Chaga mushroom is a non-toxic mushroom with extremely high amount of antioxidants. This mushroom differs from other mushrooms as it grows by extracting nutrient from living trees instead of the dead ones. Chaga mushrooms primarily grow on birch trees and are only found in the coldest locations of the northern hemisphere. This unique factor makes Chaga mushrooms exclusive to Russia, Eastern Europe, Canada, Korea, and some parts in the United States. In addition to this exclusivity, Chaga mushrooms take at least 5 years to mature, and are very rare. Also, Chaga mushrooms cannot be cultivated. Several attempts have been made to cultivate Chaga mushrooms, but every attempt resulted in significantly reduced and different bioactive constituents. The appearance of Chaga mushrooms is similar to burnt wood on the outside, and orange inside. The mushroom is harvested on selected birch trees only once in 20 years. In addition, out of a hundred trees harvested, only 2 % to 3 % of the harvested Chaga are certified as “superior grade”. Many commercial foragers are highly motivated to harvest Chaga mushrooms because of its high value.
Higher Melanin Concentration
Canadian Chaga mushrooms have higher concentrations of melanin, which makes it to have more antioxidant activity and anti-cancer effect compared to other Chaga mushrooms harvested from other regions. This is because Canadian Chaga mushrooms receive relatively higher amount of ultraviolet light compared to Chaga mushrooms found in other regions. Canadian Chaga mushrooms, as a result, produces more melanin and contains higher concentration of Vitamin D.
From Unpolluted Northern Canada
Chaga mushrooms are known to have higher quality nutrition when they are grown in colder regions because Chaga mushrooms tend to store valuable nutrients in themselves in colder habitats. Despite the fact, most commercially marketed Chaga mushrooms tend to be harvested from the warm climate regions because Chaga grows faster and is cheaper. Northern Canadian Chaga Mushrooms are slowly grown in extremely cold weather where there is no environmental contamination. This is why Canadian Chaga Mushrooms have better quality than the ones harvested from other regions.
BOOSTS IMMUNE SYSTEM AGAINST DISEASES AND INFECTIONS
The immune system classifies Chaga as an adaptogenic Biological Response Modifier (BRM); not only it stimulates the body’s immune function when necessary, but can also slow it down when it’s overactive. The beta-glucans is widely known to be responsible for the adaptogenic action, but many researchers believe it is actually the synergy between several, if not all constituents that are responsible for this. Because of this property, Chaga can be used to neutralize the side effects of pharmaceuticals, to compensate the age-related declination of our immune function, and, in general, to help us deal with abrupt stresses that negatively impact our daily functions.
Oxidation is a chemical process that happens in our body everyday. Individual cells use oxidation to harmonize and maintain normal body function. Although necessary, at the same time, oxidation yields free radicals, which cause damage or death to cells. Free radicals can affect any cell in our body. It can be your brain cell, or your liver cell, and this damage is often permanent. It is important that our cells protect themselves from this damage, and keep working in harmony. Antioxidants are molecules that fight oxidation. Simply put, antioxidants minimize and mitigate the oxidizing effect of free radicals. Chaga Mushroom has extremely high concentration of antioxidant superoxide dismutase, which could reduce oxidation damage in nearly every single cell in our body.
