What is chaga

Chaga Mushroom (Inonotus Obliquus) is a non-toxic fungus in the Hymenochaetaceae family and has numerous medicinal qualities. Chaga Mushrooms are the parasitic on birch and other trees. The sterile conk is irregularly formed and has the appearance of burnt charcoal. It is not the fruiting body of the fungus, but a mass of mycelium, mostly black due to the presence of massive amounts of melanin. Chaga is a mushroom that contains medicinal properties that can help strengthen and heal the body naturally.

The name "chaga" (pronounced "tsjaa-ga') comes from the Russian word of the mushroom (anglicized from czaga), which in turn is purportedly derived from the word for the fungus in Komi-Permyak, the language of the indigenous peoples in the Kama River Basin, west of the Ural Mountains. It is also known as the clinker polypore, cinder conk, black mass and birch canker polypore.

Clinically proven to be one of nature's oldest, safest and most powerful medicinal herbs.

What is the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC)?

The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale designed by the USDA, measures the amount of free oxygen radicals that a food, or supplement can absorb in your body. Chaga has the highest ORAC score for natural foods or supplements as tested by the USDA and Tufts University in Boston, MA.

Oxidative stress caused by free radicals, has been demonstrated to accelerate the aging process in both cells and blood vessels. Oxidative stress also increases the risk of certain types of cancers, coronary heart disease and many other health problems.

Chaga Mushroom has the highest ORAC score for natural foods or supplements as tested by the USDA and Tufts University.
