Chaga Mushroom

Wild Harvested Chaga Mushroom

Classified as a Medicinal Mushroom and clinically proven to be one of nature’s oldest, 

safest and most powerful medicinal herbs.

Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus), also known as The King of Herbs, is a wild mushroom, that grows on birch trees in extremely cold regions of northern latitudes including Baltic regions, Scandinavia, Siberia, Alaska, and northern Canada, where temperatures fall below - 30 F for the 2-3 months per year required to sustain maximum growth and potency. Chaga Mushroom is “wild harvested” and cannot be commercially cultivated.

Chaga Mushroom grows naturally on birch trees. The Chaga Mushroom conk grows in co-operation with the tree over a 5 to 7 year period, thriving in the harsh winter environments, absorbing life-sustaining nutrients from the birch tree. Chaga Mushroom is classified as neither a plant nor animal. The DNA structure is thirty (30%) per cent more human than plant. Chaga Mushroom is classified scientifically as a Basidiomycetes mushroom and is far superior to the rest of 150 species of Basidiomycetes, that have been classified as medicinal mushrooms.

Western Medicine is now beginning to study, evaluate, and test Chaga Mushroom for the active compounds underlying its historically understood homeopathic benefits. Whole supplements like Chaga Mushroom, offer a complex balance of active compounds, delivery mineral structures, and co-agents, more effective to sustaining a healthy immune balance than synthesized isolated compounds.

  

How long does the body take to assimilate the NANO NUTRIENTS of the Chaga Mushroom and what about NANO NUTRIENTS? 

It happens immediately. The longer a nutrient remains on a rooted plant system, the smaller the molecules become. The Siberian Chaga Mushroom lives in unison with the white birch tree and remains bioactive as long as the white birch tree is alive. During this 25 year period of bioactivity and growth, the nutrients are broken down smaller and smaller every day into NANO NUTRIENTS. This LOW MOLECULAR WEIGHT is not possible for fruit, vegetables or other mushrooms that are commercially harvested in 3-6 months. The natural occurring NANO NUTRIENTS of Siberian Chaga Mushroom allows for 100% permeability into human cell membranes. These complex, ionized, supra-molecular nutrients are quickly dissolved back into their basic chemical components, due to the fact that enzymes are not required to break them down. Nature has already done the work over 25 years to produce a NANO size molecule that requires no catalyst for immediate use by the body.

 

How does Chaga Mushroom limit hunger to lose weight? 

The hunger signal, transmitted by the brain, is a reaction to a nutritional imbalance of the blood. Due to the fast transit of nutrients into the blood stream, the brains hunger signal will be turned off, allowing appetite suppression and weight loss to occur naturally. Chaga Mushroom is water soluble and when consumed at the onset of hunger, will reach the blood stream in 15-30 minutes. The brains hunger response will be turned off and the desire to eat will be eliminated. A few hours later, when the brain determines the blood is once again nutritionally imbalanced, avoid snacking and take Chaga Mushroom to provide organic nutrition to balance the blood.

 

ANTIOXIDANTS

What is the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC)?

The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale designed by the USDA, measures the amount of free oxygen radicals that a food, or supplement can absorb in your body. Chaga has the highest ORAC score for natural foods or supplements as tested by the USDA and Tufts University in Boston, MA.

Oxidative stress caused by free radicals, has been demonstrated to accelerate the ageing process in both cells and blood vessels. Oxidative stress also increases the risk of certain types of cancers, coronary heart disease and many other health problems.

Chaga Mushroom has the highest ORAC score for natural foods or supplements as tested by the USDA and Tufts University.

What is the Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) Enzyme?

SOD is The Most Powerful Cellular Antioxidant

Superoxide Dismutase (known as SOD) is an enzyme associated with copper, zinc, manganese and iron by body cells, and breaks down the super oxide free radicals. Manganese and zinc, in particular, stimulate production of SOD.

SOD is an antioxidant produced by the human body that absorbs free radicals and neutralizes them before they can damage tissue cells.

SOD is found in both the dermis and the epidermis, and is key to the production of healthy fibroblasts (skin-building cells).

SOD is the most powerful enzyme in the body and acts as a cellular antioxidant.

SOD plays an extremely important role in the protection of all aerobic life-systems against oxygen toxicity (and the free radicals derived from oxygen).

SOD is the most dangerous free radical produced in the body because it requires three electrons to rebalance itself. Most free radicals seek only one electron. SOD exerts this benefit in both the mitochondria and the cytoplasm of the cell.

SOD provides enzymatic detoxification of ageing hydrogen peroxides produced by skin's metabolism.

SOD is the body’s primary defence system for tissues and organs against free radicals.

SOD is critical to cellular health, protecting the cells from excessive oxygen radicals, free radicals and other harmful agents that cause premature ageing or eventual cell death. 

SOD levels decline with age, while free radical production increases. 

SOD is not contained in many foods, if contained then SOD’s level is very low. The result is that SOD enzyme deficiency is common. Our bodies cannot make enough SOD to combat our toxic environment. Our body and cells being continually, every day polluted by pesticides, food chemicals, hormones, pollution, chlorinated water, radiation, plastics, antibiotics, fluoride, heavy metals, some medications and more create a need for SOD.

 

Due to increased pollution, toxins and pesticides in our environment, the need for a powerful Cellular Antioxidant is now greater than ever.

Free radical damage caused by this daily environment of toxins has led to an increase in cancer and other degenerative diseases in younger and younger people over the last few decades.

Proper daily SOD supplementation will protect your immune system and greatly lower your chances of diseases and ultimately slowing the aging process.

