, a chemical isolated from birch trees is now being studied for use as a chemotherapeutic agent. Inonotus obliquus contains large amounts of betulinic acid in a form that can be ingested orally, and it also contains the full spectrum of immune-stimulating phytochemicals found in other medicinal mushrooms such as maitake mushroom and shiitake mushroom.”

Raw chaga vs extract chaga is like comparing raw cacao vs instant chocolate…
Chaga has been a remedy in ancient Siberia for centuries, the locals would take it off the birch tree and consume it as tea. It is believed that those who consumed chaga on a regular basis developed stronger immune systems and longevity. These claims and research prompted (among others) Russian oncologist to write the book the cancer ward.
Finding quality chaga is very hard and yet costly for we must identify, climb trees and go to very remote areas in order to bring you fresh, delicious and nutrient filled chaga.
This process makes it very difficult for certain companies to provide chaga to the masses and choose to provide alternative cost effective processed methods under claims that it makes nutrients more available or water soluble, this method simply jeopardizes many vitamins ,minerals ands it’s alkalinity from over processing.
At Chi Chaga we don’t believe in the extract processed products and we remain committed to deliver only the finest, freshest, quality raw chaga available.
The same way the Siberians harvested and consumed for centuries.

How to Prepare Chaga Mushroom to Drink as a Tea
- Boil desired cups of water in a teapot or kettle.
- Add one teaspoon per cup of water using a tea infuser, tea ball or bag.
- Place infuser, tea ball or bag into the boiling water and let steep for 2 to 3 minutes.
Boil for 2 minutes a small handful in 4 cups of water. You can save the chunks in the refrigerator and boil up to 3 times.
We encourage this practice since wild chaga is rare and it contains a vast amount of nutrients that cab be extracted on multiple boilings.
