The Power of Chaga Mushroom

Found in the deep remote northern forests of the world is a truly  rare  and  powerful  medicine—provided  by  nature itself—one that has been long revered for centuries for its potent   and  unmatched  nutritional  powers—the  chaga mushroom.

Grown on wild birch trees, the chaga mushroom is a rich source of nutrients and antioxidants making it truly one of the  most potent yet purely natural nutritional complexes known. Wild chaga mushroom is a dense source of a wide range of nutrients, including B vitamins, minerals, sterols, and enzymes. In particular, chaga is the world’s top source of the  antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD), giving  it  more  antioxidant  capability  than  acai  berry, elderberry,  blackberry,  or  cranberry.  Such  potency  gives chaga an ORAC value of 42, 860 units per three ounces. Anything above  500 is considered exceedingly powerful. To add, chaga is also an excellent source of beta-glucans and natural, wild  sterols such as betulin, betulinic acid, lanosterol and inotodiol. Thus, the vitality and power of wild  trees  are  literally  condensed  into  this  mushroom. Impressively, this is truly nature at its best.

The use of chaga dates as early as 100 BC in the Shen Nong Ben  Cao  Jing—the  foundation  of  traditional  Chinese medicine. Asian cultures have deemed chaga as the “King of all Herbs” and “A Gift from God.” Very few Westerners were familiar with chaga before the great Russian novelist Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn introduced it in one of his novels The Cancer  Ward. He wrote, “He could not imagine any greater joy than to go away into the woods for months on end, to break off  this chaga, crumble it, boil it up on a campfire, drink it and get well, like an animal.” Afterwards, chaga was validated by  Moscow’s Medical Academy of Science in 1955 and used extensively by the public.

Chaga is also known for its powers of prevention as well as longevity. People who consume it regularly live a long and vigorous  life,  versus  those  who  don’t.  For  instance,  the

Siberians,  another  culture  who  used  this  mushroom  for centuries, live up to 100 years, calling it the “Mushroom of Immortality.” In contrast the Inuit who don’t consume it live  an  average  of  only  50  years.  In  addition  chaga’s strength-producing   properties   have   been   utilized   by professional athletes. Chaga was one of the state secrets in the former Soviet Union, accounting for the vast strength of Russian athletes. The world record holder in the squat, Fred Hatfield,  set his record squat of over 1,000 pounds while using  this  complex. Yet,  once  he  broke  the  record  the Russians became upset and quit supplying him.

Chaga can now be experienced and enjoyed in a variety of ways. Do not accept cheap synthetic imitations produced from vat-grown chaga.
