About Chaga Mushrooms
Chaga mushrooms (Latin name: Inonotus obliquus) prefer to grow on birch trees in cold climates. Due to its preference for higher latitudes, it has a deep history of traditional use in colder northern climates. Modern research suggests that this mushroom may offer antioxidant support while promoting a healthy immune system and its function.
Premade & Custom Chaga Formulations
Chaga is a popular functional mushroom, and our Chaga supplements are a terrific way to connect your customers to its potential benefits.* We have you covered if you are interested in our premade premium formulas or wish to create your personalized Chaga supplements. Feel free to check out our custom formulator and see what endless healthy ingredients we offer! We only use USDA-Certified Organic mushrooms and premium ingredients. Our mushrooms are steam-processed and then triple-extracted for maximum bioavailability and potency.
Our Chaga mushroom glycerites are triple extracted before we remove the alcohol and add vegetable glycerin. First we ferment the mushrooms to make the polysaccharides, triterpenoids, and alkaloids more bioavailable. Next, we do a hot water extraction, as polysaccharides are water soluble. And third, we do an extraction of 90 days in alcohol, for the triterpenoids, which are alcohol soluble. It takes us around 100 days to make a tincture, then we remove the alcohol to create a glycerite!
Our farm partners have been growing and extracting mushrooms for 40+ years. We think that our Chaga bulk mushroom powders are the best possible products! We take steps to ensure purity and a high level of active constituents with optimal bioavailability. In raw mushrooms, the main active constituents, the 1,3-Beta Glucans, are tightly bound to the cell walls and have a low degree of bioavailability. To target this issue and boost bioavailability of the constituents, all mushrooms undergo a steam activation process that breaks down the cell walls and frees the 1,3-Beta Glucans from the chitin. We cultivate both the mycelium and fruiting bodies of the mushrooms in our products. All our mushroom powders start as organically grown mushrooms right here in the United States!
