Chaga is sometimes called "The King of Medicinal Mushrooms" in reference to its incredible polysaccharide content. Our potent Chaga extract ranges from no less than 30% polysaccharide to 35% depending on the batch. Polysaccharides are intelligent long-chain sugar molecules, which not only give mushrooms their bitter taste, but also are famous for their many health benefits.
Wild Siberian Chaga Extract can be described as calming and mellow, while energizing and clarifying to the mind. Chaga, amongst the medicinal mushrooms represents the perfect bridge between Reishi and Cordyceps as it is both calming like Reishi, while having an immediate energy boosting effect that is more typical of Cordyceps.
Chaga's taste can be described as rich and woody, with chocolate and vanilla like tones making it an ideal addition to coffee, milk drinks, or teas. Added to a morning coffee, Chaga may extend the energetic life of the beverage, take the edge off the caffeine and smooth out the crash. With an array of phyto-nutrients, Chaga extract supplies the brain with efficient fuel while aiding the nervous system in reducing stress.
In Chinese medicine Chaga is classified as a qi tonic, which means it invigorates and replenishes the qi. It is a particularly useful ally in supplementing the "wei qi" or "surface defense qi," and in defending the immune system from external pathogenic influences such as environmental toxins and drastic weather fluctuations.
The wei qi regulates the body's ability to appropriately open and close the pores in order to close itself off from pathogens, while still being able to vent heat. The difference between two individuals exposed to the same pathogenic influence and one becoming sick is the integrity of each individual's wei qi.
Qi can be depleted through excessive work, stress, or lack of sleep. Over a period of time this eventually leads to what the ancient Chinese refer to as "blood deficiency". By the time illness progresses to this stage the "jing" or "primordial essence energy" of the kidneys is drawn from and the individual begins to show signs of extreme depletion. This avoidable cascade of physical degeneration starts with the qi and can be prevented through consumption of powerful qi tonics such as Chaga and Reishi.
Because our Qi fluctuates so drastically depending on the demands of our weekly schedule, it can be helpful to supplement with an herb like Chaga, which is able to replenish this vital life substance on a daily or weekly basis. Over time, enjoying potent qi tonics acts as both an insurance policy on health and also ensures we are truly engaging in life, and not just surviving.