 

Why is it important to have enough SOD every day?

SOD as Cellular Antioxidants are a critical part of any anti-aging health plan.

SOD helps determine our life span, as well protect us from cancer, high blood pressure, heart & cardiovascular diseases, arthritis, chronic muscle & joint pain, digestion disorders, diabetes, circulation disorders, kidney & liver disorders, cholesterol, allergies, bronchitis, asthma, prostate, skin aliments and many other health problems.

Chaga Ingredients

Chaga Mushroom Other Key Ingredients

Siberian Chaga Mushroom is a superior grade medicinal mushroom containing over 215 phytonutrients, glyconutrients including: Betulinic Acid, Polysaccharides, Beta Glucans, Tripeptides, Triterpenes including Lanosterol-type Triterpenes, Sterols, Saponins, Inotodiols, Trametenolic Acid, Melanin.

 

High in Amino Acids, Dietary Fiber, Ionized Trace Minerals (Copper, Selenium, Zinc, Magnese, Iron), Ionized Essential minerals (Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium, Chloride, Sodium, Phosphorus), Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), Vitamin K, Vitamin D2 (Ergosterol), which is not found in vegetables.

Phytonutrients or Phytochemicals: Chaga contains over 215 Phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are certain organic components of plants, and these components are thought to promote human health. Also ORGANIC fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts and teas are rich sources of phytonutrients. Phytonutrients may serve as antioxidants, enhance immune response, enhance cell-to-cell communication, alter estrogen metabolism, convert to vitamin A (beta-carotene is metabolized to vitamin A), cause cancer cells to die (apoptosis), repair DNA damage caused by smoking and other toxic exposures, detoxify carcinogens through the activation of the cytocrome P450 and Phase II enzyme systems. Glyconutrients: Glyconutrients are plant saccharides that provide support for the immune system. Saccharides are necessary for the body’s creation of glycoforms, the structures on cell surfaces used to “talk” to other cells. Glyconutrients play a key role in supporting your immune system and promoting effective cell-to-cell communication. Recent scientific research has shown that eight simple sugars (monosaccharides)—most of which are no longer found in abundance in the standard modern diet—form virtual “words of life” at the cellular level. These sugars combine with proteins and fats to create glycoforms that coat the surface of nearly every cell in the body. Glycoforms function as cellular recognition molecules that communicate the messages a body needs to function in health. These messages directly affect your natural defense (immune) and endocrine (glandular) systems, in addition to supporting proper organ and system function.

Polysaccharides: Polysaccharides function with the immune system against cancer, HIV virus, and other anti-bacterial and viral infections has been studied.

Beta Glucan: Modern scientific research demonstrate that Beta Glucans may ward off tumors, cardiovascular, immune deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, viral, bacterial, parasitic diseases. Also used for skin firming. Click here for more information.

Betulin or Betulinic Acid: Siberian Chaga contains large amounts of Betulinic Acid in a form that can be ingested orally and also contains the full spectrum of immune-stimulating phytochemicals. Chaga is the only mushroom to contain low pH Betulinic Acid which directly targets cancer cells, which are primarily low pH instructure. Also clinically proven to have anti-tumor and tumor reducing benefit. The anti-cancer properties of Betulin or Betulinic Acid, is now being studied as a chemotherapeutic agent.

Inotodiol: Has shown activity against influenza (flu) viruses A and B and various cancer cells. Inotodiols extracted from Siberia Chaga exhibit anti tumor properties, destroying Walker 256 Carcinosarcoma cancer cells and MCF-7 human adenocarcinoma mammary cells. Institutional studies at the University of Tokyo, Japan have determined the effective destruction of certain cancerous carcinosarcomas and mammary adenocarcinomas.

Triterpenes: Lower cholesterol, improves digestion, detoxifies the liver, hepatitis, chronic bronchitis, coughs and asthma. In vitro Triterpenes effective against MCF-7 cells.

Triterpenoids and Sterols: Promotes good blood circulation and assists to lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol.

Sterol: Derivatives effective for prostrate, herpes, lupus, allergies and psoriasis.

Lanosterol-linked triterpenes: Has been studied and researched by Dr. Kirsti Kahlos, School of Pharmacology, University of Helsinki, Finland. Dr. Kahlos’ team conducted studies validating the immuno-modulating impact of Lanosterol-linked triterpenes effective as a flu-vaccination and for anti-tumor applications.

Lanosterols: Lanosterols exhibit strong cytotoxicity towards carcinoma cells. Assists to lower cholesterol and reduce candidas. Anti-bacterial.

Trametenolic Acid: For non-insulin dependent diabetics.

Saponins: Saponins are glycosides mainly of the triterpenoidal type found Siberian Chaga and in vegetables (spinach, tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts). Research studies indicate it lowers the risk of cancer and lowers cholesterol. Saponins have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity.

Melanin: The Melanin produced by the Chaga mushroom demonstrates high antioxidant and genoprotective effects (Melanin Complex of Medicinal Mushroom Inonotus Obliquus, Journal of Medical Mushrooms, 2002, vol. 4). Melanin enhances the appearance of hair, skin and eyes, and restores a more youthful appearance.

Vitamin K: Effective in decreasing the appearance of spider veins and broken surface capillaries.

Vitamin-D2 (Ergosterol): One of three vitamins able to be absorbed by the skin and the only one that the body is able to manufacture (when exposed to ultraviolet light). This vitamin is necessary for the building of new skin cells, as well as bones, teeth, and hair. This vitamin regulates cell turn over and is used in prescription derivatives to help control psoriasis. Derivatives effective for antioxidant therapy and cancer drugs.
