Benefits

Antioxidants 

In response to stress and pollutants, our bodies produce what are called “free radicals”, unstable molecules which can damage cells and DNA in a process called “oxidation”. Chaga is very rich in antioxidants that protect your cells from the oxidative stress caused by free radicals.

Immunomodulator 

Fungal polysaccharides, found in Chaga, have immunomodulating properties: they support balanced immune functioning. Not only do they support a sluggish immune system to ward off illness, they can also work to suppress the hyperactive immune functioning associated with inflammation and allergies.

Digestive Health  

Research suggests that Chaga stimulates bile flow, which is important in the body’s processes for digesting fat. It has also been known to reduce inflammation in the digestive tract.

FAQs

What is Chaga?

Although it’s typically referred to as a mushroom, Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is actually a sclerotia—a hardened mass of fungal mycelium. As a parasitic fungus, Chaga primarily grows on birch trees in cold climates where it appears as a black, charcoal-like mass with a woody, orange interior.

Why wild-harvested Chaga?

Betulinic acid is responsible for much of Chaga’s antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. This compound is found in the bark of birch trees. Unlike mycelium cultivated Chaga, wild-harvested Chaga absorbs betulinic acid from the birch trunks it grows on. Learn more about the difference between wild-harvested and mycelium cultivated Chaga here.

What is a tincture?

A tincture is a concentrated liquid extract that's made by soaking mushrooms in a solvent—typically alcohol and/or hot water. This process unlocks the active ingredients in the mushrooms, leaving you with a potent liquid that can be dosed with a pipette. Tinctures offer a concentrated, immediate way to incorporate functional fungi like Chaga into your routine.

What does a Chaga tincture taste like?

Chaga has a mild, earthy taste. Our alcohol-based tincture has a more potent flavor, where our glycerin-based (alcohol-free) tincture has a sweet taste (sugar-free).

How are Forage tinctures extracted?

We use industry-leading Ultrasonic Extraction technology to produce high potency extracts that feature all of the fungi’s health-promoting polysaccharides, triterpenes and vitamins. This method is the most efficient at breaking down mushroom cell walls to release 90-95% of active compounds contained in them, delivering a potent and bioavailable liquid extract.

Can I use more than one mushroom tincture at a time?

Yes! But we do recommend starting with one mushroom tincture at the recommended daily dosage for up to two weeks to see how your body responds before adding another tincture to your routine.
