Chaga Mushrooms | Liquid Triple Extract
Chaga Mushrooms For Dogs & Cats
WHAT ARE CHAGA MUSHROOMS?
Chaga mushrooms are a nutrient dense superfood, high in beneficial antioxidants, polyphenols, polysaccharides, and beta glucans. Antioxidants fight harmful free radicals and oxidative stress, which are linked to the development and spread of cancer. Free radicals build up in the body, and can lead to chronic inflammation, chronic disease, and premature aging. Polyphenols protect the cells from damage, and also fight free radicals. Beta-glucans interact with immune cells to increase immune function, regulate the immune system, and decrease inflammatory responses in the body.

Organic Chaga Mushrooms
Known as the “King of Medicinal Mushrooms,” chaga is the second most antioxidant-rich food in the world next to cocoa. A nutrient-dense superfood, the chaga mushroom grows on birch trees throughout the northern hemisphere. It resembles a dark clump of dirt more than a mushroom, but is distinguished from other growths by its orange tissue. Chaga has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries, and today, doctors, alternative medicine advocates, and researchers are increasingly interested in its many health benefits.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS –
All of our mushrooms are grown in our private forest, located in Maritime Canada, or freshly foraged in British Columbia, Canada.
2 years. Do your best to store your tincture in a cool, dark place, away from direct sunlight.
Yes, research has shown that chaga mushrooms can improve health.
Chaga mushrooms have long been used for medicinal and food purposes for thousands of years, all around the world. This nutrient-dense superfood is rich in a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients.
And even though these fungi look more like clumps of dirt than medicinal powerhouses, don’t let their humble appearance fool you. The benefits they hold within are impressive for overall health.
Take a look at the existing literature and chaga mushroom research and you can’t help but be wowed.
Chaga Mushroom Research
As we continue to learn more and more about chaga mushrooms, researchers are becoming increasingly interested in the potential health benefits. Many studies on chaga mushrooms have yielded promising results.
These are just a few of the studies that exist currently, with more being done every day! Come back soon to see more!
Immune System Health
For a mushroom’s medicinal values to be activated and bioavailable, they need to be extracted. Liquid extracts are able to hold and preserve the many bioactive compounds that are released during extraction. Liquid extractions are also easier to absorb than powder, as the body doesn’t need to digest anything, and therefore the medicinal properties of the mushroom can be absorbed right into the body. We break down our mushrooms using a three-step (triple extraction) process, the first with hot water, the second with organic alcohol (which is the only way of extracting triterpenes), and the third with glycerin. Once the extraction process is complete, there is 0% alcohol left, and each batch is tested to ensure this level.
The only way to get mycelium is if you’re growing the mushrooms in a bag. When that happens, it’s virtually impossible to remove the substrate in which the mushroom is grown (rice, oats, etc.). The majority of mycelium that’s out there is coming from mushrooms grown in bags, industrially, not on a log. Our mushrooms are all grown IN Nature. In the forest, as Nature intended. You’re not going to dig out a log and pull out the mycelium. The roots weave all into the log and you just couldn’t do that.With mushrooms grown in bags, when the mycelium is pulled out, the polyphenols are not coming from the mushrooms – they’re coming from those substrates. What people are seeing now is these mushrooms have such high levels of polyphenols from the oats or rice – not just from the mushrooms themselves. The other thing about using rice and oats is they have to be sterile, otherwise they’ll grow mold. So then you have to ask how ‘smart’ that mycelium is, because there’s no intelligence coming from the bacteria. We don’t believe it has that ancient wisdom. For Julie, the basis of her mushroom knowledge is coming more from the old wisdom of using mushrooms. This means using the fruiting bodies. The different elders Julie has learned from, those around the world who use medicinal mushrooms therapeutically, use the fruiting bodies. The mycelium is newer science. Until we can be sure people are only getting mushroom – no substrates – we keep to this way.
