Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus) is a unique fungus which grows on several types of trees, mostly Birch species, in Northern latitudes of Europe, Asia, and North America.
*In the regions where it is found, Chaga has been used for hundreds of years as a natural medicine. Only in recent years has it been studied extensively for its unique medicinal properties. Research has found that Chaga has one of highest antioxidant levels of any food.
*Chaga is a powerful antiviral because it helps activate lymphocytes (white blood cells) and other immune cells like Natural Killer (NK) cells. NK cells sound like science fiction, but they're real and can literally destroy viruses while working with the rest of the immune system to contain infections.
*Chaga actually extracts nutrients from its host tree and converts them into a form which can be easily digested by humans. Beta-glucans may help maintain a strong immune system. Melanin may promote healthy skin, hair and eyes. Betulinic acid is an anti-inflammatory, anti viral, anti bacterial. Increased Superoxide Dismutase may promote the clearance of free radicals and protect from cellular damage.
Our Chaga extract is the most potent available anywhere. Freshly ground Chaga is sent directly from our foragers in North-Central Alaska to a GMP certified facility in Oregon to be naturally processed and tinctured. Our foragers are native to the areas in which the Chaga is harvested, and they work carefully to protect the Birch trees and mitigate any environmental impact of harvesting.
*The ground Chaga undergoes a dual extraction process. For the first extraction, the grounds are soaked in organic cane alcohol for 30 days. For the second extraction, fresh grounds are simmered in hot water for 24 hours. The two resulting solutions are combined to create our Chaga Tincture. This process optimizes the bioavailability of all active compounds in the Chaga and creates a powerful elixir rich in beta-glucans, betulinic acid, and other health-promoting compounds.
Finally, we put our Chaga Tincture in the best bottle money could buy. It's made from ultra dark, thick Miron glass and it lets in so little light that it appears black. This keeps the Chaga Tincture incredibly fresh and stable for years.
*Chaga Tincture can be taken daily to stimulate immune function, act as adaptogenic support, and enhance overall well-being. It can be taken alone sublingually (under the tongue), or added to hot water, tea, coffee, or other beverages.
