What is Chaga Mushroom?

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 Chga 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.

Chaga mushrooms contain several beneficial bioactive constituents. Chaga mushroom has one of the highest contents of antioxidants of any other herbs or fungi in the world.

Antioxidants aid in preventing cell damage, which lowers the risk of diseases such as cancer and aging. Chaga mushrooms also contain considerable amounts of betulin and betulinic acid, which several studies show to have anti-cancer effects. Betulin is also useful for helping to balance and maintain the metabolic system in the body. Aside from these powerful constituents, chaga mushroom also contains B vitamins, minerals like copper, calcium, and zinc, as well as essential enzymes. These constituents are essential for daily life, and deprivation of these essential nutrients will result in reduced immunity, and increased risk of diseases. Also, regular consumption of Chaga mushrooms has shown to help to boost the immune system. This is due to the beta-glucans that are present in chaga mushrooms stimulating the production of antibodies and helping to improve the immune system overall. By supporting the function of your immune system, Chaga can help keep unwanted pathogens out of your body, which in turn can help to protect you against many illnesses. 


Wild-harvested Canadian Chaga Mushrooms

Chaga is a mushroom with powerful antioxidants and other interesting phytochemicals including betulin, betulinic acid, phytosterols, polysaccharides and beta-glucans. The polysaccharides in chaga mushroom are well-known for modulating immune system- keeping your immune system well-functioning. Chaga derives these compounds from the birch trees to protect itself from harsh environment. Therefore the benefit of artificially grown chaga may be far lower than the wild grown ones. 

Nutridom Chaga grows naturally on living birch trees in cold Northern Canada. It is sustainably harvested from remote, pristine forest by professionals who have many years of experience harvesting chaga mushroom. Chaga mushrooms that grow in colder regions are known to more nutritious because chaga mushroom tends to store valuable nutrients in themselves in colder habitats.
