Throughout the northern latitudes, the mushroom chaga is found attached to trees like birch, alder, beech and other hardwooods. Botanically nown as a polypore, the mushroom looks somewhat like coat - a brownish-black mass often seen on tree trunks.
In China, Siberia, Finland, Japan, Poland and North America, ancient and naitve peoples have long known the benefits of chaga, taken in tea, ingested as a powder, inhaled as smoke or applied to the skin. In an ancient treatise, the Chinese monk Shen Nong declared in 100 B.C. that chaga is..."a precious gift of nature."
In modern research, chaga has been shown to have 215 phytonutrients, including 29 beta-glucans. Chaga also absorbs a nutrient from the outer birch tree bark: betulin, a natural anti-inflammatory. Among the components in chaga are triterpenes, sterols, beta-glucans, flavanoids, melanins, polyphenols, saponins, lignin, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and fibers. This fascinating combination of nutrients is being studied worldwide. Preliminary studies suggest that chaga triggers immune responses and protects the cell with antioxidant activity.
Planetary Herbals brings this centuries-old compound to modern people in two convenient forms: 1,000 mg tablets and a 1:4 liquid extract. Both may support the immune system, antioxidant defenses, and overall cellular health and wellness.
